The Routing Firewall ZL2 is the second generation of a robust routing platform for HP Networking zl Series switches, with capabilities like BGP and MPLS.


Advanced Intelligent Edge Router.
The combination of a .vantronix Router ZL2 running in an HP Networking E8200/E5400 zl Series switch on the Advanced Services zl Module is an enterprise-grade routing solution. The ZL2 is physically integrated in the HP Networking E-Series platform, interoperates with the HP Networking management and software platform, and operates as an enterprise-grade Firewall, Router, Load Balancer, VPN, IPv6 Gateway, and anti-spam solution. The ZL2 Advanced Intelligent Edge Router offers .vantronix Trusted Proactive Security in an HP Networking Adaptive Edge Architecture.

.vantronix is an HP AllianceONE Select Partner in Hewlett-Packard's alliance partner ecosystem that brings together ISVs, IHVs and SIs to deliver Converged Infrastructure solutions that can be integrated and tested across servers, storage and networking.

HP AllianceONE Networking Integration Tested

The .vantronix RT-ZL2 provides a robust routing platform for HP chassis-based switches. With capabilities such as BGP and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), .vantronix provides effective and efficient routing capabilities at the edge of the network. This capability can be easily upgraded to a fully functional firewall capability delivering a robust security solution at the network's interconnection.

The solution delivers BGP with multiple full feeds and MPLS for edge routing with up to 1024 Routing Domains. It includes integration of OSPF and BGP with fully separated routing domains (aka. VRFs) and full policy-based routing (PBR) using a packet filter classification engine. The router module can be upgraded easily to a fully functional firewall.

You can use the firewall module in any empty slot of the HP Networking E8200/5400 zl switch series, even with multiple firewall modules in a single switch.
