Toshiba Releases Wireless Mobility Server

Toshiba’s Computer Systems Group (CSG) today announced the Magnia(R) SG20
wireless mobility server.

The Magnia SG20 is a portable wireless server that can be used in various
environments including small and medium-sized offices, mobile consultants,
remote offices in large organizations, home offices, and other businesses
looking for mobile networking capability.

About the size of a Toshiba notebook, the Magnia SG20 can fit into an
ordinary computer case. The unit is designed to interface with wireless-enabled
notebooks and PDAs. The Magnia SG20 connects these mobile tools to one another
for added office efficiency and automation.

The Magnia SG20 is described by Toshiba as a fully integrated wireless
“network in a box,” enabling users to securely access and share files, printers,
and an Internet account. By adding a wireless PC card, the Magnia SG20 connects
wireless-enabled devices using Wi-Fi(TM) technology (802.11b) without the need
for an external access point.

The Magnia SG20 offers other optimized server features such as Web caching,
content filtering, backup, e-mail services, remote administration and a Linux
operating system.

The Magnia SG20 includes functions to protect valuable data from unwanted
access, with configurable firewall protection that guards information from
intrusion over the Internet. The Magnia SG20 also has a virtual private network
(VPN) feature for allowing secure access to authorized users when connecting
from offsite locations.

single or dual hard disk drive configurations, currently providing up to 60GB of
maximum storage capacity. Starting at $1,440, the Magnia SG20 is available
