LTE-Router 2020 – Migration from UMTS market to LTE

The most important providers of telecommunication services are switching off their 3G networks in the short and medium term. This will free up frequencies that will benefit the expansion of 4G (LTE) and 5G networks. LTE, the fourth-generation mobile communications standard for industrial applications, will replace UMTS in many countries in the foreseeable future.

Remote access to real-time monitoring systems, increasing complexity of networked IT peripherals and the option of accessing control functions of the integrated systems from any location at any time require the secure transmission of higher data volumes.

The switch to LTE, the third-generation mobile communications standard for industrial applications, means a clear increase in stability, significantly higher transmission rates and greater security.

The LTE Router 2020 from Quantec Systems also supports the evolutionary migration from previous transmission standards – including UMTS - to LTE with 4G.

Advantage features:

  • High transmission rates of up to 50 Mbps uplink and 150 Mbps downlink
  • High security of data transmission via IPsec or OpenVPN tunnel and integrated firewall
  • Comfortable configuration via the integrated web server or an XML file
  • Compatible with all global mobile phone standards
  • Send and receive IO status, e-mail, SMS and router status using XML files
  • Notifications by SMS and e-mail
  • Logbook for recording device-specific events


  • RS232 or RS485 interfaces for transparent serial data transmission via TCP/IP
  • GPS receiver on board. GPS data are available as SMS and XML files.
