Packeteer Rolls Out 1 Gbps Network Appliance, New WAN Software

Packeteer has released two products designed to control and accelerate WAN applications, and help WAN infrastructures become adaptive to changing business priorities by performing QoS functions, as well as monitor VoIP performance, and track and isolate suspicious activity.

The 10000 Series appliance for managing WAN application traffic delivers full-duplex 1 Gbps throughput and can be deployed to provide the application visibility, control and acceleration capabilities required for WAN Quality of Service (QoS). It can monitor VoIP performance, monitor MPLS service levels on a per flow basis, and track and isolate suspicious activity.

The 10000 Series scales to 1 Gbps while maintaining full Layer 7 intelligence with rate shaping, centralized management and full reporting. According to company officials, it can forward traffic at gigabit rates, concurrently manage QoS for thousands of classes of traffic, collect over one hundred performance metrics for each class, and compress traffic to hundreds of sites.

The series is designed for enterprise and education customers supporting bandwidth-intensive applications, as well as ISPs that need to manage traffic to meet SLA requirements for their customers.

It is available immediately. Pricing starts at $36,000.
