Adtran Netvanta 3450 Router Modular Access
Modular Access Router Supporting Metro Ethernet and up to Four T1s of Bandwidth
The NetVanta® 3450 is an ideal solution for multi-T1 and Metro Ethernet deployments.
This modular access router uses RapidRoute technology to deliver the high-packet throughput required for IP telephony, corporate connectivity, and Internet access. Supporting up to 4 T1s worth of bandwidth and 40 Mbps for Metro Ethernet throughput, this performance-enhanced platform delivers wire-speed throughput, even with advanced services enabled like Quality of Service (QoS), NAT, firewall, and VPN.
The NetVanta 3450 is a modular, 1U-high, rackmountable metal chassis that offers two 10/100Base-T Ethernet interfaces for WAN access LAN segmentation, DMZ, or even broadband backup. The dual-slot chassis houses any of the NetVanta Series Network Interface Modules (NIMs) and Dial Backup Interface Modules (DIMs). For dial backup, an analog modem DIM or an ISDN BRI DIM is available, preventing downtime by dialing around a failed circuit to any PPP-compliant device.
Complementing the versatile hardware, the AOS allows for the support of standards-based switching, Virtual LAN (VLAN) tagging, static and default routes, and demand routing. This enables fast, accurate network convergence using routing protocols such as BGP, OSPF, and RIP. In addition, the AOS terminates Ethernet, MPLS, Frame Relay, Multilink Frame Relay, PPP, Multilink PPP, and HDLC Wide Area Network (WAN) protocols. Multihoming is also available to provide redundant or backup WAN links to multiple ISPs, guaranteeing a widearea connection.
QoS is also supported for delay-sensitive traffic like VoIP or video. To prioritize mission-critical traffic and control network congestion, the NetVanta 3450 uses Low Latency Queuing, Weighted Fair Queuing (WFQ), Class-based WFQ, and DiffServ marking to establish the priority of IP packets routed over the WAN.
In combination with the QoS features, a specialized SIP ALG allows SIP traffic to traverse NAT-enabled firewalls. For enterprise networks, this interoperability allows IP PBXs, phones, and other SIP-based devices to set up, tear down, and pass voice and call control messages seamlessly through the integral NAT-enabled firewall.
The NetVanta 3450 also features VQM to capture MOS, jitter, delay, and packet loss statistics necessary to troubleshoot VoIP calls over the WAN. This powerful, yet graphically intuitive, diagnostic tool allows for quick isolation of network issues to ensure superior call quality.
The AOS provides a powerful, high performance stateful inspection firewall that can identify and protect against common Denial of Service (DoS) attacks like TCP syn flooding, IP spoofing, ICMP redirect, ping of death, and IP reassembly problems.
In addition, the AOS is capable of providing an inherent URL-filtering package without the use of an external server. URL-filtering is another level of security that allows system administrators to restrict Internet access by permitting or denying specific URLs. This URL filtering feature also includes the ability to produce top website reports of the most frequently requested websites, allowing system administrators to modify the URL filter lists.
The NetVanta 3450 also supports up to 500 simultaneous IPSec VPN tunnels and encryption algorithms like DES, 3DES, and AES. By supporting IPSec, the NetVanta 3450 is fully compatible with other IPSec VPNequipped NetVanta products.
The AOS offers both a GUI and a CLI for configuration and management. The Webbased GUI provides ease of management including step-by-step configuration wizards. The CLI mimics the widely deployed industry de facto standard.
