Enterasys Networks Inc. today released its new XSR-3000 and XSR-4000 security router platforms.

The additions to the XSR series are designed to meet the networking requirements of large branch and regional offices, integrating wide-area network (WAN), virtual private networking (VPN) and firewalling technologies, the company said.

“With the increasingly distributed nature of corporate operations, it is a requirement today to be able to deliver high-end networking and security capabilities to branch offices,” said Lawrence Orans, principal analyst at Gartner.

“This has created a new demand for integrated branch-office networking devices that can be managed remotely, but deliver similar performance and security to the equipment found in headquarters. These capabilities are becoming even more important as enterprises deploy high-end services such as voice-over IP and video.”

Enterasys also announced two new WAN network interface modules (NIM) for the entire XSR series: ADSL NIM and a T3/E3 NIM that supports fractional connections.

The XSR-3000 and XSR-4000 platforms, and new WAN interfaces, can be ordered immediately and will be generally available next month.
