Compact Apollo Lake net appliance offers SATA and LAN bypass

Oct 23, 2018 — by Eric Brown 732 views

Aaeon’s FWS-2276 network appliance is equipped with a Celeron N3350 SoC, 4x GbE ports with one-pair bypass, a 2.5-inch SATA bay, 2x USB 3.0 ports, and shock and vibration resistance.

Aaeon announced an entry level, 165 x 92 x 40mm FWS-2276 network appliance that is closely based on its earlier FWS-2272. The main differences include the FWS-2276 dropping the earlier wireless support in favor of adding a 2.5-inch SATA bay and a single-pair LAN bypass function “to safeguard the flow of network traffic in the event of software complications or loss of power.” The company notes, however, that “since the system boards and chassis are cross-compatible, buyers can custom-order appliances with the features they need to suit their requirements.”

The only other difference we saw was that while the FWS-2272 shipped with an unusual configuration of a standard 1GB DDR4 and a slot for up to 8GB DDR3, the FWS-2276 instead offers 2GB LPDDR4 with no mention of upgrades or downgrades. Like the earlier model, the FWS-2276 runs Intel’s dual-core, 2.3GHz Celeron N3350 from the Apollo Lake generation. No OS is listed, but Linux is almost certainly supported.

For storage you get 8GB eMMC, and as noted, the SATA III interface has been extended with a 2.5-inch bay. Dual USB 3.0 ports are onboard along with 8-bit DIO. The 12V system features vibration and shock resistance. For more details, see the link to the datasheet below or check out our earlier FWS-2272 story.
