The network appliance ships with two antennas (WiFi and 4G LTE), a power adapter, and a VESA mount. It appears the system does not come pre-loaded with any operating system, but the company provides a LAN driver for Linux, peripheral drivers for Windows XP to 10, and an AMI BIOS on the product page. You’ll also find a user manual with details about hardware, BIOS options, driver installation, and watchdog configuration among other things.
