Gateways and switches

Secant 3, 4, 5, and 6

The small Secant 3 desktop gateway connects networks at multiple sites without fixed or even public IP addresses, and offers secure remote access for mobile users and integrated support for public services, like a web or data exchange server (private cloud) in an extranet.

As Secant 3 LTE, the gateway comes with a built-in LTE modem, making local networks at locations without a land line connection accessible too.

The Secant 4, 5 and 6 series rack-mountable switches are top-of-rack and spine switches supporting throughput of 1 Gb through 40 Gb over 24 to 48 ports, and come with uplink and stacking ports included.
