The VPX3-685 is a fully-featured Layer-2/Layer-3 managed Ethernet router with a highly integrated security subsystem. Enabling the vision of Network Centric connectivity, the VPX3-685 Secure Ethernet Network Router provides an accelerated path to secure network-ready architectures that can interoperate seamlessly within the Global Information Grid (GIG). The VPX3-685 Secure Ethernet Network Router provides the strongest perimeter defense available for your data, in a small 3U VPX form factor.

The VPX3-685 Secure Ethernet Network Router provides up to 20x Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interfaces, and scales to meet small to large platform requirements through flexible software and port configuration capability. Unused GbE ports can be disabled for lower power consumption. Up to two 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) ports are available depending on board options, enabling high-speed switch-to-switch expansion, dual-redundant networks (fail-over), or for architecting high-performance 10Gb/s network backbones. Embedded backplane routing can be achieved with standard Base-T or SerDes GbE and 10GbE XAUI interfaces. A Rear Transition Module (RTM) is available for lab and development use, providing separate connections for all interfaces.

The VPX3-685 Secure Ethernet Network Router follows in the footsteps of our popular 68x series switches/routers, with extensive Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching and routing features, supporting a comprehensive set of industry standard RFCs. The VPX3-685 Ethernet Router also supports a familiar industry standard CLI for setup and configuration as well as SNMP and Web management interfaces, accelerating development time to market and simplifying maintenance support.

Addressing the growing need for secure network communications, the VPX3-685 Secure Ethernet Network Router is an ideal solution to prevent unauthorized access to critical information for applications deployed in air, land, and sea platforms. Securing all possible entry points from attack, the VPX3-685 can be used to secure a data storage network, or protect mission critical applications from viruses, trojans, IP Spoofing, Denial of Service (DoS) and other forms of hostile attack.

The VPX3-685 Secure Ethernet Network Router incorporates Enhanced Security Software and a high-performance hardware-based security engine. This all-in-one Unified Threat Management (UTM) system provides VLANs and VPN (IPSec/PPTP/L2TP) to protect dedicated networks, a stateful firewall to protect against multiple evasive attacks, Network Address Translation (NAT) routing for IPv4 masquerading, port and protocol-based Access Control Lists (ACL), Broadcast Storm Control, IPv6 with IPSec tunneling for secure communications channels, and advanced standards-based cryptographic functions such as encryption, decryption, authentication, and key generation.
