Advantech Upgrades Enterprise Connectivity with new Edge Appliance based on Intel Atom Processors
The FWA-1013 optimizes enterprise network performance with a scalable, compact and power efficient platform that enables next generation uCPE, SD-WAN, SASE and network security applications powered by new Intel Atom® C5000/P5000 Processors.
June 6th, 2022, Taipei, Taiwan - Advantech, a global leader in industrial IoT, today introduced a new network appliance based on the Intel Atom® processor to optimize security edge deployment performance for service providers and enterprise. The new platform improves throughput for universal Customer Premise Equipment (uCPE), software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) and next generation cloud-based security applications. The solution has been designed to meet Small and Medium Business (SMB) connectivity needs with rich GbE and wireless interface options in a compact desktop appliance that can scale to meet light and heavy branch strategies.
The Advantech FWA-1013 scales performance of Intel Atom processors from 4 to 16 cores. The platform supports flexible 1, 2.5 and 10 GbE network interfaces to meet a wide range of deployment needs. It also provides an extra Network Mezzanine Card slot to integrate additional Ethernet, PoE or wireless 4G LTE or 5G connectivity. The FWA-1013 has been specifically designed to streamline network operations and minimize downtime. It integrates Advantech’s remote management which supports Redfish and advance reliability features such as failsafe remote BIOS and firmware updates and dual power modules. All this combined with its compact design and desktop form factor makes the FWA-1013 the platform of choice for mainstream small and medium size branches.
