Ipanema Unveils a New Generation of Integrated WAN Optimization Devices with Breakthrough Performance, Expansion Capabilities

Intelligently Integrates External Application-centric Network Devices; Makes Them Benefit From Visibility, Optimization and Acceleration

WALTHAM, MA - August 21, 2008 - Ipanema Technologies, a leader in application traffic management systems for wide area networks, today launched a new generation of integrated WAN optimization devices.

Ipanema's Autonomic Networking System is a solution supported by hardware devices, ip|engines that perform a complete range of application traffic management functions including visibility, optimization and acceleration. The ip|engines are designed to be placed in data-centers and branch office locations.

The new generation of ip|engines offer breakthrough performance to match the specification of the largest and most complex networks and richest business applications of today and tomorrow. Each ip|engine also offers new innovative auxiliary ports for system extension.

The ip|e 5ax offers the highest performance in its price class and form factor. This 230x200x33mm compact device handles WAN traffic of up to 8Mbps for both download and upload and 20/2Mbps for download and upload. The ip|e 5ax sports an 80GB disk for improved caching capabilities. The device specification makes it ideal for branches fitted with modern ADSL2+ or SDSL links.

The ip|e 1800ax is a carrier grade device able to manage up to 1Gbps WAN traffic. It includes redundant power supply and three hot swap disks of 750GB with RAID capabilities.

The new range also includes the ip|e 120ax, ip|e 140ax and ip|e 1000ax models to cope with the variety of WAN access bandwidths.

With the new auxiliary ports, Ipanema customers receive the promise of continuous expansion capabilities. The ports are designed to attach external devices to the ip|engines. The ip|engines are able to selectively divert a part of the WAN traffic to the ports for external processing. The diverted flows are ensured to be individually monitored and optimized by the ip|engines before and after their transformation.

"The new auxiliary ports are a fundamental advance in WAN optimization architecture principles," said Thierry Grenot, chief technology officer at Ipanema Technologies. "Ipanema is now able to intelligently integrate external application-centric network devices in its autonomic architecture and make them benefit from its visibility, optimization and acceleration features."

The new ip/engine line is available immediately. The ip|e 5ax price begins at $3,150. The ip|e 1800ax price begins at $51,000.
