Fortinet FortiGate 5001E1 Network Security/Firewall Appliance

The FortiGate-5001E security system contains two front panel 40GigE QSFP+ fabric channel interfaces, two front panel 10GigE SFP+ fabric channel interfaces, two base backplane 1Gbps base channel interfaces, and two fabric backplane 40Gbps interfaces. The front panel SFP+ interfaces can also operate as Gigabit Ethernet interfaces using SFP transceivers. Use the front panel interfaces for connections to your networks and the backplane interfaces for communication across the ATCA chassis backplane. The FortiGate-5001E also includes two front panel 10/100/1000BASE-T out of band management Ethernet interfaces, one RJ45 front panel serial console port, and one front panel USB port.

The FortiGate-5001E front panel 40GigE, 10GigE interfaces and fabric backplane interfaces also provide NP6- accelerated network processing for eligible traffic passing through these interfaces. All data traffic can also be accelerated by CP9 processors.

You can also configure two or more FortiGate-5001Es to create a high availability (HA) cluster using the base or fabric backplane interfaces for HA heartbeat communication through the chassis backplane, leaving front panel interfaces available for network connections.

The FortiGate-5001E also supports high-end FortiGate features including 802.1Q VLANs, multiple virtual domains, 802.3ad aggregate interfaces, and FortiOS Carrier.

The FortiGate-5001E includes the following features:
  • Two front panel 40GigE QSFP+ fabric channel (port1 and port2) accelerated by NP6 network processors. Using 40GBASE-SR10 multimode QSFP+ transceivers, port1 and port2 can also be split into four 10GBASE-SR interfaces using the config system global set split-port command.
  • Two front panel 10GigE SFP+ fabric channel interfaces (port3 and port4) also accelerated by NP6 network processors. These interfaces can also be configured to operate as Gigabit Ethernet interfaces using SFP transceivers.
  • Two front panel 10/100/10000BASE-T out of band management Ethernet interfaces (mgmt1 and mgmt2).
  • Two base backplane 1Gbps interfaces (base1 and base2) for HA heartbeat communications across the FortiGate- 5000 chassis base backplane.
  • Two fabric backplane 40Gbps interfaces (fabric1 and fabric2) for data communications across the FortiGate-5000 chassis fabric backplane.
  • Two NP6 network processors that accelerate traffic on the interfaces port1 - port4, fabirc1, and fabric2.
  • Four CP9 content processors that accelerate IPS, DLP, SSL VPN, key exchange, and IPsec VPN.
  • The FortiGate-5001E1 includes a 480 GB SSD for storing log messages, DLP archives, historic reports, IPS packet archiving, file quarantine, WAN Optimization byte caching and web caching.
  • One RJ-45 RS-232 serial console connection.
  • 1 USB connector.
  • NMI switch for troubleshooting as recommended by Fortinet Support.
  • Mounting hardware.
  • LED status indicators.
