Allied Telesis AT-AR061 - Kryptografisk accelerator - PCI
- Kryptografisk accelerator
For commercial, banking and financial institutions wanting to link remote networks together, or for remote VPN connections, Allied Telesyn MAC and PAC cards offer industry standard levels of high encryption. Classified information from security sensitive applications can be fully encrypted when using an Allied Telesyn AR series router or rapier layer 3 switch fitted with an encryption/compression card. Using the cryptographic techniques before transmission across the LAN or WAN ensures the integrity and confidentiality of the data.
Up to ten times faster than well known software algorithms, Allied Telesyn's MAC and PAC-based encryption is fast! Because the encryption is performed on a dedicated encryption coprocessor, the router or layer 3 switch can maintain maximum VPN speeds even when the CPU is under heavy demand from Stateful Inspection and IPsec rule processing.
Since all wide area traffic passes through a Layer 3 device, this is an ideal place to locate the complex hardware required to provide secure data encryption. In addition, integrating the complex key management procedures into AR-series router and rapier management systems reduces the cost of supporting an encrypted network.
Dedicated hardware provides high speed integrated data compression, thus maximizing the bandwidth available across ISDN and leased lines, while minimizing the impact on the router's or Layer 3 switch's core functions. Allowing more data to be transmitted in a shorter time period, the compression engine frees up bandwidth and decreases ISDN connection charges. Hardware compression is compatible with the software compression supplied as standard on all Allied Telesyn routers and layer 3 switches.
