Allot Introduces Virtual Edition of Service Gateway

By Paula Bernier October 13, 2015

Allot Communications Ltd. has unveiled the Allot Service Gateway-Virtual Edition and a portfolio of pre-integrated services. The company is also promoting the fact that a new Tolly Performance Report verifies that a single instance of the Allot Security virtual network function used to inspect traffic at wire speed and do URL filtering can provide performance at nearly 200Gbps.

The Allot Service Gateway-Virtual Edition provides anomaly detection, offers application awareness, can help with big data collection and mediation, offers control plane integration and network integration, and supports multi-tenancy. This virtualized solution is based on the company’s gateway, which was introduced eight years ago.

"The Allot Service Gateway is all about best-of-breed service agility and efficiency from day one, providing service providers effective monetization opportunities," says Allot Communications CTO Jay Klein. "Adapting the proven and popular capabilities of Allot's Service Gateway in a new framework with pre-integrated virtualized services prearranged as a VNF, allows service providers to enjoy a smooth deployment, free their networks of physical hardware constraints and quickly achieve the cost and efficiency benefits promised by NFV."

In other recent news from the company, Allot in July joined the HP OpenNFV Partner Program, to which it is providing its virtual Traffic Detection Function and security services.

"Allot's virtualized solutions enable service providers and enterprises to enjoy high performance and scalability while minimizing capital and service costs,” Klein said at the time. “Operators are excited to be able to roll out new security services with reduced time to market at lower operational and capital expenditures, providing a great opportunity to monetize their data."

Speaking of security, Allot Communications in February of this year announced plans to buy security company Optenet for $5.5 million. Optenet sells sells security-as-a-service solutions to large enterprise and service providers. Allot Communications, meanwhile, is probably best known as a provider of deep packet inspection solutions.
