Proroute – New M2M 3G Router Storms Ahead Of Competition

Since it’s launch in September 2012, the Proroute range of M2M 3G Routers have taken the UK market by storm.  Offering an industrial grade, M2M 3G router using the latest high speed HSPA+ embedded modem technology the Proroute H685 and H700 3G Routers have won the hearts and minds of both the security and energy services marketplaces as the premium 3G router to provide 3G wireless Broadband connectivity for remote management and monitoring of equipment at remote sites using high speed 3G mobile broadband services.

The cost of using 3G compared to traditional landline broadband is now more competitive in many instances and the Proroute 3G routers provide a convenient and reliable 3G service for Machine To Machine (M2M) communications with advanced keep alive features and a specification list making it suitable for 99% of applications the Proroute M2M 3G Routers are the ideal choice for your 3G remote connectivity services for small and large projects alike.

Already used in over 36,000 installations worldwide, the Proroute M2M range of industrial grade 3G routers have been providing robust, reliable M2M connectivity for over six years and with the latest HSPA+ technology offering download speeds of up to 21Mbps and upload speeds up to 5.76Mbps these 3G routers offer a real alternative towired broadband services.

The Proroute H685 series router provides a single HSPA+ Module withan  RJ45 Ethernet port for wired LAN connectivity as well as a WAN Port to enable the router to be used as a failover 3G router.  Also inlcuded inside this robist metal casing that protects the router in the harshest of environments is built-in WiFi offering high speed N Wireless as well as 802.11b/g wireless connectivity, Keep Alive features to ensure a permanent 3G connection, firewall and port forwarding options to suit most installations as well as wide ranging temperature and voltage specifications to ensure compatibility and functionality in the majority of applications.

The manufacturers of the Proroute 3G routers are so confident in their reliability that they offer an advance replacement warranty free of charge for all Proroute 3G routers in the UK.  This warranty covers hardware failure to ensure that customers and users of Proroute routers provide the best levels of customer service and satisfaction from a company that wants to deliver the same reliability and service as it’s products.

CCTV in a High Speed Mobile World

What is the future for Close Circuit TV with Mobile Broadband speeds reaching Fixed Broadband speeds in the near future?

Video is such a major part of our lives that we tend to take it for granted when it is all around us from the TVs in our homes to Youtube on our PCs and Smart Phones. But the expansion in speed in the Mobile world, 3G, UMTS, HSPA and 4G services is starting to open up possibilities that have never before been practical or even feasible.

Security services for example – On every corner in most major European cities you will find CCTV cameras but it is not so practical to put these systems into certain areas that would seriously benefit from monitoring and surveillance. High risk or secluded areas such as bus stops, remote storage, public vehicles and rural locations where data network availability has been limited or not even present. Wide area Broadband services now open up the possibility of providing a host of security services to remote locations and to bring back live video capture. Often legacy systems require local storage and some form of manual intervention to recover recordings. If a theft or attack is recorded the owner or authorities need to play catch up after the event to piece together the evidence. Not withstanding that the mobile operators need to offer suitable data packages for these applications it is certainly an application waiting for the service and there is a plethora of High Speed 4G CPE waiting to connect these networks. Broadband is no longer the exclusive domain of the fixed operators! There a host of legacy systems awaiting retrofit and more new systems to install which, too date, have been impractical to deploy. 4G is going to be a major contributor to making these systems a success.
