Radware’s Alteon® 10000 Earns INTERNET TELEPHONY® Magazine’s Fourteenth Annual Product of the Year Award

Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) named Radware’s Alteon® 10000 application delivery controller (ADC) platform a recipient of the 2011 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award.

“Today’s Internet service providers and wire-line carriers are facing profound shifts in their business models due to dynamic growth in data traffic and new levels of connections and users concurrency requirements, that are driving network infrastructure transformations,” said Nir Ilani, Product Marketing Director, Application Delivery, Radware. “The Alteon 10000, targeted at high-end next-generation data centers, fully ensures the high-availability and fast performance of carrier’s high-touch network infrastructure services -- such as Diameter, SIP, DNS and more -- as well as various value added services, optimization proxies, video streaming and other over-the-top premium services that generate revenues and yield higher ARPU for the providers.”

Alteon 10000 

Radware’s Alteon 10000 is a high-end, carrier-grade ADC built on a modular, Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) chassis, designed to meet the most demanding requirements and regulations specific to the carrier sector.  Powered by a state-of-the-art, custom-designed hardware platform, the Alteon 10000 ensures enhanced user experience and fast response time for Internet services, value added services, and carriers’ core IT applications, resulting in effective, continuous business operation.

The Alteon 10000 delivers on-demand, extendable throughput of up to 80 Gbps of application delivery capacity with the ability to run up to 480 fully-isolated and virtual ADCs (vADC) instances, making it the industry-leading ADC in terms of scaling to support the highest number of services, applications or customers from a single, consolidated ADC platform. It is the most future-proof solution, able to support new services and traffic without the need for more hardware ADC units, reducing capital and operational expenses.

The Alteon 10000 provides superior performance in any layer 4 through 7 metric coupled with advanced application acceleration capabilities to support high service level agreements.  It further enables fast response time for the best customer satisfaction and maximum productivity.

Additionally, Radware’s Alteon 10000 is a key technology enabler for Radware’s Virtual Application Delivery Infrastructure (VADI™) strategy that transforms computing resources, ADC services and virtualization services into an integrated, agile and scalable on-demand application delivery infrastructure.  Radware’s VADI allows cloud providers and high-end enterprises to undergo large-scale consolidation by supporting multiple virtual ADC instances running in parallel on the same hardware switch with complete isolation between the instances. As a result, it ensures application delivery resilience and performance predictability, improves data center business agility and IT efficiency, and dramatically reduces the cost of application delivery deployments.

“INTERNET TELEPHONY is pleased to present the 2011 Product of the Year Award to Radware and its Alteon 10000 Application Switch,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Radware continues to prove its commitment to quality and excellence in the development of IP communications technology, as they continue to support service providers in their efforts to deliver services, applications and content to their customers. We congratulate Radware for this achievement, and look forward to see what innovative solutions Radware delivers in 2012.”

2011 Product of the Year winners are published in the January/February 2012 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine, (www.itmag.com). Radware’s Alteon 10000 received additional recognitions from TMC in 2011, having received a NGN Magazine Leadership Award, and a 2011 TMC Labs Innovation Award.
