Transform your branch office experience with the new Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) Family, Cisco’s latest addition to the tremendously successful integrated services router portfolio. The Cisco ISR G2s are part of the Cisco Borderless Network Architecture that enables business innovation and growth across all remote sites. The next generation architecture delivers a new workspace experience by meeting the performance requirements for the next generation of WAN and network services, enabling the cost-effective delivery of high-definition collaboration at the branch office, and providing the secure transition to the next generation of cloud and virtualized network services. Designed for optimal service delivery on a single platform, the new Cisco ISR G2 routers give businesses greater power to deliver a superior customer experience, deploy services “on demand” as business needs dictate, while reducing overall operating costs.
With of the number of employees growing at the branch, IT teams are challenged to securely and efficiently connect remote locations at minimal cost. While the ISR G2 addresses critical branch challenges like the first generation, it also introduces revolutionary ways to make the remote office more productive, more collaborative and more operationally efficiency. These new innovations enable branch offices to Deliver next generation WAN and network service requirements; Become more productive through increased video-based collaboration and rich media services; Securely transition to cloud and virtualized network services; Minimize energy consumption and costs to support corporate sustainability; Enable small IT teams to scale services worldwide.
The Cisco ISR G2 provides a highly secure and reliable platform for scalable multi-service integration at enterprise and commercial branch offices of all sizes and small-to-medium businesses. The excellent service delivery on a single platform, now up to 5x greater performance, delivers the ultimate user experience with the architectural scalability and investment protection needed to minimize overall deployment costs.
The Cisco VPN Internal Service Module (VPN ISM) is a module for the Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) that provides the capability to considerably increase performance for VPN encrypted traffic. The module has a multicore processor that operates independently of the host router resources, helping ensure maximum concurrent encrypted application performance while maintaining competitive performance for other types of traffic. The Cisco VPN ISM supports the latest versions of cryptography standards, including stronger National Security Agency (NSA) regulated cryptographic algorithms such as Suite B Cryptography.
The Cisco VPN ISM is ready to use, allowing quick and easy installation of the module for increasing VPN encryption performance on Cisco ISR G2 routers. The VPN ISM is compatible with all Cisco ISR G2 routers that support the ISM card slot and runs the same level of feature-rich functions as found on the Cisco ISR G2. It integrates all elements necessary to optimize branch-office IT infrastructure for delivery of encrypted application data from the data center and deployment of branch-office applications on demand, and houses them under a single chassis - the Cisco ISR G2.
