MAHWAH, N.J. -- Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), the leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced the expansion of its Alteon® Application Switch product line with two new OnDemand switches®, the Alteon 4408 and Alteon 4416. The Alteon 4-series is available less than one-year after Radware acquired Nortel’s layer 4-7 application switching business, and rounds-out the product suite together with the recently introduced Alteon 5412, which now offers complete application delivery throughput coverage up to 20 Gbps.

According to market analysis from IDC[1], a leading provider of global IT research and advice, Layer 4–7 switches that can provide good visibility into application use on the network and enable a ‘pay-as-you-grow’ IT philosophy will be integral in creating the next-generation datacenter. This is fueled by a need to evolve datacenter network architecture that can fluidly adapt to real-time business demands; allowing organizations to fully leverage the benefits of hosted datacenters, cloud services, and a global workforce.

With a focus on business-IT alignment in the datacenter, Radware’s Alteon 4-series provides the required application insight to efficiently scale both service and throughput levels based on business demand. The Alteon 4-series, built on Radware’s on demand infrastructure approach, enables Alteon customers to start with a certain bandwidth and application services to meet current operational needs, and then increase capacity and capabilities on a ‘pay-as-you-grow’ model – without replacing or rebooting supporting hardware – whilst maintaining high performance levels in layers 4-7. Leveraging simple, easy-to-deploy software license upgrades, coupled with Radware’s five-year platform longevity guarantee, Alteon customers gain a ‘future-proofed’ datacenter solution that successfully meets application needs across Layers 4-7, ensures transaction completion with maximum performance, and minimizes capacity planning risks.

“The network is on a course to deliver a broad base of services to the datacenter and application networking is at the heart of driving the datacenter to be more responsive, in real-time, to business needs,” said Lucinda Borovick, Research Vice President for IDC’s Datacenter Networks service. “Radware’s expanded Alteon suite will be a strategic resource for Alteon customers’ datacenters, as these products enable the network to provide business value to the organization by standing between mission-critical applications and the global network of end-users.”
