Router with Plenty of Vigor

07 January 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

With the increased coverage, faster speeds and more competitive offerings available from service providers, 4G/LTE is claimed to be a realistic practical option for many network requirements as an alternative to, or augmenting, fixed-line applications.

The Vigor 2860Ln includes a SIM slot in the back of the router allowing users to insert a 3G/4G standard SIM card with the service provider of their choice.
The router can utilise 3G/4G in a number of ways:

1. As a ‘pop up’ broadband facility where fixed lines are not available and 3G/4G provides the main connection. Common applications include construction sites, visiting teams, or permanent usage where fixed lines are slow, not available or less effective.

2. As a secondary failover connection in the event of the fixed (primary) line failing.

3. To balance traffic across a main line connection and 3G/4G for optimum speed using DrayTek’s load balancing features.
The product ships with two LTE antennae that can be attached directly to the router or positioned away from the device using its magnetic extension allowing users to fine tune the exact aerial position for optimum signal strength.
As well as LTE connectivity for data, the Vigor 2860Ln is said to make good use of SMS text messaging. Texts can be sent to the router to check its status or even reboot it with an appropriate command. The Vigor 2860Ln also supports WiFi and all of the business class features associated with the popular Vigor 2860 series routers.
