FWS-2280 supports multiple wireless connections
Powered by the Intel Atom x6000E, Celeron and Pentium N and J series processors (formerly Elkhart Lake), the FWS-2280 is a desktop network appliance designed to power network applications including UTM, Firewall, SD-WAN and VPN.
Aaeon has combined the Intel Atom x6000E, Celeron and Pentium N and J series processors with up to 32Gbyte of RAM. This allows the system to handle intensive networking applications, according to the company. The Intel processor in particular helps bring a host of technologies designed for more secure encryption and faster, more accurate connections, such as Intel AES-NI.
The FWS-2280 is equipped with four copper Gigabit RJ-45 LAN ports and one fibre small form-factor pluggable (SFP) port, allowing fast, direct connections. It has six antenna ports and three Mini PCIe slots (co-lay with M.2), allowing up to three expansion modules to be installed at the same time. Multiple overlapping Wi-fi and Bluetooth networks can be deployed as well as support for cellular WWAN deployments using 4G and 5G communication.
There is also a redundant power supply to help keep networks connected even if one power source fails. A 2.5-inch SATA drive bay helps power local network storage needs.
“The FWS-2280 is designed to deliver a network solution which provides faster, safer, more accurate data transfer,” said Caridee Hung, product manager with Aaeon’s Network Systems division. “The support for multiple wireless connections, including 5G, makes it perfect for deployment in areas with unreliable physical internet connections; and the Intel Atom x6000E processors power modern network applications including unified threat management and SD-WAN.”
Aaeon offers a range of manufacturer services which can customise the layout of network system, from powering working from home with VPN and firewall technology, to providing a uCPE white box platform for secure SD-WAN networks.
