Duxbury Networking releases Dux 412
The Dux 412 provides data backup and redundancy features designed to ensure business continuity in applications where fixed infrastructure is costly and time prohibitive.
It will be marketed through the Duxbury Networking reseller network as an “office in a box” and targeted at the mining and construction industries, as well as at users in retail, banking and emergency services.
“By providing a wireless voice and data redundancy path, the Dux 412 guards against fixed line outages,” says Armand Steffens, business development manager at Duxbury Networking.
“It can even substitute for fixed line services in certain applications.”
He says by integrating a wide range of communication technologies and protocols (3G HSUPA, ADSL/ADSL2+, 802.11b/g/n and SIP VoIP/FoIP) the Dux 412 can function as an effective backup WAN and as an automatic failover should an ADSL2+ connection break down.
“Now, with one interface users can enjoy excellent VoIP and T.38 FoIP services over ADSL or 3G,” notes Steffens.
The Dux 412 boasts a range of security features including IPsec (IP security) VPN and a PPTP (point to point tunnelling) VPN function, enabling users to access corporate intranets and transmit sensitive data between branch offices and remote sites.
“Because it can act as a cost-effective fixed line alternative for broadband and fixed phone services where infrastructure is unavailable, it is able to service a mobile workforce, allowing users to bring their own wireless ‘branch office’ in the form of a VPN to a temporary work site,” he adds.
