November 2, 2011 -- Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centres, announced that it has provided advanced application delivery control (ADC) software for use with the Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Router.
Radware worked with Juniper to create a scalable ADC software application, based on Radware’s Alteon ADC technology and using the Junos SDK to fully integrate the ADC with Juniper Networks Junos operating system. The ADC application is implemented on high-performance service cards for the MX Series, enabling Juniper customers to improve their service delivery capabilities while concurrently avoiding the cost and complexity of deploying and maintaining ADC-specific appliances. The ADC and MX Series also share the same configuration and management tools, and the ADC leverages Junos integration with Operational Support Systems (OSS), which further reduces customer costs and risk.
"Juniper sets the bar in high performance networking and we are proud to partner with a company that shares this common vision," said Yossi Vardi, vice president, Business Development, Radware. “The ADC application provides Juniper customers with service optimisation, resiliency, and scalability, enabling faster, more efficient service delivery and improved subscriber experiences.”
Juniper’s router-integrated ADC employs sophisticated load balancing algorithms that ensure optimal performance and service quality by intelligently distributing and directing traffic based on real time changes in server load and availability. The advanced solution complements the Juniper Networks MX Series comprehensive set of carrier-grade services, and addresses the resiliency and performance requirements of many types of services and applications, including DNS, WAP gateways, Content Delivery Networks (CDN), SIP-based VoIP, as well as many others.
The new ADC software is the latest addition to the Service Delivery Gateway (SDG), Juniper Networks’ comprehensive set of advanced applications that are easily added to MX 3D Series Universal Edge Routers. The SDG can enable router-integrated video and VoIP monitoring, Next Generation Network Addressing solutions like Carrier Grade NAT and DS-Lite, application and subscriber aware services, and now, with the ADC, application aware traffic load balancing.
"Our partnership with Radware allows us to offer mature, router integrated application delivery control solutions for our enterprise and service provider customers," said Robert Krohn, vice president and general manager of the Router Services Business Unit at Juniper Networks. "The ADC is an important part of our SDG portfolio, and Radware’s application delivery expertise accelerates the pace of service innovation and enables our customers to extract more value from their network investments and service delivery infrastructure.”
Available today, the ADC solution is offered on the Juniper Networks MX240, MX480 and MX960 routers. The optionally licensed ADC is Juniper validated, sold and supported, and is easily added to MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers through a simple software upgrade.
