XGS Series Next-Gen Firewall Appliances
Enterprise Edge: 2U Models
Distributed and growing enterprises in need of maximum throughput for even the most complex network get the ultimate in protection, performance, and business continuity with these next-gen firewalls. The new Xstream Flow Processors provide dedicated hardware acceleration to easily handle full-on protection for today’s encrypted, cloud-hosted applications and traffic. These models strike the perfect balance between port density and modularity, with a range of high-speed, built-in ports, plus additional high-density Flexi port modules available to extend connectivity even further.
All models are powered by a high-speed CPU plus a dedicated Xstream Flow Processor for hardware acceleration.
Performance Test Methodology
|General||Maximum throughput measured under ideal test conditions using industry standard Keysight-Ixia BreakingPoint test tools. Actual performance may vary depending on network conditions and activated services.|
|Firewall||Measured using HTTP traffic and 512 KB response size|
|Firewall IMIX||UDP throughput based on a combination of 66 byte, 570 byte and 1518 byte packet sizes|
|IPS||Measured with IPS with HTTP traffic using default IPS ruleset and 512 KB object size.|
|IPsec VPN||HTTP throughput using multiple tunnels and 512 KB HTTP response size|
|TLS inspection||Performance measured with IPS with HTTPS sessions and different cipher suites.|
|Threat Protection||Measured with Firewall, IPS, Application Control, and malware prevention enabled using HTTP 200 KB response size|
Connectivity, Power, and Control
- Dual processor architecture with dedicated co-processor for hardware acceleration
- Built to power all key threat protection features such as TLS inspection, sandboxing and AI-driven threat analysis
- Excellent price to performance ratio
- A range of standard 1 GE copper plus 8 to 12 SFP+ 10GE Fiber interfaces on-board
- Optional standard and high-density Flexi Port modules available to extend and adapt connectivity
- Maximum port density of 48 (XGS 5500) or 68 (XGS 6500) using optional modules
- Redundancy features on all models ensure business continuity
Flexi Port Modules
For all XGS 2U models
Our 2U models come with two standard Flexi Port expansion bays plus one or two bays for high-density modules to flexibly add to the diverse range of built-in interfaces on every box. Changes in your environment, your workforce, or your edge infrastructure may require additional fiber ports or a change in your connectivity. With Flexi Port modules, you have a cost-effective way to adapt your appliance, rather than having to purchase new hardware mid-term.
A list of compatible third-party transceivers can be found in our knowledge base article.
All of our 2U appliances come equipped with hot-swappable components to ensure maximum uptime:
- Dual SSDs
- Dual Power supplies
All 2U rackmount appliances are supplied with rackmount sliding rails.
