The Amit IDG500 (IDG500-0T012) is the new compact, dual SIM 4G router that provides a cost effective solution to provide wireless broadband connectivity for a variety of remote access and monitoring applications.
In fact, we believe the IDG500 4G Router which is manufactured as an industrial grade 4G router sepcifically for M2M 4G connectivity is the lowest priced M2M 4G router currently available in the UK.
It has an embedded 4G Modem (150Mbps D/L and 50Mbps U/L) with dual SIM card slots so you can set the router to use SIM A as the primary network and failover to SIM B in the event that SIM A is not available. This SIM failover option provides an extra level of reliability.
The Amit IDG500 provides 2 x 10/100 Ethernet ports for the connection of wired devices or to connect a network switch and expand the number of wired LAN connections. The IDG500 also includes built-in WiFi (802.11b/g/n) so it can create a WiFi Hotspot - ideal for when the engineer visits site to make configuration changes, or to connect wireless devices.
Becuase the IDG500 Compact 4G router is specifically designed for M2M applications it means it has all the usual M2M features such as ping reboot to monitor the 4G connection and reboot the connection if dropped by the mobile network), port forwarding and of course a firewall which inlcudes stealth mode which is especially useful if using with a Fixed IP SIM Card with a Public IP Address.
