Robustel´s new R2000 Ent industrial dual module cellular VPN router with voice provides fast and reliable internet connectivity and enhanced voice capabilities, facilitating the response to and the management of any device – anytime and anywhere.

Munich, February 16, 2017

No more poor network quality, high costs for network access, or extra telephone costs in retail stores or branch offices. Robustel´s R2000 Ent router is an all-in-one solution for telecom operators including:

-Voice functionality that allows telephone calls over the cellular network using a standard landline telephone.
-Reliable internet connectivity with an embedded dual module that supports two SIM cards simultaneously. It supports cellular WAN, Ethernet WAN, Wi-Fi link backup, and ICMP detection.
-Industrial-grade metal housing ensures reliable operation in a wide temperature range. The router is protected against humidity, dust, vibration, and EMC, and it comes with a PD power interface.

Total Solution

The complete solution offers the retail industry a customized cloud application system, uncompromised network connectivity with a router that is suitable for IoT environments, and the smooth integration of various edge devices for distributed sites. Management is facilitated by RobustLink, a private cloud management platform that helps you to configure, monitor and control your devices in real-time and visualizes the state of any device. This is especially important in large-scale applications. It enables quick response to events, supporting high availability.

Service Level Improvement

-Poor network quality in retail stores drives away customers.
-High service levels and reduced network costs at the same time have led to an increased demand for wireless connectivity – and 3G is no longer enough to cover the bandwidth requirements.
-Telephones are seldom used, but telephones lines seem to have too high costs.

Robustel´s all-in-one solution meets all of these challenges and improves service in the retail industry, at branch offices, convenience stores, quick service restaurants, digital signage applications, IP video surveillance, and video advertising.

“Soracom is excited to partner with Robustel for this product launch. We believe this is a great fit for IoT use cases where several connectivity options are required. Customers do not have to look for separate devices and terminals as R2000 Ent allows multiple options for cellular connectivity as fall back. Consumer experience is very important for businesses today, and enriching it further with a product that offers more stable delivery of service is a great step ahead,” explained Parag Mittal, Soracom´s Chief Commercial Officer.
