The bintec R1202 VPN gateway with Gigabit Ethernet and an ISDN interface has been designed for SMEs and medium-sized corporate headquarters with higher performance requirements.
The bintec R1202 is a powerful and, thanks to its comprehensive equipment, flexible VPN gateway. With its 19-inch metal housing and highly efficient internal switched-mode power supply the gateway guarantees long-term reliability in critical corporate applications. This makes the R1202 ideal for use as a VPN gateway in SMEs and company head offices. The device has five Gigabit Ethernet ports, which can be configured for LAN, WAN or DMZ, and comes with a licence for ten hardware-accelerated IPSec tunnels. Up to 100 additional IPSec tunnels can also be enabled if licensed.
The built-in ISDN BRI interface can be used as a remote configuration access and as an ISDN backup interface.
Using functions flexibly
Only a few functions are required to forward data between two networks. Bintec gateways have features that go far beyond just routing and allow it to be seamlessly integrated into complex IT infrastructures.
As routing protocols, you can use RIP, OSPF or the Multicast routing protocol PIM-SM for example, and the comprehensive multicast support makes the device ideal for use in multimedia and streaming applications.
Even the basic equipment of the bintec R1202 provides a SIP application level gateway (ALG) for the direct connection of IP telephones in the network or for registering with a VoIP provider. The ALG automatically controls the internal firewall making it easier to configure your VoIP solution.
Thanks to the integrated quality of service, you can prioritise VoIP traffic over normal internet traffic, for example, and thereby always ensure sufficient bandwidth for your IP voice connections. Alternatively you can give normal data traffic priority over e-mail traffic. The DNS proxy function supports the LAN for address implementation and the automated IP configuration of PCs is carried out over an integrated DHCP server.
Remote CAPI is available for the joint use of various ISDN services.
Comprehensive IPSec implementation
The IPSec implementation integrated in bintec R1202 works not only with preshared keys but also with certificates. This allows a public key infrastructure to be created for maximum security. (The German Federal Office for Information Security also recommends the use of certificates.)
Furthermore, the bintec IPSec implementation offers support when creating VPN connections with dynamic IP addresses: Even small branch offices can be reached without having to be permanently online. If both VPN nodes only have dynamic IP addresses, confidential information can continue. The exchange of IP addresses is carried out either over dynamic DNS providers or directly over an ISDN connection. The actual dynamic IP address is transferred either free of charge in the ISDN D-channel or, if this is not possible, in the B-channel (at cost).
By using IKE Config mode and the bintec IPSec multi user this offers the opportunity to create and manage IPSec dial-in solutions for multiple clients with minimal expense and IKE X-Auth (extended authentication) allows a connection to be secured with a one time password and thus with the highest level of security.
The bintec R1202 offers the opportunity to configure two or three interfaces as WAN interfaces. As a result, there is not only more bandwidth available, but there is the opportunity to spread data traffic across individual WAN connections according to load or data type. Equally, you can use a connection (e.g. SDSL) for the VPN connection of branch offices and external sales staff and use a second WAN port for a low-cost ADSL connection to guarantee the company`s other data traffic.
Our bintec router redundancy protocol (BRRP) allows two devices to be operated so that they act as a single device in the LAN. Both devices have their own IP and MAC addresses for each interface as well as a joint virtual IP and MAC address. This is registered as the standard gateway for all computers in the LAN. Both of the switched gateways communicate over the bintec protocol and if either device fails, the other device automatically takes over the entire data traffic.
Simple configuration and maintenance
The gateway is configured over the Configuration Interface (FCI), using the integrated configuration wizards for example. The FCI is a web-based graphic user surface that you can use from any PC with an up-to-date Web browser via an HTTP or encrypted HTTPS connection. It also offers the opportunity to manage the devices locally and remotely over other configuration accesses such as Telnet, SSH and ISDN login.
DIME Manager is a free tool for managing bintec and elmeg devices.
DIME Manager is aimed at administrators who manage networks with up to 50 devices. The software simplifies the management and configuration of gateways or access points either individually or in logical groups.
When developing DIME Manager, simple and efficient operation was the primary aim. It allows, for example, software updates to be applied to individual devices or groups of devices simply by drag and drop. DIME Manager recognises and manages new devices in the network using SNMP multicasts, in other words independent of their current IP address.
WLAN Controller, HotSpot and adult content filtering
The router also includes all the functionality of the bintec WLAN Controller. The bintec WLAN controller lets you configure and monitor small- and mid-sized WLAN networks with up to 72 access points. No matter whether you need frequency management with automatic channel selection, loadbalancing across several access points, support for virtual LANs, or virtual wireless network administration (multi-SSID) - you have all these advanced features at your fingertips with the WLAN Controller. The software continually monitors the entire wireless network, notifying administrators of any malfunctions or security threats.
The router`s integrated HotSpot Gateway together is an ideal complement to the WLAN Controller in combination with a bintec HotSpot license, allowing operators to set up a wireless guest network that requires authentication. This secure separation between the guest network and company network is configured through the WLAN Controller and implemented using virtual wireless networks. An additional highlight is the optional bintec elmeg webfilter which can be used to prevent children and youth from accessing inappropriate content.
