Free Appliance Deployment Webinar Explores Delivery Options
By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor
Three power players in application deployment have partnered to present a free TMC webinar, “How to Deliver and Deploy Security Gateway Applications,” Thursday, Nov. 4 at 2PM EDT.
Sponsored by NEI (News - Alert), Dell and GE Intelligent Platforms, this webinar describes appliance deployment solutions, how to increase application performance and how to shorten time to revenue. All three benefits are possible through the NEBS certified application ready platform.
The webinar will focus on specific application deployment topics, including performance requirements for Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), encryption/decryption and traffic management; the role of packet processors and their growing importance; how such a platform can make your application work more efficiently; and why it is an ideal deployment platform for session border controllers, WiMAX, and 4G wireless applications.
Experts from NEI, Dell (News - Alert) and GE Intelligent platforms all understand the increased demand for network security, multi-gigabit processing, and traffic management has created a strong need for solutions that incorporate intelligent packet processes to drive increases in efficiency and performance.
A number of technology companies have created disparate pieces that address specific elements of the solution, yet without integration these parts lack value. The questions that tend to arise are can the hardware be adapted to address increased power requirements; who can complete the testing; who will validate the solution; and who will secure NEBS certification.
You will find it much easier to focus efforts on creating next-generation security gateway applications. To do so, partner with someone who has already completed all of the necessary steps to shorten time-to-market and ease application deployment and service issues.
The solution that can deliver the necessary application deployment is based on NEI’s N-2710 2U carrier grade server based on the Dell PowerEdge R710 server. This piece of hardware offers high performance and power efficiency to provide improved performance-per-watt. GE provies the OCTEON-based PCIe IP packet processing capabilities to deliver secure, high-speed connectivity and complex security processing at wire speed performance.
