DrayTek Interview – A Brief Look Inside a Router Manufacturer
Saturday, July 25th, 2020 (12:01 am)
Looks like ISPreview had a chat with DrayTeK (UK) last Saturday,
Taiwan-based network manufacturer DrayTek is a familiar name in the UK broadband ISP world. Since 1997 they’ve been busy building various routers, switches, access points and modems. Suffice to say that we were keen to get their thoughts on the current market for such devices, as well as their plans for the future.
We often talk about routers on these pages because they’re such a vital part of modern broadband services for both consumers and businesses. At the same time some models can also suffer problems with limited long-term support, performance and not to mention security.
Mercifully DrayTek, which started out by building ISDN terminal adaptors, are often said to be one of the better manufacturers. The company’s origins started out with ISDN terminal adaptors and routers. “Our first ADSL based product was the Vigor 2200USB … from there DSL based products became a mainstay of our portfolio, but today we cater for many connection types and speeds,” said Richard Sutherland, DrayTek’s Account Director for the UK and Ireland, as part of our interview.
Richard himself has been involved in the industry from the early days of dialup modems and has over 22 years of experience under his belt, which means that he is somebody with a fairly good insight into both the current and future markets for such equipment. We don’t often get a chance to talk with router manufactures and so were grateful to be able to fire a few questions his way.
In a completely sane world, madness is the only freedom (J.G.Ballard).
