DrayTek Vigor 2900VG Broadband Router provides business class functionality with 54Mbps wireless connectivity at an exceptionally affordable price.
Voice Over IP
VoIP is one of the hottest communications technologies being adapted for transmission over broadband technologies. VoIP is the transmission of telephone calls over a data network like one of the many networks that make up the Internet.
The DrayTek 2900VG allows a simple, cost-effective solution to take advantage of this exicting technology.
The DrayTek Vigor 2900VG includes full packet-level firewall facilities, not just the inherrent 'NAT' security and port-blocking of other routers. This includes stateful packet inspection. The DrayTek 2900 also employs keep-state packet recording; put simply, this means that when a packet is sent out, a reciprocal record is kept to allow a packet coming back in the opposite direction, but a default 'deny' policy means that any packet arriving which appears unsolicited won't get through. The DrayTek Vigor 2900 series also features automatic protection from Dos / DDos (Denial of Service / Distributed Denial of Service) attacks and IP anti-spoofing. User-definable filters also allow you to add additional protection to your connection. For added confidence, potential or foiled attacks are logged and can be reported via the router's syslog facility or emailed to you by the router.
Enhanced Wireless Security
The Wireless interface on the Draytek Vigor 2900VG enables wireless connection of PCs and supports the new 802.11g high-speed wireless protocol, which is up to 6 times faster than the previous 802.11b protocol, providing a total wireless bandwidth of up to 54Mb/s. Twin extra-gain aerials provide an additional dB gain, ensuring maximum coverage range and signal diversity. The DrayTek Vigor 2900VG also has a built-in 4-port Ethernet switch (expandable) for wired devices so that you can connect wired 10/100BaseT PCs too.
Virtual LAN (VLAN) & Bandwidth Throttling
The DrayTek Vigor 2900VGs VLAN facility enables you to segment each of the router's four Ethernet ports, so that each is a separate virtual LAN. You can create VLAN groups which include or exclude any of the ports so that groups, departments and companies can communicate with each other, or not. For example, two companies could share the same broadband feed, without having access to each other's networks. The DrayTek Vigor 2900VG's allow each of the four 10/100BaseT Ethernet ports to be limited to a maximum throughput (RX and RX selectable). e.g. Port 1 could be set to provide max 256Kb/s to prevent individual users, or LAN branches from consuming too much of your broadband bandwidth.
High Performance VPN Capabilites
The DrayTek Vigor 2900VG can act as a VPN concentrator (endpoint) for up to 32 remote sites - i.e. running 32 simultanous tunnels to remote locations; either single teleworkers or remote networks / offices. The VPNs use induststry standard protocols including IPSec, PPTP and with high level encryption including 3DES, AES and MPPE. Cross compatibility with with common Microsoft Windows and MacOS VPN software clients is supported as well as compatibility with many other 3rd party VPN vendor's products, including Cisco Pix, Nokia, Sonicwall, Checkpoint, ZyWall and Watchguard.
Built-in USB Print Server
The DrayTek Vigor 2900VG also features a built-in print server. You can connect a printer to the DrayTek Vigor 2900VG's USB printer port and then any PC connected to the DrayTek Vigor 2900VG will be able to print to it. (Client PC requires Win98/ME/2000 or XP). Compatible with any printer with a USB port interface. This port can also be be used for a WebCam connection.
