RadiSys Enhances Security Gateway
Mobile carriers are increasingly leveraging Wi-Fi networks to lower their costs by offloading traffic and providing improved connectivity for their customers. Offloading of traffic to Wi-Fi helps the use of unlicensed spectrum, thus lowering the cost per bit for the carrier. However, without a dedicated offload solution from their equipment provider, such as a 3GPP standards-based TTG, the connection between the carrier's network and a Wi-Fi network are often "untrusted" and are not secure. The enhanced SEG-100 provides the secure solution that carriers need.
"Carriers are looking for highly scalable and cost effective solutions to protect networks and mobile traffic," said Jeff Sharpe, senior product line manager at Radisys. "Compared to enterprise-class security offerings, the SEG-100 is a carrier-class solution that supports an industry-best 200,000 concurrent, bidirectional IPSec tunnels running at speeds greater than 10Gbps on a stateful, high availability system, thus enabling lowest cost per subscriber."
