Proxicast Introduces The LAN-Cell 3 - 3G/4G Cellular VPN Router
Rugged secure commercial-grade router with enterprise-class routing, VPN and Wi-Fi features |
supports the latest high-speed 3G/4G cellular technologies for industrial and mobile applications
Pittsburgh, PA. (April 30, 2012) – Proxicast (www.proxicast.com)
Proxicast’s new LAN-Cell 3 Mobile 3G/4G VPN Router offers fast, reliable, secure and cost-effective remote wireless Internet access on any 3G/4G (LTE, HSPA+) wireless data network worldwide. The LAN Cell 3 is a commercial-grade mobile 3G/4G router with enterprise-class routing and security features that allows multiple PC's, laptops, webcams, controllers, PLCs, and other Ethernet-based devices to simultaneously share a single cellular data account for primary or backup connectivity.
The all new LAN-Cell 3 3G/4G router is the fastest and most advanced member of Proxicast’s award-winning LAN-Cell family of secure VPN cellular routers. This model features customer accessible 3G/4G USB cellular modems – the same ones commonly used to provide high-speed cellular connectivity to laptops. The USB modem seamlessly becomes a WAN interface for the LAN-Cell router and is fully integrated with all of the LAN-Cell’s security, performance, and management capabilities.
Key advantages of the LAN-Cell 3 mobile router include:
- Multiple Broadband WAN Connections (3G/4G + 802.11 b/g/n + xDSL/cable/T1 modem)
Support for multiple broadband technologies including 3G/4G, 802.11 b/g/n and wired Ethernet connections enables simultaneous multi-megabit/sec connections for applications such as remote equipment monitoring, video surveillance, point-of-sale, and mobile Wi-Fi hotspots.
- 3G/4G USB Modem Support
Automatic recognition and configuration for over 100 different 2G/3G/4G USB modems on dozens of mobile networks worldwide makes cellular Internet connectivity “plug-and-play”.
- Dual WAN Load Balance and Failover
Support for load balancing and failover functions between fixed-line (xDSL/cable modem), Wi-Fi, and 3G/4G service offers non-stop network connectivity.
- VPN Server & Client
Embedded VPN features allow remote users to make secure connections to devices which normally cannot run VPN software. The LAN-Cell supports up to 25 simultaneous tunnels and can also establish site-to-site tunnels to existing corporate VPN servers (Cisco, Juniper, SonicWall, etc.) for enterprise-level data security.
- High-Speed Wi-Fi
An integrated 802.11 b/g/n radio and removable high-gain 2x2 MIMO external antennas delivers speeds up to 300 Mbps for high-bandwidth multi-media applications on both the LAN and WAN.
- Quality of Service (Bandwidth Management)
Automatic monitoring of bandwidth usage, traffic prioritization, policy routing and bandwidth allocation to applications and users permits fine-tuning of WAN QoS performance.
- Industrial Design
A rugged steel chassis and unique Multi-Function Mounting Base provide physical security along with conveniences such as power-locking, cable management, external antenna mounts, and the patent-pending Modem-LOCK USB modem retention system for industrial and mobile applications.
- Energy Efficient
The LAN-Cell 3’s low power consumption and 12VDC operation makes it ideal for vehicle, solar or battery-powered installations.
The LAN-Cell 3 reduces remote site deployment costs by eliminating the need for additional hardware and software. Its integrated full-featured IP router, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi access point and client, 4 port 10/100/1000 switch, automatic WAN fail-over, IPsec & PPTP VPN clients and servers, 3DES & AES encryption, DMZ and VLAN support, firewall, NAT/PAT services and bandwidth management features deliver unprecedented value in a small, low-cost device. The LAN Cell’s platform independent tablet-friendly embedded management interface makes setup easy and allows the LAN Cell to be managed from the LAN or remotely over the Internet with any web browser on any PC, tablet or smartphone.
The LAN-Cell 3 mobile router is the perfect communications gateway for:
- Sales & Service Fleets
