Flexibility for growth

Easily Change Interface Configuration

Instead of the usual fixed port configuration of most high-end security appliances, the modularity of the 3D8000 Series appliances enables you to choose and change the number and type of interfaces for the appliance. Various Network Modules (NetMods) are inserted into the 3D8000 Series appliances to customize the interface configuration that is right for your network. NetMods are available with integrated fail open/bypass capabilities in the following options:

  • 1Gbps 4 port copper
  • 1Gbps 4 port fiber
  • 40Gbps 2 port fiber SR40
  • 10Gbps 2 port fiber SR
  • 10Gbps 2 port fiber LR

This approach gives you a low entry price and a simple upgrade path. For those needing 1Gbps copper ports today, but have a 10Gbps fiber migration path in the future, this modular approach gives you the option to simply swap out a NetMod and have exactly what you need to fit your network at all times. With up to seven NetMod slots per chassis, the 3D8000 Series appliances offer industry-leading port density.

Boost Throughput up to 4x

TheThe 3D8000 Series appliances offer additional flexibility to grow with your network throughput demands by stacking.

  • 3D8140: Stack two of these appliances to double throughput
  • 3D8250: Stack up to four appliances to grow throughput performance in 10Gbps increments—delivering up to a total of 40Gbps of IPS inspection

With flexible options like these, you can rest easy knowing that your investment is protected for the long-term.
