Do I need a VPN Concentrator?

By Stevie Boy ·
I have a Cisco PIX, would a VPN concentrator ensure that the 3DES encryption of VPN traffic should never be a bottleneck? Which model should be able to cope with 4Mb of continuous encrytion..... and do I need a concentrator - is there a PIX model that will cope with this instead?

pix 506E will give nearly 22Mbps 3DES VPN through. 515E can support higher thoughput.

for small requirments PIX will be enough. but if you have too many concurrent clients and stie to site tunnels. VPN concentrator makes it easy to manage.

Cisco routers can also support VPN.
