The Thomson Speedtouch 585 delivers high-quality ADSL in a stable, easy to use router- including 'Diskless Installation'

Easy to install
The SpeedTouch Wireless Home Install Wizard makes setting up a home wireless network as easy as Ethernet, thereby drastically reducing helpdesk calls. This unique and robust mechanism configures and secures your SpeedTouch ADSL access point and wireless network clients direct from the router- no CD required! The wizard performs comprehensive system checks before and during the installation process, and validates all user inputs, in order to guarantee the end-user a secured wireless connection (using WEP or WPA) to the Internet.

Secure
The SpeedTouch firewall guarantees users the ultimate level in network security. Through integration with Hyper-NAT, the firewall leverages all the ALGs provided in the Hyper-NAT context to minimize undesired service impact. The SpeedTouch firewall provides stateful inspection of packets, and an integrated Denial of Service (DoS) engine monitors a wide range of attack patterns, and logs potential security breaches to a local cache or remote server.

Filtering of unwanted content on the Internet also got integrated in the SpeedTouch 585(i). Three levels of content filtering are available:

  • Basic Content Filtering provides white list/blacklist based url filtering, which can be maintained locally or remotely.
  • Standard Content Filtering provides subscription based URL blocking using a network located URL database for URL classification.
  • Advanced Content Filtering is a subscription-based service that additionally provides a dynamic mechanism for classifying and blocking content.

The classification database is an on-line store of characterized URL's, which is continuously updated. The SpeedTouch Gateway queries the database for each HTTP request and decides on serving the page based on the policy assigned to the requestor.

Services
The SpeedTouch 585(i) supports a number of features, which guarantee efficient and robust delivery of multimedia
services from the core of the network right to the end user.

  • TR-37 enables auto-configuration of network bandwidth according to service needs, allowing seamless integration
    with the network's provisioning system.
  • Diffserv IPQoS
  • WiFi QoS such as WME guarantee local delivery of streamed media to the service delivery nodes
  • The optional dedication of the 5GHz spectrum to streaming media adds robustness to the WiFi delivery path.
  • Smart DNS and DHCP supports smooth introduction of media delivery nodes like Set Top Boxes, VoIP phones, etc.

FLEXIBundLE
The FLEXIBundLE architecture enables service providers to define, manage and evolve the characteristics of the service offered by the SpeedTouch to the end user. This allows a SpeedTouch 585(i) to adopt the specific features of a differentiated service offering. The basis for this architecture is an extensive multi-role, multi-user management framework that allows each individual component of the Gateway to be (de-)activated independently and remotely.

Hyper-NAT with IP pass-through
Hyper-NAT delivers absolute flexibility in managing any type of Network Address and/or Port translation, enabling seamless operation of servers on the local network. An extensive list of Application Level Gateways complete this powerful architecture to simultaneously enable services like:

  • Any-to-many IPSec,
  • L2TP and PPTP pass-through
  • IP pass-through
  • SIP, H.323, H.450, …
  • FTP, RTSP, IPv6inIPv4, Jabber, Netmeeting, Microsoft Messenger ...
