AAEON Releases FWS-2250, Ultra Compact Fanless Desktop Network Appliance at Computex

With compact design and size targeting SMB and SOHO markets

Taipei, Taiwan — AAEON®, a major developer of industrial computing solutions, today released the world’s smallest network appliance, the FWS-2250.

The compact chassis and use of the Intel® Atom™ E3815 processor has resulted in a highly affordable SMB/SOHO desktop unit. Equipped with four GbE ports with Intel controllers and with up to 8 GB installed in the two memory slots, there is ample memory, processing power and networking capability for applications such as small firewalls, IDS/IPS, load balancing, network access control, bandwidth management, web filters and anti-spam applications. Drawing only about 20 watts, the low power consumption is an added benefit.

The AAEON FWS-2250 also offers a good selection of I/O ports. In addition to the LAN ports, there are also a CompactFlash™ socket, an RJ-45 console port and three USB ports. Furthermore, there is an optional Mini-PCIe port and bypass on one pair of the Ethernet ports.

The greatest benefit considered to its compact size. “Compared to our competitors, the FWS-2250 is about 30% smaller in size, which save customers’ shipping expense and provides SMB/SOHO users with secure and stylish network appliance” said Wayne Chen, CTO of AAEON. “We also offer a competitive price within the fanless solution market.”

Samples of the FWS-2250 will be revealed to the public in AAEON’s booth at Computex in Taipei June 3- 7, 2014 (booth K0315a).
