FortiModules Accelerated Interface Modules

FortiModules Accelerated Interface ModulesFortinet accelerated interface modules increase the flexibility of FortiGate® and FortiCarrier™ platforms with 10-Gigabit Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interface Options. They also provide additional security performance for the platforms, adding wire-speed firewall and near wire-speed IPSec VPN security for traffic traversing the module's ports.

Fortinet accelerated interface modules include embedded FortiASIC™ processors to accelerate the performance of your FortiGate system. By performing firewall and IPSec VPN security functions at the interface level, modules offload processing overhead from the host system, freeing system resources for other functions. They are available in both single-width and double-width Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) standards, as well as the Fortinet Mezzanine Card (FMC) form factor for FortiGate-3950 series appliances, and the Rear Transition Module (RTM) form factor for FortiGate-5000 series chassis.

Accelerated Interface Module

Interface Options for Fortinet Products

Fortinet accelerated interface modules increase the flexibility of FortiGate® and FortiCarrier™ platforms with 10-Gigabit Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interface Options. They also provide additional security performance for the platforms, adding wire-speed firewall and near wire-speed IPSec VPN security for traffic traversing the module's ports.

The embedded FortiASIC™ Network Processors (NP) is what makes the modules' increases in performance possible. By performing firewall and IPSec VPN security functions at the interface level, modules relieve processing overhead from the host system, freeing resources for other functions.

ADM-XB2

Fortinet ADM-XB2 Accelerated Interface Module

The ADM-XB2 is a double-width AMC module which provides two port 10 Gig accelerated and includes 2 SR XFPs.

Bypass Modules

Hardware Bypass Options for FortiGate Multi-Threat Security Systems

IT administrators are faced with the challenge of securing a network while also ensuring that the network is always available. For critical network segments, this could mean that network availability is valued over ensuring that all traffic is inspected for malicious activity. High availability solutions, where a system fails over to either an active or standby unit, can reduce the risk of a network outage while still providing security services. To further reduce the risk of a network outage due to a power failure or a security device malfunction, bypassing the device altogether with a fail-to-wire solution can ensure network continuity at times when security cannot be provided.

ASM-CX4

Fortinet Bypass ASM-CX4 Module

The ASM-CX4 is a single-width AMC module which provides four (4) 10/100/1000 copper (RJ-45) Ethernet interfaces for two protected segments of network traffic.
ASM-FX2

Fortinet Bypass ASM-FX2 Module

The ASM-FX2 is a single-width AMC module which provides two (2) gigabit fiber (LC, 850nm) Ethernet interfaces for a single protected segment of network traffic.

Rear Transition Modules

10-Gigabit Ethernet Fabric Options for Fortinet Chassis Systems

Fortinet rear transition modules RTM-XD2 and RTM-XB2 provide 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10-GbE) backplane fabric connectivity to FortiGate and FortiCarrier chassis-based systems. They include FortiASIC™ Network Processors for secure and low-latency communications.

RTM-XD2

Fortinet RTM-XD2 Module

The RTM-XD2 is a rear transition module for FG-5000 series, 2 10-Gig internal ports for backplane fabric.
RTM-XB2

Security Processing Modules

Performance Enhancing Options for FortiGate Platforms

Fortinet ADM-XE2, ADM-FE8, and ASM-CE4 security processing modules provide multi-gigabit throughput increases for intrusion prevention, firewall, and IP multicast applications. All models are based on the carrier-class Advanced Mezzanine Card™ (AMC) specification used in many FortiGate multi-threat security platforms. The ADM-XE2 is a double-width AMC module for 10-Gigabit Ethernet networks. The ADM-FE8 is a SFP-based double-width AMC module for Gigabit Ethernet networks. The ASM-CE4 is a single-width AMC module for 10/100/1000 Ethernet networks. Fortinet security processing modules work to increase overall system performance by offloading select security and network processing functions from the FortiGate host system while maintaining all the benefits of a unified security platform.

ADM-XE2

Fortinet Security Processing ADM-XE2 Module

The ADM-XE2 is a dual-width AMC module for 10-Gigabit Ethernet networks.
ADM-FE8

Fortinet Security Processing ADM-FE8 Module

The ADM-FE8 is a dual-width AMC module for GbE SFP interfaces.

Storage Modules

Expansion Options for Fortinet Products

Fortinet storage modules extend the capabilities of FortiGate multithreat security systems by adding local storage for security and system event logging. The modules can also enable the WAN optimization function in FortiOS software (v4.0 or later), which accelerate applications commonly affected by slower wide-area network connections.

FSM-064

Fortinet Storage FSM-064 Module

The Fortinet FSM-064 module is a single-width Fortinet Storage Module (FSM) form-factor option. The FSM-064 module features a 64 GB Solid State Drive (SSD).
