The new Cisco® 860VAE Series Integrated Services Routers (ISRs) are part of the Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) portfolio. Cisco 860VAE routers support Gigabit Ethernet (GE) or very-high-speed DSL 2/asymmetric DSL2+ (VDSL2/ADSL2+) on a single, fixed ISR. The Cisco 860VAE Series can provide cost-effective basic or secure wired or wireless connectivity for a casual or enterprise teleworker as well as serve as managed customer premises equipment (CPE) for service providers.
Features and Benefits
Cisco 860VAE Series ISRs are entry-level, fixed-configuration routers that serve a range of business needs from providing basic connectivity for the casual teleworker to providing secure collaboration for the enterprise teleworker. For service providers, the Cisco 860VAE ISRs present an opportunity for tiered basic or secure managed CPE devices. With multiple WAN technologies offered within a single box (GE, ADSL2+, or VDSL2), the Cisco 860VAE, which shares a common architecture across its variants, allows for consistent management across various deployment scenarios. The Cisco 860VAE ISRs that come in a compact fanless desktop form factor provide improved performance, state-of-the-art xDSL features, and significantly better interoperability over the existing Cisco 860 Series ISRs.
The Cisco 860VAE Series Integrated Services Routers offer:
- Cost-effective basic or secure connectivity with quality of service (QoS) for teleworkers and managed CPE devices for service providers
- Compact metallic desktop form factor featuring a fanless ISR for convenient home or office deployment
- WAN diversity with either Gigabit Ethernet or Multimode VDSL2/ADSL2+ on the same router to span multiple deployment scenarios with common architecture, embedded management, and consistent configurability
- State-of-the-art xDSL features and interoperability and enhanced ISR performance with services
- Four-port 10/100 Fast Ethernet (FE) managed switch for base models with five VLANs; additionally, one Gigabit Ethernet LAN port for the Cisco 860VAE secure routers
- Three 10/100 Fast Ethernet switch ports and two Gigabit Ethernet switch ports in the wireless models with 2.4 GHz 802.11n FCC- or ETSI-compliant wireless LAN
- Secure routers with enhanced security and QoS, including:
- Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Low-Latency Queuing (LLQ), and Weighted Fair Queuing (WFQ)
- Class-based traffic shaping and traffic policing
- Ten IP Security (IPsec) tunnels
- Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR) and Differentiated Services (DiffServ)
- CON/AUX port for console or external modem
- One USB 2.0 port to boot from USB or to load configuration
- IPv6 support on all models
