EC: SPECTRE 3G-W cellular router with Wi-Fi
Network Integration - Wireless products: SPECTRE 3G-W cellular router with Wi-Fi is a single box solution for machine-to-machine network connectivity. Local devices and networks connect to the router via its built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, Ethernet 10/100 ports and I/O ports. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice finalist.
The SPECTRE 3G-W cellular router with Wi-Fi is a single box solution for machine-to-machine (M2M) network connectivity. Local devices and networks can connect to the router via its built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, Ethernet 10/100 ports and I/O ports. The router then connects them to the Internet via the CDMA and HSPA+ cellular telephone networks. The router can be used as a cable replacement for Internet connections, and it can also be used to provide redundant Internet backhaul when cable connections fail due to accidents, weather and other emergencies.
The SPECTRE 3G-W can scan for, detect and connect to local wireless networks. It can also create a Wi-Fi hotspot of its own, much like the ones found in coffee shops and airports. As a single box solution, it eliminates the need to deploy multiple devices to achieve the same functionality.
The SPECTRE 3G-W is built for plug-and-play simplicity. Users can control it using a secure and easy-to-use Web interface or a powerful scripting engine. An open, LINUX-based system allows for the use of common LINUX commands, scripts and other features. Customers can create their own plug-ins as well. The SPECTRE 3G-W features extensive remote management, deployment and customization options, such as automated over-the-air firmware updates for the simultaneous reconfiguration of multiple routers.
The SPECTRE 3G-W supports a wide variety of VPN protocols including IPSec, OpenVPN and GRE Tunneling. It also supports DHCP, NAT, NAT-T, SMTP, DynDNS, NTP, VRRP, HTTPS, SSH, OSPF, RIP, BGP control by SMS and more.
The SPECTRE 3G-W's rugged metal casing, wide operating range (-30 to 60 C) and DIN rail mounts give it the ability to provide reliable M2M connectivity in both enterprise and industrial M2M communications systems.
