DrayTek Routers Firewall, NAT, VPN Performance Comparison

In this post we compare Firewall, NAT, VPN(PPTP, L2TP, L2TP over IPsec, SSL, IPsec) Performance for DrayTek’s Routers

DrayTek Routers are divided into two OS types

1. Vigor Router (OS: DrayOS): Vigor 2120/2912/2925/2926/2952/3220 series

2. Vigor Linux Router (OS: Linux): Vigor 2960/3900 series

==============================

The Performance/Throughput of Firewall/NAT

Vigor3900(1Gbits) >= Vigor2960(500Mbits) >= Vigor3220 = Vigor2952 > Vigor2926(400Mbits) > Vigor2925 > Vigor2120 > Vigor2912

==============================

DrayTek supports common VPN types such as L2TP, PPTP, IPSec (IKEv1), IPSec (IKEv2), SSL VPN, L2TP over IPSec

 

The Performance/Throughput of IPsec VPN

Vigor3900(600Mbits) > Vigor2960(200Mbits) = Vigor3220(200Mbits) = Vigor2952(200Mbits) > Vigor2926(60Mbits) > Vigor2925(60Mbits) > Vigor2120 > Vigor2912

==============================

The Best of VPN Performance/Throughput

*Vigor Router(OS: DrayOS)
L2TP > IPSec(IKEv1) > IPSec(IKEv2) > L2TP over IPSec > PPTP > SSL VPN

*Vigor Linux Router(OS: Linux)
IPSec(IKEv1) > IPSec(IKEv2) > SSL VPN > PPTP > L2TP > L2TP over IPSec
==============================

The Popular of VPN type in the company/telecom

IPSec(IKEv2) > IPSec(IKEv1) > SSL VPN > L2TP over IPSec > L2TP > PPTP

==============================

Easier to set the VPN type up for the end clients

SSL VPN > PPTP > L2TP  > L2TP over IPSec > IPSec(IKEv2) > IPSec(IKEv1)

==============================

The Best Security Strength of VPN type

SSL VPN = L2TP over IPSec > IPSec(IKEv2) >= IPSec(IKEv1) >> PPTP >> L2TP

==============================
