Quick Summary

Find out more about the new and unique Draytek Vigor 2620ln router with VDSL and LTE, Dual SIM 4g/LTE and Multi-Wan failover.

Introducing the newly available Draytek Vigor V2620LN-K Router. This is a high-performance router with VDSL and LTE modems in one box, 2 embedded SIM card slots for 4G/LTE failover and versatile Multi-WAN Failover for guaranteed ultra-resilient service. It is ideal for mission critical connectivity such as retail/EPOS or security monitoring applications where continuous uninterrupted connectivity is essential.

Integrated LTE 4G/3G Modem

The Vigor 2620Ln provides high speed mobile broadband connectivity for Internet access and VPN, with its built-in LTE 4G/3G modem. Download speeds of up to 150Mbps and Upload speeds of up to 50Mbps. It isn’t locked to any mobile network and is compatible with all major UK mobile networks, such as EE, Vodafone, O2 and Three, as well as any MVNOs on those networks. The Vigor 2620Ln can even be used as an LTE modem so that you can connect another firewall or router to the Vigor 2620Ln. With its LTE Bridge mode, the Vigor 2620Ln directly links whatever's connected to the mobile broadband, without any additional network translation (NAT). The two aerials on the Vigor 2620Ln for the LTE/cellular connectivity provide increased gain and signal diversity for improved reception and connection. The aerials can also be removed and replaced with specialist aerials (higher gain, outdoor) or an optional extension base used to position them most optimally.

Mission Critical Backups

The Vigor 2620Ln with a cellular service is ideal for mission critical connectivity such as retail/EPOS or security monitoring applications where continuous uninterrupted connectivity is essential. The flexibility of its interfaces means that your primary Internet connection can go through the Vigor 2620Ln, switching over to LTE when required, or the Vigor 2620Ln could provide the LTE connection to an existing multi-WAN router/firewall. For additional failover, the Vigor 2620Ln also has a built-in DSL interface, compatible with an ADSL or VDSL line, as well as the option for Ethernet WAN (switchable with LAN port P2). In all failover scenarios, the router continues to monitor the primary WAN feed and will switch back to that when restored. Alternatively DSL, or Ethernet can be primary with LTE/4G as failover.

Constant Connectivity with Dual-SIM LTE

Where connectivity is mission critical, a single cellular network can be a single point of failure, in the event of a mobile network outage. The Vigor 2620Ln has two SIM slots, so that in the event of one mobile network not providing Internet connectivity, the Vigor 2620Ln will switch to a secondary SIM and cellular network connection. It will monitor for Internet connectivity and latency; If the primary 4G SIM's network can't access a required location, or is too slow, it will switch over to the backup SIM to resume connectivity. Please note, for resilience in the event of mobile network outages, each SIM should be on a different cellular network (e.g. Vodafone and EE) and not 'virtual' networks which piggyback on the first (e.g. not Virgin Mobile and EE, as the former uses the latter's network).

SMS Text Message Control and Reporting

As a cellular network device, the Vigor 2620Ln takes advantage of text messaging (SMS) to allow remote interrogation and control. You can send simple text message commands to the router from your phone to have it reply with its status (IP addresses, data usage), or reboot the router. View SMS text messages received through the router's web interface in the SMS Inbox, for instance, checking for service messages indicating that you are low on credit. Or have the router forward received SMS messages to you via email, to ensure that you're regularly updated on the Vigor 2620Ln's status. Send and receive text messages through the router from your web browser, or via command line, for automation and integration.

VDSL2 and ADSL2+ Modem

Many broadband connections offered by ISPs are referred to as Fibre Broadband, although technically in many cases they're actually VDSL based connections which run over your phone line. The Vigor 2620Ln's built-in DSL interface (WAN1) is ideal for connecting this type of VDSL based connection, or to standard ADSL, ADSL2+ & Annex M lines.

Gigabit LAN Ports and VLANs

The Vigor 2620Ln has 2 x Gigabit LAN ports for wired links to Computers, Servers and Network Attached Storage. With 2 x LAN subnets, the Vigor 2620Ln can create 2 x separate network segments, for instance, an internal network with a separate network for Guests to use, completely independent from the private network, with its own filtering and rules applied. The router has full support for 802.1Q VLAN tagging, so that these subnets can be passed to other devices that support VLAN tags, such as the DrayTek VSG1080 8-port switch, for additional network ports. The Wireless LAN also links to these VLANs, making the same Guest & Private networks possible simply using different wireless SSIDs. Or connect up a DrayTek VigorAP wireless access point, such as the VAP903-K to do the same, spanning the router's own wireless and any connected wireless APs.

Wireless LAN connectivity

The Draytek Vigor 2620Ln router provides 802.11n wireless network connectivity, for up to 300Mbps throughput. Operating on 2.4GHz, it is backwards compatible with 802.11b/g clients. Up to 4 separate wireless networks (SSIDs) can be used, with individual security settings, Access Control lists (blacklist / whitelist), client isolation settings and VLAN configurations.

LTE Bridge Mode

The Vigor2620Ln's integrated LTE modem can be used in LTE Bridge Mode, which passes its connection directly through to a connected Router or other device over Ethernet. The ISP assigned IP address is relayed directly to the connected router; allowing direct access to any services that the router is hosting, along with its VPN services and Remote Management (where the ISP assigns a publicly routable IP address).

Robust and Comprehensive IPv4 / IPv6 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 safeguarded by various protection systems. The DrayTek object-based firewall allows even more setup flexibility than ever, enabling you to create combinations of Firewall rules and Content Filtering to suit a home or small office environment, applying Content Filtering to the whole network, only specified devices, or just the network that guests can connect to. The Vigor 2620Ln supports IPv6 - the successor to the current IPv4 addressing system that has been used since the Internet was first created. IPv6 can be provided directly by your ISP, but if your ISP does not (yet) support IPv6, the Vigor 2620Ln also supports IPv6 broker/tunnel services to provide IPv6 access using either TSPC or AICCU via 3rd party IPv6 providers over each of its interfaces, including 4G / LTE.

Quality of Service (QoS) and Bandwidth Control

Prioritise latency-sensitive applications on your network with Quality of Service. Use 4 separate queues to give priority to servers & PCs (IP address), services such as VoIP or DNS, or packet tagging used by IP phones with 802.1p and DSCP support. Auto Voice VLAN allows the router to automatically prioritise VoIP calls as they pass through the router without additional configuration. Control throughput with Bandwidth Limit, by setting speed limits for all clients individually, groups of IPs, or a shared bandwidth limit for a whole subnet, such as a Guest network.

A Great Router Option

As you can see the Vigor V2620LN-K router is a great option if you require a high-performance router with plenty of features for mission critical connectivity. Need it asap? Click on the link above to shop for next day delivery!
