Powerful Wireless and VPN Security Solution
The innovation of the Internet has created tremendous worldwide opportunities for e-business and information sharing. It has become essential for businesses to focus more on network security issues. The demand for information security and wireless connetion has become the primary concern for the enterprises. To fulfill this demand, PLANET has launched the all-in-one VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 Wireless VPN Security Routers that carry several main categories across your network security deployments: 802.11ac, cybersecurity, SPI firewall security protection, policy auditing (content filtering, VPN tunnel and MAC/IP filtering), AP controller, captive portal, RADIUS and easy management (Setup Wizard, DHCP Server and Dashboard). Furthermore, its Dual-WAN Failover, Outbound Load Balance and High-Availability features can improve the network efficiency while the web-based interface provides friendly and consistent user experience.
Wireless 11ac Bring Excellent Data Link Speed
The VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 are designed with high power amplifier and 4 highly-sensitive antennas which provide stronger signal and excellent coverage even in the wide-ranging or bad environment. With adjustable transmit power option, the administrator can flexibly reduce or increase the output power for various environments, thus reducing interference to achieve maximum performance. To provide extremely high-speed user experience, the VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 adopt IEEE 802.11ac technology to extend the 802.11n 40MHz channel binding to 80MHz and the implementation of 256-QAM modulation where higher transmitting/receiving rates go up to 867Mbps in 5GHz less interference frequency band. In addition, the VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 are equipped with Gigabit LAN port to eliminate the restriction of 100Mbps Fast Ethernet wired connection to let users fully enjoy the high speed provided by wireless. The IEEE 802.11ac also optimizes MU-MIMO (Multi-User MIMO) mechanism to serve multiple devices simultaneously.
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Powered Devices Management
The VR-300PW5 is capable of having a maximum of up to 120 watts of power output and can deliver up to 36W for each port. It also features the following special PoE management functions:
PoE Usage Monitoring
With PoE usage monitoring, it can show the PoE loading of each port, total PoE power usage and system status, such as overload, low voltage, over voltage and high temperature. User can obtain detailed information about the real-time PoE working condition of the VR-300PW5 directly.
Under the trend of energy saving worldwide and contributing to environmental protection, the VR-300PW5 can effectively control the power supply besides its capability of giving high watts power. The “PoE schedule” function helps you to enable or disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals and it is a powerful function to help SMBs or enterprises save power and budget. It also increases security by powering off PDs that should not be in use during non-business hours.
Scheduled Power Recycling
The VR-300PW5 allows each of the connected PoE IP cameras or PoE wireless access points to reboot at a specific time each week. Therefore, it will reduce the chance of IP camera or AP crash resulting from buffer overflow.
PD Alive Check
The VR-300PW5 can be configured to monitor connected PD status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and responding, the VR-300P will resume the PoE port power and bring the PD back to work. It will greatly enhance the network reliability through the PoE port resetting the PD’s power source and reducing administrator management burden.
Wi-Fi Deployments and Authentication with Simplified Management
The VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 also provides a built-in AP Controller, Captive Portal, RADIUS and a DHCP server to facilitate small and medium businesses to deploy secure employee and guest access services without any additional server. The VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 can offer a secure Wi-Fi network with easy installation for your business.
Centralized Remote Control of Managed APs*
The VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 provide centralized management of PLANET Smart AP series via a user-friendly Web GUI. It's easy to configure AP for the wireless SSID, radio band and security settings. With a four-step configuration process, different purposes of wireless profiles can be simultaneously delivered to multiple APs or AP groups to minimize deployment time, effort and cost.
For example, to configure multiple Smart APs of the same model, the VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 allow clustering them to a managed group for unified management. According to requirements, wireless APs can be flexibly expanded or removed from a wireless AP group at any time. The AP cluster benefits bulk provision and bulk firmware upgrade through single entry point instead of having to configure settings in each of them separately.
Ideal High-Availability VPN Security Router Solution for SMBs
The VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 provide complete data security and privacy for accessing and exchanging most sensitive data, built-in IPSec VPN function with DES/3DES/AES encryption and MD5/SHA-1/SHA-256/SHA-384/SHA-512 authentication, and GRE, SSL, PPTP and L2TP server mechanism. The full VPN capability in the VR-300PW5 makes the connection secure, more flexible, and more capable.
Excellent Ability in Threat Defense
The VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 are built-in SPI (stateful packet inspection) firewall and DoS/DDoS attack mitigation functions provide high efficiency and extensive protection for your network. Thus, virtual server and DMZ functions can let you set up servers in the Intranet and still provide services to the Internet users.
Cybersecurity Network Solution to Minimize Security Risks
The cybersecurity feature included to protect the switch management in a mission-critical network virtually needs no effort and cost to install. For efficient management, the VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 are equipped with HTTPS web and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in web-based management interface, the VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 offer an easy-to-use, platform independent management and configuration facility. The VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 support SNMP and it can be managed via any management software based on the standard SNMP protocol.
Improving Network Efficiency
It is applicable to the small-scale sector (from 60 to 100 people), using a 13-inch desktop design, with five Gigabit ports (WAN/LAN). It provides higher performance with all Gigabit Ethernet interfaces which offer faster speeds for your network applications. The Gigabit user-defined interfaces flexibly fulfill the network requirement nowadays, and the High-Availability and Dual-WAN interfaces enable the VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 to support outbound load balancing and WAN fail-over features.
Furthermore, the VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 can connect dual IPv4/v6 WANs with up to two different ISPs and supports many popular security features including Content Filtering to block specific URL feature that can automatically resolve the IP address corresponding to all. Users’ network can be easily managed by just typing the URL of the websites like Facebook, YouTube and Yahoo.
The VR-300W5 and VR-300PW5 both have link redundancy, MAC/IP filtering, outbound load balancing, QoS and many more functions to make the entire network system better.
