As a multiservice access router, the NetVanta 3448 uses RapidRoute technology to deliver the high-packet throughput required for IP telephony, corporate connectivity, and Internet access. This performance-enhanced platform delivers wire-speed throughput, even with advanced services enabled like Quality of Service (QoS), NAT, firewall, and VPN.
The NetVanta 3448 is a modular, 1U-high, rackmountable metal chassis that offers a single slot to house any of the NetVanta Series Network Interface Modules (NIMs) and Dial Backup Interface Modules (DIMs). For dial backup, an Analog Modem DIM or an ISDN BRI DIM is available, preventing downtime by dialing around a failed circuit to any PPP-compliant device. The NetVanta 3448 also includes two 10/100Base-T Ethernet interfaces and a fully managed, non-blocking, eightport switch which can be separately powered to yield an 802.3af-compliant PoE switch delivering a full 15.4 watts per port.
