Ipanema Technologies, a provider of application traffic management systems for wide area networks, has launched a new generation of integrated WAN optimization devices.
Ipanema’s Autonomic Networking System is supported by hardware devices, ip/engines that perform a complete range of application traffic management functions including visibility, optimization and acceleration. The ip/engines are designed to be placed in data centers and branch office locations.
According to the company, the ip/e 5ax offers better performance in its price class and form factor. This compact device handles WAN traffic of up to 8Mbps for both download and upload. The ip/e 5ax sports an 80Gb disk for improved caching capabilities. The device specification makes it ideal for branches fitted with modern ADSL2+ or SDSL links.
The company claims that the ip/e 1800ax is a carrier-grade device able to manage up to 1Gbps WAN traffic. It includes redundant power supply and three hot swap disks of 750Gb with RAID capabilities. The new range also includes the ip/e 120ax, ip/e 140ax and ip/e 1000ax models to cope with the variety of WAN access bandwidths.
Ipanema has said that the new ip/engine line is available immediately. The ip/e 5ax price begins at E2,100, while the ip/e 1800ax price begins at E34,000.
Thierry Grenot, chief technology officer of Ipanema Technologies, said: The new auxiliary ports are a fundamental advance in WAN optimization architecture principles. Ipanema is now able to intelligently integrate external application-centric network devices in its autonomic architecture and make them benefit from its visibility, optimization and acceleration features.
