We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The cost to buy it initially was a single purchase price. This was a cost for the hardware and software, but we got a year of service with it. Annually, we pay them a service fee, but it's not much money."
"The FlexPool consumption-based licensing model has the ability to spin up VMs as needed for NAT, as well as their ADC, which is their load balancing stuff. We are considering that, as that is a pretty attractive feature."
Extend IPv4 Connectivity
Solve IPv4 address exhaustion and extend the life of an IPv4 network infrastructure with carrier-grade NAT to ensure critical applications and services are always available and reliable.
Manage IPv6 Migration
Enable a smooth transition to IPv6 by supporting translation and tunneling between IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
High performance in a compact form factor results in lower OPEX and CAPEX through efficient rack space usage, lower power consumption and reduced cooling requirements.
Junos Address Aware is a licensed application for MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers that helps network operators mitigate IPv4 address depletion, ensure IPv4 and IPv6 coexistence, and pragmatically transition to IPv6 in a nondisruptive and low-risk manner.
Running on high-performance service cards, Junos Address Aware provides carrier-scale address translation without impacting routing or forwarding functions. The solution includes Network Address Translation (NAT), carrier-grade NAT, and IPv6 transition technologies such as IPv4/IPv6 dual stack, NAT44, NAPT44, NAT-PT, NAT64, 6to4-PMT, 6rd, and DS-lite, all supported by a single license. Additionally, Junos Address Aware utilizes extensive application-level gateways (ALGs) to protect widely used applications that are incompatible with NAT.
Importantly, Junos Address Aware helps protect current IPv4 revenue streams as you adopt IPv6, and is operationally proven in hundreds of the largest service provider networks worldwide
