Flexible VPN Security Solution with Fiber Capability
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-300F and VR-300FP VPN Security Routers that carry several main categories across your network security deployments: copper/fiber WAN interface, 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.
Flexible WAN interface Enables Extension of Network Deployment
The VR-300F and VR-300FP provide both copper and fiber connectors for WAN interface. With one SFP slot, it supports fiber extension for FTTX application. It allows the administrator to flexibly choose the suitable SFP transceiver according to the transmission distance required to extend the network efficiently. The distance can be extended from 550 meters to 2 kilometers (multi-mode fiber) and 10/20/30/40/50/60/70/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications to uplink to backbone switch and monitoring center in long distance.
Intelligent SFP Diagnosis Mechanism
The VR-300F and VR-300FP support SFP-DDM (digital diagnostic monitor) function that greatly helps network administrator to easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Powered Devices Management
The VR-300FP 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-300FP directly.
Under the trend of energy savings worldwide and contributing to environmental protection, the VR-300FP 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-300FP 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-300FP 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-300F and VR-300FP provide 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-300F and VR-300FP can offer a secure Wi-Fi network with easy installation for your business.
Centralized Remote Control of Managed APs*
The VR-300F and VR-300FP 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-300F and VR-300FP 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-300F and VR-300FP provide complete data security and privacy for accessing and exchanging the 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-300FP makes the connection secure, more flexible, and more capable.
Excellent Ability in Threat Defense
The VR-300F and VR-300FP 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-300F and VR-300FP are equipped with HTTPS web and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in web-based management interface, the VR-300F and VR-300FP offer an easy-to-use, platform independent management and configuration facility. The VR-300F and VR-300FP support SNMP and it can be managed via any management software based on the standard SNMP protocol.
