Functions and features

The VPN router - VR2020-LD with VDSL/ADSL and mobile communications - is manufactured to the highest quality standards and is ideal for setting up secure branch networks or connecting mobile ATMs thanks to its high level of flexibility.

The VR2020-LD achieves high-speed internet access with extremely high reliability thanks to intelligent backup management and the use of two SIM cards (dual SIM support).

So that the router can be operated on all modern DSL connections, including All-IP, the VR2020-LD has an integrated DSL modem that supports the ADSL/2/2+ and VDSL/VDSL2 standards as well as VDSL2 vectoring. The 4G wireless connection is provided via a multi-band modem that supports the LTE (= Long Term Evolution), HSPA+, HSDPA/HSUPA, UMTS, EDGE and GPRS standards. The Ethernet WAN port allows the realisation of any gateway connections as well as the connection of external modems (e.g. SDSL, cable, FTTH).

A VR2020-LD router can be easily integrated into a branch network or connected to a head office via a permanently established VPN tunnel and can therefore be accessed directly using private IP addressing. DynDNS is not required for access in this case, but can be set up at any time.

The fully implemented VPN standards IPSec and OpenVPN ensure maximum security during data transmission. Authentication is carried out using either stored certificates or pre-shared keys. The VPN router supports all modern encryption algorithms such as AES with a key length of up to 256 bits.

When it comes to security, the integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM), which is used to securely store secret keys, should also be emphasised. Cryptographic keys can be generated, used and securely stored within the TPM with the support of the integrated and secure random number generator (RNG). The Trusted Platform Module offers protection against both software attacks and hardware manipulation.

A configurable high-security firewall is available to protect your network from attacks. This can be easily customised to your individual requirements using rules and scripts.

The VPN router can be conveniently configured - both locally and remotely - via the intuitive web interface. Experts can also manage the VR2020-LD via command line (SSH).

Automated remote configuration/maintenance via TDT C.O.R.E. and monitoring via a network management system such as Checkmk are ideal for use in branch networks.


All features in detail

  • Modular software structure
    The modular software structure offers the option of integrating customised/custom-developed software.
  • DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
    A communication protocol that enables clients to retrieve and servers to assign the network configuration (client/relay/server)
  • Protocols
    z. E.G. IP, TCP, UDP, PPP, ARP, RARP, ICMP
  • DNS (Domain Name System)
    It manages the name space in networks, e.g. for converting domain names into IP addresses (client/relay/server).
  • Dynamic DNS
    Dynamic DNS: It is used to dynamically update the IP address of a computer so that it can always be reached under the same name.
  • NTP (Network Time Protocol)
     Standard for time synchronisation via networks (client/server)
  • Routing
    Static routing (IPv4 forwarding)
    Static routing (IPv6 forwarding)
    Policy-based routing (PBR)
  • NAT (Network Address Translation)
    Source and destination NAT/NAPT and masquerading
  • QoS (Quality of Service)
    For prioritising data packets to meet the quality standard, especially for time-critical transmissions/applications
  • Real-time statistics and log function
  • Syslog client
  • TPM (Trusted Platform Module)
    The TPM chip is comparable to a permanently installed smart card. The TPM protects cryptographic keys; these can be generated, used and securely stored within the TPM. It offers protection against software and hardware attacks (physical manipulation results in the destruction of the stored keys). In addition, the integrated random number generator (RNG) provides secure number sequences as the basis for securely encrypted communication.
  • Firewall
    Zone-based stateful inspection firewall (IPv4/IPv6) with packet filter and demilitarised zone (DMZ);
    Bridging firewall
  • OpenVPN
    Free software based on OpenSSL for setting up a secure VPN via an encrypted connection. Both routed and bridged tunnels (client/server) are supported.
  • IPSec
    Internet Protocol Security: for secure VPN communication via potentially insecure
  • L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol), passthrough
    Tunnelling protocol for transmitting the data link layer (Layer 2) of the OSI model between two networks
  • WireGuard
    WireGuard uses the latest, particularly powerful cryptographic algorithms, e.g. the Noise Protocol Framework, Curve25519, ChaCha20, Poly1305, BLAKE2, SipHash24 or HKDF. WireGuard gets a further performance boost from the fact that the software is executed on the server side as a Linux kernel module. WireGuard uses only public keys for identification and encryption and can therefore dispense with a certificate infrastructure.
  • Hash algorithms
    MD5, SHA1, SHA2 256/512
  • Diffie Hellman Groups
    Schlüsselaustausch zum Sichern: 1, 2, 5, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18
