Advantech FWA-5020 1U Network Appliance

Advantech FWA-5020 1U Network Appliance

Based on the latest Intel® Xeon® processors, the FWA-5020 is a high-end 1U appliance designed for maximum performance, scalability and functionality. One or two Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v4 processors provide the latest architectural enhancements, larger on chip cache memories as well as Intel® QuickPath Interconnects for reduced cross-socket memory I/O latencies and increased throughput. Advanced thermal design enables support for processors with up to 145W on standard SKUs. This allows the appliance to scale from 12 and 14 core CPUs to the highest performance 18 core processors. The FWA-5020 integrates up to 4 GbE copper ports with advanced LAN bypass and two 10GbE SFP ports. Two Network Mezzanine Cards slots provide an option to add configurable I/O including a broad choice of GbE, 10GbE and 40GbE modules. Remote firmware upgrade and hardware-based BIOS redundancy make the FWA-5020 an ideal 1U platform for mission-critical and highly available network applications such as cybersecurity.
