July 13, 2020 IBASE Technology

Taipei, Taiwan, July 7, 2020 - IBASE Technology Inc. (TPEx: 8050), a leader in the manufacture of network appliances and embedded systems, is pleased to announce its latest FWA8600 1U rackmount network computing appliance based on the Intel Xeon D-2100 processor product family and with up to 25 GbE ports. This highly scalable system is designed for managing data driven workloads and enabling robust levels of performance in enterprise network security, Unified Threat Management and WAN optimization applications.

The FWA8600 supports up to 128GB RDIMM with four DDR4-2666 DIMM sockets and one Intel I210-AT Ethernet controller. The device comes with network interface card (NIC) slots to accommodate up to three IBN cards with 8x GbE ports each and one IBN-P401Q card for a maximum of 25 GbE ports. For flexible I/O connectivity and expansion features, it offers a PCIe x8 slot, an M.2 expansion slot to interface with SATA 3.0 and PCIe x4 bus for high data throughput, as well as two USB 3.0, and an RJ45 serial console with LCM display for easy operation. LAN bypass is available in certain configuration.

"The FWA8600 features Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0 with the IBASE IDN100 module to allow users to remotely manage and monitor systems even without an operating system," said Jason Ko, senior product manager at IBASE. "As an ideal platform for cloud computing and data centers, it also supports Trusted Platform Module (TPM 2.0) to provide hardware-based security data that encrypts data and protects authentication credentials from hackers."

Furthermore, IBASE has verified the solution as an Intel Select Solution for uCPE that integrates the Ubuntu operating system and Intel Xeon D processor. These verified designs will benefit CSPs, telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs), internet service vendors (ISVs), and enterprises in implementing uCPE and SD-WANs technologies with enhanced network performance and flexibility.
