10 Gigabit Ethernet Encryption Multipoint
Network security offered by Ethernet Encryption
10 Gbit/s is the ideal solution for government organisations. This hardware-based encryption ensures 100 per cent confidentiality, integrity and availability at a rate of 10 Gbit/s in full duplex transmission. The hardware is crucial to this process as transmission rates of 10 Gbit/s would be unattainable without (hardware) processors. Latency times would be many factors higher, making the implementation of a separate national high-security algorithm impossible. Encryption proceeds at full wire speed.
Even in the largest Ethernet data stream, no item of sensitive information can hide from attackers. The only way to eliminate this risk is with cryptographic protection from flexible, high-security Ethernet encryption systems which offer protection in every work scenario: local or global, in point-to-point or multipoint topologies.
Ethernet is a transmission technology for local data networks (LANs) developed in the 1970s. Ethernet allows data to be exchanged in data frames between all equipment in a local area network (computers, servers, printers, etc.). Originally, a LAN was confined only to a single building. With the steady advances in Ethernet technology, this protocol now also connects networks over large distances. The reason for its success was the virtually free granting of licenses, so that numerous manufacturers were able to launch a large number of PC cards and network components for Ethernet on the market.
This diversity led to the very exact implementation of standard, as no manufacturer could afford to make components non-interoperable with those of others. The quick spread of Ethernet made it an inexpensive technology and ultimatley led to its breakthrough. Today more than 90 per cent of all LAN ports worldwide use the Ethernet standard.
Ultra high-performance data transmission rates of
10 Gbit/s over fibre optic networks for the networking of headquarters and computing centres and for storage networks.
- Minimal delay (latency) in real time data transmission.
- Extension of uniform LAN networking according to the Ethernet standard into the MAN/WAN range.
- Readily scalable transmission capacity. No technology change needed in the future if bandwidth requirements increase.
- Quality of service (QoS) and classes of service (CoS) allow individual services to be prioritised so that optimum use can be made of network capacity.
- Expertise is available world-wide, because Ethernet is a well known and tested technology.
- Reasonably priced network components.
