Vigor 2926 Series Ethernet Router Firewall & Load-Balancer
The Vigor 2926 series is our dual-Ethernet WAN firewall for load-balancing or failover. It's also a fully featured firewall, VPN concentrator and content filtering device.
This latest router series includes support for professional features such as VLAN tagging, Gigabit Ethernet, built-in wireless LAN (Vigor 2926n or Vigor 2926ac). An alternative WAN connectivity is by a USB 3G/4G/LTE cellular modem which can be your primary WAN feed, backup or load-balanced with your fixed line.
A 5-port Gigabit Ethernet switch on the LAN side provides high speed connectivity for your server, other local PCs or for uplink to a larger Ethernet switch. Comprehensive security features include content filtering, web application controls and an object based firewall management system. Port 5 is switchable with 'WAN2' to use it as an Ethernet WAN port instead of a LAN port (requires f/w 3.8.8 or later, otherwise 5th Ethernet port is for WAN2 only.)
Robust & Comprehensive Firewall
Security is always taken seriously with DrayTek routers. The firewall protects against attacks including DoS (Denial of Service) attacks, IP-based attacks and access by unauthorised remote systems. Wireless, Ethernet and VPN are also protected by various protection systems. The DrayTek object-based firewall allows even more setup flexibility than ever, enabling you to create combinations of users, rules and restrictions to suit multi-departmental organisations. The Vigor 2926 also allows selective direction firewall rules of LAN to WAN, WAN to LAN or LAN to LAN/VPN.
Central Management with VigorACS
The Vigor 2926 series (along with most other DrayTek routers, Access points and switches) can be centrally managed by our VigorACS central management platform. This scalable solution provides visibility, control and reporting of your entire DrayTek product estate, ideal for dealers/SIs manageing customers' devices or any user who wants to know what's going on with their devices. VigorACS also provides features like automated/bulk firmware updates, VPN management and alarms for connectivity or other issues.
Web Content Filtering
The content control features of the Vigor 2926 series allows you to set restrictions on web site access, blocking download of certain file or data types, blocking specific web sites with whitelists or blacklists, blocking IM/P2P applications or other potentially harmful or wasteful content. Restrictions can be per user, per PC or universal and according to time schedules. Content filtering can also block sites using HTTPS/SSL where URLs are encrypted (and normal routers cannot block).
The Vigor 2926 has built-in user management which allows you to provide conditional internet access with Time and Data usage quotas to different users, based on their own unique login (stored in the router, or on an external Radius server).
Rack Mounting Kit
The RM1 Rackmount Bracket enables you to fit any Vigor 2926 series router into a standard 19" rack or cabinet. The bracket takes up one rack slot (1U) and includes a cable retainer at the back to keep the power cord captive. The front mounted sockets of the router remain fully accessible. For wireless models, we then recommend extension aerials (or aerial extensions).
USB Port for Ad-Hoc Storage / Logging
The Vigor 2926's USB port can also be used to add storage memory to the unit in the form of a USB memory key (as shown right). The Vigor 2926 then provides FTP access file uploading/downloading which can be from the local LAN or from anywhere on the Internet - ideal for a simple to deploy file depository. If you do have a USB memory key connected, you can also have the router save it's system logs (syslog) to that memory instead of to a connecting computer; useful for technical personnel (SysAdmins).
Vigor 2926 LTE Series has built-in an LTE modem that accepts the standard size SIM cards. With just a SIM card, you may add a wireless Internet connectivity to share the traffic load or backup the primary link. The LTE WAN supports download speed up to 150 Mbps, upload speed up to 50 Mbps, and it works with worldwide cellular networks including 4G and 3G, and can automatically fall back to 3G when 4G is not available. While using the data services of the SIM cards, the SMS service is also supported. Receiving and sending SMS messages can be done from the router's web user interface, you may also configure the router to send notifications via SMS, moreover, commands can be sent to the router via SMS to initiate a router reboot or status report.
WAN load balancing & failover
Vigor 2926 LTE Series has two Gigabit Ethernet WAN ports that can be used for any types of connection, 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. All of the WAN interfaces can be configured to operate 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 Vigor 2926 Series, Load Balancing can be either IP-based mode, which will distribute the packets destined to different IP address across different WANs, or Session-based mode, which allows the packets of different sessions to take different paths, which means a multiple-session connection can be established across multiple WANs, and use multiple WAN's bandwidth at the same time. Policy-based Load Balancing is also supported so that you may specify the path for certain packets.
Flexible LAN management
The 4-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) feature allows you to separate the LAN clients into different logical domains thus to increase the security and network efficiency. Vigor 2926 LTE 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 Vigor 2926 LTE Series, so each VLAN can use different IP addressing space. Vigor 2926 LTE Series has implemented an integrated solution to work as a public Wi-Fi hotspot. While providing Internet access to the guests, the hotspot web portal can be used to collect the guests' information, informing the terms and conditions, and presenting a landing page to them.
Firewall & security
Vigor 2926 LTE 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.
