Avaya 4134 Secure Routers

Consolidate branch networking functions with a powerful modular system that converges routing, security and unified communications services in a single, competitively-priced platform.

The Avaya Secure Router 4134 is a modular, multi-service platform that integrates multiple networking functions, including routing, WAN, Ethernet switching, voice media gateway and security into a single device. It also features an embedded server module that can host applications and simplify unified communications deployments. This multi-service integration can reduce the number of devices needed at the branch or regional site, generating substantial operational and capital cost savings for your business.

The Secure Router 4134 offers the performance and connectivity that enable it to not only handle the demands of the integrated branch, but also act as the regional or headquarters router for many enterprises. In doing so, it can cost-effectively and securely concentrate traffic from hundreds of remote sites.

Integrated Unified Communications Services for Microsoft and Avaya

The Secure Router 4134 can uniquely host unified communications services on a dedicated co-processor module — allowing UC services to be combined with the Secure Router 4134’s voice media gateway, routing, switching and security functions in a single integrated device. This combination can simplify operations and is ideal for enterprises considering deploying UC services to their branch or remote sites. The Secure Router 4134 can host either Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS) or Avaya Software Communication System (SCS) unified communications software. For Microsoft OCS, the Secure Router 4134 provides OCS mediation services functions, allowing Microsoft OC clients to gateway to the PSTN or to other non-OC clients. For Avaya SCS, the Secure Router 4134 can host call server, unified messaging, conferencing and presence applications for up to 250 SCS users, while also providing voice media gateway, data and security services to the SCS environment.

Voice media gateway services

The Secure Router 4134 can connect to the PSTN as well as support conventional TDM- based telephony devices through a set of integrated voice interfaces. T1/E1, FXS and FXO interfaces are all available for flexible telephony connection. With its integrated media gateway services, the Secure Router 4134 can connect local IP phones, SIP clients as well as analog telephony devices directly to the PSTN, eliminating the need to route voice traffic back to a central site, saving on transmission costs. Secure Router 4134 media gateway services are interoperable with Avaya, Microsoft OCS and third-party SIP call servers.

Survivable SIP gateway

The Secure Router 4134 supports a survivable SIP gateway feature that facilitates connectivity of SIP-based registered clients, allowing enterprises to take full advantage of VoIP and other advanced SIP services in their remote branch sites. This feature further provides business continuity (or survivability) for SIP devices via failover to the Secure Router’s PSTN interfaces in case of loss of the primary IP connection.

Reliable performance for converged branch applications

The Secure Router 4134 is a dependable solution that can be deployed in a variety of configurations to maximize uptime with no single points of failure. Data, voice, video and other multimedia applications perform more smoothly without the latency, packet loss and jitter encountered with other solutions, resulting in the ability to provide the same enterprise-class service and quality of experience to remote sites and branch offices as is available at corporate headquarters.

Robust routing

Routing services include a full IPv4 and IPv6 protocol set, including BGP-4 and multicast capabilities. A full-function IPv6 implementation also enables deployment into environments that require extended IP addressing with the same routing services — all without any additional system memory requirements.

Integrated Ethernet switching

Integrated high-density Ethernet switching, including Gigabit, Fast Ethernet and Power over Ethernet (PoE) connectivity, enables flexible connection of local area network (LAN) devices, such as powered services for IP telephony devices. A variety of Ethernet switching modules enables up to 54 Gigabit, 72 Fast Ethernet or 72 PoE ports. The Ethernet switch ports can operate at either Level 2 or Level 3, enabling dynamic connectivity of devices and subnets across your network.

Integrated security

Powerful, fully-integrated security features include VPN and firewalls for increased reliability and user confidence. Capabilities include stateful packet firewall, detection and prevention of more than 60 Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, VPN hardware acceleration for hub and spoke deployment over IPSec and VPN tunnels, and IPSec VPN data-encryption services with AES, 3DES, DES, SHA-1, MD-5 and Diffie-Hellman support.

Advanced quality of service

Quality of service goes beyond Layer 3 flow-based support by including Layer 2 class-based queuing. The highest granularity of priorities (eight levels) provides maximum performance with the lowest latency for voice, video and other high-priority traffic while guaranteeing bandwidth among all classes.

Multi-link capabilities

Avaya Secure Router 4134 provides best-in-class MLPPP and MFR (FRF.16 and FRF.15) support to allow bonding of T1/E1, T3 and other WAN interfaces to create a single virtual interface capable of transmitting at the maximum bandwidth available. Multi- linking enables hassle-free bandwidth scalability, high-speed video, voice and data transfer while securing connectivity from individual link failures.

Simple to install, simple to scale modular platform

The Secure Router 4134 provides advanced operational features while simplifying, or eliminating, time-consuming and confusing installation tasks. The router’s unique chassis has four small module slots and three medium ones to support the dynamic demands of growing businesses. Four small slots support low-density data or voice modules. Medium slots can be used for WAN, Ethernet or voice carrier modules. A voice carrier module also hosts up to four small voice modules (FXS or FXO) in a single medium module slot and can thereby increase total voice port capacity. The modular and flexible Secure Router 4134 can support:

  • Up to 72 Power over Ethernet 10/100 Mbps ports 
  • Up to 58 Gigabit Ethernet switching ports
  • Up to 64FXS or FXO ports
  • Microsoft Mediation Services Module
  • Up to 3 Clear or Channelized DS3/T3 ports
  • Up to 31 T1/E1 ports • Up to 7 Serial or ISDN BRI/PRI ports • Upto3HSSIports • Up to 4 ADSL2+ ports

The Secure Router 4134 employs an industry-aligned command line interface (CLI) that makes it easy to set up and manage. Features include:

  • On-Premise, Console and Command Line Interface; Telnet, Events, Syslog
  • Remote SSHv2 provides secure communication for configuration and maintenance
The Secure Router family

The Secure Router 4134, with its modular design, high throughput and reliable performance, is complemented by Avaya’s Secure Router 1000, 2330 and 3120 family of products. Deployed in combination with these other Secure Router models, the Secure Router 4134 can connect remote sites and also act as a central-site router for most enterprises.

An easy choice

Avaya Secure Router 4134 is a high-performance branch convergence solution that brings together feature-rich VoIP and feature-rich data into a common platform for simplified management, greater cost savings and a high quality of user experience.
