The VG-500 is a compact, industrial temperature rated device (Internet Appliance) that tunnels layer2 Ethernet. The tunnel can be encrypted with AES or non-encrypted. The VG-500 features two Ethernet LAN ports (4) port switch on trusted interface) and a serial setup port.

The VG-500 encrypts data between private networks using the public Internet or any other network as the transport. This creates a flat, bridged network, a private network within public or private networks. The VG-500 uses AES 128, 192 or 256 bit encryption. AES is the US Government standard, selected using an open selection process, to replace DES and 3DES encryption. The VG-500 network interfaces are Ethernet only. The serial port of the VG-500 can be used for initial setup of IP address. The VG-500 has external 12, 24 and 48 volt options. The VG-500 can operate through firewalls with only one port of your choice opened. It can bridge all Ethernet protocols including IPX, IP, NetBEUI, and other proprietary protocols. The VG-500 is straightforward, easy to configure and maintain. The VG-500 has state-of-the-art AES encryption security without the configuration complexity of VPN.VG-500 is a Simple to set up CS-64 is a (4) channel Multicast Hoot n Holler device and compliments a Desk phone
