When is Adtran going to update the 3100 series?

Jump to solution

When is Adtran going to update or refresh the 3100 series to all for more throughput? The 3120 should be updated to include all Gig-e ports. The 3130 should be updated to include VDSL2.

There is a need for a low cost small business five port router. Then 3100 today only supports about 15 Mbps of bandwidth, and most home internet cable connections are faster than that! Adtran is ahead of the game with the VQM feature built into this series, but without it we would go with Mikrotik, Cisco, or other similarly priced small business routers that support more bandwidth for the same price.

vmaxdawg is correct.

Adtran will be coming out with the NV3140 and NV3148 in 2014.

The NV3140 will have 3 routed GigE ports (2 SFP/copper combo ports + 1 copper only port), 1 USB interface, and a craft port.

The NV3148 will have 2 routed GigE ports (1 SFP/copper combo port + 1 copper only port), an 8 port 10/100/1000 managed switch, 1 USB interface, a craft port, POE option, and possibly a WiFi option.

Both will easily route at 100Mbps with FW/NAT/Qos/Shaping.

Hope this helps.

We have about 10 of the 3120's in service pushing 25 Mbps on Bonded DSL. We were getting about 15 Mbps tops, and then we started to add the IP ffe command and that pushed it to 25 Mbps. So far it has worked. I'm told that 25 Mbps is the absolute top end of the 3120's. You might try adding IP ffe to your interfaces. In our case we added IP ffe to the PPP 1 and vlan 1 interfaces. In our lab (close to the CO) we are pushing 27 Mbps. Wahoo!!!!!

My people at Adtran indicated that a newer device, NetVanta 3140 I think, will be coming out I think Q1 2014.  It will have Gigabit ports, USB for 4G failover connection and a much faster processor.  No PoE though.  I've been begging them for a SOHO router such as the 3120 with one or two hot PoE ports for years, but I don't think it will ever happen.

Until then, I use the 3448 where throughput is an issue.  Way more expensive, but 3448 is a workhorse.

Hi jimboy, I thought that RapidRoute is enabled by default.  Does it need to be enabled on specific interfaces, or did you use ip ffe to increase the maximum entries value?  I'm interested to know what commands you ran.

Hi Mick,

My understanding is that the IP ffe command isn’t on by
default, unless something has changed with a new firmware upgrade recently. You
can do a “show Ip ffe” on the command line and see the results.  I have a few bookmarks on the Adtran site; I’ll
link to those here in a few minutes. About a year ago when we set up the first
3120 with bonded 25M service we could only get about 15M. A quick call to
Adtran and the Tec turned on Ip ffe and bingo…25M! We have used it ever
since.

Do a search on this Support Community site  for: "when should you use IP ffe?" The info there is great!

I just wanted to add a note to what mentioned. As of R10.4, all AOS devices that support FFE will have it turned on by default.

Thanks,

Thank you both,

This is what my 3120 displays (with the default value for MaxEntries):

======================================

#show ip ffe summary

Exceptions: 0/128/0 (current/max/drops)

Ingress                  MaxEntries    Entries       Hits     Misses      Drops

-------                  ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ----------

vlan 1                         4096          2    3005163     279266          0

ppp 1                          4096          1    1702427     114781          0

                         ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ----------

                  Global      16384          3    4707590     394047          0

======================================

Do I need to increase the 4096 value - how would I know if I do?

PS.  The question is academic at the moment, because my network does not have high speed ADSL yet, but hope that one day it will.

What is the estimated bandwidth this 3140/3148 is expected to be able to handle on an IPSEC tunnel?

Do we have any update on when these will be released? We need this for many applications!

Q2 for the NV3140 and we are shooting for Q4 for the NV3148.

We've modified the specs on the NV3140 and made all 3 GigE ports copper to reduce cost and keep this product in a price range competitive with other ethernet only routers on the market.

Although we haven't put the NV3140 through official lab testing, we expect it to push 50Mbps for IPSec applications.
