Siemens has announced the launch of ‘Ruggedcom RX1400 ‘ wireless router. The device is designed for communication through commercial long-term evolution (LTE) networks. It can also use 2G and 3G connectivity for communication.
Ruggedcom RX1400 router has a dual SIM slot, which allows automatic failover between mobile service providers in case of network failures, if necessary. Users can equip the device with two optional fiber-optic SFPs (Small Form-factor Pluggable) and can establish wired communication connections where needed.
The router combines the functionality of Ethernet switch and router with various connectivity options for Wide Area Networks (WAN).
The device has a smart multiprotocol network node with integrated firewall. The device can be used for secure communication of metering data to a smart city’s control centre through wireless network (2G or 3G.)
Ruggedcom RX1400 wireless router is a cost-efficient solution for connecting network components to a WAN in large-scale deployments. It is also ideal for oil and gas facilities, substations of power distribution systems, switch cabinets for traffic and rail transport control as well as applications in any harsh industrial environment.
