Product Overview

Dual Gigabit WAN Load Balancer

The Vigor 2927ax is a Dual-Ethernet WAN router featuring VPN, advanced routing features, firewall, content filtering, bandwidth management and more. It offers high throughput with Load Balancing and Failover connectivity, suitable for handling Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) and Gigabit Internet connections. Offering up to 950Mbps per-WAN of Hardware Accelerated throughput while retaining its full feature set.

With Wi-Fi 6 AX3000 wireless, it provides ultra fast and efficient wireless coverage, to your network's computers and devices. In addition, the router can connect to Wireless networks for Internet access, allowing it to make use of Mobile Hotspot wireless connections and nearby wireless networks, where for instance a neighbour's wireless network could provide an emergency backup connection.


Mesh Wireless

The Vigor 2927 'ax' wireless routers can be used as part of DrayTek's Mesh wireless system, allowing the router to work as the Mesh Root, providing Internet access and management of Mesh VigorAPs directly, all without installing network cabling.

VLANs are also bridged across Mesh wireless, so if you have multiple SSIDs or separate network segments, those can also work across Mesh with DrayTek's wireless routers and VigorAPs.

For cabled wireless networks, the router's Central AP Management greatly reduces installation time and provides an easy way to manage VigorAPs, including auto-provisioning, so new VigorAPs are configured by the router when they're plugged into the router's network.


Wi-Fi 6 - AX3000 Performance

The Vigor 2927ax features ultra-fast and highly efficient Wi-Fi 6, or 802.11ax. OFDMA allows the router to send to more than one device at a time, splitting up wireless frequency into blocks, assigning more to users that need more e.g. video data, less to users that need less e.g. VoIP calls, then sending all at once. Which ensures all users have less of a wait, greatly improving efficiency. It allows the router to effectively and responsively, serve more wireless clients.


Ideal VPN Router for SMB

A feature central to DrayTek routers is its VPN (Virtual Private Networking) capabilities. A VPN enables you to link remote offices and branch offices back to HQ, or home-based/mobile teleworkers back to your office.

The Vigor 2927 is an ideal VPN router, with 300 Mbps standard IPsec VPN throughput and up to 50 concurrently active VPN tunnels.

With IPsec Hardware Acceleration for up to 16 VPN tunnels, performance increases up to 800 Mbps. Allowing securely encrypted tunnels between sites to make full use of high speed Internet connections.

It supports all common industry standard VPN protocols, for it to connect to VPN services, link remote offices and handle connections from all types of VPN clients. Supporting IPsec IKEv1 & IKEv2 protocols with EAP and XAuth authentication, DrayTek's SSL VPN and L2TP for both LAN to LAN and Dial-In teleworker VPNs. In addition, teleworkers can connect to the router with OpenVPN.

User management for Dial-In Teleworkers is managed through the router's web interface, with mOTP 2-factor authentication available for IPsec, L2TP and SSL VPN Teleworker connections. Alternatively, authentication for Dial-In Teleworker connections can be forwarded to your Active Directory (LDAP) or RADIUS or TACACS+ server.


Connect VPNs from Behind NAT with DrayTek's VPN Matcher


A typical requirement for connecting a VPN tunnel between two points is that the VPN server must be directly accessible on the public Internet. Sometimes this can be achieved with NAT Port Forwarding if the router is located behind another router, but if the router is connected to 4G Mobile Broadband or is behind Carrier-Grade NAT (CG-NAT), connecting to that VPN server may be impossible.

DrayTek's new VPN Matcher service helps DrayTek routers behind NAT to allow Dial-In Teleworkers to connect, or connect two DrayTek VPN routers that are behind NAT and could not normally establish a VPN tunnel.


Connecting Remote Sites with LAN to LAN VPN

Supporting up to 50 concurrently active VPN tunnels, the Vigor 2927 series is ideal for connecting multiple sites or home offices together with fast and secure IPsec VPN tunnels.

Once connected, they have access to your office/remote resources through a secure encrypted tunnel allowing remote desktop, file sharing and seamless access to other resources and devices.


DrayTek SSL VPN for Dial-In Teleworkers & LAN to LAN

The Vigor 2927 supports up to 25 active DrayTek SSL VPN tunnel connections. These are encrypted tunnels linking your teleworkers or remote DrayTek Vigor routers back to your main office using SSL/TLS technology - the same encryption that you use for secure web sites such as your bank.

Teleworkers can easily create a secure SSL VPN tunnel to the DrayTek Vigor 2927 using the free DrayTek Smart VPN Client app. Available for Windows, macOS, Apple iOS (iPad, iPhone) and Android devices.


5+1 Gigabit LAN Ports with VLANs

The Vigor 2927 series provides up to 6 Gigabit LAN ports for wired links to Computers, Servers and Network Attached Storage.

With 5 dedicated LAN ports and one flexible LAN/WAN port, the Vigor 2927 can connect up to 6 devices directly with a single Ethernet WAN configuration, or 5 devices with a dual Ethernet WAN configuration.

With Multiple LAN subnets and VLANs, the Vigor 2927 can manage up to 8 separate networks. For instance, an internal network with a separate network for Guests to use, completely separate from the private network. Each network with its own Content Filtering, Firewall, Quality of Service and Route Policy applied.

The router has full support for 802.1Q VLAN tagging, so that these subnets can be passed to other devices that support VLAN tags, such as the DrayTek VigorSwitch G1080 8-port switch, for additional network ports.

The Wireless LAN also links to these VLANs, making the same Guest & Private networks possible simply using different wireless SSIDs. Or connect up a DrayTek VigorAP wireless access point, such as the VigorAP 903 to do the same, spanning the router's own wireless and any connected wireless APs.


Designed for Central Management

The Vigor 2927 series (along with most other DrayTek routers, Access points and switches) can be centrally managed by our VigorACS central management platform.

This scalable solution provides visibility, control and reporting of your entire DrayTek product estate, ideal for dealers/SIs managing customers' devices or any user who wants to know what's going on with their devices. VigorACS also provides features like automated/bulk firmware updates, VPN management and alarms for connectivity or other issues.


Robust & Comprehensive IPv4 / IPv6 Firewall

Security is always taken seriously with DrayTek routers. The firewall protects against attacks including DoS (Denial of Service) attacks, IP-based attacks and access by unauthorised remote systems. Wireless, Ethernet and VPN are also protected by various protection systems.

The DrayTek object-based firewall enables you to create combinations of Firewall rules and Content Filtering to suit a home or small office environment, applying Content Filtering to the whole network, only specified devices or just the network that guests can connect to.

The Vigor 2927 supports both IPv4 and IPv6 with Dual-Stack IPv4/IPv6. Advanced networking features, such as the object-based Firewall, Quality of Service, Content Filtering and VLANs support both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.


Web Content Filtering with DNS Filter

The content control features of the Vigor 2927 allow you to set restrictions on web site access, blocking download of certain file or data types, blocking specific web sites with whitelists or blacklists, blocking IM/P2P applications or other potentially harmful or wasteful content. Restrictions can be per user, per PC or universal and according to time schedules.

Content filtering can also block sites using HTTPS/SSL where URLs are encrypted (and normal routers cannot block).

Using the GlobalView service, you can block whole categories of web sites (e.g. gambling, adult sites etc.), subject to an annual subscription, which is continuously updated with new or changed site categorisations or sites which have become compromised (such as infected with Malware). A free 30-day trial is included with your new router.


DrayDDNS - DrayTek Dynamic DNS Address

DrayTek provides a free Dynamic DNS address to each Vigor 2927 router, allowing you to link the router's current IP address to a memorable "drayddns.com" hostname, such as "vigor2927.drayddns.com".

This address automatically updates whenever the Internet connection's IP changes, so if one WAN’s IP address allocation is dynamic, or the IP changes when switching from the primary WAN connection to a backup, you can easily locate and access your Vigor 2927 router. Just use the hostname to access the router's VPN services, management and any other services you have made accessible through the router.

The Vigor 2927 can also authenticate your DrayDDNS hostname with free SSL/TLS certificates provided by LetsEncrypt, the router manages and automates the certificate process. Keeping the certificate up to date and ready for use with SSL VPN and other services.


High Availability - Hardware Failover

For even greater resilience, the Vigor 2927 series provides High Availability (HA), with both a primary and secondary router able to provide connectivity to your network and subnets.

In the event of the primary unit failing, the secondary unit will take its place on the network, automatically switching over to resume Internet, routing and VPN connectivity with no intervention required. This can remove the possibility of a single point of failure within your routers.

With Config Sync, the two routers are managed as a single unit, so that any changes made to the primary router will automatically propagate to the secondary router, ensuring it’s ready to take over at any time.


Manage Guest WiFi with Hotspot Web Portal

DrayTek routers make it easy to manage Guest Wireless with Hotspot Web Portal. The fully customisable captive portal can apply to both the router's wireless networks and LAN interfaces, for use with wireless access points.

Authentication can be handled by Google/Facebook or an external web Portal service such as Purple WiFi with RADIUS.

Upon connecting to the wireless network, users are presented with your company's branding and information. From there, depending on what you've set, they can simply click-through, provide their details or enter a PIN with Voucher generated by the router.

Once connected, the router can allow access until a user reaches their quota limit of time connected or bandwidth used.


Quality of Service & Bandwidth Control

Prioritise latency-sensitive applications on your network with Quality of Service.

App QoS simplifies setting up Quality of Service significantly, simply select which applications or services to prioritise, such as Zoom and Skype.

Use 4 separate queues to give priority to servers & PCs (IP address), services such as VoIP or DNS, or packet tagging used by IP phones with 802.1p and DSCP support

Auto Voice VLAN allows the router to automatically prioritise VoIP calls as they pass through the router without additional configuration.

Control throughput with Bandwidth Limit, by setting speed limits for all clients individually, groups of IPs, or a shared bandwidth limit for a whole subnet, such as a Guest network.


Central AP & Switch Management

The Vigor 2927 manages DrayTek VigorAP access points and VigorSwitch switches connected locally to the router. This enables you to centrally control, manage and administer multiple AP & Switch devices installed around your building/campus from just the one router.
