New Cisco router helps users manage VPNs

Cisco Systems' new virtual private network (VPN) routers sport several innovative features that will give IT managers greater control over the performance and security of virtual nets.

The networking giant recently announced the high-end 7100 Series VPN routers, designed for use at corporate headquarters and at regional offices that need to support numerous, far-flung sites and/or remote users.

The routers offer firsts such as the ability to monitor VPN performance data and to maintain encrypted tunnel sessions among routers even when no data is being transmitted, according to industry experts.

The 7100s handle tunnelling, data encryption, security, firewall features, bandwidth management, and service-level validation.
