How it benefits your business
Extend IPv4 connectivity and migrate to IPv6
Carrier Grade NAT (CGNAT) extends the service life of an IPv4 infrastructure, allows time to plan for an IPv6 transition and ultimately reduces cost by avoiding the disruptions to business operations.
Integrated DDoS protection
Comes standard with integrated Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection of IP address pools to effectively eliminate targeted attacks and ensure maximum service uptime.
Reduce infrastructure cost
With industry leading performance and session scalability, A10 Thunder CGN gateways deliver unparalleled value to improve the bottom line – up to 60% savings in four years.
Advanced CGNAT functions
Standards-based CGNAT with industry leading performance and session scalability.
Advanced logging features
Comprehensive logging options to meet stringent compliance requirements.
IPv6 client access
to IPv4 content
Comes standard with NAT64/DNS64 that enables IPv6 devices to access IPv4 content.
Prevalent protocol connectivity
IPv4 or IPv6 tunneling options for seamless connectivity between either protocol (6rd, DS-Lite, Lw4o6, MAP-T).
Compatibility with advanced IP protocols (PPTP, SIP, MGCP, DNS,H.323, RTSP, etc.).
In the event of a failover, ensure an uninterrupted user experience by maintaining session state.
performance per RU
Breakthrough performance with flexible traffic acceleration (FTA) hardware and high-speed memory lookup (SPE models).
Network Functions Virtualizations (NFV) ready
Deploy vThunder CGN as a flexible virtual network function (VNF) in a Software Defined Data Center (SDDC).
