Juniper Networks introduces new LN2600 Rugged Secure Router

Posted on Aug 12, 2013 in Industry News, News

Juniper Networks, the industry leader in network innovation, has introduced the LN2600 Rugged Secure Router.

The Juniper Networks LN2600 is the latest addition to the LN Series router portfolio, routers which are purpose-built to provide high-performance network routing, next-generation firewall, and unified threat management capabilities in a single hardened platform.

The LN2600 is a hardened device designed to withstand the strongest vibrations and shock. The absence of vents and other openings make the LN2600 dust-proof and splash resistant, and the lack of moving parts such as fans allow it to operate maintenance-free for years.

The LN2600 ships in a 1U rack or wall-mountable chassis that supports 8 Gigabit Ethernet small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceiver interfaces. It is shock-tolerant, impervious to vibration and is IEC IP64, indicating that it is dust tight and splash resistant. The LN2600 is able to operate in extreme temperatures between -40?C to +71?and relies on conduction, as opposed to traditional fans, for cooling. Hardware-based hierarchical quality-of-service (QoS) capabilities enable mission-critical supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) traffic to be prioritized over the network. Dual-boot root partitions and a Non-Volatile Memory Read-Only (NVMRO) option enable more reliable operations and protection against modifications and theft in remote unmanned locations.

The LN2600 is deployed with proven Juniper routing technology, ensuring industry-leading forwarding and routing support even under the most demanding network traffic loads. The high- performance routing capabilities of the LN2600 include radio router protocol support which enables it to address difficult mobile networking issues such as establishing a mesh network configuration using extensions to OSPFv3 routing protocol to include other mobile devices as well as land-based receivers.

he LN2600 provides a hardware assisted stateful firewall, IPsec VPN encryption, and Intrusion Prevention based on the capabilities provided in the industry-leading Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways. As a network edge device, the security capabilities within the LN2600 provide network access protection for critical Infrastructure, whether in a substation, subway, gas or water line, on an oil rig, or on the battlefield.

The LN2600 is available now directly from Juniper Networks and Juniper Partner Advantage Program partners.
