Apollo Lake based network appliance runs Ubuntu

Apr 12, 2019 — by Eric Brown 852 views

Acrosser’s Linux-ready “AND-APL1N1FL” network appliance offers an Apollo Lake SoC, 6x GbE ports with 3x LAN bypass, and SATA III storage.

Acrosser announced an “entry level” and “cost-effective” network appliance for small office network, UTM, mail server, and firewall applications. The AND-APL1N1FL runs Ubuntu 18.04 with Linux Kernel 4.4 and above or Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSB on an Intel Apollo Lake SoC.

Like Acrosser’s Atom C3558 (“Denverton”) based AND-DNV3N2 appliance, the AND-APL1N1FL is available with 6x Gigabit Ethernet ports (Intel I210-AT). Although it lacks that model’s optional support for SFP ports, it offers 3-pair LAN bypass instead of 2-pair bypass.

The AND-APL1N1FL supports the full range of Intel Apollo Lake Atom, Pentium, and Celeron system-on-chips up to a quad-core Atom E3950. (The product page also suggests support for the Atom C3558, but this is not mentioned in the announcement or datasheet.)


The AND-APL1N1FL supports up to 8GB DDR3L-1866 and provides CFast and SATA 3.0 (or mSATA) storage. The system is further equipped with 3x USB 3.0 ports, a console port, 8-bit GPIO, and an internal VGA header. A mini-PCIe slot supports optional WiFi or 4G kits with external antennas.

The 280 x 209 x 44mm system has a 12V input with a 60W adapter and supports 0 to 40°C temperatures. Other features include a watchdog timer, hardware monitoring, TPM 2.0 security, and LEDs.

Samples of the AND-APL1N1FL network appliance are available upon request, with pricing undisclosed. More information may be found in Acrosser’s AND-APL1N1FL announcement and product page.
