In large networks, multiple A10 Thunder™ and AX Series appliances, physical or virtual, are deployed to enable business-critical systems to reach their users. While full control of A10 Thunder and AX Series devices can be achieved effectively by direct CLI, GUI or aXAPI outof- the-box by default, the benefit of central and automated management increases as more appliances are added.
A10’s aGalaxy™ network management solution enables a network administrator to manage any A10 device from a single point. aGalaxy is a robust network monitoring and network management solution that offers an intuitive interface that can be utilized to perform and automate a variety of essential tasks. For example, aGalaxy allows effi cient centralized monitoring, upgrades, SSL certificate management, aFleX TCL script management, configuration, backups and restore.
A10 Thunder® CGN product line of Carrier Grade Networking gateways provide highperformance, highly transparent address and protocol translation enterprises and services for service providers to extend their IPv4 network connectivity, while simultaneously making the transition to IPv6. Thunder CGN is our premium CGN product line, delivering performance scalability up to 150 Gbps and with expanded system resources designed to support future feature needs.
Network Address Translation (NAT) is a technology that has been used for a long time and by now has a ubiquitous presence in firewalls and Internet gateways. Carrier Grade NAT (CGN), also known as Large Scale NAT (LSN) is now becoming the new standard. Initially, traditional NAT was used for translating the address ranges between two networks.
Unprecedented growth in mobile devices and subscribers in the recent years has caused service providers to make significant investments in infrastructure to support rapid data traffic growth and offer new services. This has contributed to the exhaustion of the IPv4 address space and the depletion of IPv4 addresses is a now a reality. On February 3, 2011, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) allocated the last five remaining "/8"s of IPv4 address space to the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). As of April 2014, ARINs (American Registry for Internet Numbers) countdown plan has moved to the final phase and ARIN may not be able to fulfill new IPv4 allocation requests. On the other hand, digital content and Internet traffic is growing exponentially and the emerging trend of the Internet of Things is causing the number of connected devices to cross 20 billion by the end of this decade, increasing the demand for even more IP addresses. In order to sustain the current business and prepare for long-term growth, migrating to IPv6 has become inevitable for service providers...
A10 Networks' Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS) platform was built from the ground up based on supercomputing principles with High-Speed Shared Memory to meet rapidly growing application networking demands. ACOS linearly scales performance in increasingly dense multicore CPU systems and consumes dramatically fewer resources to achieve a comparable capacity relative to traditional designs. As a result, customers get a much more efficient system that can provide dramatically more application and security performance, and scale with much greater value. What this really means to your business is better end user experience today and into the future; with superior ROI for your IT budget...
This white paper discusses the trends affecting Application Networking and how A10's ACOS with high speed shared memory architecture will benefit your network for years to come.
With the global exhaustion of free pools of IPv4 addresses and the continuing adoption of IPv6, service providers are facing new challenges in sustaining growth and business continuity. Many service providers will need to implement an address translation strategy that includes both a short-term plan to address the preservation of their existing IPv4 address allocation, and a long-term plan to seamlessly migrate to an IPv6 infrastructure.
This approach will require a solution that not only provides a robust set of carrier-grade network address translation (CGNAT) capabilities — and IPv6 migration options based on each service provider’s existing infrastructure — but one that also addresses the entire lifecycle of the transition from IPv4 to IPv6.
This white paper provides an overview of the various components that are required for a complete CGNAT and IPv6 migration solution, which encompass the entire lifecycle of the transition to IPv6
On February 3, 2011, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) allocated the last five remaining “/8”s of IPv4 address space to the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs); the local registries are running low on IPv4 addresses, rapidly.
The advent of new Internet-connected locations (from hotels to planes and more world-wide) and new Internet-connected devices (notable examples include smartphones, smart meters, gaming devices and other household appliances) has exacerbated the shortage. Each of these extra devices places greater pressure on the existing IPv4 infrastructure.
In this white paper you will learn about various techniques for IPv6 Migration, IPv4 Preservation and IPv4/IPv6 Translation such as Carrier Grade NAT (CGN/CGNAT), Dual-Stack Lite (DS-Lite), NAT64, DNS64, 6rd and SLB-PT.
