BiPAC 8920NZ

Dual-SIM 3G/4G LTE Embedded V/ADSL2+ Wireless-N VPNFirewall Router

bipac-8920nz-hThe BiPAC8920NZ, triple-WAN 3G/LTE/VDSL&ADSL2+ firewall router is integrated with the 802.11n Wireless Access Point and 4-portgiga switch. It is a cutting-edge networking product for SOHO and office users. Uniquely, the router allows users to directly insert3G/4GLTE SIM card into its built-in SIM slots instead of requiring external USB modems. This design will avoid compatibility issues of many different 3G/LTE USB modems. With the increasing popularity of the 3G/4GLTE standard, communication via the BiPAC8920NZ is becoming more convenient and widely available – enabling users to use 3G/4GLTE, UMTS, EDGE, GPRS, or GSM Internet connection, making downstream rates of up to 100Mbps possible. Users can watch movies, download music or access e-mail wherever a 3G/4G LTE connection is available.

3G/4G LTE Mobility and Always-On Connection
The BiPAC8920NZ router allows you to insert 3G/4G LTE SIM card to its built-in SIM slots, enabling you to use a 3G/4G LTE Internet connection, which makes downstream rates of up to 100Mbps*3 possible. With the increasing popularity of the 3G/4GLTE standard, communication via the BiPAC8920NZ is becoming more convenient and widely available – allowing you to watch movies, download music on the road, or access e-mail no matter where you are. You can even share your Internet connection with others, no matter if you’re in a meeting, or speeding across the country on a train. The BiPAC8920NZ will then automatically reconnect to the ADSL connection when it’s restored, reducing connection costs. These features are perfect for office situations where the constant connection is paramount.

Secure VPN Connections
The BiPAC8920NZ supports embedded IPSec VPN (Virtual Private Network) protocols, allowing users to establish encrypted private connections of up to 16 simultaneous tunnels over the Internet. You can access your corporate Intranet and transmit sensitive data between branch offices and remote sites anytime; even when you are out of office, thus enhancing productivity.

Smooth, Responsive Net Connection
The quality of Service (QoS) gives user full control over outgoing data traffic. Priority can be assigned by the router to ensure that important transmissions like gaming packets, VoIP calls or IPTV/streaming content pass through the router at lightning speed, even when there is heavy Internet traffic. The speed of different types of outgoing data passing through the router is also controlled to ensure that users do not saturate bandwidth with their browsing activities.

Optimal Wireless Speeds and Coverage
With an integrated 802.11n Wireless Access Point, the router delivers up to 6 times the speed and 3 times the wireless coverage of an 802.11b/g network device. It supports data rates of up to 300Mbp.It is also backward compatible with 802.11b/g clients. The Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK) and Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) features enhance the level of transmission security and access control over Wireless LAN. The router also supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) standard, allowing users to establish a secure wireless network by simply pushing a button. If the network requires wider coverage, the built-in Wireless Distribution System (WDS) repeater function allows users to expand the wireless network without the need for any external wires or cables.

I cannot connect NBN (FTTN/FTTB) service

Fibre to the node or FTTN is where fibre runs to a distribution point in your neighborhood. Then the phone line to your home is used to provide high speed internet.

For FTTN, you need VDSL2 modem.

Important set-up note:

Layer2 Interface: 2 transfer mode, ATM (ADSL) or PTM (VDSL).

For FTTN (VDSL) connection, please configure the WAN interface as:

Quick Start->WAN Interface->Layer2 Interface->PTM then click continue.


Configuration–>WAN service–> Add–>Layer 2 Interface –>PTM

How do I connect 8920NZ to FTTP, HFC, Satellite NBN and Sky Muster service NBN?

EWAN (the 5th port Giga Ethernet) port of 8900series and 8700series can be configured as a WAN interface for other types of NBN connectivity such as FTTP, HFC, Satellite NBN and Sky Muster Service NBN.

You need an Ethernet cable to connect your NBN service provider’s Modem/connection box (via LAN port/UNI-D port) and Billion 8900series or 8700series (via EWAN Port) and set it up for EWAN mode and IP over Ethernet IPOE type.

Your service provider will inform you which UNI-D port to use.
