Keith - you are correct and my understanding is that IVS is being phased out - IE - it is another one of the "prior release" feature / functions - Juniper wants to move people who need IVS functionality over to the virtual machine based version aimed at the service provider market.
Thanks for the info re IVS - can you please provide more detail on the product set we need to look at re the Virtual Machine route Juniper owuld like us to follow ?
Matt - here is a link to a data sheet on the VMWare version:
What are the differences between MAG 4610 and 4611?
Does it mean 4610 can provide VPN or NAC, whereas 4611 can provide VPN or NAC, both with application acceleration?
Does it mean the same with MAG 6610 and 6611?
Regarding the 4610 vs 4611. We just bought the 4610s a few months ago. We were told they were they way to go, as new features were released they would be brought to the mags. Now I am seeing a new model that supports app acceleration. Is there a way to upgrade a 4610 to have app acceleration? Or did we just buy last years model?
4610 is a fixed chassis unit for SSL VPN or NAC (UAC)
4611 is a fixed chassis unit meant only for app. acceleration.
It appears that the MAG line is merging three different sets of hardware SA, UC and WXC.
From the description the 4611 is replacing the WXC only and is not a dual purpose device.
