FortiGate 5000 Series – Setting the Standard for High Performance Security via NP6 ASICs
The new FortiGate 5000 Series is
The new 5000 Series comprises a new chassis – the FortiGate 5144C, new controller networking blades (5903C/5913C) and new security blades (5001D) that utilize the latest NP6 network processor to deliver 40 Gbps firewall throughput per ASIC. Unlike common, off-the-shelf processors used by other vendors, the NP6 ASIC is a revolutionary, low-power design that produces unparalleled firewall throughput (40Gbps) as well as 2-3microsecond latency. Coupled with native IPv4 and IPv6 traffic processing, the NP6 is ideally suited for next-generation networks. By running fourteen 5001D security blades concurrently, today's 5000 Series delivers more than 1 Tbps firewall throughput.
The new 5000 Series leverages the same high-performance hardware architecture, NP6 ASICs and FortiOS that power the award-winning enterprise FortiGate 1000 and 3000 security appliances that protect data centers and enterprise users. This provides unparalleled deployment flexibility, security functionality and policy enforcement.
"The industry is facing a massive change as businesses and consumers demand applications and services to be delivered instantly. Just as important is the fact that security must play an active role in this new paradigm of delivering X as a service," said
FortiGate 5001D Blades – State of the Art Security in a Blade Design
The new 5001D security blades provide the core security capabilities to the new 5000 Series. These represent the 5 th generation process boards that can process 100 Gbps throughput. Each 5001D blade embeds two FortiASIC NP6 processors. This provides full next-generation firewall capabilities, including: deep packet inspection, IPS, application control, web content filtering and more. In addition, because of
"Operating one of the largest end-to-end communications network in
