Lantech IPWAP-3204DF series is a next generation industrial multi-function VPN router managed switch w/up to 2x 802.3ac Wi-Fi + 4x Gigabit Ethernet+ 2 dual speed SFP incl. 4 PoE ports + 2 serial ports that supports advanced function of VPN, Load-balancing**(Basic & Full Package), EMMC Flash storage** , TWCC**, and Wi-Fi roaming**.The dual core CPU with 1.6GHz + 256M flash enables the router to multi-task smoothly.
Optional TWCC** (Train Wireless Carriage Coupling) for auto coupling
IPWAP-3204DF series supports optional TWCC** (Train Wireless Carriage Coupling) that enables auto wireless coupling to reconnect APs.
IEEE 802.11ac dual band radio up to 2.6Gbps bandwidth
With IEEE 802.11ac capability, IPWAP-3204DF can operate either 5GHz or 2.4GHz bands, offering the maximum speed of 2.6Gbps bandwidth 1.3GMbps per 802.11ac module). It is also compatible with 802.11b/g/n that can work with 2.4GHz for longer range transmission. The Wi-Fi 11ac supports AP/BRIDGE/AP Client modes can be diverse for most of wireless application. Working with load-balancing** “Priority” mode, the AP client can enable router to transmit on Wi-Fi with first priority.
Optional EMMC Flash storage**
The optional EMMC flash storage on router can offer 8G/16G/32G capacity
Air teaming** for wireless high-sustainability and aggregated bandwidth
The innovative Air-teaming protection can combines multiple wireless links to achieve both high-sustainability and aggregated bandwidth. High sustainability can keep the network traffic alive even one link is down or severely interfered. Aggregated bandwidth can bind two link channels to provide the maximum throughput.
MIMO technology with 3T3R and SMA type connectors
Lantech IPWAP-3204DF series adapts MIMO technology with smart antenna transmission and reception for 3T3R. With six external detachable Omni connectors and optional antennas, IPWAP-3204DF can have better Wi-Fi coverage.
Optional 802.11r fast roaming **
IPWAP-3204DF support fast roaming* in coordination with Lantech Wireless Controller to allow encryption keys to be stored on all of the APs in a network. Client mode supports PMK** Caching and pre-authentication (move to roaming section).
Managed switch Function
W/ port managed functions, QOS, VLAN, Multicast, Redundant protection, security
Wireless WMM QoS
IPWAP-3204DF supports 802.11e standard which defines a set of Quality of Service for wireless LAN applications as well as WMM (Wi-Fi multimedia)
Advanced security & 16 SSIDs
The security support standards including 64/128bits WEP, WPA/WPA2 PSK (TKIP*, AES), 802.1x** ensures the best security and active defense against security treads. Lantech IPWAP-3204DF support up to 16 SSIDs, each SSID has its independent security and encryption.
Load Balancing** with 8 mechanisms for multi-WANs (premium license)
IPWAP-3204DF supports Load Balancing** for LTE/WAN connections. There are eight schemes for Load Balancing** function:
|Standard||Fixed||Manually route by traffic type through fixed WAN link.|
|Basic Package||Failover||Routes connections through preferred WAN link while others stand-by. Sequentially activate another link if preferred link fail occurs. Once failover will not failback until link loss.|
|Priority||Routes connections through preferred WAN link as primary while others follow by. Ex. Wi-Fi client>LTE>others|
|Weighted Round-Robin||Evenly distribute the traffic over all working WAN links in circular order according to the specified weights.|
|Custom Route||Routing through the selected WAN for each specific traffic, ex: TCP/UDP port number and IP address.|
|Full Package (incl. basic package)||Sticky Session*||Binding all connections in an application session to particular WAN link to ensure all connections in the session are routed to the same WAN link , that is suitable for security services like online payment etc.|
|Smallest Load*||Routes connections through the WAN link with highest free bandwidth ratio.
The ratio = 1 – (traffic load / the capability of a WAN link).
The traffic load could be defined by downstream, upstream or total traffic
|Fastest*||Routes connections through the WAN link with lowest latency time.|
2 port serial connection
It builds in 2 port serial connection for RS232, RS422, 485 in which RS422/485 has 2.5KV isolation protection.
VPN and firewall
Besides traditional VPN peer to peer tunneling, IPWAP-3204DF support latest Multi-Site VPN function that is an efficient way for mesh tunneling. The registration is under cloud service and encrypted by SSH makes the connection easy and safe. It supports Multi-Site VPN, Open VPN, L2TP, IPsec , L2 over GRE , NAT and PPTP** for various VPN applications. The built-in Layer-4 firewall includes DoS**, IP address filter / Mac address filter* / TCP/UDP port number
DIDO for alarm & email** notice; Event log; Remote Web control
2 sets of optional DIDO function can support additional high/low physical contact for designate applications besides Port / Power events, for example, DIDO function can trigger alarm if the router was moved or stolen. In case of events, the IPWAP-3204DF will immediately send email** and trap. When the router is at remote area with limited access, Web control can help to get router status or remotely reboot.
Wide range input voltage from 9V-60VDC (24V model) ; Built-in 4 port Gigabit Ethernet
The IPWAP-3204DF is able to work from 9VDC to 60VDC (24V model) that is particular good for vehicle, rail train, depot etc. application.
Graphic Wi-Fi signal strength and TX/RX rate display
The graphic Wi-Fi signal strength and TX/RX rate display shows connection status at a glance
USB port for back up, restore configuration and upgrade firmware; Dual image firmware
The built-in USB port can upload/download the configuration and upgrade firmware* through USB dongle for router replacement. It supports dual-image firmware to choose which one to start.
Ignition sense allows you to delay power off the router with a designated time delay.
Built-in Managed Switch Function
Managed switch function is built-in and provides various L2+ functions for network access deployment. It delivers ports and PoE management, VLAN, QoS, multicast, redundant ring, and security functions.
Editable login page of captive portal
The IPWAP-3204DF supports editable captive portal function that allows administrator to force end-users redirect to authentication page.
Ruggedized industrial design and FCC*, CE* & E-marking** certificate
