Robustel have announced the launch of their R5020 5G Router Model for the M2M / IoT marketplace.
This new 5G Router will add to the Robustel family of LTE 4G Routers, building upon their robust and reliable design framework, but now with the addition of a high speed, embedded 5G Modem. The Robustel 5G Router will be available in Q4 2020 and is aimed at the expanding 5G Mobile Broadband Internet marketplace. The Robustel R5020 M2M 5G router can provide high speed 5G Internet for offices and also homeworkers making this 5G router ideal for 5G office broadband or homeworker 5G connectivity. The R5020 5G Router is also a great solution for 5G backup for leased lines or other wired Internet Broadband services and will be a great addition to the Robustel line-up of M2M 4G Routers such as the Robustel R1510 M2M 4G Router.
Robustel R5020 5G Router
The Robustel R5020 5G Router is powered by Robustel’s proprietary operating system RobustOS, a Linux-based OS with a clean, simple and modular user experience developed by Robustel specifically for use in Robustel devices. With additional CPU capabilities compared to traditional LTE routers the R5020 also offers the ability for customers to perform more in-depth EDGE computing tasks through writing applications using the RobustOS Software Development Kit (SDK).
With its on-board smarts, compact size and a competitive price point, the R5020 is the perfect solution for In-vehicle Applications, Fixed-Line Replacement and Failover with minimal configuration or engineering requirements. With its industrial interfaces the R5020 also opens doors for IoT applications in manufacturing, agriculture, security and smart cities that need high speed internet access.
KEY FEATURES of R5020
- Global 5G/4G/3G cellular coverage
- Supports Ethernet, Wi-fi and 4G/5G internet with WAN-failover
- Fully programmable Operating System with a well documented SDK
- Multiple industry standard VPN options available including DMVPN & IPSEC
- GNSS/GPS & ignition sensing for in-vehicle applications
- Powerful device management and monitoring functions through RCMS
- Industrial strength metal enclosure with a small footprint – DIN-rail + wall mount options

R5020 Router FAQ
Which SIM Cards work with the Roubustel R5020 5G Router?
The R5020 contains an embedded 5G modem that will work with all global 5G network bands, as well as being backwards compatible with all UK 4G and 3G networks. This means that you can use a standard 5G SIM Card from any network and the R5020 router will provide a high speed 5G connection with speeds dependant upon the network provider and other factors such as network capacity, distance to base station and network load at peak times. If you need remote access to your R5020 router, for example when using this router in an M2M application for remote management or monitoring then we recommend that you use a Fixed IP SIM Card. There are several providers of Fixed IP SIM Cards and many of these will offer 5G Fixed IP SIM Cards.
If you are using the R5020 router for CCTV then a combination of the Robustel 5G router and a 5G Fixed IP SIM card will provide a high speed, reliable 5G CCTV Internet service for easy remote access to your CCTV equipment and easy use of port forwarding, but remember if using a Fixed IP SIM Card with a public IP address then you should take care to correctly configure both the security settings in the router and also the connected CCTV NVR, IP camper equipment to prevent unauthorised access.
What is the price for the R5020 Router?
Robustel have not yet announced pricing, but have advised that it will be very competitively priced and will be a direct competitor to the new Teltonika 5G Router when it is launched.
