Draytek Experts & Technical Support

When it's all gone wrong, we're here to help

Draytek Experts

GEN has always believed that quality is key to the success of our business model, and quality is vital when it comes to infrastructure.

We became a Draytek Partner way back in 2012 when we recognised the value in this up-and-coming hardware vendor. Since then, Draytek has continued to innovate and provide high-quality, robust, and flexible networking solutions, which we supply, install, and support.

Reliability

Every company supplying, managing and supporting a significant number of units measures metrics like MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) and MTTR (Mean Time To Repair) to ensure that they are able to meet their reliability targets.

Draytek continuously exceeds our expectations on both metrics, and we trust their hardware to maintain our reputation as the number one provider of top-tier connectivity solutions.

This is why we deploy Draytek routers on every single connectivity solution we provide, as standard regardless of the cost.

Flexibility

DrayTek occasionally faces undue criticism regarding the complexity of configuring their equipment compared to more budget-friendly brands like NetGear. While it is true that DrayTek devices may require a steeper learning curve, this complexity is a testament to their advanced capabilities and robust feature set. With our decades of experience with Draytek firmware, we consistently find that DrayTek equipment can be tailored precisely to meet our customers' needs, whatever they may be. Their devices perform reliably and efficiently, day in and day out, providing a level of customisation and control that cheaper alternatives simply cannot match.

Security

It is perplexing why so many companies entrust the security of their network and business to an inexpensive Chinese router provided by their ISP. The most vulnerable point in any network is the boundary between the company's local network and the vast expanse of the internet.

Once a router is compromised, the entire local network becomes an open target for attacks, which is absolutely unacceptable. Draytek offers a robust and fully stateful firewall, even in their entry-level routers, allowing the creation of complex rules to ensure that only legitimate traffic is allowed through while malicious traffic is blocked. We have unwavering confidence in Draytek to safeguard our customers. Our remote monitoring system collects firewall logs from all our deployed Draytek routers and feeds this data into our Network Operations Centre (NOC) for real-time analysis.
