MAHWAH, New Jersey, September 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Radware ® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced a leading global mobile telecommunications provider has purchased its Alteon ® 10000 application delivery controllers (ADC) to help the carrier meet the explosive growth it has seen from customers using smartphones and mobile services, while at the same time consolidating its ADC platforms. The agreement is valued at over $1 million.
The mobile operator - an existing Radware customer that maintains one of the world's largest mobile carrier groups - has seen huge demand for its mobile data and video services as a result of the skyrocketing use of online mobile services by subscribers, involving both smartphone to Internet and smartphone to smartphone traffic. To address this, the operator needed a solution that would help it not only deliver greater throughput and on-demand scalability to manage unpredictable spikes in data traffic, but also consolidate its ADC units to reduce its data center footprint and lower the cost of ownership.
It chose the Alteon 10000 because of the ADC's carrier-grade performance superiority that also supports ADC virtualization with the highest virtual ADC (vADC) density in the industry -- up to 256 vADCs on a single ADC platform. This allows the mobile carrier to extend its virtualization of ADCs across its data center and consolidate legacy ADC devices into fewer platforms - reducing both the required data center space, electricity and cooling costs, as well as simplifying the day-to-day operations for significant CAPEX and OPEX reduction.More importantly, it enabled the operator to adopt a virtualization program using a deployment model for creating a separate, isolated vADC for each application, enabling a virtual data center computing environment with flexible, independent and secured configurations that avoid over-provisioning. This allows the carrier to deploy new services faster than before and better align its ADC services that require frequent configuration changes. Consequently, the Alteon 10000's separated, tailored configurations further ensure security and service level agreements (SLA's) by design, resulting in greater cost reduction and simplified operations.
