Cisco SOHO 96 router has an integrated ADSL modem that supports ADSL over ISDN lines, a four-port 10/100 Ethernet LAN switch for connecting multiple PCs or network devices in a small office network, and an integrated ISDN S/T port that can be used for remote management and troubleshooting.
SECURE INTERNET ACCESS
The Cisco SOHO 96 ADSL over ISDN Secure Broadband Router, recommended for up to five users, allows all users in a small office to share a secure broadband connection with an integrated stateful-inspection firewall. Corporate teleworkers or small-office users can also take advantage of the Cisco SOHO 96 router for VPN connections to the corporate network. The router can set up secure Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES) encrypted connections using Cisco IOS Software or users can initiate VPN tunnels from PC-based VPN clients on the LAN.
EASY SETUP AND DEPLOYMENT
The Cisco SOHO 96 router includes the Cisco Router Web SetUp Tool (CRWS), a Web-based configuration tool, available in multiple languages, that allows users to quickly self-install the router. Because CRWS is Web-based, no additional software is required on the PC for configuration. Users simply point a browser to the router and follow a few easy steps to quickly get the router up and running. Additionally, the Cisco Configuration Express service allows enterprise or service provider customers who order products direct from Cisco to have preconfigured Cisco SOHO 96 routers shipped from manufacturing directly to the end users.
ADVANCED MANAGEMENT FEATURES FOR LOW COST OF OWNERSHIP
To simplify management and reduce ongoing operational costs, the Cisco SOHO 96 router takes advantage of many local and remote debug and troubleshooting features in Cisco IOS Software. The built-in ISDN S/T port allows out-of-band management of the router, if it is not reachable via the ADSL over ISDN interface. To further reduce operational costs, the router supports centralized management and configuration updates with the Cisco IE 2100 Intelligent Engine management appliance.
The Cisco SOHO 96 router provides the right combination of integrated security features, including a four-port 10/100 Ethernet LAN switch, advanced management features including management via the integrated ISDN S/T port, to secure broadband connections for small office and home office users. The Cisco SOHO 96 router uses the same Cisco IOS Software that is used in large service provider and enterprise networks, allowing small-office users to take advantage of the proven reliability of Cisco IOS Software.
