Compatible with IPV6, new router offers a green, scalable approach to wireless networking

D-Link has launched the DSR-1000N Unified Services Router to offer businesses secure networking across multiple branches.

The company hopes that the new offering will help businesses securely and reliably connect branch offices and remote workers to the corporate network.

The D-Link DSR-1000N offers comparable performance to traditional wired networks, said the company.


Owing to its affordability, the router suits small-to-medium sized businesses looking to wirelessly connect their branch offices and remote workers securely.

D-Link’s DSR-1000N comprehensive ‘out-of-the-box’ security features allows the creation of a fully-featured Virtual Private Network (VPN) engine. It also provides an enterprise-class, subscription-based Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), said the company.

The DSR-1000N also has energy-saving features, including a WLAN Scheduler and intelligent green Ethernet technology. The router offers load balancing and fault tolerance for networks that provide critical services.

The DSR-1000N delivers business recovery in case of loss of Internet connectivity by integrating a dualband Wireless N access point and supporting 3G mobile connectivity via a D-Link 3G USB dongle. It has an additional USB port is also available for connecting and sharing a printer or a USB hard drive over the network.

D-Link’s DSR-1000N is IPv6 certified which allows users to take advantage of the advanced security mechanisms embedded in this new protocol. It is priced from the suggested retail price (SRP) of ¬£394.49.

D-Link UK & Ireland General Manager Chris Davies said not only will the new router offer secure remote connectivity for businesses, but through the 3G-based back-up data connection, it offers a robust and cost-effective level of business continuity.

Davies said, “Moreover, the DSR-1000N has a number of high-end energy-saving features and is also fully compliant with IPv6 networks, meaning that there will be no requirement for businesses to replace their routers while upgrading from IPv4 to IPv6 in the future.”
