Customers now can obtain a full range of networking and security hardware and software solutions, including routers, switches, firewalls and intrusion detection/protection sensors, from a single source for a monthly rental fee.

SingTel EXPAN also will offer the latest Cisco® integrated services routers, the Cisco 1800, 2800 and 3800 series. Cisco integrated services routers ship with built-in virtual private network (VPN) hardware encryption and acceleration, version 2.0 of the intuitive Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) for ease of management, Cisco IOS® Software-based VPN firewall as well as inline intrusion prevention system (IPS) functions.
