- Enables MACsec Networkwide: Intellisec dramatically extends MACsec to support secure access to multiple cloud services, enabling delivery of MACsec-secured Layer-2 Carrier Ethernet services, such as MEF EVCs, MPLS L2VPNs and Data Center Interconnect, across the network. Until now, MACsec has traditionally been limited to link-based box-to-box applications primarily within cloud services data centers;
- Simple, Low-Cost, Scalable: Intellisec scales easily with the number of interfaces, delivering up to 75% cost savings compared to alternate solutions. Network installation involves a simple upgrade of the system’s physical layer components without impacting or upgrading the ASICs or network processors;
- Maintains Network Synchronization: Precision synchronization is critical to network infrastructure. Intellisec works together with Vitesse’s VeriTime™ technology to maintain nanosecond-level IEEE 1588v2 time stamping accuracy;
- Compatible Extension to Existing Technologies: Intellisec enables network link upgrades independent of the network’s awareness of security protocols.
Vitesse CTO, Dr. Martin Nuss, will also join industry experts from NSA, Ciena, and the Department of Defense in a technical panel discussion, “Network Security,” (NTh3J) taking place on Thursday, March 21 at 1 p.m. local time.
