New DrayTek 4G LTE Routers – Vigor2862L Series

 

The Vigor2862L series router has most of the functions of the Vigor2862 series routers, plus a slot for a 4G LTE mobile broadband SIM card. The supported SIM cards include those from the major broadband service providers in Australia, Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, etc., as well as those in New Zealand, Spark, 2Degrees and Vodafone with speeds up to 150Mbps downstream and 50Mbps upstream.

In addition to the 4G LTE mobile broadband, the Vigor2862L series router has other WAN interfaces including 1 x VDSL2/ADSL2+, 1 x Gigabit Ethernet WAN and 1 x USB port for a 3G/4G mobile dongle. With the latest Wi-Fi WAN feature, you can configure the WAN2 of Vigor2862Lac to use the router Wi-Fi to connect to an external Wi-Fi hotspot.

The Vigor2862L series router can connect to the Internet through any of these interfaces, or with a combination of interfaces for Load Balance and Failover functions. Like the Vigor2862 series, Vigor2862L series support business features including an object-oriented SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) firewall, IPv6, 32 x VPN tunnels (including 16 x SSL VPN tunnels), tag-based VLAN, multiple subnets, etc.

For mission critical applications, the Vigor2862L series router can be used in High Availability mode to provide uninterrupted network connectivity, if there is a hardware failure occurrence in the primary router.

The Vigor2862Lac series router can be rack mounted using a 1RU rack mount bracket on a standard 19” rack or cabinet.

The LTE feature makes the Vigor2862L series router an ideal solution for applications such as:

  • Remote locations with no fixed line or NBN coverage.
  • Quick setup for new branches waiting for xDSL/Ethernet WAN (e.g. NBN).
  • Load Balancing or Failover backup for an existing primary Internet connection which can be any of ADSL/VDSL/Cable/Ethernet broadband.
  • Temporary installations such as disaster recovery and emergency situations, exhibitions, sporting events, etc., where Internet access is required for a short period.
  • Provision of Internet access on public transport such as coaches, buses, trains, freighters, etc.

Deployment Examples

(1) 4G LTE Router Applications

DrayTek 4G LTE routers, including the Vigor2862L series and Vigor2926L series, have all the features you need for a network in a small to medium size business. Each of these routers has an integrated LTE modem and accepts a SIM card from any of the major broadband service providers in Australia (Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, etc.), as well as those in New Zealand (Spark, 2Degrees and Vodafone). Speeds up to 150Mbps downstream and 50Mbps upstream are supported. What’s more, each of the wireless models, Vigor2862Lac and Vigor2926Lac, has a built-in 802.11ac wireless access point.

With the 4G LTE internet access and strong network features, the DrayTek 4G LTE routers support a wide range of application scenarios besides indoor offices, including internet access for mobile and PC devices on public transport, outdoor events and mobile offices.

Provision of Internet services for tourist bus or coach passengers

One ideal application of either the Vigor2862Lac or Vigor2926Lac routers is to provide internet access for passen-gers on public transport such as tourist bus or coach. For the transport company to provide free Wi-Fi access for its passengers, the wireless router can be placed in a suitable location on the bus to provide good Wi-Fi coverage throughout the bus. On larger busses or double decked busses, you can install a Wi-Fi access point such as the VigorAP 902 to extend the Wi-Fi coverage.

The passengers can be given unrestricted access to the internet, or the User Management feature in the router can be used to issue usernames and passwords for the passengers to prevent unauthorised users outside the bus from getting free internet access. In addition, users can be directed to the company web portal for information on the services. Other security measures that can be implemented are the use of the firewall and Content Security Man-agement (CSM) to protect the users from undesirable website contents (eg. for under aged passengers).

Provision of Internet services for outdoor events

A range of leisure and social activities such as sports events, weekend markets or special functions, require short term internet access. At most such outdoor locations, there is no fixed cabling to provide ADSL, VDSL or NBN services, and the only way to provide internet access is to use wireless broadband. Both the Vigor2862Lac and Vigor2926Lac routers can be set up quickly and provide internet access for these events.

The user management, web portal and firewall/CSM features can be used to enhance the operations. You can also use the Wi-Fi hotspot feature where users connect to your Wi-Fi network using the social login accounts such as Facebook or Google login, and monitor who is using your services.

Provision of Internet services for a mobile office

Mobile offices for businesses or projects may be at temporary sites without permanent internet access facilities. Both the Vigor2862L and Vigor2926L series routers can provide internet access for these mobile offices.

For your inter-office communication needs, you can set up VPN connections over the 3G/4G network to share network resources such as files and servers. To protect your network, you can configure the Object-oriented SPI Firewall, DoS defense, CSM (Content Security Management) and WCF (Web Content Filter) as required. Addition-ally, the VLAN feature allows up to 8 workgroups to be set up to add further security and to provide different levels of network access based on the workgroup.

 

(2) Technical Installation Requirements

Power Requirements when used in Mobile Applications

Vigro2862L and Vigor2926L routers require a 12–15V DC power supply. Therefore when used in vehicles such as busses or trucks which have a 24V supply, you will need to use a DC to DC converter to produce 12VDC regulated output. These converters are available from electronic suppliers. They plug into the cigarette lighter socket in your bus or truck and have an output socket that plugs into the router.

The DC to DC converter shown here is available from Jaycar Electronics

It is recommended to also use the DC to DC converter when the router is used in a motor vehicle to ensure a constant voltage to the router. Although a 13.8 volt car battery output is still within the router’s power supply requirements, the voltage may fluctuate to outside the router’s requirements.
