Detailed Information

High Density Analog Interface Cards

The Catalyst 4000 8-Port RJ21 FXS module for the Access Gateway Module is a high density analog phone and FAX relay interface. By providing service to analog phones and FAX machines, the eight Foreign Exchange Station (FXS) ports emulate a PSTN central office (CO) or Private Branch Exchange (PBX).

Hardware Encryption Accelerators

The Catalyst 4000 Encryption Service Adapter (ESA) is a high-performance data encryption module that implements data encryption and data authentication algorithms. The ESA attaches to the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) connector on the Catalyst 4000 Access Gateway Module. The ESA includes a public key math processor and a hardware random number generator. These features support public key cryptography for key generation, exchange, and authentication. The ESA can encrypt and authenticate two full duplex T1 or two E1 communication links. Each data line can be channelized with a separate encryption context. The ESA provides IPSec Data Encryption Standard (DES) 56-bit and 3DES 168-bit encryption.
