Helps satisfy the ever-growing demand for Internet and cloud services and bandwidth through 100 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity and Terabits-per-second of throughput.

Seamless service integration

Helps you to cost-effectively roll out services and accelerate ROI. As a unified platform from service integration, Allot SG-Tera fully integrates with a variety of value-added services, including Allot WebSafe (URL filtering), Allot WebSafe Personal (endpoint safe-browsing, parental control, anti-malware, anti-virus), Allot ServiceProtector (anti-DDoS, anti-bot), and Allot VideoClass (video optimization).

Intelligent traffic steering and service chaining

Facilitates unlimited differentiation possibilities by expertly steering application and user traffic to Allot and third-party VAS systems, and intelligently forwarding IP flows through relevant service chains, in both physical and virtual network environments.

Future-proof scalability

Reduces initial capital outlay and allows quick response to market changes through a modular platform architecture designed for pay-as-you-grow deployment and supporting:

  • Capacity: up to 15 million concurrent active users, and 300 million concurrent IP flows
  • Connectivity: up to 8 x 100GE ports or 96 x 10GE ports
  • Throughput: up to 500 Gbps in a single platform, and up to 2 Tbps in clustered platforms
  • Management: central configuration, upgrades and management of Allot Service Gateway hardware and services

High availability, reliability

Complies with NEBS Level 3 plus 1+1 redundancy at the system level. N+1 blade-level redundancy mechanisms ensure reliable uptime and service continuity.

Open architecture

Facilitates rapid integration of third-party services. The Allot Service Gateway Tera platform is engineered to AdvancedTCA® standards for off-the-shelf, carrier-grade hardware, and integrates standard software interfaces, protocols, and APIs.

Rich data source

Collects granular usage data and works with Allot ClearSee to export this valuable network source data to business intelligence systems where it can be transformed into valuable insight for decision-makers at all levels.

SDN and NFV compatibility

Enables control-plane elements to manage service delivery based on application, user, device, and context. This is achieved by bringing multiple dimensions of data-plane awareness to NFV and SDN environments. We support proprietary and standard OpenFlow implementations and provide extended functionality to support real-time traffic management, policy control, application charging, endpoint security, traffic steering and service chaining in virtualized and software-defined networks.
