Juniper Networks, the leader in network innovation has announced new hardware for the SRX5800 Services Gateway that will provide exceptional performance necessary to secure traffic on high-speed networks. The new hardware will include 3rd gen input/output cards, an enhanced midplane chassis and 3rd gen system control boards.
The new enhancements will offer users a highly scalable and reliable system that provides speed, infrastructure and applications; protect users from existing and forthcoming threats without losing performance of high-speed service provider and enterprise networks. The new product enhancements will be available during the first half of 2015.
Further, the enhancements will raise available Internet Mix (IMIX) firewall throughput up to 2 Terabits per second(Tbps), to empower service providers and large enterprises to minimize the potential for security bottlenecks as they manage increased and unpredictable demands for bandwidth placed on their networks, the press release states.
Unparalleled Performance Advancements:
- The amalgamation of IOC3 cards, SCB3 boards, an enriched midplane chassis, and application of Express Path software lets the Gateway deliver a top edge security platform capable of surpassing 2 Tbps throughput.
- Each IOC3 line card supports 2packet forwarding engines (PFE), a high-density configuration of 2x100GbE and 4x10GbE high-speed interfaces.
- It delivers 240Gbps bandwidth and 2X bandwidth increase over the prior hardware card.
- While the IOC3 cards will be available in enriched SRX chassis, they may also be deployed in the present SRX chassis and in mixed configurations, with existing IOC2 cards and service processing cards.
“As the threat landscape continues to evolve and a variety of devices increasingly flood the network, companies are forced to not only meet network performance demands but also ensure they have efficient, fast and scalable protection in place. With Juniper’s latest performance advancements, the company is elevating industry standards and empowering businesses to accelerate time to enforcement with the fastest available throughput on the market today, ” said Christofer Hoff, VP and security chief technology officer, Juniper Development and Innovation, Juniper Networks.
