ccGigabit Wired Bridge VPN Router Now Available

The popular EIGR series of high-speed routers has been expanded to include a wired bridge VPN model which facilitates easier secure remote access, especially for BACnet systems without the need to setup any BBMDs.

The EIGR-VB high-speed router links two 10/100/1000 Mbps Internet Protocol (IPv4) networks—passing appropriate traffic while blocking all other traffic. One network is the local-area-network (LAN); the other is the wide-area-network (WAN). The built-in stateful firewall passes communication initiated on the LAN-side while blocking WAN-side initiated communication. With Port Address Translation (PAT), LAN-side clients can access the Internet. Network Address Translation (NAT) allows a one-to-one translation between LAN-side and WAN-side devices. With Port Forwarding, LAN-side devices can be accessed from the Internet. The EIGR-VB incorporates a four-port Ethernet switch for multiple LAN-side connections. An external Ethernet-based modem—cable or DSL—can be used to connect to the Internet. DSL modems connect via the PPPoE protocol.

Enhanced Functionality for BASgatewayLX
New firmware that provides enhanced security is available for the BASgatewayLX. The Modbus to BACnet gateway is a popular choice for systems integrators because of its ease-of-use and the availability of pre-defined profiles for devices like energy meters, boilers and chillers. Firmware 2.0.19 provides additional functionality and ease of use.
