The FB2700 is no longer available for new supply. Please look at the FB2900 as an alternative.
Software updates, including new features, are still being added.
The FB2700 is a hardware firewall/router. It provides a wide range of features for the small/medium business market. Its main role is as the gateway between your internet connection (DSL router/modem, FTTC, FTTP, leased line, etc) and your office network. It provides firewall functions stopping any unwanted direct connections in to your network, but it has many more features which are invaluable to small businesses.
With the demise of the old internet (IPv4) companies are having to work out how to get their office network on to the current internet protocols (IPv6). Without this they will find increasing problems with access to parts of the internet as well as more of more of the usual issues with Network Address Translation (NAT). IPv6 provides a means to have real IP addresses on your network with the FireBrick providing firewalling and control that you need. Even if your internet provider does not support IPv6 yet (and you should really find a new one if that is the case) you can gain most of the advantages of IPv6 using the FireBrick as your network gateway.
Just like the FB2500, there are two models of FB2700.
We have tried to keep the models simple, you can either buy the base model or the full loaded model.
The base model has all of the core functions providing routing and firewalling and DHCP server and 3G dongle support.
The fully loaded also has a limited BGP capability, L2TP server, PPPoE server (acting as a BRAS), bonding (VRRP, L2TP, PPP, gateway) and FB105 tunnels.
As an alternative, the FB2500 provides most of the same options at a lower price. It is only capable of 100Mb/s throughput total (both ways added) and does not offer 3G backup.
