Reliable Internet connection with zero downtime

Featuring multiple WAN interface support, the SBG5500/SBG3310 series works with a diverse range of network interfaces your Internet Service Providers may offer, including ADSL2, VDSL2, gigabit Ethernet, fiber and 3G/4G cellular networks. Zero downtime can be achieved as users can flexibly use multiple WAN interfaces simultaneously for load-balancing and failover - so that if one connection becomes overloaded or fails, another will take over to avoid any business interruption.

Security-focused connectivity

For businesses wary of snooping cybercriminals, the SBG5500/SBG3310 series is packed with security features, including L2TP/IPSec VPN that safeguards communications with remote offices or telecommuters. Businesses will be able to get hands-on with the simple VPN configuration, and the high-capacity design allows multiple offices or tens of employees to access the VPN at the same time. With the basic SPI firewall functions, the SBG5500/SBG3310 series is also engineered to ward off cyber threats for business networks.

“Small businesses, startups or SOHO offices that lack a dedicated IT department are often caught in the dilemma of whether to settle for consumer-grade routers that are too plain to meet business needs or enterprise-grade devices that are too costly and complicated,” said Nathan Yen, AVP of Zyxel Gateway Business Unit. “That’s where our VPN routers come in – they’re the perfect fit with all the essentials they could ask for.”
