Overview

Switching in the Web data center demands a unique set of capabilities, due to the time-sensitive nature of accessing Web content. A Web Switch must be able to quickly handle an enormous number of sessions, while ensuring that the Web servers it is connected to are topologically close to the user, healthy, and able to fulfill the users' request in the least possible time. It must balance the load coming into the servers, firewalls, or VPNs. The Web Switch must protect the servers against Denial-of-Service attacks, overloaded Intrusion Detection servers and flash crowds. It must ensure persistence, to eliminate e-commerce pitfalls like broken shopping carts and Web forms, while remaining easy to deploy. And a Web Switch must enable new traffic types, including streaming media and wireless.

Nortel Networks Alteon Web Switching Module (WSM) brings all the capabilities of Alteon's award-winning stackable Web Switches to a modular format that is affordable, scalable, and easy to customize for users' unique needs. The combination of the Alteon WSM and Nortel's Passport 8600 creates a complete, high capacity, carrier-class switching system of unprecedented scale. Service providers, hosters, content providers, e-businesses and enterprises can now get state-of-the-art Web OS Traffic Management while aggregating large numbers of 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections to servers, routers, firewalls, and caches.
