Media Flow Controller Overview : System and Hardware : System Requirements

System Requirements
The following are required and/or recommended for Media Flow Controller optimal performance.
One quad-core (2.0 GHz or higher) x86 64-bit processor (second quad-core processor recommended for future capacity expansion).
Minimum of 8GB. The actual amount of RAM depends on system requirements like throughput sessions per seconds, etc.
Dedicated 1GbE port. Note that network ports on the motherboard use lower performance controllers adequate for a management interface that typically does not require the full GbE capacity.
Delivery Network Link Aggregation
Media Flow Controller supports LACP (Link Aggregation Control Protocol) to provide redundancy and conserve IP addresses. A part of IEEE specification 802.3ad, LACP controls the bundling of several physical ports together to form a single logical channel. LACP allows a network device to negotiate an automatic bundling of links by sending LACP packets to the peer (directly connected device that also implements LACP).
Media Flow Controller supports local boot from CD-ROM or USB flash drive, or Net Boot (PXE Boot) for installation. Media Flow Controller runs from the local HDD (hard disk drive).
Console Port
Media Flow Controller provides a serial console port, USB, DB?9 serial, or VGA (video graphics array), for configuration.
