The R&S SITLine ETH 40G was especially designed for the encrypted, real-time exchange of enormous data amounts. It is the first encryptor that optimizes the performance-critical factors bandwidth, latency, quality of service, port density and power dissipation in a single box.
Encryption takes place on the data link layer (layer 2). This provides a major advantage: Security overhead is reduced by up to 40 percent compared to IPsec encryption (layer 3), thereby saving bandwidth.
This new encryptor class is particularly well-suited for data center operators and users, for backbone networks and high-speed WAN connections. It offers protection in public and private networks without reducing their performance.
