DrayTek 2016 Product Update

DrayTek have recently released new products in the past few months which include the LTE series routers, Vigor2832 series, Vigor2952 and Vigor3220 routers. Also released is the VigorAP 902 802.11ac Wi-Fi access point.  In this article we will give you a brief overview of these new products and compare them to the older existing product range.

These were covered in our webinar that can be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXx1JcUkVIo

LTE Series Routers

The LTE series routers were released at the beginning of this year and these include the Vigor2860L series and Vigor2925L series. These routers are identical to the Vigor2860 series and Vigor2925 series routers with the exception of an integrated 4G modem. This means that you only have to provide a SIM card for your ISP and insert it into the SIM card slot of the router. Some of the benefits of using LTE series routers are that no external 3G/4G USB modem is required so we do not have interoperability issues or disconnections due to an external modem failing or accidentally being removed.

LTE-card-slotCard slot will accept standard sized SIM cards from Major Internet Service Providers (ISP).

The routers also have two detachable LTE antennas fitted with a one metre extension lead and a magnetic base that allow the antennas to be placed in the best position for optimum 3G/4G reception.

Some of the applications for the LTE series routers can be for outdoor or sporting events where Internet access is required for a short period. Another application is for holiday cottages or for quick set up of new branch offices waiting for a DSL or Ethernet WAN connection. Another use is for caravans or mobile offices as well as many other possibilities.
