The Proroute GEM 420 Dual SIM 4G Router is the latest Industrial grade M2M 4G router to offer our customers the ultimate remote connectivity 4G M2M solution.
With a single embedded 4G module, the GEM 420 4G router will provide a high speed 4G mobile broadband connection and also use 3G and 2G services if the higher speed services are unavailable. The GEM420 also offers the ability to insert a second SIM card which the router can use in the event of the primary 3G/4G network becoming unavailable. This means that the GEM 420 can failover to a second choice of network, providing additional connectivity redundancy.
In addition to this dual SIM 4G failover functionality the GEM420 also includes all the normal 3G/4G keep alive and remote mnanagement options like ping reboot / cell ICMP check and SMS reboot and SMS status to keep the router connected and keep you in control.
4G Load Balancing Router
The GEM420 also features a USB slot that can utilise an optional 3G/4G USB modem for an additional failover option, but the GEM420 can also utilise this 4G modem as a second simultaneous connection and provide basic load balancing using both the embedded 4G module and the external 4G USB modem.
WAN Load Balancing Router
As well as the option to use the USB slot for a 3G/4G USB modem you can also change Ethernet LAN port one into a WAN port and connect this to another internet source, maybe an ADSL or Satellite router and use the Proroute GEM420 as a 4G WAN Failover router, or in the case of the USB modem, you can also set the GEM420 to use the WAN connection at the same time as the on-board 4G modcule and provide load balancing between the WAN connection and 4G network.
This is not a bonded 4G router- it is only providing load balancing.
LAN and WiFi Connectivity
The GEM420 provides 4 x Ethernet Ports which are initially configured as LAN ports, but LAN One Port can be converted for WAN connectivity. The unit also provides high speed 802.11n WiFi connectivity with dual MiMo WiFi antennas.
Power Fail Option
The GEM420 is supplied with an industrial DC power connector block with dual power connectivity so you can connect to a primary and failover power supply and in the event of the primary power failing the router can instantly utilise the secondary power source without interuption to the router. The router is then supplied with an adapter to enable the use of the supplied 240VAC UK mains power adapter for easy installation.
The GEM 420 is supplied with Main and AUX Cellular Stick Type antennas with SMA connectors - these can be removed in the event that you need to use a different type of antenna for your installation such as an outdoor 4G antenna or 4G Puck, 4G Dome or 4G mag mount antennas.
The unit is also supplied with 2 x Stick WiFi Antennas, with Reverse SMA antenna connectors. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS OF THE PROROUTE GEM420 DUAL SIM 4G ROUTER
