Gig Throughput on IPSEC - alternatively Layer2 encryption devices


Thanks for the pointers to the Juniper devices. I think I'm really thinking about layer2 encryption, rather than do the encryption using IPSEC. I feel that as its a p-t-p fibre link, this makes
most sense in terms of throughput and least impact on the network. Operating at layer3 the IPSEC solution introduces more complexity than I would like across this link. As I understand
it, with layer2 encryption devices VLANs between the sites, would "just work". I'm interested to hear of peoples experiences with layer 2 encryption devices out there, as I don't have that
much experience with them.

I think my subject line mentioning IPSEC is a bit confusing as I'm really after information on Layer2 encryption hardware.
