NEI Schedules Fiscal 2010 Fourth Quarter Conference Call
By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor
NEI, a provider of server-based application platforms, appliances and lifecycle support services for software developers and OEMs worldwide, announced that it will announce financial results for its fiscal fourth quarter, the period ended September 30, 2010, on November 4, 2010, prior to the market open.
Management also anticipates providing the financial outlook for its quarter ending December 31, 2010.
Company officials said that the conference call will be available live via the Internet by accessing the NEI web site at www.nei.com on the investor relations page.
Back in September NEI announced that it has engaged with GE Intelligent Platforms (News - Alert) to integrate GE OCTEON-based PCIe IP packet processor cards with its new N-2710 NEBS Level 3 certified rack mount server.
The combined solution is designed to perform deep packet inspection for security gateway applications such as content inspection, data security encryption/decryption
(SSL/IPSec/TLS), network monitoring, lawful interception and traffic management.
Deep packet inspection is performed as a packet passes an inspection point in order to search for non-compliance, viruses, spam, intrusions or any other predefined criteria. Many commonly used security applications incorporate stateful packet inspection, which simply checks the header of a packet.
With the internal and application threat environment rapidly evolving in today’s networks, protecting only the network edge and lower layers with stateful packet inspection techniques is no longer an acceptable risk for many businesses, resulting in the need for the more comprehensive protection offered with deep packet inspection approaches.
The N-2710 2U carrier grade server is built on the Dell (News - Alert) PowerEdge R710 server and provides dual socket support for up to two Intel Xeon 5600 Series 6-core processors, combining high performance with power efficiency to provide improved performance-per-watt over previous generation rack-mount servers.
Featuring up to 144GB DDR3 (Double Data Rate) -1333MHz Error Correcting Code (ECC) Registered Memory, the high-performing, rugged server is designed for the demanding environment of the telco central office, as well as for network data centers and enterprise networks.
The ability to install up to four PCIe I/O cards allows VARs, ISVs, NEMs, and OEMs to deliver lower-cost communications solutions and services with the N-2710 server.
