LANCOM vRouter

The best router may not be a normal router

The LANCOM vRouter is a virtual VPN router for flexible WAN connections in classic networks and cloud scenarios. Based on the longstanding, tried-and-trusted operating system LCOS (LANCOM Operating System), it works just like a hardware router to offer the same security and the same comprehensive range of functions. Designed for operations in a virtualized environment based on a hypervisor as VMware, it can be deployed and monitored with both the LANCOM Management Cloud and LANtools.

Be it as a router for medium-scale scenarios or as a central-site VPN gateway, the LANCOM vRouter is the right basis for modern networks. The runtime-based license model provides you maximum flexibility with regard to speed and network dimension for a perfect fit for your individual infrastructure.

Software-based router for virtualized environments

The LANCOM vRouter is a software-based router for operation in virtualized environments based ona hypervisor like VMware ESXi. With its comprehensive range of functions and the numerous security features based on the operating system LCOS, it offers the best basis for modern infrastructures. Be it as a virtual VPN router or as a central-site VPN gateway, it is ideally suited for systems vendors, service providers, and for operation by medium-sized and large companies.

Classic infrastructure

Classic style scenario with a gateway

In classical infrastructures, the headquarters and the branch offices are securely interconnected by a cluster of central site VPN gateways via VPN. All hardware devices needed are stored in a rack in the headquarters.

Virtual infrastructure

Virtual design of a scenario with LANCOM vRouter

With the LANCOM vRouter you gain space in your rack and benefit from an optimal networking between locations via VPN. You can virtualize an infrastructure on an ESXi server without using further hardware components.

Proven operating system virtualized

The LANCOM vRouter is a product that uncompromisingly unites the LANCOM core values of security, reliability and sustainability. Secure because it is based on the tried-and-trusted operating system LCOS. Reliable because the long-standing know-how of our employees has been incorporated into the product development. Sustainable because it supports advanced technologies such as SD-WAN, the latest virtualization technologies, and management via the LANCOM Management Cloud.

Instant deployment anywhere

The routers are deployed with just a few clicks and within seconds instead of hours: At any location around the world, wherever a router is required, the LANCOM vRouter is created automatically—without any shipping or hardware installation! Be it in a lab environment, in your own server room or data center, or in the cloud.

Fast recovery

The LANCOM vRouter is easily and completely backed up to any storage medium at any time. This means that even in the event of server hardware failure, your router can be restarted immediately on another machine, so avoiding any lengthy network outages.

Full integration into the LANCOM Management Cloud

The LANCOM vRouter is effortlessly managed and monitored by the LANCOM Management Cloud. The LMC is the world's first management system for the intelligent organization, optimization and control of your entire network. This radically simplifies the management of installations, from small to very large scenarios. What's more, the virtual router can be managed with all of the tried-and-tested methods.

Radical simplification of the configuration with SD-WAN

In combination with the LANCOM Management Cloud, the LANCOM vRouter opens the way for automated management. The software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) enables the automatic setup of secure VPN connections between sites, including network virtualization across the wide-area network: A few mouse clicks is all it takes to enable the VPN function and select the required VLANs for each site. The laborious configuration of individual tunnel endpoints is no longer required at all.

Advanced Routing & Forwarding

The LANCOM vRouter provides up to 256 securely isolated IP contexts, each of which has its own separate routing. This is an elegant way of operating IP applications via one central router. Be it in small networks or enterprise environments: The various communication channels remain securely isolated from one another and are easily configured with the LANCOM Management Cloud.

State-of-the-art security

The LANCOM vRouter supports the very latest security functions including IPSec-VPN based on IKEv2, elliptic curves, and AES-GCM—for IPv4 and IPv6 networks. This advanced technology ensures that remote sites and mobile workers are securely integrated into the network and that corporate data remains well protected. All of this comes guaranteed backdoor-free thanks to IT security Made in Germany.
