VCL-MX-5010-R: MPLS Router


VCL-MX-5010-R, router is an intelligent MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) router which can be used to securely inter-connect multiple LAN networks over a WAN link using a choice of secure routing protocols including MPLS VPN and IPSec. The VCL-MX-5010-R is a ruggedized routing equipment that is embedded with advanced routing and cyber security features which make it suitable for installations in critical infrastructure such as utilities, sub-stations, smart-grid distribution systems, airports and railways that require high reliability industrial equipment. It may also be installed in IT networks of financial institutions such as banks and corporate networks for Wide Area Applications.

VCL-MX-5010-R is password protected with capabilities that meet and exceed the most demanding cyber-security requirements, including the currently applicable NERC specifications.
