Freescale Semiconductor and Jungo Ltd. have collaborated to deliver an Office-in-a-Box reference platform for the small-medium business (SMB) multi-service gateway market. The Office-in-a-Box platform blends Jungo's field-proven OpenSMB software with Freescale's MPC8349E mITX reference board. The versatile board features the MPC8349E PowerQUICC™ II Pro processor containing a core built on Power Architecture technology and Vitesse's SparX Gigabit Ethernet switch technology.
Based on the MPC8349E PowerQUICC™ II Pro integrated communications processor, this reference platform enables network equipment vendors to develop products that support a rich suite of information technology (IT) services and capabilities, such as voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), IP-PBX, Gigabit Ethernet LAN switch, stateful packet inspection (SPI) firewall, virtual private network (VPN) router, application-aware quality of service (QoS), print server and network-attached storage (NAS).
The Office-in-a-Box reference platform is available in the compact, 170mm x 170mm mini-ITX form factor, which makes it easy to design small-footprint home NAS systems. The hardware centerpiece of the reference platform is the MPC8349E mITX reference board, featuring the 667-MHz MPC8349E PowerQUICC II Pro processor. The platform also includes a robust memory subsystem, a four-port USB 2.0 interface, a 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, a 5-port Gigabit Ethernet switch from Vitesse, an on-board 4-port PCI serial advanced technology attachment (SATA) controller, a 32-bit PCI slot, a 32-bit MiniPCI slot, a two-port RS-232C interface, a power supply and a SATA hard drive.
The OpenRG™ and OpenSMB™ gateway platforms from Jungo® are Linux®-based software platforms specifically optimized for the Freescale MPC8349E-mITX Office-in-a-Box reference platform, allowing Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to develop high-quality solutions with a wide range of applications and services. The MPC8349E-mITX reference platform and Jungo's software provide a complete and integrated solution for designing SMB gateways. Create a fully functional gateway within minutes, using the hardware/software reference design.
