The Cisco RV042G Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Router delivers highly secure, high-performance, reliable Internet connectivity to your small business network. The Cisco RV042G provides two gigabit Ethernet WAN connections to ensure business continuity while improving performance, through load balancing. High-capacity virtual private network (VPN) capabilities let multiple offices and dozens of employees access the information they need from anywhere, just as securely as if they were working at your main office. Configuration and deployment is a snap using an intuitive, browser-based device manager and set-up wizards.
Integrated 4-port Gigabit managed switch for connecting network devices that allows faster data transfer for bandwidth-intensive applications.
Quality of service (QoS)
QoS prioritizes network traffic to keep critical network applications running at top performance for voice, video, and data applications.
Secure remote access
Support for IP Security (IPsec) and Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) VPN client connections and IPsec gateway-to-gateway VPN tunnels helps enable mall businesses to extend secure connectivity of their network to remote offices and users, using enterprise encryption and authentication technologies.
Secure guest access
Support for separate "virtual" networks helps enable small businesses to set up access rules to secure sensitive data and set up secure guest access.
Native support for IPv6 allows customers to take advantage of future networking applications and operating systems, without an equipment upgrade.
Easy configuration and management
Simplified configuration through an intuitive, browser-based device manager reduces setup time to just minutes.
Tested to work with other Cisco networking products on the network such as a switch, wireless access point, IP phone and voice systems.
