VIPRION 4800 Chassis

Provides unsurpassed consolidation of ADC services with up to 48 vCMP instances. Add up to eight B4450 blades to achieve maximum throughout, L7 RPS, SSL performance, and compression with no disruption. Designed completely in-house, the 4800 delivers an exceptional customer experience, maximum performance and scalability, and carrier-grade reliability. It's also the most power-efficient chassis, with 80 PLUS Gold Certified power supplies for lower cooling and energy requirements.

VIPRION 4480 Chassis

The NEBS-certified 4480 was designed with carrier-grade reliability in mind. With support for industry-first 40GbE and 100Gbe (QSFP28) ports, multi-tenant virtualization support, and the ability to add up to four B4450 blades to its chassis, application delivery network and security scales as business demands grow.

VIPRION 4450 Blade

The purpose-built, NEBS-compliant VIPRION 4450 blade delivers two 100GbE ports and six 40GbE ports, vastly increasing efficiency, throughput, and performance. It’s the first ADC to provide 100GbE ports in the QSFP28 form factor, delivering the smallest footprint and lowest power consumption of any 100GbE form factor. A VIPRION 4800 chassis fully loaded with VIPRION 4450 blades supports more than 1 Billion concurrent connections and over 1Tbps of DDoS protection. In the VIPRION 4480 or 4800 chassis, the 4450 delivers significant improvements for SSL and elliptical curve cryptography (ECC) performance, enhancing perfect forward secrecy (PFS). Advanced FPGAs, memory, and hardware search on the VIPRION 4450 handles and efficiently addresses software-defined networking (SDN) needs, delivering CPU offloading, optimization, and adaptability.

Compatible with the VIPRION 4800 and VIPRION 4480 chassis


VIPRION 2400 Chassis

A true pay-as-you-grow model, the 2400 chassis with four B2250 blades offers on-demand L7, SSL, and compression performance without operational disruption. For agility and improved efficiency, it provides the highest-density, multi-tenant virtualization solution that can dynamically scale virtual ADC instances as business requirements change. The 2400 uses 80 PLUS Gold Certified power supplies to save on cooling and energy costs.

VIPRION 2200 Chassis

The 2200 is an appliance-size (2U) ADC chassis that provides pay-as-you-grow performance on demand. With support of up to two 2250 blades, this chassis provides efficient application services consolidation and dynamic resource scaling with no operational disruption.    

VIPRION 2250 Blade

The purpose-built VIPRION 2250 blade delivers four 40GbE ports and supports 48M concurrent connections with 80Gbps of L4 throughput. In the VIPRION 2400 or 2200 chassis, the 2250 blade delivers significant SSL performance, advanced FPGAs, CPUs, and memory that handles and efficiently addresses enterprise data center, private cloud, and software-defined networking (SDN) needs. The 2250 blade incorporates enterprise-class, solid-state drive (SSD) storage for improved disk i/o performance and reliability. For Layer-4 centric workloads like CGNAT and traffic management, users can select an optimized performance profile that approximately doubles the throughput to 155Gbps.
