Title: Brocade Router Encryption Cards
Post by: Telair on January 29, 2015, 05:21:46 PM
Humm...  Interesting.  I suppose banks and such that would like to do heavy encryption of their high-speed WAN links would like this.

"The new security functionality added to the Brocade MLXe routers includes both 256-bit IPsec encryption and 128-bit MACsec encryption, the gold-standard protocols used by organizations to help ensure end-to-end data protection. Both of these security protocols can be enabled at wire speed for up to 44 Gbps (IPsec) or 200 Gbps (MACsec) throughput per module, meeting the highest levels of network performance requirements."
