e-business Access Starts Here

The 2200 series is a complete family of Internet security gateways for small to medium sized businesses. It provides shared Internet access for the entire office and Virtual Private Network (VPN) access to securely connect multiple sites and mobile workers. ePipe delivers all of this, without the costly infrastructure and call charges of traditional Wide Area Networks (WANs).

The 2200 series allows your LAN to enjoy the benefits of high-speed Internet access over broadband or a dedicated leased-line. The 2200 is also available in multi-access format, with the ability to transparently bond up to four dial-up Internet connections together offering scalable bandwidth up to 512 Kbits/sec, in addition to broadband access.

ePipe Internet and VPN gatewayOptional feature sets include Secure Remote Access (SRA), Site to Site VPN (SSV) and Direct Connection Services (DCS). These allow organizations to participate in the Internet economy at their own pace and within tight budgets. For example, small branch offices may require Web access, e-mail and direct dial connections only. As needs change, you can make greater use of the 2200's functionality.

Robust Security

The 2200 lets you adjust the level of security to meet your changing requirements. A packet filtering firewall isolates untrusted Internet connections from your LAN. Network Address Translation (NAT) hides your internal network from those on the Internet and allows you to internally host Web and email servers transparently.

The DCS and SRA feature sets both provide session-based authentication, while the SSV feature set also provides strong per packet authentication. Encryption schemes include MPPE for PPTP clients (SRA feature set) in addition to DES, Triple DES and Blowfish (SSV feature set).

Bandwidth for Every Situation

The 2200 incorporates ePipe's Multilink IP (ML-IP) technology. This delivers a faster aggregate connection over an arbitrary number of dial-up lines for both Internet access and site to site VPN tunnels. ML-IP can be deployed anywhere in the world without any special provisioning from your ISP.

The combination of ML-IP and the choice of dial-up and broadband connections makes the 2200 the most flexible and scalable Internet, VPN and security gateway. It enables businesses to start with a small number of dial-up Internet connections and migrate to broadband connections as their site to site VPN bandwidth needs increase, or as these services become available.

The Total Solution

The 2200 offers outstanding value straight out of the box and provides the functionality of a router, packet-filtering firewall and scalable-bandwidth Internet gateway in one cost effective solution. ePipe’s optional feature sets also provide:-

ePipe Grows With You, Effortlessly

The 2200 multi-access model lets you start with analog or ISDN modems and simple dial-up connections, then add more as your VPN or Web traffic increases, up to 512 Kbits/sec. You can then migrate to broadband Internet access at any time, adding a cable or DSL modem directly to the 2200. Mix and match with other 2100, 2200 and ePipe ServerWare models to create the most affordable VPN across your organization, with some sites bonding multiple dial-up connections using ML-IP and others using the 2200's broadband connection.
