By Jamie Epstein, TMCnet Web Editor
Radware (News - Alert), a provider of application delivery solutions for business networking, has just been awarded the 2011 NGN Leadership Award from Technology Marketing Corporation's (TMC (News - Alert)) NGN Magazine for the third year in a row, for its Alteon 1000. The Alteon 1000 boasts both high MTBF and is NEBS-3 compliant.
The NGN Leadership Awards were created to pay homage to the products, services and technologies that help to make the deployment of next-generation networks possible. Built from the ground up, Radware's Alteon 10000 application switch was created for carriers, Internet service providers and cloud providers. The Alteon 10000 is built upon an Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) compliant chassis which helps the product to meet rigorous requirements, while also offering the industry's highest layer 7 throughput (up to 80 Gbps) ever designed for application scalability, availability and performance.
According to a press release, the Alteon 10000 provides superior layer 4-7 performance, a complete suite of application delivery services, advanced application acceleration capabilities and on demand scalability through the ODS-4 platform. This new product boasts a large amount of port offerings-- 15 ports of 10GE and 8 ports of 1GE-- as well as multiple connectivity alternatives.
“Carriers, ISPs and cloud providers are all facing profound shifts in their business models as the explosive growth in Internet, video and mobile data traffic continues to drive network infrastructure transformations as well as fundamental changes in operating and revenue generation methods," said Nir Ilani, product marketing director, application delivery, Radware. "The Alteon 10000 is designed from the ground up to specifically meet these types of challenges, and receiving the 2011 NGN Leadership Award is symbolic of our efforts to deliver best-in-class, resilient carrier-grade application delivery solutions."
The Alteon 10000 enables Radware's Mobile Service Edge (MSE) and Virtual Application Delivery Infrastructure (VADI) strategies to work successfully. Radware's MSE strategy enables mobile operators to optimize 4G/long term evolution (LTE (News - Alert)) networks for fast performance and enhanced quality of experience (QoE), while concurrently supporting diverse content delivery, rapidly changing capacity requirements, and new value-added service (VAS) delivery, a release stated.
"Radware continues to be a leader in bringing next-generation IP Communications technologies to market, and we are pleased to recognize the Alteon 10000 application switch with a 2011 NGN Leadership Award," said Rich Tehrani (News - Alert), CEO, TMC. "It was a unanimous decision to honor Radware for its leadership in next-generation communications technologies, and we look forward to watching them continue to support service providers in their efforts to deliver services, applications and content to their customers."
