    Giga is the prefix representing 109, or one billion. The on-board Broadcom BCM5701 is a fully integrated 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet Media Access Control and Physical Layer Transceiver solution for high performance network applications. The solution combines triple speed, IEEE 802.3 compliant Media Access Controller (MAC), deep on-chip buffer memory, and integrated physical layer transceiver in a single device. It is the industry's first support for the new PCI-X and the highest performance in terms of both throughput and CPU utilization.

  • 1.26GHz / 1.45V Vcore / Max.29.5W power consumption

hy do you need the NOVA7897 with LM-SSLA?
Virtual Private Networks (VPN) is rapidly becoming the universally accepted method for remote access. VPNs enable you to take advantage of the power of the Internet by providing a private tunnel through the public cloud. This in turn reduces costs and enhances productivity from your remote access applications. Although a VPN is private it doesn't mean that it is secured. Protected solely by passwords, VPNs are very vulnerable. Therefore, our NOVA7897 with LM-SSLA is available to enhance the security of Virtual Private Networks.

What Is IPSec?

Defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), IPSec is a standard that provides a common means of authentication, integrity and IP encryption. It offers two modes of operation-tunnel mode and transport mode.
One of the principal strengths of IPSec is that encrypted packets can be routed and switched on any network that supports IP traffic. No upgrade to the network elements is necessary. This enables the packets to traverse the LAN, extranet and Internet easily and transparently.
Benefits of IPSec to the End Customer
E Less expensive branch office connectivity
E Faster, more efficient links to customers and suppliers
E More secure corporate LANs, including better
protection against inside threats

Secure Socket Layer & Transport Layer Security
Secure socket layer (SSL) is the Internet security protocol for point-to-point connections. It provides protection against eavesdropping, tampering, and forgery. Clients and servers are able to authenticate each other and to establish a secure link or "pipe" across the Intranets or entrants to protect the information that is being transmitted.
The need for SSL
With the growth of the Internet and digital data transmission, applications must securely transmit data to and from remote applications and computers. SSL was designed to solve this problem. With SSL, a connection is made, parties authenticated, and data securely exchanged. The most recent data transmission security is called Transport Layer Security (TLS).

SSL is analogous to a secure "telephone call" between two computers on any network including the Internet. In SSL, a
connection is made, parties authenticated, and data securely
exchanged. The latest enhancement of SSL is called Transport Layer Security (TLS).
