"As carriers experience unprecedented growth in areas like mobile data, video and other services, the Alteon 10000 platform can help them cost-effectively support more services and users, scale throughput, and reduce their data center footprint without any hardware replacements," said David Aviv, vice president, Advanced Services, Radware. "The Alteon solution allows this operator to deliver more with less hardware without compromising resiliency, agility and the simplicity that is required in the dynamic, ever-changing virtualized data center."More About the Alteon 10000 Radware's Alteon 10000 is a high-performance, Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture- (ATCA) compliant ADC that delivers on-demand, extendable throughput (up to 80 Gbps.) of application delivery capacity while allowing users to run the industry's highest amount of fully-isolated vADC instances on one consolidated platform. It delivers breakthrough performance in terms of all Layer 4 through Layer 7 performance metrics, including 11.2 million requests per second via UDP and 2 million connections per second via TCP, while supporting up to 44 million concurrent connections. As a result, the Alteon 10000 supports more traffic and more applications to ensure best quality of experience with fast response times. Also, with 15 ports of 10GE / GE (SFP+ pluggable optics) and additional 8 ports of 1GE (copper), the Alteon 10000 provides an extensive ports offering and a wide set of connectivity alternatives. The 6-slots chassis of the Alteon 10000 accommodates 4 payload blades, each providing 20 Gbps. of throughput, up to a total of on-demand, scalable 80 Gbps. All the chassis blades are hot swappable, allowing replacements without stopping the entire chassis. The Alteon 10000 also provides a wide set of application acceleration capabilities including SSL offloading, Web compression, caching, HTTP multiplexing and TCP optimization. These capabilities are designed to offload servers, address server performance issues, and enhance response times for the best quality of experience for users and to mitigate security risks. By offloading processor-intensive operations from servers, the Alteon 10000 frees the servers' CPUs to handle additional requests. This eliminates the need to buy additional hardware in order to support application processing requirements thus reducing capital and operational expenditures.
