Hardware Encryption In MSR Series
Q: Is there a encryption engine in MSR Series ?
In MSR Series, Hardware Encryption Engine was put inside CPU, to share part work of CPU. But this engine is not adaptable to plenty of IPSec session exist at the same time. When there has too much IPSec session, we suggest use HNDE, SNDE or ANDE to impove the encryption performance.
HNDE is a MIM or FIC module that plug in MSR, it will use a slot interface. But SNDE and ANDE can be plug on the mainboard of MSR, it never use the router interface.
Except MPUF of MSR50 has a SNDE module, costomer should buy the module to use. You can check the SNDE module in MSR50 as bolow:
Slot No. Board Type Status Max Ports
0 MSR50-40 RPU Board Normal 4
11 FIX-SNDE Normal 1
Or in configuration:
