Simultaneous IP connections flowing through the module for 500 users
The HTTP, FTP, POP3, and SMTP protocols that the module inspects are not always on. Instead, they are intermittent and periodically activated when a user attempts to browse a Website, download a file, retrieve electronic mail and etc. The module uses its Statistical Multiplexing technique to take advantage of these intermittent nature of protocols in order to utilize the available resources efficiently.
250 simultaneous connections for HTTP protocol with an additional queue of 128 connections
The CSC-SSM devotes a large number of simultaneous connections to HTTP because it is the most frequently used protocol.
45 simultaneous connections for SMTP and POP3 protocols with an additional queue of 128 connections
Use of large attachments through electronic mail to broad distribution lists may exceed the number of allocated simultaneous connections.
50 simultaneous connections for FTP protocol with an additional queue of 128 connections
Each FTP download requires several simultaneous connections for control transactions and file downloads. The number of allocated simultaneous connections may be exceeded when the module is protecting dedicated FTP servers.
