Businesses NCS - SIS KG340_345 ImageNSA-Certified Government-Strength Encryption at OC-192 Speeds

The SafeNet Type 1 SONET Encryptor (KG-340) is a high-performance solution for SONET/SDH network security applications demanding speeds up to 10 Gbps.

The KG-340 integrates transparently and easily into new and existing SONET/SDH network architectures with line-rate throughput, extremely low latency, and no overhead.  As a key part of the Cryptographic Modernization Initiative, the encryptor is ideal for high-speed data, as well as time-sensitive voice and video applications traversing the Global Information Grid.

Up to 384 independent security associations and key pairs can be configured to support encryption at STS-1 level granularity or any Path-level SONET/SDH encryption is supported at various rates and at distances up to 80 kilometers over a duplex fiber-optic network connection.  Administrators can selectively encrypt, zeroize, regenerate, or bypass section, line, and path overhead bytes when configuring these connections.

A single, comprehensive solution, the KG-340 delivers scalable performance and seamless end- to-end integration, optimizing security without compromising operations or performance. It combines highly secure, NSA-approved algorithms with the flexibility to integrate into SONET/SDH-based networks at virtually any rate.

The encryptor´s integrated keypad and RS-232 serial interface provide local management access.  Operational status is displayed through front panel LEDs and on a two-line 20-character LCD.  The status of the local and network interfaces, power, temperature, battery, system operation, security, and interface transmission and reception are displayed via LEDs.
