The LANCOM 831A is the right choice for small businesses looking to set
up a broadband Internet connection with professional network functions.
Thanks to the integrated multimode ADSL2+ modem, the router connects
directly to a standard DSL connection without any intermediate hardware.
Compatibility with the annex variants A, B, J and M guarantees reliable
operation with various types of connection, and in particular with the new
generation of all-IP connections. The four ports of the integrated Gigabit
Ethernet switch ensure maximum performance and are also energy-efficient as
per IEEE 802.3az: If no data is transmitted over an interface, its power
consumption shuts down automatically.
The LANCOM 831A has a comprehensive range of
security features. The stateful-inspection firewall with intrusion
prevention and Denial-of-Service protection is an effective barrier to
attacks from the Internet. The user-friendly interface makes it easy to set
up the object-oriented firewall. Optionally available, the Content Filter
provides effective protection for up to 25 users while they surf the World
Wide Web. Internet connectivity can be reliably assured, for example with a
cellular backup via USB or the integrated ISDN interface, thus assuring
smooth, round-the-clock operations. Flexible bandwidth management guarantees
the availability of all applications in the local area network as these can
be prioritized with a comprehensive range of Quality-of-Service features.
