Industrial 802.11n/HSPA Wireless Routers

Enabling Wireless Network Connection on Demand

Industrial applications involving mobile communications, such as moving vehicles, industrial M2M, and geographically dispersed monitoring sites, face a common challenge. Communications links must be reliable and failsafe under dynamic and radio-hostile environments. To overcome this hurdle, the WDR-3124A industrial 802.11n/HSPA wireless router comes equipped with multiple radio interfaces to enable reliable mobile data access anytime, anywhere.

Certain industrial applications may be either very remote, very mobile, or both. The ability to securely extend high speed wireless networks into remote locations while maintaining mobility and user device choices is desirable in many industries. For oil and gas applications that need systems to communicate wirelessly with remote wellheads and tank farms, the WDR-3124A can be used to connect remote assets and send status data back to a control center via a 3G connection. 802.11n ability enables Wi-Fi access for field service personnel. What’s more, 802.11n WLAN can act as a client to transmit data from moving trains to wayside stations with 3G backup when Wi-Fi is inaccessible.

There are many benefits to deploying multiple wireless routers in industrial applications. Learn how Moxa industrial 802.11n/HSPA wireless routers keep your wireless networks connected at all times.

Seamless Wireless Links
Seamless wireless connections ensure your high efficiency and productivity for your applications. Although wireless routers that support both wireless LAN and WAN networks allow you to achieve seamless wireless connection wherever you are, different wireless technologies require different mechanisms to ensure network availability.

   

WLAN Networks:

Roaming is usually used in data communications for industrial applications that involve moving devices, such as trucks, eBuses, or where the device’s data communication path changes among multiple access points. A fast roaming method is necessary to ensure seamless data transmissions.

WWAN Networks:

Unstable cellular connections in wireless wide area networks (WWAN) result from the many different communication paths between the base station and the control center. As a result, redundant solutions also need to be able to monitor the strength of various links to ensure continuous cellular connectivity.

Dual SIM Design

Cellular service is not always available or guaranteed. The WDR-3124A has dual SIM card slots that accommodate automatic SIM switchover. The second SIM card holder provides cellular redundancy, as the router can automatically switch between cellular service providers if one connection fails.

GuaranLink Technology

Usually, cellular devices are not alerted when cellular links become inactive due to signal fading, interference, or connection termination by the operator. To overcome these obstacles, the WDR-3124A provides GuaranLink to ensure that your cellular connection is available whenever you need it.
