The Case Communications 6540 is an Industrial Broadband Router with V.DSL, ADSL, and Fibre, with 'back-up' via a smart Cellular LTE / 4G SIM to provide alternate routes for maximum resilience, and most importantly allow routing by application.


ADSL 2+  

The 6540-Industrial V.DSL ADSL Fibre Router , supports ADSL 2+ (G.992.5) for use on existing networks, providing a maximum downline rate of 24Mbps and a standard upstream rate of 1.4Mbps, furthermore an upstream rate of 3.3Mbps can be achieved on ADSL2+ using Annex M.



Because the 6540 Industrial Broadband Router also supports V.DSL2 (Very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line 2) ( also known by British Telecomm as (FTTC) Fibre to the Cabinet) (G.993.2). In contrast to ADSL, VDSL2 has an upstream data rate of 20 Mbps and a down-link data rate up to 80 Mbps.


Power Over Ethernet Ports

The 6540 has the option to provide PoE / PoE+ on its 4 x 10/100Mbps, making the 6540 ideal for applications requiring power such as  Wireless Access Points, IP Telephony,  IPTV,   CCTV etc.


Dual Gigabit Fibre

The 6540 supports Dual Gigabit Fibre (SFP) ports allowing it to be used on Fibre networks. Each fibre port supports 1.25 Gbps, therefore with its dual Gigabit Fibre ports the 6540 can provide an aggregate rate over fibre of 2.5 Gbps. These ports can be used to support local devices or as trunks on a Fibre network.


Designed to operate reliably in harsh conditions 

Most importantly the Case Communications 6540 has been designed to operate reliably for 'mission critical applications' in harsh conditions without the use of fans. The 6540 is supplied as both a DIN Rail and, Rack mounted router, with power and all input / output on the front panel consequently making engineering support easy. The 6540 Industrial V.DSL / ADSL / Fibre Router is equipped with a last gasp facility allowing it send out an SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol )  Trap in the event of a power failure.


Developed and manufactured in the United Kingdom

The 6540 has been designed and is manufactured in the UK allowing us to add customise the router and add features to suit customers applications.



The Case Communications 6540 has high levels of security supporting tunnelling protocols such as IP Sec and GRE Tunnelling. Encryption options include AES, and 3 DES .  Furthermore  VLAN Tagging is supported, allowing VLAN Tags to be taken over the network to a remote subnet.



The 6540 Industrial Router is managed locally or remotely via a Browser, SNMP V1/V2/V3 or via a Command Line Interface (CLI). The  Browser configuration is via a user friendly menu system. The configuration files can be backed up or stored on a PC or fileserver.



The 6540 supports Multicast using PIM SM making the 6540 ideal for IP TV and CCTV Broadcast networks. Consequently as an Industrial router with Multicast support the 6540 is  ideal for CCTV and security networks.
