October 26, 2018 – AAEON, a developer of network computing systems, launched the FWS-2276, a desktop network appliance with four LAN ports and a 2.5” SATA HDD bay.
Designed to offer customers choice and allow AAEON to respond to requests for customized systems, the FWS-2276 board and chassis is compatible with the existing FWS-2272, and both appliances handle Software Defined-WAN (SD-WAN), Virtual Customer Premise Equipment (vCPE) technology, Unified Threat Management (UTM), Virtual Private Networking (VPN), Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDS, IPS), Firewall technology, and Load Balancing applications.
The differences between the two systems are that while the FWS-2272 offers wireless WiFi/3G/LTE support, the FWS-2276 features a 2.5” SATA HDD Bay and a bypass function to safeguard the flow of network traffic in the event of software complications or loss of power. However, since the system boards and chassis are cross-compatible, buyers can custom-order appliances with the features they need to suit their requirements.
The FWS-2276 is powered by an Intel Celeron Processor N3350 processor and has onboard LPDDR4 2GB memory and 8GB eMMC. Measuring 165 x 92 x 40mm, the appliance is suitable for crowded offices. It also houses two USB3.0 ports and a console port alongside its four LAN ports.
