Network appliance for implementation of an open source software firewall

The old firewall at the police station, based on proprietary software and hardware, was ready for an upgrade. With the ever-increasing volume of data traffic, they needed a solution that would see them through the next few years and allow for expansion and upgrades in the future. There’s a lot of attention on uCPE and its provision of high flexibility on commercial off-theshelf hardware with a generic operating system and open source software. They were looking to leverage this technology to lower both their overall capital expenditure and operating expenses, but perhaps even more importantly were interested in the flexibility of managing the related VNFs with readily available open source software.

IEI’s PUZZLE range of networking appliances offers a comprehensive assortment of options for differing applications. For our client's specific requirements we recommended the PUZZLE-IN002. With its simple design and more budget conscious feature set, the PUZZLE-IN002 strikes a more conservative balance of power to cost.

All-in-one network computer

Our client's system needed to use the Ubuntu operating system. An issue that sometimes arises is when hardware requires specific drivers that may be proprietary or even unavailable. The PUZZLE series, being designed explicitly for running software-based VNFs within a vCPE model, naturally support the open source software that powers these systems, specifically the LINUX operating system on which Ubuntu is based, and the firewall software that runs on it. Unforeseen dependencies can complicate the installation of the operating system, but the PUZZLE-IN002 has been explicitly tested and supports Ubuntu right out the box.

Provisioning of the new equipment could have been difficult and complicated if proprietary hardware had been implemented on the PUZZLE-IN002, but with the choice of readily available hardware, and pretesting for compatibility, the client's installation of Ubuntu worked flawlessly from the start. With the Ubuntu operating system running smoothly and all hardware dependencies taken care of, our client successfully installed all their required virtualization packages and quickly integrated the PUZZLE-IN002 into the VNF infrastructure.
