Need for Security
Following the introduction of the smartphone, the way we saw and used mobile data changed forever. With the deployment of Long Term Evolution(LTE) networks, our mobile data experience became faster and opened new doors to more services.
But the rapid adoption by subscribers has brought new challenges to the operator. In order to satisfy the needs of their subscribers, operators are rushing to expand the capacity of their wireless networks by integrating other LTE, small cell and WiFi access networks.
This means transporting sensitive subscriber data across untrusted(open and public) networks and allowing all sorts of traffic into their core. So how can the operator ensure that their subscriber traffic remains private and secure while protecting their vulnerable core from questionable traffic and malicious external attacks.
Introducing SMEC IPsec Gateway
The SMEC IPsec Gateway enables operators to securely transport subscriber traffic across public IP networks and protect the core network from malicious attacks in small cell and LTE deployments.
3G/LTE Small Cell Security
Carrier WiFi Security
LTE Security Gateway (SEG)
3GPP & IETF standards compliant
Over 100Gbps IPsec Throughput
Over 1 million IPsec tunnels
Carrier-Grade, High Scalability with ATCA, COTs(commercial-off-the-shelf) server platform
Robust and Resilient Carrier-Grade Solution delivering five-nines (99.999%) availability
IPv4 and IPv6 supported
Multiple authentication supported
Extensive Security Suite
The SMEC IPsec Gateway establishes IPsec tunnels between access nodes(such as small cells and eNodeBs) and the core network, offering a variety of encryption algorithms to ensure the privacy of the subscriber traffic while employing IKE authentication protocols to allow access to only authorized data traffic.
Hardware and Performance
Available in a variety of standards-based Advanced TCA(ATCA) chassis and COTS server platform, the SMEC IPsec Gateway is a highly scalable solution that can seamless range up to over 100Gbps of IPsec throughput and over million of concurrent IPsec tunnels.
A NEBS3 compliant solution, the IPsec Gateway offers full port/board/system basis redundancy assuring no single point of failure and guaranteeing five nines(99.999%) high availability.
With its extensive security suite and various client Authentication, the SMEC IPsec Gateway enables operators to secure their LTE and small cell network deployments, ensuring the security of their subscriber traffic and network. Offering best-in-class IPsec processing performance, the SMEC IPssec Gateway provides comparable performance to larger solutions available on the market, meaning a significantly reduced early stage initial investments(CAPEX). And its efficient design cuts down on the cost of operation(OPEX).
The SMEC IPsec Gateway is the ideal solution for operators seeking to a cost-effective solution to secure their small cells and LTE network deployments.
