  • Available in two versions, the Vanguard 6840 and the Vanguard 6841 (includes hardware-accelerated encryption)
  • Investment protection with support for IP, SNA, and other legacy protocols, voice and video in a single device.
  • Supports IP and MPLS VPNs, Frame Relay, ATM, and Leased Line network services.
  • T1/E1/PRI Digital voice support with up to 30 or 60 channels with R2D and ISDN signaling

Features and Benefits

Features Benefits
Two Model Availability 6840 suitable for mid sized branches and software based VPN; 6841 suitable for highly secure applications requiring real-time performance.
Multi-Service Access Integration Integrated services for voice, video, fax, and data all in the same footprint. Reduce CAPEX and OPEX expenditure for medium size branch office and retail outlets where resources are scarce requiring a product that can be easily managed and can perform many different functions.
Flexible and High Performance Architecture Supports multiple applications within a single platform. Easy migration path to IP-based services thus reducing total cost of ownership
Full-featured Voice-over-IP (VoIP) or Voice-over-FR (VoFR) Gateway Standards-based interoperability with voice enabled IP networks. Reduce toll and long distance charges. Added connectivity possible to the traditional PSTN. Pure VoIP support with quality of service to ensure the proper prioritization and integrity of voice traffic. Other applications supported include Hosted VoIP, SIP Trunking, web based call centers and calling features— Caller ID and Call Hold—without requiring a PBX at the branch.
Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) Supports advanced IP and MPLS VPNs, BGP, IPSec, and hardware-based encryption (VG 6841 only), for reliable and secure connectivity between larger office sites, intra-company remote branch sites, and business partners, thus enabling a true e-business environment.
Two 10/100 BaseT Ethernet Ports Enables migration to high-speed LANs and new broadband services such as DSL or cable.
VLAN Configuration Reduce management complexity of enterprise LAN networks while enabling differentiated IP services. The Vanguard routers will prioritize LAN traffic flows and direct them appropriately, thus ensuring data integrity and satisfactory throughput.
Two Integrated Universal Serial Ports Flexible connectivity to vast range of serial protocols serving extensive range of applications in an IP network protecting existing investment in serial applications and devices.
Stateful Firewall Protects sensitive internal data while allowing bi-directional access to trusted sources
Network Authentication Allows greater use of secure extranets for business-to-business enterprise network transactions
User Authentication End user access authentication acts as gatekeeper to keep out unauthorized users
Multi-link capability Allows for dynamic load balancing across multiple WAN connections. Ensures high availability of transport link in the event of primary link failure
Quality of Service (QoS) High performance and network resource optimization through prioritization of delay-sensitive applications (e.g. VoIP, video)
Multiple Configuration Management and Monitoring Features Enables easy and quick configuration along with custom image build, and software image load, all contributing to reduced deployment time and costs
Management via SNMP for standard-based management access. Alternate access via Telnet and Console Port for added visibility into configuration, monitoring, and diagnostics information.
