Fave raves Seven must-have products, in readers' own words.
Five network 'sleepers' Testers hadn't expected much from these products and technologies, but now find them quite promising.
How we tested Juniper's SRX 5800 We assessed the Juniper SRX 5800 in terms of performance, features and usability. Because the product is marketed as a security appliance, our tests focused on security performance. We did not look at router metrics, such as BGP performance, although the SRX-5800 does have the full multiprotocol and multilayer JunOS 9.3 routing engine inside. Our security performance tests included separate sets of measurements using stateful TCP and stateless UDP traffic. For both sets of tests, we offered test traffic to 16 10-gigabit Ethernet interfaces.
Manageability problems with Juniper's firewall Our woes with Netscreen Security Manager began when we tried to use it to manage the SRX 5800. With eight years of experience using NSM in Opus One’s labs, we were looking forward to the unification of JunOS and ScreenOS management. We started out needing to change IP addresses, a common enough task. For a ScreenOS system, this takes three clicks: two clicks to see a summary interfaces and IP addresses, and third to begin editing.
