DrayTek (Chinese: 居易科技; pinyin: Jūyì Kējì) is a manufacturer of broadband CPE (Customer Premises Equipment), including firewalls, VPN devices, routers and wireless LAN devices. The company was founded in 1997. The earliest products included ISDN based solutions, the first being the ISDN Vigor128, a USB terminal adaptor for Windows and Mac OS. This was followed by the ISDN Vigor204 ISDN terminal adaptor/PBX and Vigor2000, our first router. The head office is located in Hsinchu, Taiwan with regional offices and distributors worldwide.

DrayTek was one of the first manufacturers to bring VPN technology to low cost routers, helping with the emergence of viable teleworking. In 2004, DrayTek released the first of their VoIP (Voice-Over-IP) products. In 2006, new products aimed at enterprises debuted, including larger scale firewalls and Unified Threat Management (UTM) firewalls products however the UTM Firewalls did not sell in sufficient volume and the UTM products ceased development and production.

DrayTek's product line offers business and consumer DSL modems with support for the PPPoA standard compared to the more the widely supported PPPoE for use with full-featured home routers and home computers without more expensive ATM hardware. PPPoA is used primarily in the UK for ADSL lines. Most Vigor routers provide a virtual private network (VPN) feature, provides LAN-to-LAN and Remote-Dial-In Connections. In 2011, DrayTek embedded SSL VPN facilities into VigorRouter Series.

DrayTek was gone IPO on the Taiwan Stock Exchange in 2003.

Vigor 2200USB[edit]

DrayTek released the Vigor2200USB router in the UK in 2002, a unique router for ADSL, the only router able to be connected to BT's newly launched USB-modem based ADSL service. The router did not incorporate a modem, but allowed certain specified USB ADSL modems to be connected; at the time many Internet Service Providers required their USB modems to be used rather than allowing connection of ADSL equipment directly to the telephone line ("wires-only" service). The product was devised in the UK by SEG Communications and developed by DrayTek engineers. This was the only router supporting a separate USB modem, and was the only router compatible with BT's new USB ADSL service. These factors made it very popular and firmly established DrayTek as a key player in the broadband Internet hardware market in the UK.[1]

BT MCT SIN 498 Compliance[edit]

For the UK market, DrayTek were granted MCT approval for their VDSL2 products in 2015, a mandatory requirement for products connected to the UK network operated by BT Openreach (used by most ISPs).
