Silver Peak claims Gigabit WAN acceleration first
Silver Peak Systems has launched the NX-9000 claiming it to be the first Gigabit WAN acceleration product.
The device supports up to 4Gbps of bi-directional LAN side traffic and 1Gbps of bi-directional WAN side traffic, with 8Tb of local data store available for WAN deduplication.
Other NX-9000 features include:
- Two 10Gbps interfaces and four 1Gbps interfaces with EtherChannel bonding for physical connectivity between Silver Peak appliances and network elements, which is required for deployment in data centres.
- Supports for over 256,000 simultaneous TCP flows.
- Encryption performed in hardware at wirespeed.
- Optimisation of all enterprise applications, including TCP traffic (file, email), real-time UDP traffic (VoIP, video), latency-sensitive traffic (Citrix, data replication) and applications with dynamic data formats (AutoCAD, MS Excel).
̶0;It is becoming increasingly common for enterprises to deploy Gigabit WAN connections using MPLS, IP VPNs and similar ̵6;shared̵7; technologies,̶1; Silver Peak director Jeff Aaron says.
