Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Trendnet TEW 718BR

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has port filtering
Trendnet TEW 718BR

Port filtering is a type of access control where access to certain Internet service are assigned to users using port numbers. This can increase security as well as restricting Internet usage.

3.Has a static IP address
Trendnet TEW 718BR

Static IP addresses remain consistent on each connection. This means the IP address can be used to allow remote access/configuration. Most home devices have a dynamic IP address, whereas larger companies usually use a static IP address.

4.Has a URL filter
Trendnet TEW 718BR

URL filters are particularly useful if you want to allow different web access depending on the time of day, for instance allowing employees to use personal email outside of working hours.

5.Has MAC address filtering
Trendnet TEW 718BR

This is a security feature in which network access is granted to devices based on their unique MAC address. It can provide increased security, but it can be a risk if the user loses the device.

6.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
Trendnet TEW 718BR

With NAT you can use one IP address, e.g. that of the router, for a network of devices. It can increase security and make it easier to make changes to your internal network.

Features

1.Has QoS
Trendnet TEW 718BR

With (QoS) Quality of Service, you can optimise performance by deciding which traffic to prioritise when a bottleneck occurs. You can decide which traffic is important based on things like IP address and type of Internet service.

2.Has dynamic routing
Trendnet TEW 718BR

Dynamic routing is useful if you need to configure several routers, as they can automatically find network destinations and best routes, as well as sharing information between routers. They can reroute automatically if there is a fault somewhere.

3.Network Time Protocol enabled
Trendnet TEW 718BR

With Network Time Protocol (NTP) you can ensure that devices across a network display the exact same time and date, using UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).

4.IPv6 enabled
Trendnet TEW 718BR

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol. IPv6 operates as a separate network to IPv4, and has the capacity for more IP addresses and more features.

5.Has Universal Plug n Play
Trendnet TEW 718BR

Universal Plug n Play (UPnP) is a set of networking protocols that permits networked devices, such as PCs, printers, Internet gateways, Wi-Fi access points and mobile devices to find each other and exchange information on the network.

6.power consumption operation

5W
