Teltonika RUT230 3G Router Announced

Teltonika have announced the launch of their new RUT230 3G Router.

This new low cost IoT 3G Router will replace the RUT500 3G Router and will be slightly smaller, made possible by the fact that there are now only 2 x Ethernet Ports.  The RUT230 router will still retain the WiFi functionality and Teltonika have made installation of the SIM card easier with the addition of an external SIM card slot so the SIM card can be inserted without removing the router cover plate.  They also include a Digital IO interface.

RUT230 Antenna Options

You can see from the image below that the RUT230 router has 2 x Antenna connections – a single connection for Cell Antenna (SMA Female) and a single WiFi Antenna connector (RP SMA) this means that the RUT230 router will support a variety of different 3G Antennas depending upon your installation requirement.

Teltonika RUT950 – New Power Connector and Telit 4G Module

Teltonika have announced today that the Teltonika RUT950 will be produced with a new terminal power connection.

RUT950 Power connector

 

Teltonika claim the benefits of the new style power connector for the RUT950 4G Router will be

1) Socket plug with fixation
2) Ready for RCM certification
3) One socket for industrial and home usage
4) Reserved pins for ignition (future option)

Teltonika also announced that they will be replacing the existing Huawei 4G Modem and replace it with a new CAT4 Telit 4G Modem.

The new Telit Module has the following features

  • LTE (DL/UK) – 150 / 50 Mbps
  • LTE Bands – B1 / B3 / B7 / B8 / B20
  • HSPA (HSDPA) – 21 Mbps
  • HSPA (HSUPA) 5.76 Mbps
  • UMTS – 384 Mbps
  • GSM / GPRS / EDGE – Dual band Europe (900 / 1800 Mhz)
  • UMTS / HSDPA / HSUPA – B1 / B8 (2100 / 900 Mhz)
  • EDGE – 236.8 Kbps
  • GPRS – 85.6 Kbps

Compared to the old Huawei Module

  • LTE (DL/UK) – 100 / 50 Mbps
  • LTE Bands – B1 / B2 / B3 / B5 / B7 / B8 / B20
  • HSPA (HSDPA) – 21 Mbps
  • HSPA (HSUPA) 5.76 Mbps
  • UMTS – 384 Mbps
  • GSM / GPRS / EDGE – Quad Band)
  • UMTS / HSDPA / HSUPA – B1 / B2 / B5 / B8
  • EDGE – 236.8 Kbps
  • GPRS – 85.6 Kbps

So for 4G connectivity the main benefit is the move to a CAT4 module to hopefully provide better download speeds – of course your maximum download and upload speeds for the RUT950 4G Router will depend upon distance to 4G base Station and the number of simultaneous users and the mobile networks bandwidth and service restrictions.

Once Teltonika start production of the revised RUT950 4G Router then the old barrel style connector will no longer be available.  replacement power supplies will need to be specially ordered and are expected to be more expensive than the normal mains power supplies.

New Low Price of £70.00 For The Teltonika RUT500 3G Router

The Teltonika RUT500 is probably the cheapest M2M 3G Router in the UK – priced at just £70.00 each + VAT the RUT500 Industrial Grade embedded 3G Router provides a low cost, reliable solution for remote monitoring and management applications that require a 3G mobile broadband Internet connection.

The RUT500 3G Router provides the user with 3 x Ethernet LAN Ports, 802.11n WiFi and an RJ45 Ethernet WAN Port.

Teltonika RUT500

To get connected to the 3G Internet service simply remove the front panel of the router (where the antennas are connected) and insert your 3G SIM Card – this can be a normal 3G mobile broadband SIM card or a Fixed IP SIM Card.  If you are using the Teltonika RUT500 for remote monitoring or management then you would be better off using a Fixed IP SIM card service because many normal 3G SIM cards ordered directly from the mobile networks use CGNAT (Carrier Grade NAT) which means that your router 3G connection will only get a private IP address from the mobile network which means that you won’t be able to connect to the router over the Internet which means that you can’t use DYNDNS and because you can’t remotely connect to the RUT500 then port forwarding will not work to connect to your devices on the LAN.

In fact, the only network that provides a public IP address using a standard network SIM card is 3mobile and you need to use the APN of 3internet in order to get the router to request a public IP address when it connects.  this is not a guaranteed service so sometimes you will not get a public IP address so you will be unable to connect to your router and it is not a contractual part of your service and may be stopped at any time in which case you will still be liable for the rentals for the remainder of the contract and will then be left with no choice but to switch to a Fixed IP SIM card service so you would then need to visit each site and switch out the SIM cards.

For this reason many M2M users will opt for the convenience of a Fixed IP SIM card service.

The Teltonika RUT500 3G router also includes features like ping reboot so it can actively monitor the 3G connection and when the mobile network disconnects the router it will be recognised and will be able to reboot and reconnect to the 3G service eliminating the need for time consuming and expensive site visits to power cycle your 3G router.

The Teltonika RUT500 is supplied with a UK Mains Power Supply, a DIN Rail Mounting Kit, A CAT5e patch lead, 1 x elbow joint Cellular antenna, 1 x elbow joint WiFi antenna and a quick set up guide.

Teltonika RUT500 SMS Reboot / SMS Status Feature

TELTONIKA RUT500 Port Forwarding using DYNDNS (using Three Mobile SIM Card)

The following video demonstrates how to configure the RUT500 with a 3 Mobile SIM (using the APN 3internet) to get a public IP address allocated to the router so that the router can be accessed over the internet and then configuring port forwarding to connect to an IP camera on the LAN. It demonstrates that using a different APN the router will connect to the internet but will be given a PRIVATE IP address which means that you will be unable to connect to the router over the Internet and in this case will not be able to use port forwarding.

The video also explains the imporance of ensuring that the device on the LAN is correctly configured to ensure that it has the correct IP address AND default gateway and demonstrates what happens if the default gateway is incorrect or missing which is one of the most common reasons that port forwarding does not work.

Teltonika RUT950 Dual SIM 4G Router – Now In Stock

After a successful launch of the new Teltonika RUT950 Dual SIM 4G Router we now have large stocks available at the reduced price of £135.00 each.

Teltonika RUT950

This Dual SIM 4G Router has a single embedded LTE 4G module to provide high speed 3G/4G mobile broadband Internet connectivity but has two SIM card slots so the router can switch from SIM 1 to SIM 2 based upon different switching criteria such as network unavailable or bandwidth limit reached.

The Teltonika RUT950 4G Router includes all the normal M2M features for a reliable 3G/4G connection including ping reboot and SMS reboot and includes VPN and port forwarding.

The RUT950 has 4 x Ethernet ports (3 x LAN and 1 x WAN) and also features 802.11 b/g/n WiFi for wireless LAN.

Teltonika RUT500 to replace Teltonika RUT104 3G Router

Teltonika have announced that the popular RUT104 M2M 3G Router will make it’s final production run in November and the new Teltonika RUT500 will be the replacement 3G router.

The RUT500 was originally designed to run alongside the RUT104, but the popularity of this new router has meant that the the production of the RUT500 now takes priority and it was an easy decision to make the RUT500 the primary 3G Router offering ion the Teltonika M2M connectivity range.

Teltonika RUT500 Front ViewTeltonika RUT500 Rear View

 

The RUT500 includes 3 x LAN Ports, 1 x WAN port, N Wireless WiFi connectivity and the SIM card is hidden behind the front panel of the router.  In terms of the Teltonika RUT500 functionality it continues to offer all of the features of the RUT104 including site to site VPN functionality, firewall, port forwarding and 3G keep alive Ping Reboot feature as well as now also offering SMS reboot for added convenience when using this 3G router for your remote site connectivity for management and monitoring.

RUT500 SIM card Insertion

As the largest Teltonika UK distributor, Westlake Communications have enhanced the RUT500 offering by including a DIN Rail mounting kit and a magnetic mount 3G antenna as these are not supplied as standard in the Teltonika RUT500 UK offering.  In fact the RUT500 is usually only supplied with 1 x Fixed 3G Antenna and 1 x Fixed WiFi Antenna and a mains power supply so the Westlake RUT500 3G Router offering means that existing users of the RUT104 and RUT105 routers can be assured of an easy transition to the new RUT500 and take advantage of this higher specification unit at the same price as the old RUT104 and RUT105 routers.

The Teltonika RUT500 HSPA+ router features a WAN Port so it can be connected to a second router such as an ADSL router and can use this WAN connection as it’s primary internet connection and automatically fail over to 3G when the internet connection via the WAN port is unavailable.  the RUT500 will then reconnect to the internet via the WAN port when it can determine the WAN internet connection has been re-established.  This makes the Teltonika RUT500 ideal for use as a failover 3G router so if you need ADSL backup using 3G then this router can provide this ADSL router failover functionality.

The Teltonika RUT500 3G Router includes all the advanced firewall and routing functions required for most M2M applications and it’s easy to use, web management interface makes set up and configuration of the router quick and simple.

For example, if  the Teltonika RUT500 is going to be used to provide 3G wireless broadband connectivity for a CCTV application to provide remote connection to a CCTV DVR then assuming that a Fixed IP SIM Card is being used then once the APN (Access Point Name – these are the settings provided by your SIM provider in order for the router to connect to their network) is entered then the only other thing that needs to be done it to set port forwarding and this is simply done by stating with external port you want to be forwarded to the internal IP address (the IP address of your DVR) and to state the internal port eg. you have a fixed IP address of 109.27.26.29 allocated by your Fixed IP SIM card provider and you want to connect to your DVR which you have given an internal (LAN) IP address of 192.168.1.10 and the DVR uses port 80 (this is the typical web server port).  You could use an external port of 5555 and port forward this to 192.168.1.10 port 80 – this means that when you type the external IP address of 109.27.26.29 and port 5555 (this is input in the address bar of your browser and would be entered as 109.27.26.29:5555) – the IP address would take you to the Teltonika router and then the router would see that you want to connect to port 5555 – it would then look at the port forwarding rule and deliver you to port 80 of 192.168.1.10.  By using different external ports eg. 5555, 5556, 5557 you can have multiple devices connected on the LAN that you can remotely connect to even if they all use port 80.

One other thing to consider is setting the management settings on the Teltonika RUT500 router to allow remote access so you can monitor the router status remotely.  The Teltonika Router uses port 80 which is why we used different external port addresses in our port forwarding rules to route to other devices on the LAN which also use port 80.  You can also tick the box to enable https:// remote access to the router as a back door – so if you did want to use an external port 80 to route to an internal port 80 then this can be done and remote access to the router configuration can be still be achieved.

The Teltonika RUT500 also includes a ping reboot function which needs to be configured before you leave site becuase it is this very important function that will ensure a reliable and long term connection to the 3G network.  The ping reboot function will periodically ping an IP address on the internet to ensure there is a 3G connection and if it does not receive a reply the router will assume it has been disconnected from the internet and will automatically reboot and re-establish the 3G internet connection.  We uses Google DNS server IP addresses (8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4) as our IP addresses to ping because we assume that Google will pretty much have these servers up and running all the time and we set the ping frequency to 10 minutes with 2 attempts – this means every 10 minutes the RUT500 will ping 8.8.8.8 and if if does not receive a reply it will try again 10 minutes later and if it still does not receive a reply it will reboot and re-establish the connection.

Other than the APN, port forwarding, remote management and ping reboot features there is very little else that needs to be configured on the RUT500 to provide a quick and reliable 3G connection for your remote connection to your equipment so whether you need 3G CCTV, a connection to upload content for your digital signage over 3G or reliable 3G internet for energy monitoring the Teltonika RUT500 is the ideal router at the ideal price to achieve this.

Teltonika RUT104 New HSPA+ 3G Router

The popular Teltonika RUT104 3G Router has had an upgrade and the new Teltonika RUT104+ now features high speed HSPA+ connectivity with download speeds up to 14.4mbps and also includes an updated web user interface as well as SMS reboot feature to compliment the existing Ping Rebbot keep alive feature which has made the Teltonika Routers popular for M2M remote monitoring and management applications such as remote connectivity to CCTV installations and remote connectivity over 3G for content management of digital signage installations.

Teltonika RUT104

The Teltonika RUT104 keeps the same robust aluminium casing but is now supplied with a DIN Rail Mounting kit to enable easy mounting of the router.  The RUT104 is supplied with 2 x GSM Antennas (Main and Aux) and 2 x WiFi Antennas.  The 3G Antennas use standard SMA connectors so can be removed and repleced with a variety of external or higher gain 3G Antennas.  This is useful for example where the 3G router is being installed in a location with a very poor or no 3G signal, but an external 3G antenna can be located nearby to deliver a 3G signal to the router via the connecting wire.

 

RUT500 HSPA+ Router

The Teltonika RUT500 is a new HSPA+ router available from teltonika offering up to 4 x 10/100 Ethernet ports and new high speed N Wireless WiFi connectivity as well as providing high speed HSPA+ mobile broadband connectivity using embedded HSPA+ modem technology.
