BURLINGTON, Mass. -- Quarry Technologies, an innovative supplier of intelligent network-security systems, today announced that in performance testing, conducted by The Tolly Group, its iQ8000(TM) Service Edge Switch attained full Gigabit Ethernet line rate per flow, while running encrypted Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), stateful firewalls and fine-grained traffic policing simultaneously, on every interface of a fully-configured device. No other system on the market has ever demonstrated such high-performance or uncompromising network security capabilities. The Tolly Group, a leading independent networking industry test lab, ran the tests and reported the results. Engineers from Spirent Communications, a top supplier of performance analysis solutions, were on hand for the assessment, and assisted with the test equipment. A SmartBits 6000B system equipped with SmartFlow and new TeraVPN applications was used as the primary analysis tool. "Quarry Technologies' device performance was recorded up to full Gigabit Ethernet rate even while the high security IPsec standards of 3DES/SHA-1 were active." said Bahaa Moukadam, Spirent Communications, SmartBits Division, Vice President of Product Marketing. "Enabling additional services did not seem to have a negative impact on the system's throughput." System latency under load, tunnel setup rate, and service management capabilities were also tested, and revealed outstanding results.
