The Vigor 2952 is a router/firewall with two Gigabit Ethernet WAN ports, providing load balancing or failover for up to two WAN connections. WAN1 can be selected as either RJ-45 or SFP format (SFP is for fibre modules). There are four LAN RJ-45 ports (Gigabit). The Vigor 2952 runs DrayTek's own DrayOS operating system, providing familiarity for users of other existing DrayTek products.
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 unauthorized 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 organizations. The Vigor 2952 also allows selective direction firewall rules of LAN to WAN, WAN to LAN or LAN to VPN. In addition, QoS (Quality of Service Assurance) can be selectively applied to specific users.
For mission-critical applications, a pair of Vigor 2952's can be set up in high-availability mode - also known as hardware failover. This removes the Vigor 2952 as a single point of failure if it ceases operation or is damaged - the standby router takes over operations.
Web content filtering
The content control features of the Vigor 2952 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.
User management / authentication
The Vigor 2952 has built-in user management which allows you to provide conditional Internet access to different users based on their own unique login and including the restrictions of web content filtering too.
3G / 4G cellular data features
The Vigor 2952's USB port can host a compatible 3G / 4G / LTE USB modem for access to the cellular network for full Internet access as your primary or failover WAN connectivity.
WAN load balancing and backup
The Vigor 2952's two WAN interfaces can be used either for WAN-Backup or load balancing. Each of the 2 WAN Ethernet ports can be connected to any Ethernet-based Internet connection, such as a DSL modem, cable modem, leased line etc. One port can use an SFP module instead of Ethernet.
