Hi all, ever since the ISR G2 routers have been announced the question has been out there about when Cisco will release a VPN accelerator card for the G2 line. Recently Cisco has released the long awaited card. A lot of the time you want to deploy a router at your branch offices for use with a dynamic routing protocol such as DMVPN which the ASA line can’t do. While a small router will work for the branches what router do you use at your head office?
A router by itself just doesn’t have the ability to maintain the number of VPN tunnels that you need for a large environment. For the longest time the answer to use a G1 router with the VPN accelerator card for that generation. Now you can use the G2 line of routers and all of the features that are a part of that router.
