Zyxel Communications— a provider of broadband access solutions has launched the world’s first Green firewall ZyWalls - USG-20 and USG-50 by using Intellienergy Green Technology that reduces power consumption through the medium of traffic, link status and smart fan.

The interface of the ZyWalls is of GbE 5(10/100/1000, Copper), WAN1, LAN/DMZ, 4 for the USG 20 and of GbE 6 (10/100/1000, Copper), and WAN 2, LAN/DMZ 4 for the USG 50. The hardware encryption of DES/3DES/AES and new session rate of 1000 sessions per second, and the SPI firewall throughput is 100 Mbps is the same for both the ZyWalls. The Max Concurrent Session is of 6,000 for USG 20 and 10,000 for USG 50, the power consumption is 15 and 17 Watts. The USG 20 has two Max IPSec VPN tunnels and one Max SSL VPN tunnel, and the USG 50 has five tunnels.

Besides other benefits the UGS series comprise key applications like clean-traffic architecture and endpoint security which protects against network risks such as viruses, worms, Trojan Horses, spyware, phishing attacks, anti spam, content filtering and other emerging Internet threats. Powered by high-performance SecuAsic technology and a hardware-based encryption accelerator, the series delivers multilayer threat protection for small businesses and enterprises. It not only supports multiple WAN ports but also 3G through USB or PCMCIA cards. This feature enables “active-active” load sharing or “active passive” failover configuration to for network connectivity.
