Flexibility & Security Boost for Accelerated Digital Transformation

The working scenarios have changed in recent years, switching to the new hybrid work model which allows employees to work partly in the office, and partly remotely. With the adaption to the hybrid workplace environment, organizations need to move to the cloud for constant and uninterrupted data access for their employees. As the number of bandwidth-intense applications and security issues are growing, modern solutions like SD-WAN are must-have for businesses to ensure the high-speed and secure connectivity, plus greater flexibility than the traditional network.

Small Form Factor Network Appliance Powered by
High-Speed LAN Ports

Featuring low power consumption, powerful computing performance and high-speed LAN ports from 2.5GbE to 10GbE, IEI's PUZZLE-3032 desktop network appliance is designed to facilitate the SD-WAN deployment by offering reliable and rapid data transmission, as well as a flexible way to develop uCPE platforms with reduced overhead costs. Its desktop form factor (285 x 236.6 x 46.65 mm) makes it suitable to fit in offices with limited space. The PUZZLE-3032 is optimal for small and medium-sized companies when it comes to building a SD-WAN infrastructure with additional virtual network functions to accelerate the digital transformation and, afterwards, improve business productivity.

Low Power, Efficient Performance for Network Solutions

Powered by server-grade Intel® Atom® C3558R processor with DDR4 2400 memory support and SoC design, the PUZZLE-3032 is capable of processing data intensive workloads to the network edge, while requiring less power, thanks to Intel optimized 14nm process technology with the range of TDP from only 17 to 26 watts. Built-in hardware virtualization with Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) enables dynamic provisioning, providing faster performance for NFV extension.

Affordable Multi-Gigabit Upgrade for Enhanced Performance

With eight 2.5GbE and two 10GbE SFP+ ports, the PUZZLE-3032 provides 2.5x or even 10x increase in throughput compared with the 1GbE solution, empowering network possibilities with faster data transfer speeds in virtualization environments.

The 10 GbE connectivity is characterized by high-speed data transmission and reliable security, which meets high-bandwidth requirements on transferring large amounts of data quickly in corporate networks and reducing traffic jam on enterprise servers. The 10 GbE SFP+ solution that the PUZZLE-3032 comes with can support distances more than 10 kilometers with single-mode optical fiber, consumes less power and provides lower latency, which makes it ideal for network architecture across large distances.

For small businesses, 2.5 GbE is a more attractive option since it supports various connection speeds between 100 Mbps and 2.5 Gbps on CAT 6 and CAT 5e cables, which means user can experience the full capability of high-performance network solutions without significant costs for upgrading cables.

Multipe Expansion Options for Rapid Data Leverage & Additional Storage

In addition to its built-in storage of 64GB eMMC, the PUZZLE-3032 comes with one M.2 2242 and dual M.2 2280 NVMe SSD slots, which provide faster file access, more efficient data processing and storage expansion.

Flexible & Agile uCPE Solution for Diverse Applications

uCPE (Universal Customer Premise Equipment) integrates computing, storage, and network on COTS products (commercial off-the-shelf) that offer networking services on SD-WAN. Based on the SD-WAN architecture, white boxes uCPEs can not only perform networking functions but also contribute to SD-WAN security thanks to its security function virtualization. Given these characteristics, capex and network opex are also reduced alongside less demand for hardware replacement and lower maintenance costs.

As a cost-effective and flexible uCPE solution, the PUZZLE-3032 can be served to easily build wide range of use cases in an SD-WAN environment to enhance performance and security for efficient hybrid working strategy.



The PUZZLE-3032 can be used to connect branch locations and remote workers' PC to an organization's headquarters and server. The use of PUZZLE-3032 not only easily improves enterprise network through remote software upgrades, but also makes the deployment of new branches and network operation less expensive.

The compact form factor and high-speed LAN ports of PUZZLE-3032 enable it to deploy firewall services in virtualized network where the work space is limited, without additional costs for hardware-based equipment
