Allot Service Gateway Delivers 2x Performance on Intel-based AWS C6in Instances Compared with C5n Instances

Testing demonstrates milestone that benefits high-performance AWS users.


HOD HASHARON, Israel, June 7, 2023 —  Allot Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT) (TASE: ALLT), a leading global provider of innovative network intelligence and security-as-a-service (SECaaS) solutions for communication service providers (CSPs) and enterprises, today announced that testing of the Allot Service Gateway on publicly available best-in-class AWS EC2 C6in instances, delivered approximately 2x more network bandwidth, and 2x higher packet performance than comparable previous best-in-class C5n instances, using the same compute resources. This first-to-market technology evaluation represents a significant bandwidth utilization benefit for high-performance AWS users who focus on network traffic management and security.


For telecom network operators and network and security solution providers who are moving traffic to the public cloud, there is an ever-growing need for higher-capacity network elements in the public cloud. New test results from leading network-native security and network intelligence solution provider Allot – In collaboration with Intel – show 2x network performance improvement with AWS C6in instances compared with C5n instances using the same compute and memory resources. Moreover, the tests showed maximal networking capacity utilization of the C6in instance, enabling Telco operators and network and security solution providers to double their networking capacity per EC2 cloud instance.


The Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) C6in instances supports higher network bandwidth to scale the performance of applications, such as virtual network appliances (firewalls, virtual routers, load balancers), Telco 5G User Plane Function (UPF), data analytics, high-performance computing (HPC), and CPU-based AI/ML workloads. C6in instances are powered by 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors with an all-core turbo frequency of up to 3.5 GHz. C6in instances delivers up to 2x more network bandwidth, and 2x higher packet performance than comparable C5n instances.


The AWS Nitro System is the underlying platform for the next generation of AWS EC2 instances that enables AWS to innovate faster, reduce costs for AWS customers, and deliver added benefits like increased security and new instance types.

The Allot Service Gateway platform, which was used for performance testing is currently deployed in the AWS cloud with a major communication services provider. It utilizes Allot’s in-line DPI technology to combine traffic classification, automated congestion management, service steering and chaining, and content filtering to ensure optimal Quality of Experience (QoE) for its network operator customers.


“Allot technology is known for taking advantage of all the potentially available bandwidth in a network. That makes the Allot Service Gateway a perfect application to test the C6in instances based on the AWS Nitro System,” said Mark Shteiman, SVP of the Smart Business Unit at Allot. “Our collaboration with both Intel and AWS for Allot’s high-performance Service Gateway application contributed to this milestone. Allot plans to continue collaborating with AWS and Intel to further enhance the networking performance of its state-of-the-art cloud networking solutions.”
