New Intel Router Secures Broadband Connections

Intel Delivers High-Performance Security at Broadband Speed for SOHO Users

AUCKLAND, Dec 1, 2000 – Intel New Zealand today announced the Intel® Express 8205 VPN Broadband Router, a device that helps protect the security of small office and home office (SOHO) users with “always on” broadband Internet connections.

According to Jupiter Communications, by the end of 2000 the number of people accessing the Web via such broadband methods as DSL and cable modems will have increased threefold – from 1.3 million in 1999 to 4 million.** These always-on connections are susceptible to security attacks, yet many customers do not have adequate protection from this risk. The Intel Express 8205 VPN Broadband Router provides security in a high-performance device that can be installed quickly and easily.

“The Intel Express 8205 VPN Broadband Router delivers exceptional virtual private networking (VPN) performance at an attractive price for small sites, rounding out Intel’s broad line of high-performance VPN equipment,” said Scott Gilmour, General Manager, Intel New Zealand. “The higher VPN performance in this segment allows customers with broadband connections to realize more of the bandwidth for which they are paying, while also enjoying robust security.”

The Intel Express 8205 VPN Broadband Router offloads the processing required to run VPNs and firewalls on individual PCs, aggregating these functions into a dedicated device while helping maintain maximum performance of broadband connections. The device supports unlimited users and can establish secure VPN tunnels with 50 other sites. Using
3DES IPSec encryption, the router provides VPN throughput up to 1.3 Mbps.***

The Intel Express 8205 VPN Broadband Router can be easily installed by small business and home users, allowing service providers to deliver high-performance security with every broadband connection without expensive on-site installation.

The new router complements Intel’s existing line of VPN products, providing a high-performance solution for small businesses and branch sites. Based on the IPSec standard, the 8205 VPN Broadband Router is interoperable with the Intel NetStructure™ VPN Gateway Family, as well as other third-party VPN products that support the IPSec standard.

Intel also offers the Intel Express 8205 Broadband Router, which customers can upgrade at a later time with the VPN Option for Intel Express 8200/9500 routers.

The Intel Express 8205 VPN Broadband Router is available today at the suggested list price of US$899. The Intel Express 8205 Broadband Router, also available today, has a suggested list price of US$699. Intel networking products are available worldwide through a network of distributors, value-added resellers and service providers. Additional product information is available at http://www.intel.co.nz/network.

Intel, the world’s largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products. Additional information about Intel is available at www.intel.com/pressroom.
