Westermo launches robust industrial 4G router for reliable machine to machine communications

Versatile 4G industrial cellular router for reliable and cost-effective communication in critical infrastructure systems.

ELGIN, IL (Nov. 6, 2019) -- Critical infrastructure systems rely on communication devices to provide reliable and secure networks. To support this requirement Westermo has launched the MRD-455-NA, a robust 4G router designed to provide resilient and secure high-speed remote access across cellular networks. Offering an industrial design and a broad range of connectivity features, the MRD-455-NA ensures reliable machine to machine communications anywhere in the world.

The MRD-455-NA is extremely well suited to industrial applications where reliable machine to machine communication is vital. It has a compact design with all interfaces and LEDs at the front, DIN-rail mounting, isolated power supply and an operating voltage range spanning from 10 to 60 VDC. This industrial cellular broadband router offers a broad range of connectivity options, supporting many mobile standards including 3G and 4G LTE. A GPS antenna port enables customers to track remote assets by location which can be helpful in order to reduce the time it takes to locate equipment in an area.

The unit has a built-in two port 10/100 Ethernet switch and RS-232 D-Sub, which allows devices to seamlessly connect over vast geographical distances. Status changes to the device can be received by SMS and email, allowing industrial applications to be managed, controlled and updated from across the globe. This eliminates the need for time consuming and costly site visits.

The MRD-455-NA offers Virtual Private Network (VPN) functionality, enabling secure tunnels to be created over insecure networks, such as the Internet. Dual SIM support ensures that connectivity is not dependent on a single carrier. Should a problem occur, the MRD-455-NA automatically switches to the other SIM. The MRD-455-NA also features a powerful inspection firewall which, together with the VPNs and dual SIM support, assures a secure network.
