The Cisco Firewall Services Module (FWSM) is a high-performance, integrated stateful inspection firewall with application and protocol inspection engines. It provides 5.5 Gbps of throughput, 100.000 connections per second, and one million concurrent connections. Up to four FWSMs can be installed in a single chassis, providing scalability up to 20 Gbps per chassis. As an extension to the Cisco PIX/ASA family of security appliances, the FWSM provides large enterprises and service providers with superior security, performance, and reliability.

Based on Cisco PIX/ASA firewall technology, the FWSM is a hardened, embedded system that eliminates security holes and performance-degrading overhead. The Cisco FWSM tracks the state of all network communications and prevents unauthorized network access. It delivers strong application-layer security through intelligent, application-aware inspection engines that examine network flows at Layers 4-7, including market-leading protection for voice over IP (VoIP), multimedia, instant messaging, and peer-to-peer applications.

GTP allows multiprotocol packets to be tunneled through the GPRS backbone between GSNs. GTP provides a tunnel control and management protocol that allows the SGSN to provide GPRS network access for a mobile station by creating, modifying and deleting tunnels. GTP uses a tunneling mechanism to provide a service for carrying user data packets.
