Juniper Networks has announced new hardware for its SRX5800 Services Gateway that will deliver performance necessary to secure traffic on high-speed networks. These new improvements will increase available Internet Mix (IMIX) firewall throughput up to 2 Terabits per second (2 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.
“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, Vice-President & Security Chief Technology Officer, Juniper Development and Innovation, Juniper Networks.
The new hardware for the SRX5800 Services Gateway includes third-generation input/output cards (IOC3), an enhanced midplane chassis and third-generation system control boards (SCB3). These enhancements will provide customers a highly scalable and reliable system that delivers the speed, infrastructure and applications to protect users from current and future threats without sacrificing performance of high-speed service provider and enterprise networks.
The combination of IOC3 cards, SCB3 boards, an enhanced midplane chassis, and application of Express Path software allows the SRX5800 Services Gateway to deliver a leading-edge security platform capable of surpassing 2 Tbps throughput.
Each IOC3 line card supports two packet forwarding engines (PFE), a high-density configuration of 2x100GbE and 4x10GbE high-speed interfaces. Additionally, it delivers 240Gbps bandwidth and 2X bandwidth increase over the prior hardware card… See more
