Interface Masters Technologies, a leading US designer and manufacturer of OEM/ODM of networking appliances solutions swiftly executes complex partner designs. Drawing from 26 years of hardware expertise, and 60+ off-the-shelf network hardware appliances designed and manufactured in the U.S.A, the engineering process, along with partner collaboration speeds solutions to market. Additionally, design engineers focus on the hardware allowing partners time to focus on the software. All hardware is fully tested, inspected and ready for software upload and deployment.

Typical applications for the hardware are concentrated on enterprise, telecom, banking and secure government applications in US, Europe, Japan and Taiwan. Additionally, the networking hardware can be used as an Offload Assist, SSL/IPSec offload processing with performance technologies like Interface Masters’ Intel-based proprietary DataSlammerT M or used with essentially any Nvidia GPU for advanced artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning (ML).

One Portfolio, 60+ Solutions

A broad technology portfolio with multiple architectures (ARM, MIPS, x86, and PowerPC), multiple processors (NXP, Intel, Marvell and AMD), multiple switch fabrics (Broadcom and Barefoot Networks)  allow Interface Masters to swiftly execute on increasingly complex custom networking solutions. Founded on advanced design capabilities and delivering innovative results, the portfolio also enables Interface Masters to adapt to changes and make design adjustments to keep in step with each partner’s requirements.

With over 250 years of collective hardware design experience, Interface Masters’ engineering team tackles increasingly complex designs.  These challenges accommodate a variety of items including high-performance CPUs and implementing modular and semi-modular feature-rich hardware. Additionally, challenges for the design are seen in adding optional for data offloading using Interface Masters proprietary Intel-based DataSlammer™ technology or Nvidia GPUs for cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).

Network Interface Cards (NIC) are another family of products that provide a low power, low profile form factor means of interfacing with a network. Interface Masters’ family of NICs consists of server adapters, bypass, encryption and smart Network Interface Cards. These Intel and Marvell-based network interface cards come in two, four, and six-port and support 1GE/10GE/25GE/100GE interfaces.

Engineering Capabilities and Expertise

The Interface Masters team of hardware design engineers brings comprehensive know-how to the design and hardware expertise ensuring accurate, reliable results for our partners. The team closely adheres to the partner’s hardware requirements while employing its broad expertise of network switch and appliance requiring integration, setup, and securing knowledge for elements such as ANSYS Power Integrity (PI) simulations, ANSYS Signal Integrity (SI) simulations, complex mechanical design, ANSYS thermal simulations and power design for all ARM, x86 and all switch fabrics.

As an OEM/ODM to Fortune 100 companies and startup partners, Interface Masters’ engineers with the operations team bring their full capabilities to partner solutions. These capabilities ensure secure, reliable, fully tested long product life cycle (seven years) solutions for our partners enabling continuity through all phases of product rollouts and servicing.

Partner requirements may require faster processors, security features or unique power needs. For example, our engineering team’s experience includes best-practices for working with a range of processors, multi-core processors (up to 64-Core), x86 and GPU offloading technology, and integrating and supporting a variety of options like a Trusted Platform Module (TPM), FIPS 140-3 Level 3 and complex battery charging/monitoring. Adding features into the design like field-replaceable fans, hot-swap power supplies (AC or DC) and thermally optimized solutions ensure system protection and facilitate hardware setup.

Project Process Success

A flexible process for immediate, consistent execution on complex partner designs is critical for networking hardware design success. Stay agile, stay successful.

The custom solution process allows the partner to offload the hardware design to Interface Masters and focus their efforts on software design. The benefits of the process speed design and manufacturing,  allowing us the flexibility to attend to issues that surface during the project.
The success-oriented process results in expertly engineered networking hardware design based on key program requirements:

  • Capture partner’s detailed design requirements (sometimes changing requirements)
  • Work from an accurate, detailed project timeline to set the foundation for success
  • Identify Interface Masters’ core team activities and deliverables
  • Communicate often, organize and scrum regularly
  • Fully tested software development kit (SDK) – ready for customer’s software load
  • Full documentation
