Draytek 3900 Enterprise Firewall/Router
The Vigor3900 Central site VPN gateway is an enterprise-level VPN concentrator providing security and cost savings benefits for business through flexible, reliable, and high-performance LAN-to-LAN and remote-access solutions. Vigor3900 not only offers hundreds of VPN tunnels compatible with multiple VPN protocols, such as PPTP/L2TP/IPsec/L2TP over IPSec to satisfy LAN-to-LAN and remote secure communication needs, but also provide SSL VPN* connectivity to better facilitate remote users to access corporate database. With Gigabit Ethernet LAN/WAN and active fiber interfaces, Vigor3900 offers unprecedented data transmission speed for mission-critical applications and do load-balancing for WAN and VPN failover to enhance performance, redundancy and reliability of business operation.
Enterprise-level central site VPN gateway
By using VPNs to establish secure, end-to-end private network connections over a public networking infrastructure, business can reduce considerable communications/travels expenses and still remain seamless connectivity between central and remote sites including mobile workers, telecommuters, and extranet users by accessing corporate database any time in anywhere.
Vigor3900 with a dedicated VPN co-processor, the hardware encryption of AES/DES/3DES and hardware key hash of SHA-1/MD5 are seamlessly handled, thus maintaining maximum router performance. For remote sites and inter-office links, the Vigor3900 supports up to 500 simultaneous VPN tunnels (such as IPsec/PPTP/L2TP protocols). The site-to-site VPN throughput can reach up-to 800Mbps (IPsec). The SSL VPN* by using X.509 certificate-based authentication is also available for tele-worker applications.
Without the necessity of installing VPN client on individual PC, the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) virtual private network (VPN) facility lets remote workers connect to the office network at any time. SSL is supported by standard web browsers such as FireFox and IE. For users of small offices and tele-workers who need to access enterprises’ internal applications, file server and file sharing.
There are up to 20 simultaneous tunnels on Vigor3900 for host-to-LAN (remote dial-in) application.
With F/W 1.0.7, the embedded Central VPN Management (CVM) will let network administrator register up to 16 remote routers and also run concurrent remote management over 16 remote routers.
In short, Vigor3900 gives a highly secure but flexible network for the multi-site business operation and retain corporate HQ’s ultimate control of the system.
High performance gigabit and fiber interfaces
Vigor3900 with four Gigabit Ethernet-ports and one SFP active fiber port as WAN interfaces allows corporation to subscribe internet connection service from up-to five different ISPs. These five WAN interfaces can do load-balancing to facilitate bandwidth usage in the connection uptime and failover backup during downtime to prevent temporary service outage from subscribed ISP(s). In addition, Vigor3900 with two Gigabit Ethernet-ports and one SFP active fiber port as LAN interfaces facilitates large data and business applications exchange to reach corporate intranet client ends. The Vigor3900 also supports Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) to calculate the route metric (Up-to Version 2).
Vigor3900 is also the future proof procurement as considering tech refresh of your central site or major regional branches. From infrastructure viewpoint, Vigor3900 is not only working with current IPv4 network but also compliant with future IPv6 migration. From service viewpoint, corporation begins to turn to virtualization and cloud computing services when the speed of WAN connection is rising to reduce overhead of IT and enhance productivity.
Stable inline reliability
Vigor3900 offers High Availability by Common Address Redundancy Protocol (CARP) to prevent single point of failure. The network administrator can configure another Vigor3900 as the passive standby backup device in case of failure of main Vigor3900. Moreover, administrator can enable reciprocal backup functionality for multiple active Vigor3900 that includes load balancing configuration and user definable backup priorities.
The advance Load Balance and Failover features of Vigor3900 can balance traffic from your LAN to multiple internet connections (WANs). The easy-to-use web user interface allows administrator to configure comprehensive network settings in minutes to optimize bandwidth usage and establish a reliable network based on actual operation needs. Traffics from the LAN are shared out on a round robin basis across the available WANs. Vigor3900 can monitor each WAN connection, using an IP address you provide, and if Vigor3900 monitors fails, a failover configuration will take place and typically just feeds all traffic down the other connection(s). Especially, the pooling configuration concept allows administrator to select desire WAN ports as load-balancing pools with weight setting capability / failover pools and modify policy if necessary and then configure each WAN port with detail network information that helps administrator build a substantial network to facilitate daily operation with versatility, scalability and reliability.
Highly secure and efficient corporate application management
Vigor3900 with Certificate Management function including Root CA, Trusted CA and Local CA is a comprehensive Certificate Authority (CA) server. To prevent eavesdropping, Vigor3900 enforces advance encrypted mechanism implemented a pair of public and private keys as exchanging certificate between server and client instead of using pre-shared key which might be stolen by hackers during interchange. Vigor3900 offers flexible methods to grant certificate for any trusted applicant who may use it for the VPN connection. Administrator of Vigor3900 can choose to accept/sign client’s CA certificate or generate a signed CA certificate through building root CA function for client’s VPN connection needs in case some clients do not have CA certificate in hand. As a result, Certificate Management by Vigor3900 offers secure and flexible ways for business certification process.
The DoS/DDoS prevention and URL/Web content filter strengthen the security outside and inside the network. They can block the HTTPS web access well with the integration of the object-based firewall setting. The enterprise-level CSM (Content Security Management) enables users to control and manage IM (Instant Messenger) and P2P (Peer-to-Peer) applications more efficiently. The CSM hence prevents inappropriate content from distracting employees and impeding productivity. Furthermore, the CSM can keep office networks threat-free and available. The Vigor3900 supports authentication by the PPPoE server with wire-speed Internet Access capability to LAN users (e.g. employees). This feature saves a lot of time compared with IP-bind-MAC method to benefits the network administrators.
Quality of Service (QoS) function of Vigor3900 implemented Ingress and Egress Filter Rules monitoring LAN/WAN incoming and outgoing data packets. These rules can prevent unwanted data packets from outside to access corporate network as well as distribute corporate data to non-recognizable destinations. The subscribed bandwidth wouldn’t be wasted on useless data packet exchange activities and may reduce the risk of damage corporate network or confidential information leakage. Moreover, Vigor3900 has eight classes of priority level settings which allow administrator to better prioritize the importance of bandwidth usage in detail. Administrator can use bandwidth limitation to grant different bandwidth to different workgroups based on their main job function which can be viewed as macro view of bandwidth allocation. In the micro view, administrator can define different sessions through session limitation to individual client device based on IP address in each workgroup. For instance, Sales Dept. in total might need the larger bandwidth than others for better serving customers. However, sales assistants could be granted minimum sessions because they don’t need to interact with customers directly to facilitate their jobs.
Easy-to-use centralized management
Vigor3900 embedded with an easy-to-use user interface shorten administrator’s learning curve to adopt its management mechanism to control CO side network and hundreds VPN connections of remote sites. By the easy-to-use user interface, business doesn’t need to allocate the highly experienced technician as the administrator and can save training cost/time for recruiting new hire. Besides, Vigor3900 compliant with TR-069 protocol can be managed by VigorACS SI centralized management system that makes you have the choice to outsource IT management to System Integrator who can provide both Internet access service (last mile license from ISP/Telco) and device remote management/diagnostic services to stay focused on business essentials.
