RFI Engineering Adds VPN Feature to Smart Data Routers

RFI Engineering, a leading manufacturer of smart data solutions, intelligent port controllers, compact wireless gateways and remote management accessories, recognizing the vast and growing potential of programmable intelligent data solutions for the M2M market, today announced that it has added industry-standard VPN tunneling to its smart data router product-line.

Currently, the smart data router product-line consists of the G-router (GSM/GRPS) and the C-router (CDMA/CDMA1x). The smart data routers are designed as an intelligent wireless data transmitter, including event monitoring and reporting from monitored equipment, which can be effectively deployed in sensor networks, smart metering and monitoring applications.

Smart data routers, such as the G-router and the C-router are able to set up a packet oriented data connection to the Internet using GPRS or CDMA1x. Most data connections offered by mobile operators are Internet centric, meaning they are to be used for Internet access. The smart data router is able to establish a connection to the Internet, but the device itself is hidden behind the Internet gateway of the network operator. This means that the data router itself can not be reached from the public Internet.

A solution is to establish a VPN tunnel between each smart data router and the customer’s VPN server. For this purpose, L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) VPN client support has been added to the feature set of the G-router and C-router. Customers can access the C-router or G-router directly, using their own L2TP VPN server.

'By adding a VPN client to our flagship product the G-router and the recently announced C-router, we have equipped our smart data routers with the possibility of establishing a secure VPN connection to a central VPN router, which offers customers a competitive edge by providing high-grade network security and reducing their total cost of ownership,” says Peter Calis, CEO of RFI Engineering.
