Low-Cost WAN Router Integrates VPN, QoS and Strong Encryption.
The Model 2800 Series combines such high-end features as user-configurable QoS profiles for managed, prioritized traffic with VPN tunneling and IPSec Strong Encryption for secure, private communications
GAITHERSBURG, MD: Patton Electronics, the industry leader in network-access
and connectivity solutions, announces today the availability of a very-low-cost,
Series of Managed VPN Routers with integrated QoS. Patton’s newest router
series lets businesses and service providers “Link-Up For Less” with the industry’s
most affordable solution for secure communication over insecure IP networks
while ensuring high-priority throughput for mission critical data--even in the
presence of bandwidth-thirsty voice and video applications.
Patton’s Model 2800 Series IPLink Router Series offers a unique combination
of features at extremely competitive pricing for a value proposition that is
unparalleled in the communications industry. The Model 2800 Series combines
such high-end features as user-configurable QoS profiles for managed, prioritized
traffic with VPN tunneling and IPSec Strong Encryption for secure, private communications.
By addressing both the security and traffic-prioritization
needs of enterprises at such a low cost, Patton’s IPLink Managed VPN Router
series defines an entirely new category of network routers. Typical VPN routers
provide security when traversing insecure IP networks such as the Internet,
but lack QoS for prioritizing business traffic. At the same time, typical low-cost
routers lack the security or QoS features enterprises require for business-class
networking. The IPLink Model 2800 Series provides business-class traffic-prioritization
and secure, private communications for remote-office, home-office,
and mobile users. The Model 2800 series further reduces network cost and complexity
by offering models with integrated WAN ports, thereby eliminating the need for
external interface converters.
“We offer enterprises and carriers (delivering managed services) a very
real value proposition.” said Burton A. Patton, Executive Vice President, “Network
designers no longer have to choose between low-end Adtran routers and expensive,
“In recent years, businesses and service providers have been rushing
to lock down their networks with firewalls and security appliances,” said Joseph
Gomez, Senior Product Manager at Patton. “Today they’re also preparing for the
impending converged-media revolution spear-headed by VoIP and IPTV. Patton’s
Managed VPN Router covers both concerns by integrating VPN with QoS. Now any
enterprise can afford secure and reliable transport for prioritized, media-rich
The IPLink Managed VPN Routers series (models 2802,
implement IPSec Strong Encryption (AES, 3DES) for data integrity, authentication,
anti-replay, and data confidentiality. Firewall capabilities include Access
Control Lists (ACLs), IP-address and port filtering, and Denial of Service (DoS)
protection. For additional security measures, PPP/PPPoE support with PAP and
CHAP provides authentication services.
QoS features include ToS/DiffServ marking and eight configurable service-class
tags per IEEE 802.1p/Q. With IP traffic-scheduling and shaping, dedicated bandwidth
profiles per flow, configurable burst tolerance, and traffic policing with excess
traffic discard, the IPLink VPN Routers ensure such delay-sensitive traffic
as voice and video get the priority they require. For media-rich content, configurable
IP, PPP, and Frame-Relay fragmentation minimizes jitter.
With the IPLink
VPN Router series of next-generation security appliances, businesses and service
providers now have an affordable, easily-configured one-box solution for secure
and prioritized communication services.
