Proxicast PocketPORT 2: Pocket-Sized 4G/LTE USB Cellular Modem Bridge (Mini Router)
The ultra-small Proxicast PocketPORT 2 4G/LTE Cellular Modem Bridge supports all major modem standards. The PocketPORT 2 can function as a 4G/LTE Modem or Router.
The PocketPORT 2 is the world’s smallest 4G USB Cellular Modem Bridge which can function as a 4G modem or mini 4G router. The PocketPORT 2 instantly connects virtually any cellular 4G USB modem to any Ethernet device simply by plugging both devices into the PocketPORT 2. The PocketPORT 2 is the highly portable, simple and low-cost alternative to large, complex and expensive cellular Ethernet modems. It also has some the functions of more expensive cellular routers.
Use a PocketPORT 2 wherever wired Internet service is unavailable, difficult, costly or time-consuming to install. Plug a PocketPORT 2 into the Ethernet port of devices such as IP cameras (web cams) for security applications, programmable logic controllers (PLC) for industrial processes, digital & network video recorders (DVR/NVR) or any other equipment that needs Internet service for remote access. Have field service technicians keep a PocketPORT 2 in their “pocket” for instant 4G Internet access for remote equipment when they are on site visits.
The PocketPORT 2 can also create a fully encrypted "virtual cable" VPN link between two Ethernet devices over the Internet, using standard 4G cellular USB modems. The PocketPORT 2 contains a powerful VPN controller that is capable of establishing transparent peer-to-peer connections from behind firewalls. It acts just like a very long virtual Ethernet cable. Virtual cable mode can be configured either as point-to-point or point-to-multi-point connections.
3 Modes of Operation
- Bridge Mode - plug a USB modem into any Ethernet port
- Router Mode - provide an Internet connection to an existing network
- Virtual Cable - create a secure Ethernet connection between any Internet connected devices
