Introducing the DrayTek Vigor 2866 series


New, SMB Router for Ultrafast G.Fast broadband and Superfast VDSL

Vigor 2927 series

London, August 18, 2021 – Business class networking solutions manufacturer DrayTek is delighted to announce the introduction of the Vigor 2866 series. Where connectivity is mission critical, a single network connection can become a single point of failure. With the new Vigor 2866 series multi-WAN router - supporting Gigabit speed - small business, home offices and remote workers can plan a robust broadband failover strategy and more.

Openreach deployed G.Fast to increase speeds from existing copper wiring into UK premises with speeds up to 330Mbps. According to ISPreview, G.Fast is available to 2.8 million premises across the UK.

The Vigor 2866 series is a G.Fast, VDSL2/ADSL2+ and Ethernet WAN router featuring VPN, advanced routing features, firewall, content filtering, bandwidth management and more. Connect the Vigor 2866 to Superfast Fibre with its integrated G.Fast and VDSL modem. Or, connect to VirginMedia Cable and Ultrafast FTTP with Ethernet WAN.

“With our Vigor 2866 multi-WAN router, we create a path for users to connect to VDSL today, and seamlessly transition to full fibre FTTP or G.Fast in the future,” stated Julian Hubble, DrayTek Sales Director.

Small businesses can improve network uptime by deploying the ‘Lac’ model to create a robust broadband failover and load-balancing strategy with 4G/LTE or multi-WAN connections. They can support up to 32 concurrently active VPN tunnels, with fast and secure IPsec VPN tunnels. In addition, SMBs can connect to DrayTek access points and switches to build a seamless wired and wireless environment.

DrayTek broadband failover options

For hybrid, remote workers, the Vigor 2866 can power wired and wireless devices around a home with Gigabit speed. Remote workers will gain flexibility – beyond standard broadband service provider-provided equipment - to segment home from guest users via VLANs, add web content filtering and improve QoS for mission-critical applications.

The Vigor 2866 series is compatible with DrayTek’s cloud-based and SD-WAN centralised management platform, which provides a cost-effective full management system for your entire network across multiple sites.
