VRRP Device Redundancy Capability

If you look for a dual WAN router, chances are that you want the highest Internet reliability. For some companies, it is even a policy to avoid any single point of failure in their network, including the dual WAN or multi WAN router itself.

VRRP (or Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol) is an industry standard designed to increase the availability of gateway devices (e.g. a dual WAN router) by allowing two or more of the same device to work in an active-backup fashion.

For your next purchase, look for a vendor who is focused on this area and is producing enterprise-class products.
