Data originating outside the local network that is transmitted to a station within the network. Contrast with "egress traffic," which is data originating within the local network that is transmitted to a station outside the network.
Integrated Stateful Firewall for Secure Internet Breakout: The integrated stateful firewall allows outbound traffic to exit, but only allows ingress traffic to enter in response to user-initiated sessions providing robust, thin branch security.
The embedded packet processor incorporates a subset of Sandburst's FE-1000 packet processing capabilities, enabling the QE-2000 to prioritize, classify and route ingress traffic without a separate standalone packet processor.
The unique integrated queuing structure in TeraStream's Packet Exchange Matrix buffers the ingress traffic and executes multicast replication to relieve congestion and provide more efficient ingress bandwidth utilization across the backplane.
