There are two main reference architectures used for Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server (FPE) deployments: Enterprise Reference Architecture and Standard Reference Architecture.

Enterprise Reference Architecture (ERA) is a scalable unit intended to be deployed within a larger organization. It is comprised of an Edge Transport server, Hub Transport server, multiple Mailbox servers, a Global Catalog (Active Directory) server, and a Client Access Server (CAS), as shown in the following illustration.
