Nortel Extends Enterprise Secure Router Platform from Tasman

Nortel introduced a "Secure Router" portfolio designed to extend the power of convergence from main office locations to branch offices.

The Nortel Secure Router 1000 portfolio is comprised of the 1001, 1002 and 1004 for small office and branch office deployments. It also includes the Secure Router 3120 for mid-range branch deployments. Nortel said its Secure Routers deliver more than double the performance throughput at 25% less cost than equivalent router from the leading competitor.

The platform was originally developed by Tasman Networks.

  • Nortel purchased Tasman Networks for $99.5 million to provide a comprehensive end-to-end convergence solution and to round out the company's secure router portfolio for branch office environments. The deal closed February 24, 2006.
