Encryptors for Network Layer 2


With the increasing availability of direct interconnection of fast or gigabit Ethernet structures, a LAN can span several locations. Because this LAN is linked via public lines there is a risk of data being tapped or manipulated. Furthermore, third parties may gain access to the internal infrastructure of the network. In such cases, reliable encryption is the only way to ensure the security of the data.

Our solution

The SINA L2 Box S product line provides high-performance encryption components for the secure exchange of information in networks. The flexible and modular architecture makes it possible to use different applications in MAN, WAN and SAN areas with a transfer rate of up to 10 gigabits per second.

The SINA L2 Box S line provides the best possible protection for point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and multipoint-to-multipoint connections. This makes them an ideal addition to our IPsec VPN SINA L3 Box S products.

SINA L2 Box S products allow you to combine your networks with ease and efficiency. They are immediately ready for use and require no further network configuration. The devices work with complete transparency with a speed of up to 10 GBit/s. The encryption has no effect on the functionality and performance of the LAN applications. The additional packet delay amounts to just a few microseconds. Various versions are available for different data transmission speeds to suit your requirements. If you are already using SINA, integrating SINA L2 Boxes S is also simple and can be administrated via the common SINA Management.

SINA L2 Boxes S offer precisely this security for classifications up to RESTRICTED, NATO RESTRICTED or RESTREINT UE.
