The Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator Series is a best-of-breed, remote-access VPN solution for
enterprise-class deployment. A standards-based, easy-to-use VPN client and scalable VPN tunnel termination devices are included
as well as a management system that enables corporations to easily install, configure and monitor their remote access VPNs.
Incorporating the most-advanced, high-availability capabilities with a unique purpose-built, remote-access architecture,
the Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator allows corporations to build
high-performance, scalable, and robust VPN infrastructures to support their mission-critical, remote-access applications.
Unique to the industry, it is the only scalable platform to offer components that are field-swappable and can be upgraded by
the customer. These components, called Scalable Encryption Processing (SEP) modules, enable users to easily add capacity and
throughput. The Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator supports the widest range of VPN client software implementations, including the
Cisco VPN 3000 Client, the Microsoft Windows 2000 L2TP/IPsec Client and the Microsoft PPTP for Windows 95, Windows 98, and
Windows NT. The Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator is available in four different models to support any business:
Cisco VPN 3005 Concentrator
The 3005 is a VPN platform designed for small- to medium-sized organizations with bandwidth requirements up to full-duplex T1/E1
(4Mbps maximum performance) and up to 100 simultaneous sessions. Encryption processing is performed in software. The 3005 does
not have built-in upgrade capability.
Cisco VPN 3015 Concentrator
The 3015 is a VPN platform designed for small- to medium-sized organizations with bandwidth requirements up to full-duplex T1/E1
(4Mbps maximum performance) and up to 100 simultaneous sessions. Like the 3005, encryption processing is performed in software,
but the 3015 is also field-upgradeable to models 3030 and 3060.
Cisco VPN 3030 Concentrator
The 3030 is a VPN platform designed for medium- to large-sized organizations with bandwidth requirements from full T1/E1 through
fractional T3 (50 Mbps maximum performance) and up to 1500 simultaneous sessions. Specialized SEP modules perform hardware-based
acceleration. The 3030 is field-upgradeable to the 3060. Redundant and non-redundant configurations are available.
Cisco VPN 3060 Concentrator
The 3060 is a VPN platform designed for large organizations demanding the highest level of performance and reliability, with
high-bandwidth requirements from fractional T3 through full T3/E3 or greater (100 Mbps maximum performance) and up to 5000
simultaneous sessions. Specialized SEP modules perform hardware-based acceleration. Redundant and non-redundant configurations
Cisco VPN 3000 Client
Simple to deploy and operate, the Cisco VPN 3000 Client is used to establish secure, end-to-end encrypted tunnels to the Cisco
VPN 3000 Concentrator. This thin design, IPSec-compliant implementation is provided with the Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator and is
licensed for an unlimited number of users. The client can be pre-configured for mass deployments and initial logins require very
little user intervention. VPN access policies are created and stored centrally in the Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator and pushed to
the client when a connection is established.
Cisco VPN 3000 Monitor
The Cisco VPN 3000 Monitor is a software application for centralized monitoring, alert, and data collection on one or more Cisco
VPN 3000 Concentrators. The Java-based utility is compatible with Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows NT. Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP) polling is used to collect statistics from each device. The Enterprise View displays high-level
status for each device in the network. The administrator may also obtain granular data on each device. In addition, the Cisco
VPN 3000 Monitor stores polled data, traps, and logs for historical analysis, capacity planning, and troubleshooting. Standard
tables and graphs are provided.
