SRX1500 Firewall Overview

SRX1500 Firewall Overview

Juniper Networks SRX1500 Firewall expands the SRX Series family of security platforms. The SRX1500 Firewall is a mid-range dynamic services gateway that consolidates security functionality and uncompromised performance for small to medium enterprises. With advanced security and threat mitigation capabilities, the SRX1500 Firewall provides campus edge Integrated Security Appliance (ISA) support.

The SRX1500 Firewall has a modular 1U chassis with twelve 1G Ethernet ports, four 1G SFP ports, and four 10G SFP+ ports. It contains two slots for WAN Physical Interface Modules (PIMs), one slot for an SSD device, and two slots for power supplies.

The SRX1500 Firewall is available in two models:

  • SRX1500 (AC)–SRX1500 Firewall with a 120 GB SSD (with 100 GB usable space) and AC power supply

  • SRX1500 (DC)–SRX1500 Firewall with a 120 GB SSD (with 100 GB usable space) and DC power supply

The SRX1500 Firewall runs the Junos operating system (Junos OS) and supports the following features:

  • Firewall support with key features such as IPsec and VPN

  • Advanced security services (IPS, AppID, Content Security) and threat mitigation capabilities

  • High availability

  • QoS

  • Secure boot

  • Juniper Juniper Advanced Threat Prevention Cloud (Juniper ATP Cloud)

The services gateway runs the Junos OS and can be managed using the CLI, Junos Space, and J-Web.

SRX1500 Firewall Field Replaceable Units Overview

Field-replaceable units (FRUs) are components that you can replace at your site. The power supplies are the only FRUs on the SRX1500 Firewall. The power supplies (if redundant) are hot-swappable. You can remove and replace the power supply without powering off the services gateway or disrupting the services gateway functions.

Benefits of the SRX1500 Firewall

  • High performance—The SRX1500 supports up to 9-Gbps of firewall throughput and is suited for enterprise campus and data center edge deployments.

  • Simplified deployment with minimal manual intervention—The Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) feature enables you to provision and configure the SRX1500 automatically, thereby reducing operational complexity and simplifying the provisioning of new sites.

  • Advanced threat protection—The SRX1500 supports the intrusion prevention system (IPS), Juniper Juniper Advanced Threat Prevention Cloud (Juniper ATP Cloud), antivirus, and antispam features, which protect against potential vulnerabilities. Juniper ATP Cloud protects against zero-day attacks and other unknown threats.
