5G Outdoor Router for Vehicles and IoT

The R2100 ruggedized router is built to withstand extreme environments and is ideally suited for installations within mass transit, public safety, first responder, SMB, enterprise, and government organizations with a fleet, vehicle, or IoT component.

Designed to be mounted on the rooftop of a vehicle or attached to IoT cabinet enclosures, the R2100 integrates the modem, antennas, and router into a single aerodynamic, ruggedized casing allowing for simplified deployment. The R2100 is available with or without Wi-Fi 6 and can be deployed as a self-contained router or to supplement an existing router as a 5G adapter.

High Performance Captive Modem

The R2100 Series can act as a captive modem and be managed as an integrated WAN interface on the controlling router. This allows 5G to be added to an LTE deployment, or a second 5G connection added to a 5G router. It can also provide captive Wi-Fi to an R1900 Series controlling router. Easily deployed with no coax cabling, the R2100 Series can be POE powered while providing a height-performance 5G connection over Ethernet.
