Business Class 4G Routers For Office Use
Many businesses want to take advantage of high speed 4G connections for their office or home office environment so to make it easy to select a suitable office router we have listed below our recommendations for 4G routers and antennas.
UNLIMITED 4G DATA TARIFF
Use these unlimited mobile broadband data plans in your Office 4G router.
O2 Unlimited Data SIM Cards - 4G (no fixed IP)

O2 - £30.00 per month - twelve month contract
Vodafone Unlimited Data SIM Cards - 4G (no fixed IP)
Vodafone - £33.00 per month - one month contract

These tariffs can be used with the Huawei B535, Huawei B818 and the Huawei 5G CPE Pro, if you require an industrial type 4G or 5G Router these can be used with any of our PROROUTE branded routers, but remember that these tariffs for unlimited data do not provide a fixed, public IP address so cannot be used for remote access or port forwarding. Fixed IP SIM Cards are available, but not with unlimited data.
Please note - we have recommended the antennas for use in situations only where the 3G / 4G signal outdoors is better than the 3G/4G signal indoors where the router is to be located. if the signal is the same outdoors as it is indoors then you will not benefit from using an external 4G antenna.
We do not recommend the use of M2M / Insutrial grade routers for the majority of applications as many of the features and services of these M2M type routers are not required for basic office installations.
A 4G Router can provide a viable alternative to ADSL / VDSL Internet services however you must remember it is not an always on service and the mobile phone network may disconnect your router at times, usually the router will automatically reconnect, sometimes you need to power cycle the router. Also - your 4G speeds will fluctuate during the day and at peak times your 4G download and upload speeds may be slower with increased latency.
The best way to deploy 4G Mobile Broadband for your office would be to install a business class firewall with multiple WAN ports and use a couple of 4G routers preferably with different network providers to reduce the risk of downtime.
Vigor 2862Ln LTE 4G Router & VDSL Router with Gigabit Ethernet and WiFi
The Draytek Vigor 2862Ln features the same specification as the standard Vigor2862 product with the addition of built-in 4G (Cellular/LTE) connectivity, compatible with all UK/Ireland cellular networks (apart from 'Relish')
The embedded 4G/LTE connectivity provides a self-contained solution as opposed to having to add external/USB modems to your router. A standard SIM slot on the back of the router is secured with a cover to prevent accidental removal.
As well as connectivity to the 4G (LTE) networks, the Vigor 2862L series provides backward compatibility to 3G networks for areas or networks where 4G isn't available. Full function MS message operation also provides additional functionality and control.
Your 3G/4G can provide your sole/primary Internet connection, with optional fallback (backup) to another WAN connection (DSL or Ethernet fed) or 3G/4G can be the backup to your primary DSL/Ethernet connection.
Secondary or backup 3G/4G connectivity, using a second network/SIM can be added by the use of an additional 3G/4G USB modem (not supplied). Check the compatibility list to see which USB modems are supported. Note that an external USB modem is only needed for the second cellular connection - the primary 3G/4G interface and SIM slot is built-in. Alternatively, using Wireless WAN, the Vigor 2862L can derive a secondary WAN (Internet) connection from a WiFi feed - e.g. your mobile phone's hotspot or a temporary mobile provision.
The Vigor 2862L series also provides built-in ADSL/VDSL and Ethernet WAN connectivity for wired (broadband) Internet connections.
