The PLANET VDSL2 Router, VC-230, is developed with two core networking technologies: Ethernet and VDSL2 (Very High Speed Digital Subscriber Line 2). Based on VDSL 2 technology, the VC-230 provides very high performance access to Internet, up to 100Mbps for both downstream and upstream data transmission. VDSL2 offers the absolute fastest data transmission speeds over existing copper telephone lines without the need for rewiring.
The VC-230 complies with ITU-T G993.2 standard and provides two modes for applications Bridge and Router. With built-in 4-Port 10/100 Ethernet switch, it provides data delivering and receiving in local network, which gives the best solution for small enterprises and residential LAN networking.
There are two selectable operating modes of VC-230: CO and CPE, which can be adjusted by Web UI. Users can setup Point-to-Point application by connecting two VC-230, one in CO mode and another one in CPE mode, to transmit data in high speed between two networks over existing copper telephone lines.
Via the user-friendly management interface, the VC-230 can be managed easily through standard web browsers. Furthermore, the VC-230 not only provides basic routers functions such as DHCP server, Virtual Server, DMZ, QoS, and UPnP, but also provides the fully firewall functions such as Network Address Translation (NAT), IP/Port/MAC Filtering and Content Filtering. The VC-230 serves as an Internet firewall to protect your network from being accessed by unauthorized users.
Peer-to-Peer Network Connection
Internet Access Features
Shared Internet Access
All users on the LAN can access the Internet through the VC-230 using only one
single external IP Address. The local (invalid) IP Addresses are hidden from
external sources. This process is called NAT (Network Address Translation).
Built-in VDSL2 Modem
The VC-230 provides VDSL2 modem and supports all common VDSL2 connections.
Multiple WAN Connection
On the Internet (WAN port) connection, the VC-230 supports Dynamic IP Address (IP
Address is allocated on connection), Fixed IP Address, PPPoE, PPTP and L2TP.
CO and CPE Support
The VC-230 provides the Peer-to-Peer connection. Users can select the CO and CPE
Bridge and Router Application
The VC-230 supports two application modes: bridging and routing modes. Currently,
the default mode is routing mode. Note: routing mode and bridging mode cannot be
Advanced Internet Functions
This feature allows Internet users to access Internet servers on your LAN. The
setup is quick and easy.
The VC-230 supports simple firewall with NAT technology.
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP)
UPnP allows automatic discovery and configuration of the Broadband Router. UPnP is
supported by Windows ME, XP, or later.
Selectable VDSL2 Profiles
The VC-230 supports common VDSL2 profiles (30a, 17a, 12a, 12b, 8a, 8b, 8c, 8d) for
users choice. Users can select different VDSL2 profiles based on their needs.
User Friendly Interface
The VC-230 can be managed and controlled through Web UI.
The VC-230 can translate public IP addresses to private IP address to allow
unrestricted 2-way communication with the servers or individual users on the
Internet. It provides the most flexibility to run programs smoothly for programs
might be restricted in NAT environment.
It supports RIPv1/2 routing protocol for routing capability.
VPN Pass-through Support
PCs with VPN (Virtual Private Networking) software are transparently supported -
no configuration is required.
The VC-230 incorporates a 4-Port 10/100Base-TX switching hub, making it easy to
create or extend your LAN.
DHCP Server Support
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol provides a dynamic IP address to PCs and other
devices upon request. The VC-230 can act as a DHCP Server for devices on your
