Doubt Cisco Router 2911

Hi Folks,

 

I want to install in my environment 2 devices (1 active and one in standby) that will act as VPN hubs.

 

I believe that 2 Cisco Routers 2911 will suffice for this.

 

My questions are:

 

-What license do I need to apply to get the maximum IPSEC traffic throughput?

-Is it necessary to install a hardware encryption module for maximum performance IPSEC?

Hi edilson.silva1,

 

-What license do I need to apply to get the maximum IPSEC traffic throughput?  By default the devices come with a throughput limitation of 85-Mbs since this is enforced by the US government. The HSEC license removed this limitation:

-Is it necessary to install a hardware encryption module for maximum performance IPSEC? The 2911 comes with an embedded Hardware-Based Cryptography and Acceleration:

Thanks a lot JP!

 

one last doubt: Is there a hardware that offer a better performance than the native hardware encryption acceleration already installed?

edilson.silva1,

There used to be an ISM module you could get but the 2911 is not supposed to be sold anymore:

You can always get in touch with a Sales Rep and see if they can help you.

Hope this info helps!!
