DUBAI, UAE, December 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- D-Link Middle East & Africa today introduced two services routers that address all essential office network services small and medium businesses (SMBs) need in a single box.

The Unified Service Routers, D-Link DSR-500N and DSR-1000N, are full-featured solutions that offer comprehensive traffic management, superior wireless performance, robust security, and flexible deployment capabilities for the network. With all of these comprehensive functions combined, the D-Link DSR series service routers are ideal for SMBs that require a cost-effective solution for office networking.

"Efficiency and reliability top the list of needs for every network today with the ever growing requirements of businesses," said Harrison Albert, Regional Director at D-Link Middle East & Africa. "As office networks continue to accumulate more devices to fulfill different needs, many business networks are quickly becoming more sophisticated and difficult to manage. The D-Link DSR series combines the essential services and functions usually found in multiple devices, and puts them into one device to eliminate unnecessary complexity to your network," Harrison continued.

With mobile workers becoming more prevalent today, having a way to communicate efficiently is crucial. By employing the D-Link Unified Services Router, SMBs can now securely communicate with employees even when they are away from the office through its robust Virtual Private Network (VPN) capabilities. The D-Link DSR series router enables safe and seamless clientless connections to resources at the main office anywhere via a web browser using security features such as SSL VPN tunneling.

The DSR series supports Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) and next generation IPv6 to help protect current investments. This also underscores the readiness of its network infrastructure for IPv6 roll-out when the time arrives. The D-Link DSR series is able to support tunneling between IPv4 and IPv6 as well.

Compatible with IEEE 802.11n specifications, these routers enable users to experience high-speed wireless data rates with minimal 'dead spots' where little to no signal is found within coverage areas. These devices adopt cutting-edge cost-effective hardware and offer extensive Wi-Fi support. The DSR-500N supports 2.4 GHz single band IEEE 802.11b/g/n with 2x3 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology, while the DSR-1000N supports 2.4/5 GHz configurable dual band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n with 2x3 MIMO technology.

The D-Link Unified Services Router DSR series comes integrated with four gigabit ports each, which enable the sharing of multiple devices in the office network. With USB SharePort technology, sharing of printer and portable storage is as simple as plugging a port.

Besides supporting dual-WAN connections, the DSR-1000N also offers 3G WAN redundancy, outbound load balancing, physical traffic failover, and route failover. All these features lower the risk of data loss caused by Internet disconnections to provide always-on connection.
