Intel® QuickAssist Technology integrates hardware acceleration of compute intensive workloads. It can maximize CPU utilization and achieve well improvement, which includes symmetric encryption and authentication, asymmetric encryption, digital signatures, RSA, DH, ECC, and lossless data compression.

PCI Express 4.0 Ready

Double Bandwidth, Double Speed

To achieve the bandwidth requirements of big data/networking /AIoT applications, the PUZZLE-IN005 supports PCIe 4.0 to either increase the lane width or speed. It has doubled the throughput to 16GT/s, compared to 8GT/s for PCIe 3.0, delivering higher performance and low latency.

Smarter Fan Operation 4+1

Overheating? It’s Not a Problem!

The PUZZLE-IN005 features smart fan operation which uses 4+1 hot-swappable fans to provide strong cooling convection and high reliability for uninterrupted service. Moreover, users are able to manage the fan system and noise production by defining the fan trigger settings.

Scalable Expansion Capability

Diverse Selections, Different Combinations

The PUZZLE-IN005 is designed with eight network module expansion slots to add on different functions, bandwidths or even SSD for more storage needs. In addition, it has one PCIe x8 slot to adopt AI accelerating card or add-on cards for improving performance and efficiency.

High Speed Storage with U.2 NVMe

Low Latency, Low Power

The U.2 SSD interface features high-speed, low-latency and low-power NVMe standard protocol. PUZZLE-IN005 support PCIe 4.0 channel which provides data transmission speed is up to 7000MB/s while PCIe 3.0 U.2 is 3200MB/s, and SATA is 500MB/s. It is 2 times faster than PCIe 3.0 U.2 and 10 times faster than SATA.

  • 5G MEC

  • 5G O-RAN

  • AI Solution

SD-WAN Solution

SD-WAN can reduce your WAN costs by up to 90 percent because it supplements or replaces dedicated private WAN networks, which usually are MPLS, with regular broadband connectivity. By using this, enterprises can get the flexibility and cost savings of SD-WAN and at the same time minimize the headache of managing the infrastructure and connectivity. Moreover, the traffic can be automatically and dynamically transferred based on network status, security, and service quality requirements.


5G MEC Solution

5G MEC is a network solution to providing IT service and telecommunication network at the edge. The PUZZLE-IN005 brings services closer to users, and provides ultra-low latency, high bandwidth, virtualization application and reliable network solution.


5G O-RAN Solution

An Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN) is a concept based on interoperability and standardization of RAN elements. Open RAN is a totally disaggregated approach to deploying mobile fronthaul and midhaul networks. It provides new avenues for RAN customization and flexibility by developing different parts of the network function virtualization.


AI Ready Solution

With high computing capability and bandwidth, the PUZZLE-IN005 is deal for networking, AI training and inference service. It is equipped with one PCIe x 8 slot to support various graphic cards, such as Intel® VPU acceleration cards, Google TPU cards and NVIDIA cards to offer faster and higher computing performance. Moreover, it is compliant with OpenNESS which can enable an easy-to-use software platform for edge computing and smoothly move applications from cloud to network or on-premise edge to bring your AI insights into business in AIoT markets.
