FREMONT, CA, USA, June 19, 2022 / — NEXCOM, a leading network appliance vendor, introduces ALE 1170, its new Intel-based uCPE powered by the Intel Atom family of processors. FTA 1170 is the centerpiece of the nexCPETM product line, which meets all 5G core network requirements and covers both wired and wireless broadband applications. This 1U rackmount features an impressive number of ports of various link types and speeds to provide multiple Ethernet connectivity.

Both private and public 5G networks are growing in popularity as the number of users and connected devices grows every day. More and more businesses are ready to migrate from legacy Internet access to a private 5G network, for its advanced customization in terms of security and management, higher speeds and lower latency. With relative ease of deployment, expanded functionality and great flexibility, it’s easier to choose a new appliance rather than trying to retrofit outdated equipment.

NEXCOM’s FTA 1170 uses the Intel Atom processor with integrated MAC and Intel QuickAssist Technology (QAT) for cryptographic acceleration. This 1U rackmount supports wireless connectivity through a few add-on options ranging from Wi-Fi 5/6, 4G and 5G, giving customers the most desired configuration for an effortless wireless route. For wired connectivity, there are twenty-four 2.5 GbE switch copper ports, four 10 GbE copper and fiber ports, and an expansion slot for a LAN module. FTA 1170 covers versatile use cases and works equally well as a uCPE, switch server or multiple access edge compute server (MEC).
