Cisco ASA 5505 and Ecessa PowerLink
Every day we receive emails and phone calls from IT directors and network administrators striving to make their networks run better. We’re going to share some of those questions and our responses with you in a series of “Q&A with Ecessa” posts.
Today’s question comes to us from a school in Brazil.
Q: I have a Cisco ASA 5505 as a border router/firewall and Internet filter. Unfortunately this appliance doesn’t provide a load balance on between two ISPs. I need to solve this problem ASAP!
A: Ecessa’s PowerLink solutions have the ability to load-balance, fail over and optimize traffic over multiple ISP links. While your Cisco firewall handles your security and filtering needs, Ecessa are experts at managing the multiple connections, allowing you to actively and intelligently utilize all the available bandwidth, as well as offer automatic failover for redundancy purposes.
Ecessa offers a full line of WAN management gear that allows you to scale from basic fail over to advanced virtualization of all your connections. For more information about how Ecessa devices work in concert with other networking hardware, please download our WAN Solutions Matrix.
