1 Solution Profile Branch in a Box

2 Executive Overview Today s networks have evolved from mere data connectivity sources to business enablers supporting mission critical applications which form an integral part of business itself. As the need to share and consolidate information spans across Intranets to Extranets, the dependency on networking infrastructures increases multifold. Business continuance, low cost of ownership as well as ease of operations are becoming core elements of any business enabling infrastructure, with a growing need to look for solutions beyond the traditionally available infrastructure components. Allied Telesyn recognises this need and is working towards evolving concepts like Functional Consolidation as one of the alternate methodologies. This methodology revolves around building next generation networking infrastructure with elements which offer more functionality per equipment than traditional elements with the same level of performance as the traditional sources; yet exceeding the feature sets. Branch-in-a-Box infrastructure solution revolves around consolidating various traditional branch office networking elements like routing, switching, HTTP/SMTP proxies, firewalls, encr yptors, VPN concentrators, load balancers as well as VoIP KEY BENEFITS Single Device Converged Connectivity-DATA, VIDEO & VOICE Stateful Inspection Firewall HTTP/SMTP Proxy Services Load Balancing Services VPN Concentration Services with MS XP VPN Client Support Hardware DES, 3DES Encryptions Time, Date, Weekday, Weekend-based Network Dynamism Built-in Alerts Resource Pooling and Availability Triggers On-Demand Back-up to Ethernet WAN Media Web GUI-based Configuration, Management & Troubleshooting IPv6 Ready Page 1 Branch in a Box

3 gateways in a single device, streamlining operations, reducing cost of ownership and maintenance. Functional Consolidation is a reality today and a business enabler for tomorrow s mission critical networks. Application Overview Traditional Branch Office Connectivity Corporate WAN The Branch-in-a-Box solution profile is engineered using functional consolidation elements from Allied Telesyn s product family. Primary Link On Demand Backup Link Traditional Solutions Prevailing branch office solutions use distributed and independent elements to provide the function of routing, switching, firewalling, proxy and packet voice respectively. Optional VPN Concentrator eg AT-AR450S Router eg AT-AR410 Optional Proxy Server As more and more business applications like ERP, mailing solutions, CRS, data warehousing, content hosting and management etc. are becoming centralised, failure of any of these isolated components contributes to failure Layer 2/3 Switch eg AT-8624M of the business application itself. Further, as business expands across geographical locations, networks spread to have a wide area of coverage with multiple Voice Gateway eg AT-RG213 branch offices connected through various media to the central or corporate office. With each branch Client Client office having all the above listed elements, it becomes a challenge maintaining the infrastructure elements with perfect harmony to provide a highly availability Telephone Telephone environment for business applications. Branch in a Box Page 2

4 Fur ther, lack of local IT competence at each and every branch office adds to the challenge for the MIS team to keep pace with increasing infrastructure up-time requirements. Allied Telesyn Advantage Allied Telesyn s Branch-in-a-Box appliance streamlines the branch office infrastructure through functionally consolidating routing, switching, firewalling, encryption, load balancing, proxy and VoIP gateway elements into a single device. This approach eliminates probable failures of these components individually, while cutting down the total cost of ownership as well as maintenance of the branch office infrastructure. This would also cut down the man hours required to suppor t the installation as well as the cost of spare inventory and other investments in outsourced third-par ty services to ensure business continuance.

5 Value Propostion Apart from the standard advantages functional consolidation brings to the table, Allied Telesyn s Branch-in-a-Box equipment extend further value in terms of these additional features: Converged Services Branch-in-a-Box appliances are engineered with enough QoS and functionality to consolidate IP-based data, voice as well as video on to a single device while still treating each of these applications with the required sensitivity and intelligence so as to maintain end-to-end quality. Network Dynamism These appliances provide scripting functions which can be configured to enable network dynamism to reconfigure the appliance automatically based on Change of Date, Time, Weekday, Weekend or any event happening on the equipment. Functions like automatic failovers, application availability and priority during business hours, on-demand circuits, activity schedulers etc. harness this inherent capability of the appliances. Load Balancing With bare minimum incremental cost, these Branchin-a-Box appliances can be upgraded to provide WAN Load balancer, TCP Virtual Balancer, HTTP Virtual Balancer as well as SSL Load Balancer in software. VPN Services For connectivity over public networks, these appliances support IPSec, GRE or L2TP based site-to-site VPN services with DES or 3DES encryption levels in hardware. To support mobile or roaming users, the same appliances can support client-to-site VPNs with support for MS XP VPN client. ICSA-certified Stateful Inspection Firewall Allied Telesyn s state-of-the-art Stateful Inspection Firewall ships by default with most of the Branch-in-a-Box appliances, protecting networks by monitoring both packet content and session status. The firewall defends against a wide range of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks including Ping of Death, SYN/FIN flooding, Smurf attacks, port scans, fragment attacks, and IP Spoofing. The firewall also triggers alerts when such attacks are detected. These appliances create a comprehensive security audit trail of event triggers, firewall event-logging, and accounting information. Proxy Services With the Firewall Feature Set loaded on these devices, HTTP as well as SMTP proxy services can also be configured on the same appliance with basic URL filtering support to restrict web content according to organisational security policies. Branch in a Box Page 4

6 Alerts & Notification All Branch-in-a-Box appliances come with a built-in client that can generate custom alerts lest any abnormality arise on the network like change in interface status, CPU and memory utilization, WAN link utilization, module failures etc or any set threshold is reached. This feature requires no network management tools to be deployed. Backup to Ethernet as WAN Media With the Providers migration from traditional TDM based infrastructures to Metro Ethernet, more and more bandwidth provisioning will happen on Ethernet as the media in time to come. Traditionally, backup to Ethernet media as last mile bandwidth provisioning source is very challenging; however, as Allied Telesyn s Branch-in-a-Box appliance suppor ts resource pooling and availability, these devices can trigger any on-demand circuit of any media type once the defined resources are not available over the primary Ethernet media. About Allied Telesyn Allied Telesyn has been an innovator in the development and manufacturing of high-quality, low-cost networking solutions since The company s diverse portfolio of solutions, scales to optimize networks for any distance, speed, security or legacy integration. Allied Telesyn s core to edge technologies range from simple Ethernet adapters, media conver ters to robust multi layer Gigabit Ethernet switches; from network management, wireless and security solutions to Carrier Class solutions that deliver real time multimedia.
