Stoke supercharges 4G LTE Security eXchange with 5X performance boost


Stoke, a developer of mobile broadband, announced a new version of its Stoke Security
eXchange solution for 4G/LTE networks.



Capable of 40 Gbps of throughput, the Security eXchange with XGLC packet processing card
equips operators with unmatched capabilities to secure and encrypt huge volumes
of LTE mobile broadband services without introducing latency or impairing



The ability to adapt to traffic surges, deliver a high quality multimedia experience,
aggregate multiple radio types and secure IP-based communications are among the
chief operator priorities as they transition to 4G/LTE.



With mobile broadband traffic expected to grow by over 3000 percent over the next five
years, there is intense pressure on traditional network infrastructure elements
to secure and intelligently handle exponentially increasing mobile broadband



Integrating encryption into LTE Evolved Packet Core (EPC) elements can significantly reduce
performance whereas specialized approaches such as Stoke’s relieve this



“Security is a priority function in LTE networks and is also a prescribed aspect of 3GPP
mobile networks,” said Jennifer Pigg, vice president at industry analyst firm
The Yankee Group.



Since the beginning of 2010, Stoke has consistently increased its shipment rate by 50
percent quarter on quarter, and between Q4 of 2010 and Q2, 2011 has more than
doubled its installed base.



“This performance increase continues our strategy of enabling operators to keep ahead
of the traffic demand curve,” said Mike Homeier, vice president of product
management at Stoke.



“Achieving true line rate, 10 Gbps encryption stretches the physical boundaries of what
has previously been possible. It exemplifies leading edge silicon design and
manufacturing and once again raises the bar for other mobile broadband vendors.
We have broken new ground in amplifying the performance of our already
outstanding solution,” Homeier added.
