Overview
The Virtual Access GW1000M Series router is a compact and rugged LTE/3G router with Wi-Fi for use in both vehicles and a wide range of site-based applications.
The GW1000M enables 3G/LTE connectivity in buses, taxis and fleet vehicles for applications such as passenger Wi-Fi Internet access, telemetry and employee Wi-Fi access to corporate network services.
The product is equally at home in site locations offering primary WAN or 3G/LTE failover to fixed line connections. Its small size is ideal for M2M applications such as remote monitoring and control.
The product line supports the following radio access technologies: LTE, HSPA+, HSPA, UMTS, EDGE, GPRS and GSM.

Dual Ethernet Ports
The GW1000M has two 10/100 Mbps Ethernet interfaces. They can be configured as a single interface with Ethernet switching between them or as separate router interfaces.

Dual SIM
Dual SIM slots ensure that a backup cellular network can take over should the primary network fail. The router detects a network problem and fails over to a standby SIM/APN.

Ignition Sense
In automotive applications, the ignition sense input can detect when the vehicle’s ignition has been enabled. This allows the GW1000M to remain powered on after the vehicle has stopped. The time delay between ignition off and power down is configurable.

Wi-Fi
The GW1000M Series router has integrated Wi-Fi support. It is capable of supporting both Access Point mode and Station mode concurrently if required.

Voltage Sensor
An additional input wire is provided that can be used to detect a voltage and the device can use this to make behaviour changes. For example, this can be used to enable the Wi-Fi only when a taxi meter is running.

GPS Receiver
The GW1000M Series router includes a GPS receiver that can be used for vehicle tracking. The vehicle’s coordinates, direction and speed can be reported to a central application tracking server periodically.

SMS Management
The GW1000M Series router also supports SMS, so if the packet switched side of the network is down, you can send commands to the router to perform diagnostics or even a reload.

Active Power Conditioning
Vehicle battery voltages often experience transients and there can be substantial voltage dip during engine start up. The GW1000M Series router incorporates an active power conditioner, which is designed to accommodate the voltage surges and transients commonly found in vehicles.

Mounting Bracket
A bracket is included that enables simple mounting. The bracket can be clipped onto a DIN rail for industrial applications.

Centralised Management and Monitoring
The GW1000M Series router benefits from Activator, Virtual Access’ centralised configuration management and monitoring system. Activator simplifies and automates deployment, management and support tasks in managed network environments.
