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 Proroute H700 has all the same features as the H685 3g router but includes a second HSPA+ 3G Module making this dual SIM 3G router the ideal solution for mission critical applications where redundancy is required.  The Proroute H700 3G Router will failover to a second network in the event that the primary network becomes unavailable and becuase the router contains two 3G modules it can either do this with a cold start to switch to the second module and SIM card or can be configured for a Hot Start whereby both 3G module are actice at the same time allowing for a hot switch to the backup network if required ensuring the miniumum of disruption or downntime.  The H700 M2M Dual SIM 3G Router can also be configured to use both HSPA+ 3G connections at the same time using built-in load balancing, ideal for users that need additional bandwidth within a single dual SIM 3G Router.

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.

The Teltonika RUT104 boasts an impressive feature list for such a low priced, industrial grade 3G router including built-in site to site VPN functionality (IPsec, Open VPN and PPTP), Firewall and Port Forwarding features, all essential on a 3G router designed to provide remote access over the 3G network for applications such as CCTV, Digital Signage, Solar Installations and Wind Turbine management and monitoring.

Using a 3G router instead of a wired broadband service has become increasingly popular and Teltonika have seen a huge rise in demand for their 3G routers and this has led to a significant investment in a revised version of their RUT104 router including a redesigned web interface.

This router is easy to install and configure and provides a reliable 3G internet connection and with the added benefit of a Ping Reboot feature that can be configured to automatically reboot the router to re-establish a 3G connection in the event that the 3G network disconnects the device, makes the Teltonika the first choice of 3G router for high speed mobile broadband connectivity for a wide range of M2M (Machine to Machine) remote monitoring and management applications.

The rise in the use of 3G mobile broadband routers for M2M applications has been driven by the low cost of reliable 3G Routers, the availability of Fixed IP SIM cards, the falling cost of 3G connectivity and the rising cost of installing wired broadband in temporary or remote locations as well as the availability of 3G connectivity from O2, T-Mobile, Vodafone, Orange and Three across the UK.

The Teltonika RUT104 is available in the UK from Westlake Communications Ltd, a leading supplier of 3G Routers.

Share your Mobile Broadband USB Modem with a 3G Router.

Many users of Mobile Broadband simply plug their 3G USB Modem into their laptop or PC and start surfing the web.  Hoever, if they also own a WiFi iPad and want to use their mobile broadband modem for this, then they can’t.  The same applies to other laptops or WiFi products in the house.  You could invest in a MiFi unit that runs on batteries and share the connection, but for the home this might ot give the best coverage and will not allow the connection on non WiFi devices.

The 3G Router is the answer to this problem of sharing a single USB 3G Modem, simply insert the modem into the router and you can nowconnect multiple devices using a wired or wireless connection.  The Option Globesurfer X1 is a great example of this type of solution.  When you plug in your 3G Dongle it provides WiFi for mobile devices and two Ethernet ports for wired connections.  The Globesurfer X.1 also feature an additional USB port for a USB Printer or memory stick for file or printer sharing.

Another 3G Router option is using an embedded 3G Router.  This simply means that the 3G technology is already inside the router so you just insert your mobile broadband SIM card and connect your PC’s or devices using the traditional Ethernet and WiFi interfaces.  The advantage of using an embedded 3G Router is that in most cases is is easier to connect an external antenna to help improve 3G signal reception in poor signal areas.  An embedded 3G router provides a more long term solution so is ideal for a home or business user that wants to use a 3G router to replace their ADSL broadband service.  Some embedded 3G Routers include a built-in ADSL router so they can be used as a normal ADSL Broadband router and automatically fail over to 3G in trhe event that the wired broadband services become unavailable.  This is especially useful for businesses that rely on their internet connection.  In fact, the Telecom FM Dataroute router has this built in functionality and even sends the user an SMS message when the router fails over to 3G to warn that the ADSL is down so the problem can be remedied. 

One of the problems faced by long term mobile broadband connections is the factthat mobile broadband providers have a tendency to drop the connection which requires the owner of the 3G router to reboot the router to re-establish the connection.  Many embedded 3G router manufacturers have tackled this problem by inlcuding some form of automatic reboot.  In the example of the Telecom Dataroute, when used in 3G mode only it will send a ping to an IP address on the internet at set intervals and if it does not receive a reply it will assume it has been disconnected and reboot and reconnect to the mobile broadband service.  This makes this type of embedded 3G router with Ping Reboot feature very reliable for M2M applications (Machine to Machine).  For example, a CCTV company that wants to remotely monitor some cameras can install a lower cost 3G Router mobile broadbad solution instead of an ADSL service and can remotely access their CCTV equipment via the 3G network, with the peace of mind that they can ensure a reliable, long term 3g connection.  Other M2M applications include digital signage ad remote monitoring and management applications.
