AT&T and Cisco Collaborate on Encrypted MPLS Transport

AT&T and Cisco introduced an enhanced encryption solution for enterprise customers' MPLS networks that creates a single, ultra-secure, encrypted connection -- known as a trusted group tunnel -- over an existing MPLS network, while maintaining existing service level agreements.

The enhanced encryption solution uses the Cisco tunnelless virtual private network based on Group Encrypted Transport (GET VPN) technology. Tested in the AT&T Proof-of-Concept Labs, this solution will be available to AT&T customers in the first quarter of 2007.

Cisco Group Encrypted Transport is offered as an upgrade for the Cisco IOS software on Cisco integrated services routers, Cisco 7301 Routers and Cisco 7200 Series Routers.
