Secure VPN Router


Allied Telesis Secure Virtual Private Network (VPN) Routers are the ideal secure gateway for modern businesses. Integrated firewall and VPN functionality is combined with routing and switching, providing an innovative solution that is easy to use and very secure.

AR1050V router


As businesses adapt to faster paced operations, with increasing amounts of data, and the need to access company resources from outside the office, the demand for high performance VPN connectivity becomes more urgent.

The AR1050V features comprehensive security and networking capabilities, meeting the demands of distributed businesses that require multi-site VPNs.

Secure Remote VPNs

The AR1050V supports IPSec site-to-site VPNs for connecting branch offices to a central office, providing employees company-wide with consistent access to the corporate network.

Firewall throughput 480 Mbps
Concurrent sessions 100,000
New sessions per second 3,600
IPS throughput 135 Mbps
VPN throughput 180 Mbps

Easy to manage

The AR1050V runs the advanced AlliedWare Plus™ fully featured operating system, with an industry standard CLI. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) includes wizards for easy Internet connectivity and VPN creation, while the dashboard enables monitoring of traffic throughput and security status. Configuration of security zones, networks and hosts, and rules to limit and manage traffic, provides a consistent approach to policy management.

Firewall engine
Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDS/IPS) IDS/IPS provides monitoring, analysis and logging of suspicious events that occur on a network. It can also perform a variety of actions to prevent attacks.
URL filtering Enables HTTP or HTTPS access to particular websites to be allowed (whitelist) or blocked (blacklist) with user-defined lists.
Virtual Private Networking (VPN)
IPSec VPN for site-to-site connectivity High-performance IPSec VPN allows the AR1050V to connect branch offices and other large sites, for secure sharing of business information.
VPN pass-through Pass-through enables VPN clients to make outbound connections using L2TP, PPTP or IPsec.
Redundant VPN gateway Primary and secondary VPNs can be configured when using multiple WAN connections, for seamless failover of VPN connectivity to a remote site.
IPv6 support Full support for IPv6 routing, multicasting and security is provided.
IPv6 transition technologies DS (Dual Stack) Lite, Lightweight 4over6, and MAP-E support connecting IPv4 networks over an IPv6 Internet connection.
Autonomous Management Framework (AMF) AMF enables new devices to be pre-provisioned for zero-touch deployment. This simplifies installation, guarantees consistent configuration, and reduces setup time and cost.
AMF backup/recovery As an AMF member, the AR1050V is automatically backed up, and can be recovered with plug-and-play simplicity.
Flexible deployment options The AR1050V can be deployed in traditional NAT, Wire Mode and Network Tap modes.

Multi-site VPN connectivity

Allied Telesis Secure VPN Routers are the ideal integrated security platform for modern businesses. The powerful combination of VPN connectivity, secure remote access, and routing and switching, provides a single platform to connect and protect corporate data.

This example shows how the AR1050V can provide multisite connectivity back to a head office. IPSec VPNs to an Allied Telesis Unified Threat Management (UTM) Firewall ensure that all staff have full access to digital resources.

Automated network management

In addition to protecting and connecting modern networks, the AR1050V is fully supported by AMF.

Autonomous Management Framework (AMF) is a sophisticated suite of management tools that automate and simplify many day-to-day network administration tasks. Powerful features like centralized management, auto-backup, auto-upgrade, auto-provisioning and auto-recovery ensure streamlined networking. Growing the network can be accomplished with plug-and-play simplicity, and network node recovery is fully zero-touch.

As part of an AMF network, along with all of the network switches, the UTM Firewall and VPN Routers are automatically backed up, ensuring seamless recovery if required.
