Vigor2860 Series is a firewall router which has built-in a VDSL/ADSL modem that
is compatible with variants of ADSL and VDSL. The Gigabit Ethernet WAN port can
be used with a cable-modem to connect to a second line for load balancing or
failover. There are also two USB ports can work with 3G/4G/LTE USB modems to add
wireless connectivity. Vigor2860 Series offers features including VPN, Firewall,
Content Filtering, and central management solution for Vigor access points and
switches, which makes it the perfect solution for a small-medium business.
Comprehensive DSL Connectivity
The VDSL/ADSL modem built-in Vigor2860 Series offers comprehensive DSL
connectivity which makes it compatible with various versions of xDSL,
including ADSL, ADSL2, ADSL2+, VDSL, and VDSL2. Vigor2860 Series also supports automatically detecting
your line type and will fallback to ADSL if VDSL is not available.
WAN Load Balancing & Failover
Except for the DSL interface, there is also a Gigabit Ethernet WAN port that
can be used for any types of connection and add an additional connectivity
to share the traffic load. 3G/4G/LTE
USB modem can also be attached to the USB ports of the router, and offer
wireless Internet connectivity in case the fixed lines are not available, In
fact, all of the WAN interfaces can be configured to operated in either Load
Balancing mode, which will be active all the time, or in Failover mode,
which will be active only when detecting connection loss or heavy load on
the primary connection.
On Vigor2860 Series, Load Balancing can be set in either IP-based mode,
which means the packets destined to different IP address will be distributed
across different WANs, or Session-based mode, which means the packets belong
to different sessions can take different paths, this allows a
multiple-session connection to be established across multiple WANs, and the
maximum data rate will be all the WAN's bandwidth combination. Policy-based
Load Balancing is also supported so that you may specify the path for some
To increase network accessibility more, Vigor2860 Series also supports High
Availability feature and allows one or more redundant Vigor2860 Series to be
added to the network and operated in standby mode.
Flexible LAN Management
The 6-port Gigabit Ethernet switch on the LAN side provides high-speed
connectivity for the servers and PCs on the local network, and the Virtual
LAN (VLAN) features allow you to separate the LAN clients into different
logical domains thus to increase the security and network efficiency.
Vigor2860 Series supports 802.1Q standard and can build a Tag-based VLAN
system with an 802.1Q-support switch, Port-based VLAN is also supported that
each LAN port can be configured as a member of different VLAN and be
isolated from each other without the use of VLAN tag. Moreover, up to 6 IP
subnet can be set up on Vigor2860 Series, so each VLAN can use different IP
v126.96.36.199, Vigor2860 Series has implemented an integrated solution to work as
a public Wi-Fi hotspot. While providing Internet access to the guest
users, the Hotspot Web Portal can be used to collect the users' information,
informing the terms and conditions, and presenting a landing page to them.
Firewall & Security
Vigor2860 Series supports Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) Firewall and
flexible filtering rules, it can accept or deny packets based on the
information in the packet header (such as source IP, destination IP,
protocol, and port number) or the packet's application. IP-based
restrictions can be set to filter certain HTTP traffic as well as various
application software and help you to prevent time and network resource
wasting on inappropriate network activities.
With an annual subscription to CYREN Web Content Filtering service, you may
also filter the websites by their categories, and set up restrictions to
block the whole categories of websites (such as Social Networking,
Gambling.. etc.) without the need to specify every site you would like to
block. The CYREN service is constantly updating the categorization, and a
free 30-day trial is included in each new router.
Vigor2860 Series supports both LAN-to-LAN VPN and Remote Dial-in VPN, up to
32 VPN tunnels can be set up simultaneously. All the industry standard
tunneling protocols are supported, including PPTP, L2TP, IPsec, and GRE, and
it's compatible with 3rd party VPN devices.
Vigor2860 Series also supports SSL VPN - a type of VPN based on the very
common encryption method which is used by all the HTTPS websites. While the
traditional VPN protocols might be filtered by the firewall and NAT of
public networks, SSL VPN will be passed as long as the HTTPS is allowed.
DrayTek also offers free official client App for Windows, iOS, and Android.
VPN Trunking is also supported by Vigor2860 Series, this allows you to
establish two VPN tunnels to the same remote site through different WAN
interfaces. The two trunking tunnels can be set up in load balancing or
Vigor2860 Series can act as a Central Management portal for all the Vigor
devices on the network, including VigorAPs, Vigor Switches, and even Vigor
Routers. With Central Management feature, device maintenance (such as
firmware upgrading, configuration backup and restore) and monitoring can all
be done from a single portal, which is the Web User Interface of Vigor2860
Vigor2860 can manage up to 20 VigorAPs on its LAN. Automatic Provisioning
can be triggered when a VigorAP newly join the network and this makes AP
deployment much faster. You may also get the client or traffic history of
all the AP from Vigor2860, and set up load balancing rules for the AP.
Central Switch Management allows you to manage up to 10 Vigor Switches from
Vigor2860, the status of every port can be directly viewed from the router.
Vigor2860 also supports VLAN configuration for the switches, setting that
matches the router's VLAN settings and the switch hierarchy is automatically
provided which makes the VLAN configuration much simplified.
