Interop Tokyo 2014 Best of Show Awards: A10 Networks Special Award Winners
• Carrier/SP Networking Category: vThunder CGN
• ShowNet Product Category: Thunder 6630
About the Award for vThunder CGN
vThunder CGN is the virtualized appliance version of A10's Thunder CGN product line. Leveraging carrier NFV concepts by running as a fully virtualized carrier service on a general purpose server, vThunder CGN can extend carrier investments in legacy IPv4 infrastructure, while simultaneously providing a migration path to IPv6 infrastructure. It supports a wide range of IPv6 migration technologies, including NAT64/DNS64, DS-Lite, 6RD, and LW4o6, in addition to CGNAT functions that extend the life of IPv4 infrastructure for carriers that have limited address space, thus enabling flexible service deployment depending upon carriers' specific network protocol and addressing needs and limitations.
For the Best of Show Awards, A10 Networks demonstrated vThunder CGN's capabilities as an IPv4 exhaustion countermeasure and IPv6 migration solution in a virtual environment installed on a general-purpose server.
"CGN will become increasingly important in the IoT (M2M) era, and we tapped vThunder for the special award for the way it supports network function virtualization (NFV) and runs on the same code as hardware products," said Masahiro Kato, Editor in Chief editor of Nikkei Communications Magazine, Nikkei BP Inc., and a judge for the Interop Tokyo 2014's Awards program. "A10 Networks also deserves praise for increasing user choices by offering both hardware and software products at around the same time."
About the Award for Thunder 6630
Thunder 6630 is the high-end appliance model in A10 Network's Thunder Series ADC and CGN product lines. It is the industry's first ADC to be equipped with Layer 4-7 100 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and enabling 150 Gbps application throughput. Thunder 6630 provided CGN services for ShowNet, one of the world's largest interoperability testbeds that also served as the network infrastructure for exhibitors and visitors during Interop Tokyo 2014.
"A10 Networks' ADC products have been used for ShowNet in previous years too, but we've been bowled over by the great performance of this year's Thunder 6630 with its 100 Gigabit interface," said Yuji Sekiya, Associate Professor at the University of Tokyo Information Technology Center, and a judge for the Interop Tokyo 2014's Awards program.
"We are very honored to receive these special awards for our Thunder Series in two categories of the Best of Show Awards," said Hayato Koeda, Vice President Asia Pacific Japan for A10 Networks, Inc. and President & CEO for A10 Networks, K.K. "We can boast about a great many deployment success stories, including the adoption of our carrier grade NAT (CGNAT) by major Japanese carriers as an IPv6 migration solution. Thunder 6630 ADC and CGN is a carrier-grade networking product that provides large-scale address and protocol conversion services with the next-generation high-speed interfaces that our large enterprise and service provider customers need. We will endeavor to continue to drive the network industry and develop the best application networking solutions for addressing customer needs."
