The Syswan Octolink SW88 was easy to install. With a friendly user interface, the appliance offers a GUI Menu driven installation without any software to install. Using a web interface much link home routers, the Syswan Octolink SW88 uses https for secure connection.
Once inside of the interface, the user has the option to use 1-8 WAN Connections. These connections can be xDSL, Satellite, Cable or T1 lines. Ports 1-8 on the front of the applicance allows for the individual connections. Ports 9-16 are for individual computers or network segments. Our setup used port 9 that interconnected to our firewall with Bytes TX and RX as load balancing.
With HTTPS and secure connections, the technology behind SYSWAN's load balancing and failover allows for the connections to go down one pipe (one WAN connection) to insure the connection remains secure.
Individual Alerts can be sent via email to your network administrator alerting them of any problems that may be occurring. With Built in NAT and a SPI Firewall, these alerts and forms of protection add an extra layer of security to your network. Added protection includes Access Filters, URL Blocking and system logs that can added to a Syslog file server. Syswan has built in SNMP network monitor activities.
Syswan offers a Demo site that displays the demo interface for user familiarization. The site allows the end user to preconfigure a demo SW88.
