The LANCOM vRouter offers you maximum versatility in terms of performance and network size, and thus ideal adaptation to your individual infrastructure. It replaces hardware components in classic infrastructures and enables optimally scalable networking thanks to the virtualization of network functions (NFV).
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.
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.
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.
In addition to a VPN router (vCPE) and a central-site VPN gateway (vGateway), the LANCOM vRouter now also supports the role of a virtual WLAN controller (vWLC). This allows full virtualization of WLAN controller functionalities on a virtualization platform such as VMWare ESXi, Hyper-V or Microsoft Azure (in preparation). The number of managed access points depends on the license category activated on the vRouter.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
