DATA SHEET

The Cisco® SOHO 96 ADSL over ISDN Secure Broadband Router provides secure connectivity to small and remote offices with up to five users and teleworkers. The Cisco SOHO 96 router supports integrated security features of Cisco IOS® Software such as stateful-inspection firewall protection, strong encryption for virtual private networks (VPNs), easy setup for nontechnical users with a Web-based setup tool, and advanced management capabilities to lower operational costs.

Figure 1. Cisco SOHO 96 Secure Broadband Router

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.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Table 1. Key Product Features and Benefits of the Cisco SOHO 96 Router

Features

Benefits

Shared Broadband Access
Allows multiple users to share connections with a single IP address

Secure Internet Access

Stateful Packet Inspection Firewall (Cisco IOS Firewall Feature Set)

• Offers internal users secure, per-application dynamic access control (stateful inspection) for all traffic across perimeters

• Defends and protects router resources against denial-of-service (DOS) attacks

• Checks packet headers and drops suspicious packets

• Protects against unidentified, malicious Java applets

• Details transactions for reporting on a per-application, per-feature basis

Network Security Features with Cisco IOS Software, Including Access Control Lists (ACLs), Dynamic and Static Network and Port Address Translation (NAT/PAT), Lock & Key, Dynamic ACLs, and Router and Route Authentication
Provides perimeter network security to prevent unauthorized network access
Software-Based IP Security (IPSec) 3DES Encryption
Enables VPN tunnels to terminate in the router allowing all users connected to the router a secure connection from the remote site to a corporate network
Multiuser IPSec Pass-Through
Supports teleworkers or multiple agents using VPN client software on their PCs, allowing IPSec tunnels to pass through the router when VPN PC software clients are used
Multiuser Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) Pass-Through
Support for PPTP tunnels, encrypted or unencrypted, initiated from the PC
IPSec NAT Pass-Through and NAT Traversal

• Allows IPSec tunnels to be established from PC VPN clients in a LAN environment that uses NAT to optimize use of IP addresses

• NAT traversal allows IPsec tunnels to be established across multiple NAT domains

Full-Function NAT (one-to-many and many-to-many)
Allows several applications and devices, including NetMeeting and H.323 phones, to be used transparently from a LAN that deploys NAT
Static-NAT-Based DMZ, Defining A Static Mapping Between A Public IP Address/Port And A Host On The LAN
Allows access to applications (such as Web and Simple Network Management Protocol [SMTP] servers) on the LAN from the WAN via a pinhole on the NAT firewall

Quality of Service (QoS)

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) QoS, Including ATM Traffic Universal Broadband Router (UBR), nonreal-time Variable Bit Rate (VBRnrt), and Constant Bit Rate (CBR) with per-VC Queuing and Traffic Shaping
Helps ensure QoS with ability to send traffic over the appropriate virtual circuit to provide ATM-level shaping and helps ensure that no head-of-line blocking can happen between circuits of different or equal traffic classes

Easy Setup and Deployment

Plug and Play with Default Settings and Web-Based Setup Tool
Users can easily set up the router and customize advanced features
CRWS
Allows nontechnical users to complete installation by simply by pointing a browser at the router and providing user information
Cisco Configuration Express
Lowers cost of deployment by shipping preconfigured units directly to end users without staging or storing

Advanced Management Features for Low Cost of Ownership

Router Status Page in CRWS
Provides a Web-based visual representation of router configuration and feature status (firewall activated, VPN tunnel up, for example)
Cisco IOS Software Interactive Debug and Remote Management Features Through the Integrated ISDN S/T Port
Enables remote management and monitoring via SNMP, Telnet, or HTTP and local management via console port to diagnose network problems in detail; remote management is possible even if the WAN interface is down
Cisco IOS Software Command Line Interface (CLI)
Allows customers to use existing knowledge of Cisco IOS Software CLI for easier installation and manageability without additional training
Cisco IOS Software Technology
Offers technology that is used throughout the backbone of the Internet and in most enterprise networks
Cisco CNS 2100 Series Intelligence Engine
Provides for centralized Cisco IOS Software configuration update; remote sites are configured to contact this centrally located device for configuration updates
Supported by Cisco VPN Solution Center, CiscoWorks VMS, and Cisco Secure Policy Manager
Allows for scalable deployments of security policies management
Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol
Provides a secure, encrypted connection to a router, similar to an inbound Telnet session
