Designed to offer customers more choice and allow AAEON to respond more quickly to requests for customized systems, the FWS-2276 board and chassis is compatible with the existing FWS-2272, and both appliances effectively 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 only 165 x 92 x 40mm, the appliance is small enough for even the most crowded offices. Despite its modest dimensions, it still houses two USB3.0 ports and a console port alongside its four LAN ports.
The system features an innovative housing design that allows the chassis to be removed by undoing a single screw. This user-friendly detail means any necessary maintenance work can be carried out quickly and easily.
