Taiwanese company GVC is to produce a set of networking products aimed squarely at the Soho (small office home office) market.
Its G2000 VPN router, one of a family of four, includes Web based management and support for MIB I and II network management standards, and allows the sharing of a single IP address between different users.
The hardware comes with two Lan ports, a console port, and optional compression and encryption software.
The device supports IP/IPX routing and spoofing, frame relay, leased line PPP, PPP over frame relay, multilink PPP, IP load sharing, BACP, L2TP and IPSec network protocols. It will also support remote access via a virtual private network, allowing analogue modem users to dial in directly, as well as Internet phone support.
The same company also showed an Internet IP gateway at Computex. The pocket sized device has RS232-to-PC, RS232-to-modem, and RJ45 and BNC-to-Ethernet support. The unit has a maximum asynchronous speed of 115.2Kbps, and includes a firewall for Lan users as well as its own local monitor display.
GVC was also showing an ADSL PCI card with support for Ansi T1.413, Etsi TR238 and ITU G.ADSL standards.
