Vigor2925 Series is a firewall router that has two Gigabit Ethernet WAN ports for load balancing or failover. There are also two USB ports which can work with 3G/4G/LTE USB modems to add wireless Internet connectivity. Vigor2925 Series offer features including VPN, Firewall, Content Filtering, and Central Management Solution for Vigor access points and switches, which makes it the perfect solution for a small-medium business.
WAN Load Balancing & Failover
Vigor2925 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 two USB ports on the router to add a backup wireless connectivity. In fact, all of the WAN interfaces can be configured to operated 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 Vigor2925 Series, Load Balancing can be set in either IP-based mode, which means the packets destined to different IP address will be distributed across different WANs; or in Session-based mode, which means the packets belong to different sessions can take different paths, this allows a multiple-session connection to be established across multiple WANs, and the maximum data rate will be all the WAN's bandwidth combined. Policy-based Load Balancing is also supported so that you may specify the path for some certain packets.
Flexible LAN Management
The 5-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) features allow you to separate the LAN clients into different logical domains thus to increase the security and network efficiency.
Vigor2925 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 5 IP subnet can be set up on Vigor2925 Series, that allows each VLAN to use a different IP addressing space.
Vigor2925 Series also supports LAN DNS and Conditional DNS forwarding that allows you to control the domain name resolution for the LAN clients, also you can use the router as an internal name server and make the LAN servers to be accessed by a hostname which is easier to remember.
Firewall & Security
Vigor2925 Series supports Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) Firewall and flexible filtering rules, it can accept or deny packets based on the source, destination, port number, and its application. IP-based restrictions can be set to filter certain HTTP traffic as well as various application softwares, and prevent time and network resource wasting on inappropriate network activities.
With an annual subscription to CYREN Web Content Filtering service, you may also filter the websites by their categories, and set up restrictions to block the whole categories of websites (such as Social Networking, Gambling.. etc.) without the need to specify every site you would like to block. The CYREN service is constantly updating the categorization, and a free 30-day trial is included in every new router.
Vigor2925 Series supports both LAN-to-LAN VPN and Remote Dial-in VPN, up to 50 VPN tunnels can be set up simultaneously. All the industry standard tunneling protocols are supported, including PPTP, L2TP, IPsec, and GRE, and they are compatible with 3rd party VPN devices.
Vigor2925 Series also supports SSL VPN - a type of VPN based on the very common encryption method which is used by all the HTTPS websites. While the traditional VPN protocols might be filtered by the firewall and NAT of public networks, SSL VPN will be passed as long as the HTTPS is allowed. DrayTek also offers free official client App for Windows, iOS, and Android.
VPN Redundancy is also supported by Vigor2925 Series, this allows you establish two VPN tunnels to the same remote network but through different WAN interfaces to increase the reliability of VPN.
Vigor2925 Series can act as a Central Management portal for the other Vigor devices on the network, including VigorAP, Vigor Switch, and even Vigor Routers. With Central Management feature, device maintenance (such as firmware upgrading, configuration backup and restore) and monitoring can all be done from a single portal, which is the Web User Interface of Vigor2925 Series.
Vigor2925 Series can manage up to 20 VigorAP on its LAN and works as an AP controller. Automatic Provisioning can be triggered when a VigorAP newly join the network and this makes AP deployment much faster. You may also get the client or traffic history of all the AP from Vigor2925 Series, and set up load balancing rules for the APs.
Central Switch Management allows you to manage up to 10 Vigor Switches from Vigor2925 Series, the status of every port can be directly viewed from the router. Vigor2925 Series also supports VLAN configuration for the switches, setting that matches the router's VLAN settings and the switch hierarchy is automatically provided which makes the VLAN configuration easier.
