ThruLink Video: KBC’s New Video Explains Secure Transmission Over Public Networks
27th April: KBC Networks has a new, animated video all about ThruLink. It’s a great introduction to how ThruLink is able to set up secure paths for video, voice and data over public networks such as the internet or 3G/4G/LTE.
ThruLink is a secure, hardware VPN. It allows you to choose from AES, Blowfish or Camellia encryption up to 256bit (the default is AES 128). It’s easy to set-up and manage and is pretty much self-managing. It has no moving parts and no forced-air cooling. In the event of a network outage, it can be set to failover to a different path, e.g. 4G, and then poll the connection until it’s re-established. Once the network is back, ThruLink will then re-build the link automatically, so you don’t need to go to site to reset the link.
ThruLink has been used in applications that range from security to banking and a number of customers have seen significant operational cost savings by replacing leased lines with secure connections over the internet or 4G. It’s available in standard (15Mbps), standard plus (30Mbps), high (100Mbps) & high capacity plus (100Mbps+). The standard and standard plus units have options for embedded 4G for mobile applications.
