Dramatically strengthening SD-WAN / cyber security functions- Upgrading the firmware of switch / router products-

Allied Telesis Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, President Akiyoshi Oshima) has upgraded the firmware “AlliedWare Plus (AW +)” for switch router products and released the new firmware “AW + Ver.5.5.0-0.1”. The download service from our website started on April 24th. In addition, the new products “VRF-Lite full license” and “AMF-SE Curity mini license” will start shipping from April 27th.

This version upgrade supports the enhancement of the SD-WAN function and the support of the AMF-SE Curity mini function that realizes the construction of network security in cooperation with an external security device. In addition, we have added support for strengthening the integrated management function of switches.

<Main functions expanded with firmware “AW + Ver. 5.5.0-0.1”>

Enhanced SD-WAN function, more flexible use of Internet breakout function

  • We have enhanced the Internet breakout function that automatically sorts forwarding destinations according to the applications that were previously supported, and also supports sorting Office 365 traffic under a proxy server environment. Not only can the proxy server prevent session over, but it can also be used in combination with PBR to reduce line traffic on the center side.
  • <Target models> AT-AR4050S, AT-AR3050S, AT-AR2050V, AT-AR2010V

Serverless cyber security solution can be introduced

  • “AMF-SECurity mini” that can use the functions of the AMF-SECurity (AMF-SEC) solution that realizes the construction of network security in cooperation with an external security device without a server * 1 is supported by the router product “AT-AR4050S” Did. Until now, AMF-SEC required a separate server, but with this release, AMF-SEC can be introduced without a server, making it easier to enhance security.
  • <Target model> AT-AR4050S

Addition of products that support integrated management functions and enhancement of other switch functions

    • The new switch product “CentreCOM x550 series” is compatible with Vista manager mini, which makes it possible to visualize the network configuration of wired / wireless LAN and simplify integrated management of the network.
      In addition, we have released the expansion license “VRF-Lite Full License” to support the expansion of the number of VRF-Lite instances in “SwitchBlade x908 GEN2” and “CentreCOM x950 series”.

    ・ VRF (Virtual Routing and Forwarding)

    • It is a function that allows you to have multiple routing tables (routing instances) on one router or switch. Each of these routing instances is called a VRF instance. Since each VRF instance is independent, you can use duplicate IP addresses between VRF instances even on the same device. You can also run the routing protocol independently for each VRF instance. With these features, one device can behave like multiple devices. VRF is a protocol intended for use on MPLS networks, but VRF-Lite is designed to be independent of MPLS networks and has a simpler implementation.
