6540-Industrial Broadband Router with V.DSL, ADSL, 4G, Fibre

Industrial DSL Fibre PoE Router 

6540Industrial DSL 4G Gateway Router

6540 DIN Rail Mounting

The Case Communications 6540  Industrial DSL, Fibre, PoE Router supports Fibre, V.DSL, ADSL.


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 an standard upstream rate of 1.4Mbps, furthermore an upstream rate of 3.3Mbps can be achieved using Annex M.


Case Communications 6540- Industrial DSL Fibre PoE Router supports V.DSL2 (Very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line 2) ( also known as (FTTC) Fibre to the Cabinet) ( G.993.2).

VDSL2 has an upstream data rate of 20 Mbps and a down-link data rate up to 80 Mbps.

Power Over Ethernet Ports

The Router is equipped with 4 x 10/100Mbps PoE / PoE+ ports and has the ability to transmit upstream at 20Mbps.

This makes the 6540 ideal for high bandwidth applications such as IPTV,   CCTV and monitoring in real time as well as Industrial Applications.

Dual Gigabit Fibre

The Case Communications Industrial 6540 Router supports Dual Mini GBIC Gigabit Fibre (SFP) ports allowing the 6540 to be used on Fibre networks or to attach local devices via Fibre. Using SFP’s means ranges of hundreds of Kilometres can be  reached.

Optional 4G Module

It also has the option to support back up via a smart Cellular LTE / 4G SIM to provide alternate routes for maximum resilience, and most importantly allow routing by application.

 Designed to operate reliably in harsh conditions

The 6540 Industrial Router has been designed from the ground up to operate reliably for mission critical applications in harsh conditions without the use of fans.

Rack and DIN Rail Mounted

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.

Last Gasp Facility

Because the 6540  Router is equipped with a last gasp facility it can send out an SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol )  Trap in the event of a power failure.

Internal Ethernet Switch

The Case 6540 also has a built in Ethernet switch with 4 x 10/100Mbps PoE  ports and two 10/100/1000Mbps Mini GBIC Ports. Furthermore the 6540 also has the ability to provide PoE / PoE+ to attached devices such as Pan and Tilt CCTV.


The Case Communications 6540 has high levels of security supporting tunnelling protocols such as IP Sec and GRE Tunnelling. Encryption options include AES, and 3DES .


The 6540 has the ability to use the SHA 2 encryption algorithms The SHA-2 family consists of six hash functions with digests (hash values) that are 224, 256, 384 or 512 bits: SHA-224, SHA 256, SHA-384, SHA-512, SHA 512/224,SHA0512 / 256 .

VLAN Tagging

VLAN Tagging is supported on the 6540, allowing VLAN Tags to be taken over the network to a remote subnet.


The router is managed locally or remotely via a Browser, SNMP V1/V2/V3 or via a Command Line Interface (CLI).


The 6540 Router 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.
