The VPN 3080 Concentrator includes the new Cisco VPN Operating System release 2.5, providing compatibility with more Cisco products, such as the Cisco Secure PIX firewall family and the Cisco 7000 router series. Version 2.5 also offers hardware acceleration for Internet Key Exchange (IKE) operations. As a result, the Cisco VPN 3030, 3060, and 3080 Concentrators can negotiate 25 to 40 IPSec tunnels per second.
