AAEON’s FWS-2260 to Secure Small-scale Networks with New Gen Processor

(Taipei, Taiwan) April 12, 2016 —AAEON®, a leading manufacturer of advanced hardware platforms for network computing and security solutions, unveils the FWS-2260 network appliance, a table-top device meant to bring security to small-scale networks.

Available in both dual and quad-core versions of Intel® Celeron® N3000 Series SoC, the device is a multi-purpose network appliance that empowers Intrusion detection/prevention, WAN optimization, network access control, load balancing, web content filtering, unified threat management, and wireless network security.

The device’s capacity as a multi-purpose network security appliance makes it conducive in locations where there is insufficient space or too impractical for large, bulky, server-level devices, such as in branch/home offices, SMBs or retail outlets. It is also compactly designed with a dimension of 230 x 178 x 44 mm and uses a fanless thermal solution.

A powerful CPU aside, the device is made to be compatible with both wired and wireless signals as a redundancy of one another and carries six GbE LAN ports with LAN bypass (selected SKUs only). A MiniCard slot, SATA 6.0Gb/s, and USB 3.0 ports are available for expansion needs and optional TPM modules can be added for enhanced security.

“Small, secured, superior: these are the words that defines the FWS-2260” said Fredy Hsu, Product Manager of AAEON’s Network Security Division “We want to make an all-in-one appliance desirable for all administrators of small networks. And with the power of the new chips, this goal is realized with the FWS-2260”.

AAEON Announces the First COM Express Type 10 Module with the 6th Gen Intel® Core™ Series CPUs

(Taipei, Taiwan) April 7th, 2016 —AAEON®, a major developer of industrial computing solutions, reveals the groundbreaking NanoCOM-SKU, the first COM Express Type 10 Module with the 6th Gen Intel Core Series ULT CPUs.

Traditionally powered by SoCs instead of a full-fledged processor due to the limited area, which measures 84 x 55 mm (equivalent to a business card), the NanoCOM-SKU, the latest entry to the company’s NanoCOM product line, greatly improves on that with an Intel® Core™ i7-6600U CPU, along with a maximum of 4 GB of onboard DDR4 memory while drawing about 18W of power in full loading, a string of feats still unheard of in the embedded community. SKUs with other Core processors and RAM are also available.

With an exceptional level of performance but still retaining the compactness of the form factor, the module is slated to eliminate the bottlenecks and inadequacies commonly found in Atom™ or other equivalent SoC-powered modules when applied on more performance-demanding applications, which include graphics-intensive medical equipment or digital signage, and high-loading robotics and automation controllers used in industrial automation, bringing not only the best in any situation, but also opening new realm for more possibilities.

“The NanoCOM-SKU is a milestone in AAEON’s circuit design and miniaturization experience and expertise. No one has yet been able to make something so small yet packs so much punch” said David Hung, Product Manager of AAEON’s Embedded Computing Division “I can boldly claim this might be the most powerful Type10 module in the world”.

More information on the NanoCOM-SKU will be revealed soon.
