net module

Combined UMTS/LTE and WLAN router

The Wireless Internet Access Point (WIAP) provides wireless internet access for other devices. With the Multi-SSID function several separated WiFi networks can be operated at the same time.
In multi-WAN configuration, the device operates as a least cost router with automatic fall back in case of a failure. In this case the WiFi interface is configured as a client and one Ethernet port is connected to a local network.

The integrated GPS receiver allows you to locate the position of the device with a high accuracy or to use the GPS signal as the time base. Integrating into map services like Google Maps allows you to track the device if it's mounted in moving equipment.

In its role as device server the NB1600 converts both, the serial and the USB interface to IP, enabling remote access to these interfaces. Any PC with IP connection to the router can use the remote USB or RS-232 device as if it was directly connected. This setup allows using the original driver.
Digital I/Os can be configured by local or remote devices. Based on input port state changes, applications can be informed and e.g. an SMS is sent to a group of numbers.

The SDK allows users programing the NB1600 using a simple script and implementing all kind of applications. Reprocessing can be done directly on the router, thus saving an additional IPC.

Other features and services are DHCP server, DNS proxy, Dynamic DNS Agent, SNMP agent, Telnet server, SSH server, Web server, e-mail and SMS. The router is operated by the Web Manager or via command line.
Firmware and configuration updates can be easily performed from remote in a fail-safe manner. The SNMP interface allows integration of the Router in a network management system for supervision.

For those clients that are not required to follow the Lightsource specification the following routers are recommended:-
