Product Overview

Cisco ® Small Business Solutions enable small companies to connect employees, customers, and suppliers - easily, reliably, and affordably. Drawing on a broad portfolio of Cisco products, local partners build and maintain individualized solutions that help small businesses around the world work better.
The Cisco WRV200 Wireless-G VPN Router (Figure 1) enables secure, reliable wireless network access for your small business. Its intuitive web-based interface allows you to easily set up its features. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) gives you the ability to remotely manage and monitor the device.
Ten IP Security (IPsec) QuickVPN tunnels with a throughput of 30 Mbps give your mobile workers a secure and easy-to-use way to stay connected. As an essential element of your business, this product provides security functions for authentication, encryption, and firewall.
The VPN router gives your business multiple service set identifiers (SSIDs) and VLANs for traffic separation, and enhanced quality of service (QoS) features for improved voice and video quality. With support for wireless QoS (Wi-Fi Multimedia [WMM]) and wired QoS (port prioritization), consistent voice and video quality is maintained throughout your business.
The RangeBooster technology provides increased range and reliability, using multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO). The RF output allows flexible control of the wireless access coverage.


• 802.11g supports data rates up to 54 Mbps

• Dual fixed antennas with MIMO provide two to three times better coverage than standard 802.11g wireless devices

• Supports multiple SSID mapping to specific VLAN to create separate, secured networks

• 10 IPsec VPN tunnels with QuickVPN support
