The Curtiss-Wright VPX3-685 Series Secure Routers is a fully-featured Layer-2/Layer-3 managed Ethernet Switch and Router with a highly integrated security subsystem.

Enabling the vision of Network Centric connectivity, the VPX3-685 Secure Router provides an accelerated path to secure network-ready architectures that can interoperate seamlessly within the Global Information Grid (GIG). The VPX3-685 provides the strongest perimeter defense available for your data, in a small 3U VPX form factor.

The VPX3-685 provides up to 20x GbE interfaces, and scales to meet small to large platform requirements through flexible software and port configuration capability. Unused GbE ports can be disabled for lower power consumption. Up to two 10GbE ports are available depending on board options, enabling high-speed switch-to-switch expansion, dual-redundant networks (fail-over), or for architecting high-performance 10Gb/s network backbones. Embedded backplane routing can be achieved with standard Base-T or SerDes GbE and 10GbE XAUI interfaces. A Rear Transition Module (RTM) is manufactured for lab and development use, providing separate connections for all interfaces.

The VPX3-685 follows in the footsteps of our popular 68x series switches/routers, with extensive Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching and routing features, supporting a comprehensive set of industry standard RFCs. The VPX3-685 also supports a familiar industry standard CLI for setup and configuration as well as SNMP and Web management interfaces, accelerating development time to market and simplifying maintenance support.

Addressing the growing need for secure network communications, the VPX3-685 is an ideal solution to prevent unauthorized access to critical information for applications deployed in air, land, and sea platforms. Securing all possible entry points from attack, the VPX3-685 can be used to secure a data storage network, or protect mission critical applications from viruses, trojans, IP Spoofing, Denial of Service (DoS) and other forms of hostile attack.
