DrayTek enables fast gigabit connections
Vigor2132FVn Fibre Router supports multimedia streaming and VoIP
DrayTek recently launched the DrayTek Vigor2132FVn Fibre Router, developed in compliance with super-fast broadband architecture and customised for users already having Fibre to the building (FTTB) or Fibre to the home (FTTH).
Bandwidth-hungry multimedia streaming and VoIP functionalities are enabled on the Vigor2132FVn for upto-1000Mpbs (1 Gigabit) WAN throughput and enhanced bandwidth management. Users can apply the rules of Session Limit, Bandwidth Limit, Port Rate Control, QoS control list, Ports Priority to different traffic type for better efficiency.
In addition, the router supports the worldwide standard TR069 management and customised for triple play.
Triple play for home entertainment and SOHO
Entertainment applications running over the home network infrastructure and SOHO are growing while the broadband bandwidth is increasingly available within affordable budget with deployment of FTTx. The fibre WAN port of Vigor2132FVn optimises the throughput performance and flexibility for time-critical console gaming, multimedia streaming and P2P downloading as well as IP telephony. The four Gigabit ethernet (10/100/1000 LAN ports) auto-sensing ports facilitate home networking with width-intensive applications, DrayTek says. Through the combination of Fibre WAN and Gigabit LAN ports to optimize the bandwidth usage, the downstream data and voice packets for Triple play can be displayed in endpoint devices, such as HDTV, desktop/laptop or analogue/IP phone.
Wireless coverage & security
The Vigor2132FVn router offers not only the 802.11n standards for coverage, but also the time scheduling function to save on energy bills. For wireless security, Vigor2132FVn router is also efficient for wireless network management. For instance, its "Wireless LAN isolation" can easily isolate wireless network for friends or guests.
Then, the access rights of various wireless clients can be managed by “MAC address control" and deployed "WEP/WPA/WPA2" authentication. No need to remember passwords; simply pressing "WPS" button on the router will enable users to securely connect their devices to the router.
Bandwidth management with intelligent VoIP QoS
Small offices normally choose the affordable Internet plan instead of increasing the bandwidth over 100Mbps. Hence, how to reserve and prioritize bandwidth for the essential applications is critical to operations. The Vigor2132FVn has VoIP QoS to guarantee the priority for VoIP calls automatically once VoIP calls are detected. In addition to QoS, users can manage the bandwidth consumption of every employee based on the individual IP via Session Limit and Bandwidth Limit. The Smart Bandwidth Limit allows setting up of bandwidth reservation for PCs operating essential tasks. Other PCs can have session limitation to prevent inappropriate usage, for instance P2P downloads. Once they have exceeded the limitations, their speed rates will be downgraded to customised numbers. This guarantees proper usage for all subscribed bandwidth.
By making the most of their broadband line, calls are carried via Internet so users can save on telephone bills. Combining the internet telephony service from the Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP), the Vigor2132FVn charter VoIP calls to be made to any legacy phone numbers, including mobile and long distance numbers.
