But first, in case you were curious:
In other words: the 5G hype is coming to fruition. Which means if you’re a Channel partner with your finger on the pulse, it’s the perfect time to gear up with the right equipment to run 5G solutions.
4G-LTE routers contain an LTE chipset that falls under different chipset categories, like Cat 6, Cat 12, or Cat 18. But 5G categories haven’t been defined yet, as the tech behind 5G is so new to the market.
5G-preferred is typically the best option, as it effectively gives you 4G backup if there’s an outage, or if your solution is mobile and moves away from a 5G network. Acronyms incoming: the router supports multi-carrier 2G and 3G, 4G FDD LTE, TDD LTE, and LTE advanced. And in terms of Wi-Fi, it allows Dual-band or Tri-band dual concurrent Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac), with both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.
6 external antennas, which boosts its indoor connectivity and also supports mobility.
A ruggedised body, making it a perfect fit for outdoor mobile connectivity, whether out in nature or on the streets.
Optional static IPs, for businesses who want to compliment their fixed-line connectivity with ultrafast mobile broadband.
Dual SIM connectivity with failover, providing you with continuous and seamless connectivity.
A dual-core CPU for fast processing and easy configuration.
