A10 Networks' AX Series Wins Grand Prix/Best of Interop Tokyo 2008

AX Series Advanced Traffic Manager is Selected as the Best Carrier/ISP Solution for its Comprehensive IPv6 Solutions and Innovative Web Application Delivery Platform

SAN JOSE, CA. - June 12, 2008 -- A10 Networks® today announced that its AX Series Advanced Traffic Manager won Grand Prix/Best of Interop Tokyo 2008 for best Carrier/Internet Service Provider (ISP) solution – beating many competitors. The Best of Interop Tokyo judges selected A10's AX Series as the Grand Prix winner for its comprehensive solutions for transitioning from IPv4 to IPv6, including a revolutionary multi-CPU architecture, industry-leading performance, superior IPv6 features and reliability.

The AX Series was also invited to be the only server load balancing (SLB) device for the Interop Tokyo ShowNet, where the AX Series load balanced live IPv4/IPv6 traffic while demonstrating superior IPv6 performance and IPv4/IPv6 Network Address Translation (NAT). In the ShowNet, the AX Series exhibited minimal performance difference between IPv4 SLB and IPv6 SLB, clearly outperforming competing solutions that experience greater than 50 percent performance degradation when moving from IPv4 SLB to IPv6 SLB.

This latest award extends the AX Series winning streak. The AX Series also won Grand Prix/Best of Interop Tokyo 2007 in the Network Infrastructure (middle range) category, in addition to winning Best of Interop Las Vegas 2007 in the Application Networks and Performance category, which is a unique distinction. The AX Series earns these honors as a new generation server load balancer with a cutting-edge Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS) architecture, easily surpassing the incumbents in performance, reliability and scalability.
