vCPE SAF4101I and SAF4100I

The SAF4101I and SAF4100I are high-performance open appliances based on standard Intel® x86 communications hardware platforms. These platforms are truly open, either install available operating system and application software that suits your needs, or build your own customized security device that represents a solid future-proof investment. The flexible platforms support a range of fixed Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The designs include internal SATA, M.2, and eUSB disk drives, all contained within a single 1RU rack-mount or desktop form-factor. These devices are ideal as a Unified Threat Management (UTM) gateway, WAN optimization appliance, or virtual CPE device.
