(Taipei, Taiwan – March 16, 2022) – AAEON, an industry leader in network white box solutions, announces the FWS-2277 compact desktop network appliance. Not much larger than typical consumer grade network switches, the FWS-2277 delivers the performance and functionality to bring network functions to Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) deployments, including Unified Threat Management (UTM), VPN, and Next Generation Firewall (NGFW).

With many offices and businesses incorporating Work from Home and Small Office network deployments, many service providers are in search of a compact solution that can power modern network functions while remaining unobtrusive and within their clients’ budgets. The FWS-2277 solves this by delivering exactly the features needed to power SOHO networks, in a compact platform that avoids the trend of carcinization most routers and appliances seem to follow these days.

The FWS-2277 is powered by the Intel® Celeron® N3350 processor (formerly Apollo Lake) with built-in Intel® AES-NI, providing data encryption that is secure with faster processing than standard AES. The FWS-2277 features two Gigabit LAN ports, and is certified for wireless networks including Wi-Fi (11a/b/g/n/ac 2Tx2R) and Bluetooth (V5.0 LE). The system also features HDMI and two USB ports to connect and control directly.

With a rugged metal chassis and exactly the features needed to power small networks, the FWS-2277 is perfect for deploying remote access VPN networks to home offices and other small networks, with its two LAN ports to connect to the internet and a desktop PC or network switch, and the Wi-Fi enabling mobile devices like laptops and tablet PCs to join the VPN network.

“By focusing on the exact needs for SOHO deployments without any unwanted extras, the FWS-2277 delivers a spartan package that is budget friendly while still delivering the tools and performance needed to deploy secure and reliable networks,” said Caridee Hung, Product Manager with AAEON’s Network System Division. “The compact design makes it even easier for service providers to deploy and set up, allowing wide area networks to be deployed quickly.”
