Ethernet encryption up to 40 Gbps
Big data security at unparalleled speed
The R&S SITLine ETH 40G was specially designed for the encrypted, realtime exchange of enormous amounts of data. It is the first encryptor that optimizes the performance-critical characteristics of bandwidth, latency, quality of service, port density and energy consumption 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 with IP encryption (layer 3), thereby saving bandwidth.
This new encryptor class is ideal in particular for data center operators and users, for utilization in backbone networks and for use with high-speed WAN connections. It offers protection in public and private networks without compromising their efficiency.
