Fortinet accelerated interface modules increase the flexibility of FortiGate® and FortiCarrier™ platforms with 10-Gigabit Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interface Options. They also provide additional security performance for the platforms, adding wire-speed firewall and near wire-speed IPSec VPN security for traffic traversing the module's ports.
Fortinet accelerated interface modules include embedded FortiASIC™ processors to accelerate the performance of your FortiGate system. By performing firewall and IPSec VPN security functions at the interface level, modules offload processing overhead from the host system, freeing system resources for other functions. They are available in both single-width and double-width Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) standards, as well as the Fortinet Mezzanine Card (FMC) form factor for FortiGate-3950 series appliances, and the Rear Transition Module (RTM) form factor for FortiGate-5000 series chassis.
- Incremental firewall and IPSec VPN performance beyond the base system capacity, delivering additional scalability to meet increased traffic demands
- Increased port density allows greater flexibility in accommodating changes in the network design
