Main Benefits:

Lowers cost of ownership through integrated routing, CSU/DSU, optional Quality of Service, and network monitoring capabilities

Improves network reliability and performance through load sharing and load balancing in a multihoming environment

Offers flexible interfaces that can be deployed as independent links or bundled into one or more MLPPP or MLFR bundles

Supports broad range of routing protocols such as static routing, RIP1, RIP2, OSPF, optional BGP-4, IGMPv3, and GRE

Reduces access cost by integrating NAT services for Internet access

Better performance than many traditional branch office routers due to integrated hardware and software architecture

The 5842 and 5844 Multiport Routers

When price and performance count.

Quick Eagle Networks’ 5842 and 5844 Multiport Routers are ideal for mediumsized businesses and enterprise branch offices that require high performance and high port density at lower cost.

The 5842 Multiport RouterTM comes standard with 2 x T1/E1 WAN ports enabled. However, its unique design allows your network to grow with your business: it can be upgraded to 4 x T1/E1 WAN ports through software. No waiting for hardware, no engineering time to perform the upgrade, and no lengthy system downtime is required. The 5844 Multiport RouterTM comes with all 4 T1/E1 WAN ports activated1.

Both routers deliver all the functions that 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 routers to link small and large enterprise networks with advanced IP routing services, such as multipaths and path redundancy.

Static NAT, dynamic NAT, and overloading (NAPT) lets 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.

Multilink PPP (RFC1990) and Multilink Frame Relay (FRF.16.1) protocols provide the 5842 and 5844 Multiport Routers with the capability to bond multiple T1/E1s into a single high-speed virtual link or enable load balancing applications. The 5842 and 5844 Multiport Routers can also be deployed as a MAC Learning Bridge (IEEE 802.1d) over Frame Relay or PPP.

With optional standard-based DiffServ QoS (Differentiated Services/Quality Of Service) capabilities the 5842 and 5844 Multiport Routers allow 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.

With their virtually wire-speed performance, scalability in routing protocols, breadth of features, and competitive pricing, there are now alternatives to those traditional, high cost, proprietary branch office routers.

1 For customers looking to expand beyond 4xT1/E1 WAN ports, please refer to Quick Eagle’s 5840 Multiport Router.
