Best VPN endpoint for GB speed IPSec throughput?

I'm involved in setting up a WAN connection to a remote backup site via SM fiber at 1GB speed; what device best supports 1GB throughput of IPSec traffic - 1700/1800, PIX/ASA, 2600/3600, 7200, 3750...etc.

There aren't going to be many hosts on either end LAN segments, but due to the volume of backup data, throughput may be quite high.

Thanks,

Marc

PIX/ASA is best choose for 1GB throughput.

Router 1700 supports:

168-bit 3DES IPSec VPN throughput: 15 Mbps

128-bit AES IPSec VPN throughput: 4.5 Mbps

Try this link:

Hi,

I dont know why you would like to do IPSec over a fiber link but...

look at this...

Thanks to both of you for your input and documentation.

I settled on an ASA5520 and an 1821 router, but both might be supplanted if management favors link speed over the need to encrypt.
