Alarm System Communications
Redundant Communication Paths
The Proxicast LAN-Cell 3G/4G cellular router provides two
ways to transmit security system alarms back to your monitoring
- Wired Ethernet - DSL, Cable Modem, etc.
- Cellular Modem (3G, 4G, LTE or HSPA+)
Any of these interfaces can be designated as primary, with the others serving as redundant back-up communication paths
in the event that higher priority paths are down. Fail-over to the back-up interfaces is automatic.
This provides you with the most reliable means of ensuring timely notification of remote alarm events. Use the LAN-Cell when
you need secure high availability communications for your critical installations.
Control Communications Costs
The LAN-Cell 3G/4G router can connect any
of its WAN interfaces "on demand" when an alarm
condition warrants to help keep communications costs
Connect Any Alarm System
Ethernet-based alarm systems can be connected natively
to the LAN-Cell 3G/4G router. Serial-based systems can be
easily interfaced with an inexpensive serial-to-Ethernet
converter. You can even "mix & match" Ethernet and serial
components such as IP cameras and serial alarm consoles
using the LAN-Cell's built-in 4 port 10/100 Ethernet switch.
Once connected, you can also remotely manage the alarm system using any WAN interface via static IP address or Dynamic DNS name.
LAN-Cell 3G Router Advantages
- Automatic fail-over of redundant WAN connections
- Connect multiple system components to one LAN-Cell
- Vandal-resistant mounting & antenna options
- Deploy a single platform on 3G/4G CDMA & GSM (HSPA/LTE) networks
