Crossbeam Scales its Network Security Line

Crossbeam Systems has revamped and expanded its X-Series family of network security platforms, enabling systems performance from 5 Gbps to 150 Gbps. Crossbeam delivers its high-performance, deep packet processing by leveraging four-core and eight-core application processing modules (APMs).
With this rollout, Crossbeam is using the latest Intel six core processors to deliver 12-core APMs, each capable of 20 Gbps of fully inspected application performance. The company is also introducing four new chassis models. The line-up includes:

  • X20 -- a flexible four-slot platform pre-configured for one security application, adaptable to run two applications with a total throughput capacity of 5 Gbps.


  • X30 -- a flexible four-slot platform pre-configured for one security application, adaptable to run two applications with a total throughput capacity of 10 Gbps.


  • X60 -- a modular, seven-slot platform that will run up to five applications and can scale to inspect traffic at speeds of up to 80 Gbps of throughput.


  • X80-S -- a modular 14-slot chassis that will run up to 10 applications and can scale to inspect a real-world mix of traffic at speeds of up to 150 Gbps of throughput.


Crossbeam's new X20 and X30 four-slot platforms offer field-upgradability to a seven-slot, 80 Gbps X60 platform by using an upgrade kit. In addition, the X-Series family integrates with HP OpenView Network Node Manager, enabling customers to monitor, configure and report on the X-Series platform along with other network components from within their HP management environment.
