AAEON has unveiled the FWS-2365 desktop network appliance.
Designed with a range of powerful features including 5G support and four SFP+ ports, the FWS-2365 powers faster, smarter networks for SD-WAN and uCPE applications.
“With the combination of high core count Intel processors and focus on delivering greater speeds and throughput, the FWS-2365 is the perfect solution for white box uCPE and SD-WAN network applications,” said Fredy Hsu, Product Manager with AAEON’s Network Security Division. “With 5G connectivity and 10Gbps SFP+ support, it allows NFV, VNF vendors, and communications service providers (CSP) to accelerate deployment of SD-WAN, SD-security, QoS and other SDN/NFV applications.”
The FWS-2365 is powered by Intel Atom C3000 processors (formerly Denverton) with support for processors from four to sixteen cores, delivering performance to power more functions.
With the Intel processors, the system supports vital performance acceleration tools including Intel QAT, SR-IOV, AES-NI, Virtualization Technology and DPDK. The FWS-2365 also supports TPM and Secure Boot to help maximize data and system security.
The FWS-2365 is built to deliver faster network speeds and higher throughput with up to four SFP+ Fiber 10 Gbps ports, and up to six copper Gigabit LAN ports, two of which can be upgraded SFP. The FWS-2365 supports LAN Bypass functionality to provide uninterrupted connection and service.
The FWS-2365 is also built to maximize wireless performance, supporting up to three wireless expansion cards and six antennas.
The FWS-2365 can support a combination of cards including Wi-Fi, 4G and 5G cellular communication. This allows for greater support for IoT-connected devices and leverages the benefits of 5G to enable more flexible network structures.
The FWS-2365 is purpose-built for white box uCPE and SD-WAN network applications. It is easy to set up and configure for a range of NFV functions such as firewall and router, as well as VPN.
The FWS-2365 also supports Zero Touch Provision (ZTP) to make deployment, setup and network authorization even easier. The system also supports remote console connection for more flexible system management and monitoring.
