Lucent Enhances VPN Firewall with Deep Packet Inspection, VoIP

Lucent Technologies introduced its new VPN Firewall Brick 700 and the VPN Firewall Brick 1200 for large enterprises and service providers.
Both products feature advanced functionality such as high performance packet handling, deep packet inspection, an innovative Bell Labs-developed operating system, system failover that ensures continuity for VoIP and data sessions, built-in denial of service protections, hardware-based IPSec VPN acceleration, and benchmarking.



Both products also support real-time, latency-sensitive IP-based multimedia services such as VoIP and IP videoconferencing. Capabilities include Dynamic Pinholing, which uses layer 7 filtering to recognize IP communication packets and dynamically open ports on the system to move the packets only between the initiation point and the endpoint, closing the ports when the call is terminated. Lucent said this is a significant improvement over the current model for IP-based voice traffic which entails a firewall device permanently or temporarily "opening" a range of ports to allow IP voice calls. The control of dynamic pinholing reduces the chance that malicious hackers can exploit these open ports to gain entry to a Lucent-protected network through this technique.



The Brick 700 supports 1.7 Gbps firewall performance, 425 Mbps 3DES (Data Encryption Standard) VPN performance and 350Mbps AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) VPN performance with built-in encryption accelerator cards. The platform also features eight 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports and supports up to 7,500 simultaneous VPN tunnels, 4,094 VLANs, 350 virtual firewalls and 1 million simultaneous sessions.



The Brick 1200 is available in a standard and high performance 1200 HS model. The standard model supports up to 3.0 Gbps firewall performance, 1.1 Gbps 3DES VPN performance and 1.1 Gbps AES VPN performance with the built-in encryption accelerator card. The platform also features eight 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports and two mini-GBIC SFP Gigabit ports. It supports up to 10,000 simultaneous VPN tunnels, 4,094 LANs, 500 virtual firewalls and 2 million simultaneous sessions.



The Brick 1200 HS supports up to 4.5 Gbps firewall performance, 1.7 Mbps 3DES and 1.7 Gbps AES VPN performance with the built-in encryption accelerator card. The platform also features fourteen 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports and six mini-GBIC SFP Gigabit ports. It supports up to 20,000 simultaneous VPN tunnels, 4,094 VLANs, 1,100 virtual firewalls and 3 million simultaneous sessions.
