NEBS Webinar Explores Delivery Options for Security Gateway Applications
By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor
Experts from NEI (News - Alert), Dell and GE Intelligent platforms have all come together to deliver a free event focused on NEI’s NEBS solution. As all of these key players understand that 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.
As a result, they have come together to develop the NEBS solution. To communicate its benefits to the organization, they are also sponsoring a free webinar, “How to Deliver and Deploy Security Gateway (News - Alert) Applications,” on Thursday, Nov. 4 at 2PM EDT.
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.
This 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.
Sponsored by NEI, Dell and GE Intelligent Platforms (News - Alert), this webinar describes NEBS 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.
It is much easier to focus efforts on creating next-generation security gateway applications, especially with NEBS integration. 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 NEBS solution that can deliver the necessary application deployment is based on NEI’s N-2710 2U carrier grade server based on the Dell (News - Alert) PowerEdge R710 server. This piece of hardware offers high performance and power efficiency to provide improved performance-per-watt.
GE provides the OCTEON-based PCIe IP packet processing capabilities to deliver secure, high-speed connectivity and complex security processing at wire speed performance.
