The LANCOM 1780EW-4G is particularly suitable for mobile applications in foreign networks. The VPN router enables the establishment of 5 simulaneous IPSec channels
and can be optionally upgraded to 25 channels. On top of that, an object-oriented stateful-inspection firewall protects the network with intrusion prevention and
denial-of-service protection. Due to modern WPA2 encryption, highest security is ensured for data transfers via WLAN. The optionally available LANCOM Content Filter
effectively protects up to 100 users surfing the Internet.
More management.
LCMS, the LANCOM Management System, is a free software package for the LANCOM 1780EW-4G. It enables the configuration of the device, remote maintenance, and
network monitoring. The central component of LCMS, LANconfig, is used to configure the LANCOM 1780EW-4G and other LANCOM devices on the network. The extensive
range of features and the onfiguration wizards enable a quick setup of the router. LANCOM Large Scale Monitor (LSM) and the free-of-charge LANmonitor offer detailed,
real-time monitoring of parameters, access to log files and statistics, as well as detailed trace-protocol analysis. Other functions in LCMS include the GUI for firewall setup,
automatic backup of configurations and scripts, and the intuitive folder structure with a convenient search function.
More virtualization.
The LANCOM 1780EW-4G helps you to use your IT resources more effectively and to save costs. The device supports multiple independent networks with the powerful
technology Advanced Routing and Forwarding (ARF). The ARF function on the LANCOM 1780EW-4G provides up to sixteen virtual networks, each with its own settings
for DHCP, DNS, routing, and firewall.
More reliability for the future.
With the LANCOM 1780EW-4G corporate networks can be upgraded for the use of the Internet protocol IPv6 using their current infrastructure. Due to the implementation
of dual-stack, the router can be operated in pure IPv4, pure IPv6, or mixed networks. On top of that, several times a year free-of-charge updates for the LANCOM Operating
System (LCOS) are available. Hence, LANCOM offers maximum safeguarding of your investment.
