What TP Link TL-ER6020 Does:
The TL-ER6020 SafeStream Gigabit Multi-WAN VPN Router from TP-Link boasts excellent data processing capabilities and an array of powerful functions, suching as IPsec/PPTP/L2TP VPN, Load Balance, Access Control, DoS Defense and Bandwidth Control. The TL-ER6020 is excellent for small and medium businesses, together with hotels and other settings where a large amount of users need a stable, secure connection.
The TL-ER6020 supports pass-through traffic together with multiple VPN protocols including IPsec, PPTP and L2TP in Client/Server mode. It also features built-in VPN engine hardware, permitting the router to support and manage up to 50 LAN-to-LAN/Client-to-LAN IPsec VPN connections. Advanced VPN features include DES/3DES/AES128/ AES192/AES256 encryption, MD5/SHA1 authentication, and Main/Aggressive negotiation modes.
With a 64-bit dual core network processor, TL-ER6020 is able to handle multiple tasks while maintaining outstanding performance.
Intelligent Bandwidth Allocation
The TL-ER6020 features 2 WAN ports, 2 LAN ports and 1 LAN/DMZ port, permitting one device to meet multiple requirements. Intelligent Load Balancing distributes data streams depend on the bandwidth proportion of each WAN port to make the most of multi-line broadband. IP-based Bandwidth Control and Session Limit functions give network administrators the power to flexibly manage how their bandwidth is used.
TP Link TL-ER6020 VPN Router Reviews:
The TL-ER6020 supports as much as 16 L2TP tunnels, 16 PPTP tunnels and 50 IPsec tunnels. It can function as a server or client for L2TP and PPTP. As a server, remote clients can link via L2TP and PPTP tunnels. As a client, the TL-ER6020 can connect to other L2TP or PPTP servers.
TP-LINK rates the TL-ER6020 capable of 80 Mbps for IPsec VPN throughput with 3DES encryption. As you can As you know, I measured IPsec 3DES throughput on the TL-ER6020 at ~ 40 Mbps in both directions. TP-LINK addresses throughput testing in their FAQ section, stating varying results are based on test tool and protocol (TCP vs. UDP) differences. Nevertheless, iperf based TCP testing for IPsec throughput is a rather good indicator of real world performance.
PPTP throughput on the TL-ER6020 is head and shoulders above the other routers in the chart at 30 Mbps+. PPTP tunnels have a lot of utility since the client software is simple to set up and is included with all Windows versions along with most smart phones including things like the iPhone and Android devices.
Routing throughput was measured running 1.0.0 Build 20120807 Rel.34348 firmware, using our router test process. The TL-ER6020’s throughput numbers come pretty close to TP-LINK’s product ratings of 180 Mbps NAT throughput and 30,000 concurrent sessions.
We measured WAN-LAN throughput at 162 Mbps, LAN-WAN throughput at 157 Mbps, total throughput at 162 Mbps and maximum connections at 29,990. These numbers put the TL-ER6020 above the majority of the other VPN routers I’ve tested
