Air-Frame 100 provides standard Encryption
and Compression. When using compression Air-Frame provides the following performance characteristics:
||Compression can improve throughtput by a factor of 8 for text data. Text is almost any non-image
data e.g. raw text, word processed documents, files (including database
||Image data is almost always compressed. The
compression unit never creates compressed blocks that
are larger than the origonal. Little if any performance improvement will be obtained when handling heavy graphic content. However since the compression unit uses a hardware accelerator no overheads are incurred.
||The average compression over a wide selection
of customers typically results in a 1:1.8 - 1:2.2 increase in data
||The compression and encryption unit
uses a hardware accelerator. There is no degradation in performance when
using compression with Air-Frame 100 as is typically experienced with software based compression schemes.
