Features & Benefits:

Quality of Service (QoS)

  • IEEE 802.1p prioritization — delivers data to devices based on the priority and type of traffic
  • Class of Service (CoS) — sets the IEEE 802.1p priority tag based on IP address, IP Type of Service (ToS), Layer 3 protocol, TCP/UDP port number, source port, and DiffServ
  • Bandwidth shaping
    • Port-based rate limiting — provides per-port ingress-/egress-enforced increased bandwidth
    • Classifier-based rate limiting — uses an access control list (ACL) to enforce increased bandwidth for ingress traffic on each port
    • Reduced bandwidth — provides per-port, per-queue egress-based reduced bandwidth
  • Congestion avoidance — Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED)/Random Early Detection (RED)
  • Powerful QoS feature — supports the following congestion actions: strict priority (SP) queuing, weighted round robin (WRR), weighted fair queuing (WFQ), and WRED
  • Traffic policing — supports Committed Access Rate (CAR) and line rate

Intrusion detection/prevention system (IDS/IPS)

  • Deep packet inspection — module supports deep packet inspection and examines the packet payload as well as the frame and packet headers; packets are dropped if attacks or intrusions are detected using signature-based or protocol anomaly-based detection
  • Signature-based detection — detects attacks that have known attack patterns; IPS maintains a signature database that contains the pattern definitions for known attacks that can be automatically updated using a subscription service
  • Protocol anomaly-based detection — detects attacks that use anomalies in application protocol payloads
  • Severity-based action policies — involve action taken against attacks based on their severity; available actions are "allow," "block," and "terminate connection" to provide appropriate mitigation
  • Signature update service — provides regular updates to the signature database, helping to facilitate that the latest available signatures are installed

Firewall

  • Stateful firewall — enforces firewall policies to control traffic and filter access to network services; maintains session information for every connection passing through it, enabling the firewall to control packets based on existing sessions
  • Zone-based access policies — logically groups virtual LANs (VLANs) into zones that share common security policies; allows both unicast and multicast policy settings by zones instead of by individual VLANs
  • Application-level gateway (ALG) — deep packet inspection in the firewall discovers the IP address and service port information embedded in the application data; the firewall then dynamically opens appropriate connections for specific applications
  • NAT/PAT — choice of dynamic or static network address translation (NAT) preserves a network's IP address pool or conceals the private address of network resources, such as Web servers, which are made accessible to users of a guest or public wireless LAN

Virtual private network (VPN)

  • IPSec — provides secure tunneling over an untrusted network such as the Internet or a wireless network; offers data confidentiality, authenticity, and integrity between two network endpoints
  • Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) — can be used to transport Layer 2 connectivity over a Layer 3 path in a secured way; enables the segregation of traffic from site to site
