The Vigor2860 Combo WAN provides multi WAN ports, ADSL2+/VDSL2/Gb Ethernet and 3G/4G LTE USB configurable WAN to allow simultaneous convergent tenant connections, especially for FTTx-MDU, mobile broadband operators involved in rural broadband deployments. Its fail over and load balance over different WANs with in-depth bandwidth management are ideal for broadband connectivity of SMBs. With the multi-WAN accesses, Vigor2860 supports bandwidth management functions such as Fail-over and Load Balancing, making them ideal solutions for reliable and flexible broadband connectivity for small to large enterprises.
The specifications cover many functions that are required by modern day businesses, including secure but easy to apply firewall, comprehensive VPN capability, Gigabit LAN ports, USB ports for 3G/4G mobile dongles, FTP servers and network printers, VLAN for flexible workgroup management, and much more.
You have the flexibility of migrating to VDSL2 when your ISP/Telco upgrades from current ADSL2+ technology. Besides, in case you move to a new location where VDSL2 is not available, your router can fall back to ADSL2+.
Fail-over and Load Balancing with a second Gigabit Ethernet WAN
The Gigabit Ethernet WAN port caters for any type of Internet access, including ADSL, Cable or Satellite broadband. You can then use both WAN 1 and WAN 2 for Fail-over, ensuring that you will always have an access to the Internet even if one of the WAN fails, or for Load Balancing so the 2 WANs share Internet traffic requirements of your organization.
For remote teleworkers and inter-office links, Vigor2860 series provide up to 32 simultaneous VPN tunnels (such as IPSec/PPTP/L2TP protocols) for secure data exchange and communication. With a dedicated VPN co-processor, the hardware encryption of AES/DES/3DES and hardware key hash of SHA-1/MD5 are seamlessly handled, thus maintaining maximum router performance. Teleworkers can be authenticated directly with your LDAP server if preferred. The Vigor2860 series are equipped with physical DSL port and Gigabit Ethernet port for WAN load-balancing and backup. The VPN trunking (VPN load-balancing and VPN backup) are hence implemented on Vigor2860 series. With VPN trunking, you can create multiple WAN connections to a remote site in order to increase bandwidth. The VPN trunking also can allow you to have failover (backup) of VPN route through a secondary WAN connection.
With SSL VPN, Vigor2860 series let teleworkers have convenient and simple remote access to central site VPN. The teleworkers do not need to install any VPN software manually. From regular web browser, you can establish VPN connection back to your main office even in a guest network or web cafe. The SSL technology is same as the encryption that you use for secure web sites such as your online bank. The SSL VPNs can be operated in either full tunnel mode or Proxy mode. After F/W 3.7.3, the Vigor2860 series allows up to 16 simultaneous incoming users.
With F/W 3.7.3, the embedded Central VPN Management (CVM) will let network administrator register up to 16 remote routers but run concurrent remote management over 8 remote routers.
APM provides the 3-step installation, plug-plug-press, and then wireless clients are able to enjoy surfing internet. Moreover, through the unified user interface of Draytek routers, the status of APs is clear at the first sight.
With the 6-port Gigabit switch on the LAN side provides extremely high speed connectivity for the highest speed local data transfer of any server or local PCs. The tagged VLANs (802.1q) can mark data with a VLAN identifier. This identifier can be carried through an onward Ethernet switch to specific ports. The specific VLAN clients can also pick up this identifier as it is just passed to the LAN. You can set the priorities for LAN-side QoS. You can assign each of VLANs to each of the different IP subnets that the router may also be operating, to provide even more isolation. The said functionality is tag-based Multi-subnet.
On the Wireless-equipped models (Vigor2860n/Vigor2860n plus/Vigor2860Vn plus) each of the wireless SSIDs can also be grouped within one of the VLANs.
DrayTek IPv6 solutions
We support Dual Stack (PPP, DHCPv6 Client, Static IPv6) and Tunnel Mode (TSPC, AICCU) to let your business operation successfully be migrated to the era of IPv6.
Multi-task USB functionalities
Through mobility, brought by cellular networks, you can connect 3.5G/4G USB mobile to 2.0 version USB port on Vigor2860 series. This can be a backup broadband connection if the primary fixed line drops. You can connect USB disk or hard-drive to USB port for memory storage and file sharing. The Vigor2860 series provide you with FTP access file uploading/downloading, which can be used from the local LAN or from anywhere on the Internet. The access can be using "username and password" or 'public'. Each of them can have their own directories and/or file access rights. The VDSL2/ADSL2+ interface, Gigabit Ethernet interface and USB mobile can be used either for WAN-backup or load balancing.
DrayTek Vigor2860 series inherited versatile firewall mechanism from previous Vigor series routers. 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.
By adoption of the world-leading Commtouch GlobalView Web Content Filtering, you can block whole categories of web sites (e.g. sports, online shopping), subject to an annual subscription to the Commtouch GlobalView WCF, which is timely updated with changed or new site categorizations. A free 30-day trial can be activated via activation wizard of WUI.
The "User Management" implemented on your router firmware can allow you to prevent any computer from accessing your Internet connection without a username or password. You can set scheduler or maximum usage time to your employees within office network. The user accounts can also be restricted by any other aspect of the firewall rule on a user-by-user basis.
Vigor2860 series support DrayTek’s SmartMonitor network traffic analyzer (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.
