Juniper filters faster
Juniper Networks has announced the availability of a new processor for its routers that enhances security, traffic monitoring and service creation.
The Internet Processor II runs on Juniper's M20, M40 and M160 routers for service providers. It lets service providers scale their networks and services regardless of circuit speed or density, Juniper says.
When used with Juniper's JUNOS 4.0 software, the Internet Processor II performs packet filtering at speeds up to 10G bit/sec (OC-192c), Juniper says. JUNOS 4.0 also enables the ASIC to perform traffic sampling and logging, for trending and capacity planning; counting, for traffic analysis; and load balancing, for optimising bandwidth.
Software-based routers filter 200,000 packet-per- sec, while the Juniper Internet Processor II filters 20 million packet-per-sec on an OC-192c link, Juniper claims.
Juniper's M160 ships with the Internet Processor II. Existing customers with M20 and M40 routers can upgrade for $US15,000 and $25,000 respectively.
