The DrayTek Vigor 2860ac AC1600 Triple-WAN WiFi ADSL2+ and Fibre Broadband Router is a variant of the popular DrayTek Vigor 2860 series with the addition of a super fast 802.11ac WiFi. It includes all the same features as the 2060n such as VLAN tagging, Gigabit Ethernet, 3G failover and a Six (6) port Gigabit switch and WLAN AP management feature for deployment of multiple access points such as the DrayTek Vigor AP-900.

WiFi 802.11ac Dual-Band (1300Mbps + 300Mbps)
The DrayTek Vigor 2860ac features the latest 802.11ac WiFi LAN specification for speeds up to 1300Mbps (5GHz) and 300Mbps (2,4GHz). This also includes a WiFi co-processor that provides data processing offload for increased performance, particularly in multi-user environments. It also enables higher performance WDS - Up to 500Mb/s which is particularly useful if forming point-to-point WiFi bridges. It provides several independent levels of security including encryption (up to WPA2), authentication (802.11x) and methods such as MAC address locking and DHCP fixing to restrict access to authorised users only. The Web interface lets you see how many and which clients are currently connected as well as their current bandwidth usage. An 'instant' block lets you disconnect a WiFi user temporarily in case of query. The WiFi VLAN facility allows you to isolate WiFi clients from each other or from the 'wired' LAN.

This DrayTek Vigor 2860ac also allows guest access with password protection so visitors can use your WiFi access, but only with a preset password which you set for them. When the user connects to your WiFi LAN, they are first presented with your login screen before any Internet access is permitted. This is in addition to any encryption system you have running.

The Multiple SSID features enables you to have up to four distinct or common virtual WiFi access points. For example, you could have one for company usage, with access to your company LAN and another for public access which allows internet surfing only. Setting up WiFi security is made easier thanks to the WPS feature (WiFi protected setup) whereby your client PC can get it's security keys by pressing a button on the front of the router.

Robust and Comprehensive 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. WiFi, Ethernet and VPN are also protected by various protection systems. The latest ('Version 3') DrayTek object-based firewall allows even more setup flexibility than ever, enabling you to create combinations of users, rules and restrictions to suit multi-departmental organisations. The DrayTek Vigor 2860ac now also allows selective direction firewall rules of LAN to WAN, WAN to LAN or LAN to VPN. In addition, QoS (Quality of Service Assurance) can now be selectively applied to specific users.

IPv6 - Next Generation Internet Routing
The DrayTek Vigor 2860ac supports IPv6 - the successor to the current IPv4 addressing system that has been used since the Internet was first created. IPv4 address space is full up and IPv6 allows for much more efficient routing and a larger address space. IPv6 is supported both from your own ISP, but if your ISP does not (yet) support IPv6, the DrayTek Vigor 2860ac also supports IPv6 broker/tunnel services to provide IPv6 accss using either TSPC or AICCU via 3rd party IPv6 providers.

Web Content Filtering
The content control features of the DrayTek Vigor 2860ac allow you to set restrictions on web site, blocking download of certain file or data types, blocking specific web sites with whitelists or blacklists, blocking IM/P2P applications or other potentially harmful or wasteful content. Restrictions can be per user, per PC or univeral. Using DrayTek's GlobalView service, you can block whole categories of web sites (e.g. gambling, adult sites etc.), subject to an annual subscription to the Globalview service, which is continuously updated with new or changed site categorisations or sites which have become compromised (such as infected with Malware). A free 30-day trial is included with your new router.

VPN - Linking Remote Offices, HQ, Teleworkers And Mobile Staff
A feature central to DrayTek routers is VPN (Virtual Private Networking), which enables you to link two remote offices, branch offices back to HQ or home-based/mobile teleworkers back to your office. Once connected, they have access to your office/remote resources through a secure encrypted tunnel allowing remote desktop, file sharing and seamless access to other resources and devices.

SSL VPN and VPN Trunking
The DrayTek Vigor 2860ac supports VPN trunking; this allows you to create tunnels down multiple WAN connections to a remote site in order to increase bandwidth. VPN trunking also provides failover (backup) of your VPN route down a secondary WAN connection. The DrayTek Vigor 2860ac also supports SSL VPN. These are encrypted tunnels linking your teleworker back to your main office but they are 'clientless' in that your O/S does not need to generate the tunnel and you do not need to install any VPN software manually.

Triple-WAN Load Balancing and Backup
As well as a primary ADSL/VDSL interface, the DrayTek Vigor 2860ac features two other WAN connections. WAN2 is Ethernet (Gigabit, switchable with LAN4) and WAN3 is a USB port for connection of a 3G/4G LTE modem. WAN2 (Ethernet) can connect to a second ADSL modem or VDSL modem such as the DrayTek Vigor 130, a cable modem or any other Ethernet-based Internet feed. The multiple WAN interfaces can be used either for WAN-Backup or load balancing.

802.1q Tagged, WiFi and Port Based VLAN
The DrayTek Vigor 2860ac features a hugely flexible VLAN system. In its simplest form, each of the six Gigabit LAN ports can be isolated from each other, for example to feed six different companies or departments but keeping their local traffic completely separated. For more sophisticated scenarios, the DrayTek Vigor 2860ac includes tagged VLANs (802.1q) whereby data is marked with a VLAN identifier. This identifier can be read by an onward Ethernet switch and directed to specific ports or just passed to the LAN for specific VLAN clients to pick up; priorities can also be applied for LAN-side QoS. The VLANs can each be tied into each of the different IP subnets that the router may also be operating, to provide even more isolation.

Network Attached Storage (NAS)
The DrayTek Vigor 2860ac's USB port can also be used to add storage memory to the unit in the form of a USB memory key or for higher capacity a USB hard drive (normally requires its own power). The DrayTek Vigor 2860ac then provides FTP access file uploading/downloading which can be from the local LAN or from anywhere on the Internet - ideal for a simple to deploy file depository.
