Flexible WAN interface for load balancing, backup and bandwidth management
In addition to the ADSL interface, Vigor2830 series have additional Giga Ethernet WAN interface to connect to a second ADSL modem from another ISP or cable/VDSL2/Ethernet FTTx modem. Plus, users can let the USB port as the 3rd WAN interface via 3.5G mobile broadband. In the connection uptime, these three WAN interfaces can do load-balancing to facilitate bandwidth usage. Moreover, they can do failover backup during downtime. If users have different ISPs to provide internet connection to each WAN interface, they can be complete worry-free even one or two ISPs’ service are temporary outage. Besides, its 4-port Gigabit LAN switch can smooth large data transmission of bandwidth consumed applications for today business needs.
Vigor2830 series embedded with tag-based multi-subnet function can satisfy the security needs of distinguishing extranet and corporate intranet by Routine/NAT mode or multiple workgroups by different subnets. Besides, it can configure different subnets to each application, such as VoIP and IPTV to prevent interference.
USB port for 3.5G, FTP and printer server
Not only for 3.5G/4G mobile broadband, USB port also supports printer servers and allows the connection of a USB disk or hard drive for FTP file transfer through the Internet or local networks. The network administrator can set username/password and directory/file access privilege for individual users.
By adopting hardware-based VPN platform and hardware encryption of AES/DES/3DS, the router increases the performance of VPN greatly, and offers several protocols (such as IPSec/PPTP/L2TP) with up to 32 VPN tunnels. The object-based design used in SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) firewall allows users to set firewall policy with ease. Object-based firewall is flexible and allows your network be safe. DoS/DDoS prevention and URL/Web content filter strengthen the security outside and control inside. The enterprise-level CSM (Content Security Management) enables users to control and manage IM(Instant Messenger) and P2P (Peer-to-Peer) applications more efficiently. The CSM hence prevents inappropriate content from distracting employees and impeding productivity. Furthermore, the CSM can keep office networks threat-free and available.
Vigor2830 series support DrayTek’s SmartMonitor network activity management application (up to 30 users), which captures actual live data of activities in your managed network, such as the content of MSN entering to or out of your network. You can track specified files download/upload or view statistics on data type activities to realize what corporate related information have been released accidentally or on purpose.
Besides the encryption methods of WEP/WPA/WPA2 and MAC address control, it also offers wireless LAN isolation, Wireless VLAN and 802.1X authentication. WDS (Wireless Distribution System) can help users extend wireless coverage easily. Moreover, the wireless rate control can adjust the connection rate of each wireless station. The WMM (Wi-Fi multimedia) keeps the priority of voice, video and audio applications in a Wi-Fi network and lowers priority of other network traffic, which is not time-critical such as large file downloading.
