What We Provide
With the increasing adoption of virtualisation, software-defined networks (a.k.a SD-WAN) and cloud-native applications in today’s business environment, the role of the firewall has evolved from a gateway-based, security-only device to a set of distributed solutions that make sure the WAN network is available any time for any type of endpoint. Regardless of the WAN endpoint placed within headquarters, a remote office, a network in the IaaS cloud, or a mobile endpoint, our Managed Firewall is expected to enable impeccable WAN performance.
Altinet’s Managed NG Firewall includes data deduplication, and traffic compression. With built-in WAN compression, the NG Firewall significantly improves site-to-site WAN network throughput and accelerates the delivery of business applications – at no extra charge.
Failover and Link Balancing
Altinet’s Next-Gen Managed Firewall provides a wide range of built-in uplink options such as leased lines, broadband (DHCP, DSL/cable, PPPoA, PPPoE, PPTP), and 3G/4G/UMTS, Up to 24 uplinks can be combined in load sharing or failover mode, eliminating the need to purchase additional devices for link balancing.
Dynamic Bandwidth Detection and Performance-based Transport Selection
In order to achieve the highest possible quality of service, the Managed NG Firewall model pro-actively measure the available VPN bandwidths and – automatically – select the best uplink for a VPN connection based on bandwidth, latency, or combined quality metrics.
Especially for VoIP traffic it is highly sensitive to packet loss. The Altinet Managed NG Firewall mirrors VoIP/ Video packets and sends these across multiple uplinks simultaneously. At the destination, the packets are then again combined to provide best voice and video quality.
On-Demand Dynamic Mesh VPN
Altinet NG Firewall deployments in a centrally managed WAN network create VPN tunnels and dynamically based on remote peer and application. The typical use case for this technology is on-demand VPN tunnels between two branch offices for a VoIP telephone call, thereby improving call quality.
For hybrid networks hosted in public cloud infrastructures like Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, or Google Cloud Platform, this technology can easily be used to enable on-the-fly and direct access to cloud applications from remote offices that otherwise do not need a permanent connection to the cloud.
