BURLINGTON, Mass. -- Quarry Technologies, an innovative supplier of intelligent network-security edge systems, was named the winner in the first public multi-vendor test of Virtual Private Network (VPN) equipment targeted at service providers. Light Reading, the premier online information resource for the networking industry, worked with its testing partners, Network Test and Spirent Communications, to develop and conduct this assessment of carrier-grade products. Quarry Technologies' iQ4000 Service Edge Switch was given the nod in what was to date the most grueling VPN test regimen ever run - pushing more than ten times the volume of traffic of any previous independently funded test, and demanding literally thousands of tunnels. The results attest to the ability of Quarry Technologies' network security systems to deliver the highest throughput, offer superior fault tolerance, and provide powerful, intuitive service management functionality. "VPNs are one of the hottest markets in networking today because they address a fundamental problem with Internet services," said Stephen Saunders, Co-founder of Light Reading. "By simply adding carrier-class VPN equipment to their networks, service providers can offset the cost of delivering basic connectivity, and begin offering secure value-added IP services with great margins. These are services that enterprise customers are crying out to receive." Read the results of the test here: Carrier-Class IPSec: the Bigger the Better Quarry Technologies Inc.
