Cultivating a Smart Office Ecosystem for Small Businesses with PUZZLE-100

A smart office creates a connected and intelligent workspace that responds to dynamic requirements of modern businesses and technology trends. With compact form factor, seamless connectivity, and enhanced security, our latest ARM-based desktop network appliance powered by Marvell® ARMADA® 7040 Quad-Core CPU, the PUZZLE-100, allows small businesses to quickly transform their offices into a smart, efficient, and secure work environment that fosters productivity and innovation, while remaining a cost-effective solution.

Your Gateway to Enhanced Performance and Security

Unlocking the true potential of our PUZZLE-100 is the Marvell® ARMADA® 7040 Quad-Core A72 processor. The processor features four ARM Cortex-A72 cores, which are designed to handle complex tasks and offer improved performance compared to previous generations. The PUZZLE-100, with its energy-efficient ARM processor, seamlessly manages a wide array of networking that require robust networking processing, data handling and energy efficiency. This convergence contributes to streamlined operations, resource optimization, and reduced operating costs.

Strengthened security

With the strong focus on security, the ARMADA® 7040 processor incorporates robust security to strengthen data protection and safeguard the PUZZLE -100 against emerging security threats. The Secure Boot functionality guarantees a trusted boot process, while Hardware RNG generates random numbers that are resistant to easy prediction, ensuring cryptographic security. In addition, Arm® TrustZone provides an isolated execution environment to keep sensitive applications shielded from potential threats, and JTAG debugging can be securely configured to limit debugging access to authorized personnel or tools. Together, these functionalities fortify the processor's security, ensuring a resilient and secure computing experience.

Energy-efficient design

Leveraging RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Architecture) to simply processor’s microarchitecture and implementing SoC design, where multiple system components are combined into a single chip, ARM processors are optimized to operate at lower voltages and power levels, resulting exceptional energy efficiency.

Effortless Connectivity

The presence of the WAN port not only allows for easy connection to the internet, but also can facilitate communication with other networks beyond the local network. Simultaneously, the device’s five LAN ports deliver high throughput for handling data-intensive workloads, providing connectivity for multiple devices, including computers, access points, servers and other network-enabled devices.

Compact, Cost-effective & Future-ready

Our innovative PUZZLE-100 stands out with its exceptional energy efficiency, minimal heat production, and seamless component integration. These characteristics enable a remarkably compact form factor without the necessity for bulky cooling systems. With its reduced footprint and featherweight 0.45kg design, it optimizes space utilization, making it a compelling solution for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) dealing with limited office spaces. This compact size not only streamlines installation but also facilitates seamless integration into your existing IT infrastructure, providing an affordable option for businesses with budget constraints.

Multi-functional Appliance Tailored to SMBs

The small footprint, energy efficient processor and abundant integrated connectivity of our PUZZLE-100 make it suitable for performing wide range of networking tasks and applications with SMB environments. ARM-based systems also benefit from a large community of developers, which, in turn, empowers SMBs by offering a rich array of compatible software and firmware options to suit their specific networking needs

VPN Concentrator

The built-in hardware security features of the PUZZLE-100 significantly contribute to the deployment of network security functions, ensuring the overall security posture and reliability of the appliance. The energy-efficient design allows the PUZZLE-100 to operate with minimal power consumption and generate less heat, making it well-suited for 24/7 firewall applications, while also promising an extended life span.

This versatile system excels at dynamically controlling and optimizing the routing of data packets within SMB networks, enhancing network efficiency and seamlessly adapting to evolving conditions.

The PUZZLE-100 provides excellent performance to act as a central VPN hub, managing multiple VPN connections from branch offices with identity authentication, data encryption/decryption, and traffic routing, ensuring these connections are routed to appropriate destinations. Its multiple Ethernet ports support allows for deployment of a small-scale VPN network, offering secure remote access to company’s local network from any external location.
