Nortel Networks Alteon Switched Firewall Director 5008 (ASFS) – with its unique switch-accelerated architecture – offers unmatched flexibility by offering a broad range of security options at different price points, tailored to the requirements of large enterprise customers and service providers.
The Alteon Switched Firewall products augment the strength of the Alteon solution by providing additional configuration options for high-performance security.
The Alteon Switched Firewall is a multi-component solution, managed as a single system.
It is a tight integration of two key components – an Alteon Switched Firewall Accelerator, plus up to six Alteon Switched Firewall Directors.
Using Check Point’s Secure XL technology and Nortel Networks Open Security Architecture, the firewall accelerator and firewall directors communicate to setup and teardown firewall sessions in real-time.
