FAQ: Does this replace any existing hardware?
Answer: You bet it does! It immediately replaces the SA700 appliance and even the SA2500! (although those models are still available as well if you want to go with those instead)
The March pricelist (available to partners/resellers) is out and with it brings the MAG2600! Okay, so the MAG2600 has actually been available since November as the Enterprise Guest Access (EGA) solution, but now it has moved over to the SSL VPN as well. And that was the plan all along: build one box that could serve both UAC and SSL VPN modes of operation (just not at the same time).
Built to handle 100 concurrent users and roughly about the size of a brick, this small footprint appliance is poised to quickly overtake the SA700 and SA2500 products.
Building on top of the new Common Access Licenses for the X500 series hardware, you will also find the X600 series hardware licenses are now available. If you want to go with one of these appliances (an what SMB customer wouldn’t?), here’s all you need to know:
Software: Runs IVE 7.1 or higher (sorry, no backward compatibility on the software)
Hardware: MAG2600 (Just one is needed, but feel free buy as many as you like)
Licenses:Single Appliance Licenses (stackable up to the maximum of 100 concurrent users, of course) ACCESSX600-ADD-10U ACCESSX600-ADD-25U ACCESSX600-ADD-50U ACCESSX600-ADD-100U MAG2600-LICENSE-MBR (allows a single MAG2600 to obtain leased licensing from the optional enterprise license server) - Bulk Enterprise Leased Licenses (installed on the optional license server for leasing to multiple X600 appliances) ACCESSX600-ADD-250U ACCESSX600-ADD-500U ACCESSX600-ADD-1000U ACCESSX600-ADD-2500U ACCESSX600-ADD-5000U ACCESSX600-ADD-7500U ACCESSX600-ADD-10KU ACCESSX600-ADD-15KU ACCESSX600-ADD-20KU ACCESSX600-ADD-25KU
