Featuring fallback and line bonding, IPv4 & IPv6 firewalling, port mapping, and traffic shaping and a variety of VPN options including IPsec with IKEv2, it can even operate as a VoIP phone system (PBX) providing a range of features for an office. The FB2900 is equally at home in an Office environment or in a telephone exchange acting as a small BRAS or LNS.

  • Telco 48V DC (Model FB2900T)

Base -vs- Fully Loaded

The hardware platform is identical between the two variants of the product. This means it is possible to upgrade remotely from Base to Fully Loaded. The differences in the feature sets are listed above, but the most common usage case where Fully Loaded is required is where the site needs line bonding.
