The FB2900 is the latest generation of FireBrick network appliances designed primarily to provide a complete Internet connection gateway for offices. Featuring fallback and line bonding, IPv4 & IPv6 firewalling, port mapping, and traffic shaping and a variety of VPN options including IPsec with IKEv2, it can even operate as a VoIP phone system (PBX) providing a range of features for an office. The FB2900 is equally at home in an Office environment or in a telephone exchange acting as a small BRAS.

The FB2900 has a standard IEC C7 (Figure 8) power connector for mains power, but also available are two DC versions:
Both of the DC versions use an "Anderson Powerpole" connector and come complete with the corresponding plug and 5m length of wire. See: Measuring power usage for the FB2900-A. DC versions do have a higher cost, get in touch for a quote.
The hardware platform is identical between the two variants of the product. This means it is possible to upgrade remotely from Base to Fully Loaded. The differences in the feature sets are listed above, but the most common usage case where Fully Loaded is required is where the site needs line bonding.
The FB2900 has a 5 year warranty.
Software upgrades are free to download for the life of the product.
