For immediate release:
GAITHERSBURG, MD: Patton Electronics, the industry leader in
network-access and connectivity solutions, announces today the
availability of a very-low-cost, IPLink=99 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, Cisco functionality."
"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 content."
The IPLink Managed VPN Routers series (models 2802, 2805, 2821 and
2835) implement IPSec Strong Encryption (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
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
