Communication's IPTube-E2 selected by the Department of Defense
Aptos, CA, May 20, 2004
Engage Communication's IPTube-E2
enables the DOD's secure server based applications, which require
that clients are on the same IP subnet, to have clients accessing
the application from remote locations that are bridged across an
"Department of Defense individuals, involved with the successful
deployment of our IPTube-RS530
to tunnel Encrypted Data through an IP connection, requested that
we create a product that would bridge an Ethernet segment across
an IP intranet." said President Mark Doyle. "The IPTube-E2,
as with the majority of Engage's products, is the result of earning
the privilege to further our customer's objectives."
The IPTube-E2 is used to interconnect Ethernet
LANs through an IP network. Ethernet frames that are destined for
a device located on the remote network are encapsulated into IP
packets. The IP packets, with the encapsulated Ethernet frames,
are sent to the IP address of the destination network's IPTube-E2
where the IP envelope is removed and the original Ethernet Frames
are delivered to the destination network's Ethernet device.
Enterprises, Education, Government Agencies
and Organizations use the IPTube-E2's tunnel to transport legacy
LAN protocols, such as NetBEUI, IPX, AppleTalk and Decnet, over
very cost effective, ubiquitous IP based services. Legacy applications
that utilize non routable protocols are able to access services
across an IP point to point connection.
The IPTube-E2 provides a high level of security
by only exchanging packets with the remote network. Additionally
Ethernet Frames within the IP envelope must be addressed to specific
Ethernet MAC addresses. Bridges secure applications that limit communication
to IP addresses within the same subnet across an enterprise Intranet.
