Backplane Systems Technology introduces IBASE’s new FWA8800 high performance
1U rackmount network appliance with AMD EPYC embedded 3000 Series and up to 16
The world’s first network appliance based on the AMD EPYC embedded 3000
Series processors, the high-performance FWA8800 1U houses the IBASE MBN806
motherboard, which is powered by a 1.5GHz (max. boost 3.1GHz), eight-core EPYC embedded
3201 SoC, and supports up to 64GB UDIMM or 128GB RDIMM DDR memory with a
frequency of 2667MHz in the ECC or non ECC version.
By 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 a 4-key keypad. Additionally, VGA
output can be added through an optional IPMI module.
The FWA8800 network appliance is also optionally available with two hot-swappable
2.5″ drive bays.
