Stampede Technologies, a provider of WAN optimisation and acceleration offerings for satellite and terrestrial-based networks, has launched new FX Series 1000 Remote Office Appliance.
According to Stampede, the FX Series 1000 adds remote branch office appliance capabilities to the FX Series 2000 and 4000 product line for two-sided WAN optimisation and acceleration. It can be installed at remote offices which have 3 to 15Mbps of bandwidth connectivity to headquarters, NOCs or head-end facilities with FX Series 2000 or 4000 appliances deployed. The FX Series 2000 and FX 4000 appliances support 70Mbps-155Mbps throughput.
The company claims that the new appliance enables ISPs and Teleport operators with the same set of head-end appliance features for bi-directional acceleration of all HTTP traffic. The company’s Acceleration On-Demand enables bi-directional acceleration functionality without the need to install software on end-user devices.
The FX Series 1000 comes with a dual core Intel processor and 2GB memory, and is available in three models supporting 3, 5 or 15Mbps remote office capacity. It saves upto 90% or more bandwidth, when coupled with an FX Series head-end appliance. Its WAN optimisation and acceleration features allow satellite network providers and ISPs to recapture expensive bandwidth, the company said.
Gordon Dorworth, CEO of Stampede Technologies, said: “Adding a remote appliance to our stable of products was a logical next step for us. Our customers have been asking for a product like this for some time. We are responding to customer requirements, and getting great feedback from those who have already deployed it.”
