AAEON’s FWS-7520 Brings Enhanced Network Security with Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1500 Family


The Xeon D-1500 Processors Debuts in AAEON

(Taipei, Taiwan) November 5th, 2015 — With the internet gaining prominence day by day, the need to keep it safe and secure grows. AAEON®, a major developer of industrial computing solutions, is set to do just that with the FWS-7520 network appliance.

Powered by Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1500, this device grants native support for the advanced DDR4, REG, ECC or non-ECC memory, up to 128 GB and the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) specification that makes remote control and off-site monitoring of the device’s status possible, safeguarding the networking from any sudden failures.

Furthermore, the chip, a member of the Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1500 Family, is Intel’s 3rd generation 64-bit SoC and the first based on Intel Xeon processor technology, a setup that expands the traditional Xeon power footprint by providing SKUs ranging 19 W to 45 W for low power designs while providing enhanced overall performance.

The device itself is designed to work with three additional AAEON Network Interface Modules (NIM) that boost the maximum number of LAN ports to 27 (3 included on the device itself), offering speeds of both 1GbE and 10GbE with copper and/or fiber and 40GbE fiber connection support. LAN bypass is also available for selected NIMs.

Two SKUs offer two different power options: One with 180W PSU and the other with additional220W for power redundancy and improved reliability.
“We are excited to introduce the FWS-7520, as it is the first AAEON product to equip both the Intel® Xeon® processor D-1500 and IPMI specification”, said Wayne Hou, Product Manager of AAEON’s Intelligent Services Division. “This may potentially set the benchmark for AAEON’s future network appliances”.
