DDOS hardware appliances for network security - Arbor Pravail APS vs nsFocus ADS 6020 - Reviews - Feedback

Dear Nanog

I would like to start a discussion on network security DDOS hardware appliances, mainly compairing the Arbor Pravail APS device vs the nsFocus ADS6020 device as I am looking at investing in such a product and would love to hear some industry feedback, reviews, information and from vendors etc.

To provide some background information we are looking at a device for inline filtering to clean / filter out unwanted traffc inbound towards our network automaticaly.

That being said I'm also happy to hear from other suppliers of appliances (not sure who else there is) or recomendations.

For those who don't know much about either device the Arbor Pravail fact sheet can be found here

Like wise the fact sheet for the nsFocus ADS product can be found here


Until recently I was only aware of the Arbor device, although after doing some research I quicky came up with another options, I'm sure many other people have asked / looked into the same questions before so let the debate begin...

Kindest Regards
