UK start-up Equiinet finally launched its Netpiilot device last week, targeted at small to medium businesses and branch offices, as first seen in PC Week on 5 May. The device is designed to be as easy to set up and use as a telephone PBX (public branch exchange), and Equiinet describes it as the first Internet branch exchange (IBX) product. The box, running the resilient freeware Linux operating system, sits between the ISDN line and the network hub, and configures itself once it is plugged in. It provides a mail server, ISDN router, Web server and firewall, with pre-configured internal and external email, security and management. The unit costs #1,995 and is available now.
