TW250 Appliances


TW250The TCPWave TW250 appliance is a small, affordable, yet powerful DDI hardened appliance ideal for remote DNS/DHCP operations. The TW250 hardened server is based on the rock solid, industry-proven Dell PowerEdge R250. Together, TCPWave and Dell specify, validate, and deliver a platform consisting of TCPWave secure software that optimally controls and future proofs your DDI environment


The TW250 is available in the Remote configuration which provides the secure communication layer along with DNS/DHCP and other network services (NTP, SNMP, resiliency) that are tailored to provide non-stop DNS/DHCP functionality.

An IPAM appliance must also be included to provide the IP Address Management functionality.

The IPAM appliance can be a high-end TW750, mid-range TW450 or a software appliance based on VM running on-prem or in the Cloud.

  • TCPWave is the single source for both hardware and software.
  • Simplified "rack and stack" installation and turn-up of IPAM/DNS/DHCP services.
  • Intel® Xeon® Silver multi-core and multi-threading enables simultaneous processing within appliance.
  • Green technology saves power during idle states.
  • Advanced "Lights Out" management allows administrators to quickly interact with appliance and diagnose any potential hardware issues.
  • Hardware built and sourced in country by Dell to minimize shipping delays and issues involving customs.
  • Hardware repair and replacement by dedicated Dell technicians minimizes downtime.
