Optimal Wireless Speeds and Coverage
With an integrated draft 802.11n Wireless Access Point, the router delivers up to 6 times the speeds and 3 times the wireless coverage of an 802.11b / g network device. It supports a data rate of up to 300 Mbps and is also compatible with 802.11b / g equipment. The Wireless Protected Access (WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK) and Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) features enhance the level of transmission security and access control over Wireless LAN. The router also supports the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) standard, allowing users to establish a secure wireless network by simply pushing a button. If your network requires wider coverage, the built-in Wireless Distribution System (WDS) repeater function allows you to expand your wireless network without the need for any external wires or cables.
3G Mobility and Always-On Connection
With the BiPAC 7402NX you can connect a 3G / HSDPA USB modem to its built-in USB port, enabling you to use a 3G / HSDPA, UMTS, EDGE, GPRS, or GSM Internet connection, which makes downstream rates of up to 14.4 Mbps*(Note 3) possible. With the increasing popularity of the 3G standard, communication via the BiPAC 7402NX is becoming more convenient and widely available - allowing you to watch movies, download music on the road, or access e-mail no matter where you are. You can even share your Internet connection with others, no matter if you're in a meeting, or speeding across the country on a train. The auto fail-over feature ensures maximum connectivity and minimum interruption by quickly and smoothly connecting to a 3G network in the event that your ADSL line fails. The BiPAC 7402NX will then automatically reconnect to the ADSL connection when it's restored, reducing connection costs. These features are perfect for office situations where constant connection is paramount.-.
Express Internet Access at Gigabit Connectivity
The BiPAC 7402NX is compliant with worldwide ADSL standards, and supports download rates of up to 12 / 24 Mbps using ADSL2 / 2+, 8 Mbps using ADSL and an upload rate of up to 1 Mbps. The integrated Annex M standard supports ADSL2 / 2+ for higher upload speeds by doubling the upload data rate. With the built-in 4-port Gigabit Switch, the BiPAC 7402NX enables you to connect to multiple computers or wired-Ethernet devices easily and enjoy amazingly fast LAN transmissions for multimedia applications such as interactive gaming, IPTV video streaming and real-time audio.
Secure VPN Connections
The BiPAC 7402NX supports embedded IPSec VPN (Virtual Private Network) protocols, allowing users to establish encrypted private connections of up to 16 simultaneous tunnels over the Internet. With a built-in DES / 3DES VPN accelerator, the router enhances IPSec VPN performance significantly - so you can access your corporate intranet and transmit sensitive data between branch offices and remote sites anytime; even when you are on the road, thus enhancing productivity.
