When adding fibre to your premises, you’ll want the process to be as seamless as possible.
A smooth transition from DSL to fibre is only a click away when your equipment is both DSL and fibre ready.
This is especially important if you intend to keep your existing DSL line (or LTE) for load-balancing or as a failover.
Even though prospective fibre providers may offer free routers, these routers don’t generally support DSL or LTE.
Either way, an important question remains: will this freebie be sufficient for your requirements of a robust network and high performance broadband connection?
Once you decide on your internet connection, the next consideration may be your Wi-Fi requirements.
Mobile devices (phones, tablets, laptops and others) are requiring more bandwidth than ever, and this will only increase over time.
Without suitable equipment, such as 802.11ac access points, you may find that your mobile devices register significantly slow internet speeds, especially compared to wired devices on the same network.
Another critical factor to consider is security.
You need a router that features best-of-breed security, while it still remains user-friendly enough to configure yourself.
Enter the Vigor2860ac, a robust and dynamic multi-WAN router from DrayTek.
- 1 X V/ADSL port
- 1 X Ethernet WAN port
- 6 X Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports
- 2 X USB ports for LTE
Using any combination of the WAN (V/ADSL, Ethernet or USB) ports, you could be using the DSL connection one moment, and the fibre connection the next (or even both connections simultaneously), when using the Vigor2860ac’s load-balancing and failover features.
Featuring built-in 802.11ac wireless capability, the wired and Wi-Fi speeds exhibited by the Vigor2860ac far exceed the average DSL and fibre packages available locally, ensuring a future-proof network you can rely on.
In addition to all the features and specifications mentioned above, many will be thrilled with the following comprehensive first-class security features:
- Secure object-oriented firewall
- Web Content Filtering
- PPTP, IPSec, L2TP and SSL VPN tunnels
- Graphical VLAN configuration, and much more.
