Router Offers Failover Support

by Benchmark

AMG Systems has released the new AMG750 Series industrial grade 4G/LTE router. Providing remote cellular connectivity, the AMG750 Series router features advanced dual SIM failover and WAN load balancing. The failover function provides an emergency redundant path, meaning if the primary WAN connection is lost, the router can automatically switch to a 4G/LTE wireless connection, guaranteeing maximum network reliability.

The automatic connectivity switching is essential where network uptime is critical to security and safety operations, such as within the remote deployment of life safety systems for high risk applications, or within transportation, where a 4G back-up path is required in addition to a DSL connection.

The router’s load balancing feature achieves a uniform traffic balance to make the best use of available bandwidth, or to distribute traffic according to a set of rules defining which WAN feed should be used for a given data or connection type. This functionality provides a superior quality of service, particularly within mission critical systems.

In addition to a USB port for device logging functions, the router features a dual band 2.4/5GHz wireless connection for local WiFi access and supports 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac.

Offering peace-of-mind and the highest level of systems reliability, the AMG750 Series features dual power supply inputs, along with a wide input range from 24-56V DC. In addition, fully integrated voltage boosting technology ensures that reliable IEEE 802.3at 30W PoE+ can be supplied to all four Ethernet ports, even when being powered by 24V DC sources. Extending system flexibility, the industrial router caters for legacy equipment via its RS232/485 serial data channel and can be wall or DIN rail mounted.

‘Ideal for rapid deployment, the AMG750 Series allows connectivity in scenarios where a wired connection is not possible,’ states Tom Exley, Technical Director at AMG. ‘Its Gigabit Ethernet WAN port and cellular WAN can be combined for load balancing or failover applications, and is particularly suited to the demands of security, transportation and energy applications.’
