The Gateway Router is the perfect low-cost solution for IP applications
that demand wire-speed routing over T1/E1, DS3/E3 and OC3 circuits, with options
including dual processors, DC power, and redundant AC or DC power supplies.
Gateway Router includes an easy-to-service 19-inch 4U rackmount chassis, industrial
computer, high-speed error-correcting memory, 12-slot PCI backplane, and 10/100
ethernet port. The Gateway Router uses flash storage with no moving parts to maximize
Each PCI slot accepts LAN and WAN adapters including all Industrial
Series network cards, ethernet cards with up to four ports, and token ring cards.
With these add-on cards, the Gateway Router can interconnect IP networks using
multiple 56/64 K DDS, fractional and full T1/E1, fractional and full DS3/E3, OC3,
token ring and ethernet connections.
The Gateway Router takes advantage
of ImageStreams Standard Architecture for Network Drivers (SAND), which
includes modular support for WAN protocols including PPP, Cisco HDLC, frame relay
and ATM. SAND also makes it easy to troubleshoot LAN and WAN connections by providing
real-time port status and performance monitoring.
The Gateway Router is
ImageStreams most popular solution for midrange router applications that
require wire-speed performance and superior reliability in an easy-to-service
package. The Gateway Router works where most Cisco 3600, 4500 and 7200 series
routers are used, and it includes support for firewall security and IPsec virtual
private network (VPN) applications.
The Gateway Router can be used in a
wide range of applications from the core to the edge. It is commonly used by Internet
Service Providers (ISPs) for multihomed networks that require dynamic routing,
high-density T1/E1 routing, and multiport DS3/E3 and OC3 connectivity. The Gateway
Router is the industrys lowest cost solution for midrange ISP applications
and corporate networks where a higher level of scalability and redundancy is required.
