The Marvell Link Street(TM) 88E6318 device provides the highest level of security protection and complete office networking functionality in a single chip by combining high-speed routing engine, an advanced switch core and hardware acceleration for Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).

The Marvell Link Street 88E6318 device is the most advanced gateway router, integrating the Company's proven IPSec VPN security acceleration engine to secure sensitive network traffic with a high-level of network throughput, and a powerful 64-bit MIPS RISC processor core for full-wire-speed packet routing.
