White Paper // AAEON Takes “EPIC” Steps Beyond the Standard




AAEON Takes “EPIC” Steps Beyond the Standard

EPIC standard for SBCs was intended to fill the gap that existed between the small, stackable PC/104 solutions and the larger EBX solutions.

AAEON’s EPIC products provide a comprehensive set of core functionalities and renders additional modules unnecessary.

Dude, where’s my tablet?

RTC 700M

There are many reasons for a professional to opt for a rugged tablet instead of a consumer/commercial one,

many of which have been underlined by ourselves at AAEON as well as by our respected colleagues in the ruggedized device world. I’m sure you’ve seen the list before, but just to jog your memory:

  1. Failure rate of non-rugged devices are 100% more likely to break down compared to a rugged device*.
  2. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO): Over a lifespan of 5 years a consumer device can cost you over 50% more* of a rugged device investment as you’ll likely have to replace the consumer device 2-3 times in this period, not even taking into account the working time which was lost caused by the failures.
  3. Connectivity: Consumer devices are designed to look sleek and are therefore not fit to have enterprise I/O’s on board, such as an Ethernet connector, dedicated Barcode Scanner, COM-port or full-size USB ports allowing you to easily interact with printers, flash drives, keyboards, pin-pads, industrial networks and many more.

Apart from these (obvious) ones, there is a “hidden” feature that came to my attention by talking to numerous end-users;

  1. “Theft-proof”: As mentioned before, consumer devices are designed to look sleek and shiny; exactly the sort of things thieves are after…Rugged devices are not so hot among thieves as these prove not to be quick-sellers. Next to that, our RTC Android 5.1 and Windows 10 IOT Enterprise devices do not have Google Play Store or Windows Store on them. This means, even if the thief can get over the fact it does not look so sexy, the lack of “gaming/social media potential” will do the trick, leaving the device where it should be: At the job site. I am sure your company does not knowingly employ or does business with people who steal, but better safe than sorry…

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”.
