Backplane Systems Technology is pleased to introduce IBASE’s New FWA8800 Performance 1U Rackmount Network Appliance with AMD EPYC™ Embedded 3000 Series & up to 16 GbE Ports.
The FWA880 is the world’s first Network Appliance based on the AMD EPYC™ Embedded 3000 Series processors. The high-performance FWA8800 1U Rackmount Appliance houses the IBASE MBN806 motherboard, which is powered by a 1.5GHz (Max. Boost 3.1GHz), eight-core EPYC Embedded 3201 SoC, and supporting up to 64GB UDIMM or 128GB RDIMM DDR memory with a frequency of 2667MHz in the ECC or non ECC version.
Integrating the FWA8800 with the AMD EPYC™ Embedded 3000 Series, Network vendors can benefit from a significant boost in processor performance, flexible system configuration, and reliable system operation. The FWA8800 is optimised for throughput performance and high-density deployments in applications such as network security, VPN/SDN/NFV/SD-WAN, and data management and analytics.
The highly scalable FWA8800 utilises the Intel® I210-AT Ethernet controller and two NIC modules to accommodate two IBN cards for up to 16 Gigabit Ethernet Ports. Customers may opt to have four NIC modules in the system for a maximum of 32 GbE Ports. The available expansions and connectivity options come in the form of a PCIe(x8) slot for standard PCIe cards, 2x SATA III Ports, 2x USB 2.0 Ports, and an M.2 slot with PCIe(x4) and SATA signals. Alongside the Ethernet Ports is an LCM with 4-key keypad. Additionally, VGA output can be added through an optional IPMI module.
