The ZyXEL VPN100 is the company’s lowest tier of VPN/SD-WAN appliance that is Rack Mountable. Other options are the VPN50 (not rack mountable), VPN300 and VPN1000 (both rack mountable).

The VPN100 includes 4x Gigabit LAN, 2x WAN, 1x SFP port, 1x DB9 console port and 2x USB 3.0 ports.

Similar to other ZyWALL products, the device can also provide AP Management services, with a default of 8 managed AP’s before additional licenses are required. Up to 72 wireless access points can be managed with the VPN100, though the recommended maximum access points per group is 60. In addition, the device supports up to 10 SP350E ticket printers for those wanting to use the hospitality gateway features, such as smaller coffee shops or hotels.

Also in alignment with other ZyWALL products, there are two basic versions of the device : the base hardware version, and the UTM bundled version. The UTM bundles include options for AntiVirus, AntiSPAM, Content Filtering and Intrusion Detection and Protection and GeoFencing. The UTM features can also be purchased separately in the event that, for example, you aren’t hosting your own email server behind the firewall.

One of the key features of the ZyXEL ZyWALL products is their support of IKEv2 for both site-to-site VPNs and for road warrior or client-server vpn connections. IKEv2 configurations can be created in a variety of configurations, with PSKs, certificates, EAP and combinations thereof supported.
