M500-W – World-Wide Bands Dual Sim, Dual LTE Modem 4G Router and WiFi Hotspot with optional GPS and Cloud Management.

The M500 Worldwide edition is a dual module router that is integrated with 2 different LTE modules.

Between them, the 2 modules cover around 90% of the LTE bands worldwide. This means that wherever you are in the world you should be able to connect with at least one of the modules.

Ideal for worldwide rapid deployment applications, as a WiFi solution for yachts and boats sailing to multiple countries, or indeed for any traveller who needs to maximize connectivity availability worldwide in a robust and reliable form factor.

Simply insert your local SIM into LTE 1 SIM slot. If there is no connection use LTE 2.

A full list of supported LTE bands for each module is listed below.

LTE 1 bands supported:

B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B7, B12, B13, B17, B20, B25, B26, B29, B30, B41

LTE 2 bands supported:

B1, B3, B5, B7, B8, B18, B19, B21, B28, B38, B39, B40, B41

M500-W can still be used to operate 2 mobile networks concurrently, either in failover or load-balancing model, and will also revert to 3G signal where 4G LTE is unavailable.

The router can run off a standard 12v, 24v or 48v battery, but is also supplied with a UK power plug for extra flexibility. The supplied LTE antennas give excellent indoor performance, but they are detachable should you wish to attach a 3rd party antenna solution, such as an in-vehicle roof mounted antenna, or even a directional antenna to boost distance and signal strength.

The on-board captive portal also supports Hotspot functionality should you wish to create a controlled WiFi network. Simple T&Cs sign on, re-direct landing page, bandwidth control by session and data limit alerts are just some of the many features that you can pre-configure to control WiFi access.

For multiple or fleet deployments we can also offer a comprehensive management platform (CMS) for diagnostics and monitoring that also supports GPS functionality

High Availability and Network Resilience

The M500 is a feature rich industrial class router coupled with robust network processing and Multi-WAN connectivity, purpose built for network resilience and business continuity. The platform support dual SIM and dual LTE radios for carrier redundancy or load balancing between carriers networks. In the event of a connectivity failure of the primary WAN interface, traffic is automatically redirected to the secondary WAN interface. The M500 will also fallback when the primary interface connection is restored. This functionality operates regardless of whether the primary connection is LTE or a wired connection such as fiber, cable or DSL. Load balancing and traffic prioritization mechanisms can be enabled to enhance failover performance and maximize bandwidth utilization for critical applications delivery.

Carrier-grade Wireless LAN

The M500 integrates a 802.11n access point supporting data rates of up to 300Mbps. Security functionality includes: WEP 64/128, WPA(PSK), WPA2(PSK), Mixed WPA/WPA2(PSK), SSID broadcast disable, Wireless MAC address filtering and SSID with Client Isolation to enhance the level of transmission security and access control over the Wireless LAN. Allowing for Wi-Fi Hotspot functionality anywhere there is cellular signal. The captive portal enables highly secure connectivity with multiple authentication options and extensive controls for access and bandwidth management.

Public Safety

LTE can enhance emergency responders operations by delivering high-data-rate services to wide coverage areas. Such communication links can support digital imaging, video streaming, voice, large data download, and other capabilities which cannot be supported over the traditional narrowband network. LTE Wireless broadband networks allow mission-critical information to be exchanged in real-time, anytime, anywhere. Database lookups, dispatch messaging, mug shots, video/ surveillance feeds, and broadcasting can now be achieved within seconds instead of hours.

Billion M500 provides dual LTE modules, enable in-vehicle WiFi, real-time imaging streaming, and medical data transferring with instant failover capability. Ambulance staff is allowed to examine patient media records, plan driving routes, and communicate with emergency room and fleet dispatchers to allocate the available vehicle resource to resolve emergency scenarios. The dual-Radio supports multi-channel video recording and streaming with always-on, extensive broadband feasibility. Thus, Billion M500 can transmit the images of a patient’s injuries from the ambulance to the emergency room for treatment advice and minimize the gaps of medical care upon arrival at hospitals.

Industrial Solutions

When compared to existing 2G/3G M2M cellular devices, the most notable benefit of 4G/LTE is the higher performance and capacity which result in significantly faster download and upload data rates. While faster data rates are great for backbone network communication and remote surveillance industrial applications, the significantly lower latency (time delay) of LTE is more important for M2M industrial applications that rely on real-time information, such as controlling sensitive equipment, industrial alarms, and tracking management.Financial Solutions for Retail, Point of Sales (PoS), Kiosks, and Automated Teller Machines (ATM)
