Quick Eagle 5842 Multiport Router
Quick Eagle 5842 Multiport Router is ideal for medium-sized businesses and
enterprise branch offices that need routers that require high performance and
high port density at lower cost. In its base configuration, the 5842 Multiport
Router has two T1/E1 WAN ports enabled.
The 5842 Multiport Router delivers all the functions you need in a branch office router: The ability to configure static routes, and one or more dynamic routing protocols like RIP1, RIP2, OSPF, and optional BGP-4, enables the router to link enterprise networks with advanced IP routing services, such as multipaths and path redundancy.
Static NAT, dynamic NAT, and overloading (NAPT) allows you access the Internet using your private IP addresses. A stateful inspection firewall permits or denies access based on source and destination IP addresses. The embedded network performance monitoring features enable protocols and applications monitoring (RMON-1, RMON-2) and Frame Relay Service Level Verification.
In addition to its wealth of standard features, the 5842ís unique architecture provides the flexibility to meet the most demanding and evolving business requirements: Enabling your network to grow with your business, the 5842 Multiport Router can be upgraded for added bandwidth (up to 8 Mbps with 4 T1/E1 WAN ports) through software. No waiting for hardware, no engineering time to perform the upgrade, and no lengthy system downtime is required.
Multilink PPP (RFC1990) and Multilink Frame Relay (FRF.16.1) protocols provide the 5842 Multiport Router with the capability to bond multiple T1/E1s into a single high-speed virtual link or enable load-balancing applications. The 5842 Multiport Router can also be deployed as a MAC Learning Bridge (IEEE 802.1d) over Frame Relay or PPP.
With its optional standard-based DiffServ QoS (Differentiated Services/Quality Of Service) capability the 5842 Multiport Router allows you to control and manage the bandwidth on your WAN connection, eliminating bottlenecks for your business-critical applications such as ERP and CRM. In addition, DiffServ QoS enables delay-sensitive voice and video-over-IP services, while dedicating enough bandwidth for lower priority traffic.
