The Virtual Access GW2028 industrial router is a versatile 3G/LTE/Fibre/CDMA450 wireless router suitable for a variety of industrial deployments. The compact and rugged structure makes it a suitable product for deployments in M2M applications such as CCTV, telemetry, SCADA, digital signage, and intelligent traffic systems.

The product line supports the following radio access technologies: LTE, HSPA+, HSPA, UMTS, EDGE, CDMA450, GPRS and GSM.

Broadband Connectivity
The GW2028 router provides high speed, secure 3G/LTE/Fibre/CDMA450 data network connectivity to remote sites.

Dual SIM
Dual SIM architecture ensures that a backup wireless network can take over should the primary network fail. The router detects a network problem and fails over to a standby SIM/APN, ensuring customer’s SLAs are upheld.

Dual Fibre SFPs
Dual fibre SFPs mean that the unit can be used in point to point or ring configurations.

SMS Commands
The GW2028 router also supports SMS, so if the packet switched side of the network is down you can still send commands to the router to perform diagnostics or even a reload.

Quad Ethernet Ports
The GW2028 router offers 4 x 10/100 Mbps Ethernet interfaces. Ports can be fully segmented using VLAN and 802.1q.

Serial Ports
The RS232 serial and RS485 options facilitate direct connectivity to serial devices and enable remote console access.

Digital Inputs and Output
Two digital inputs are provided that can be used to detect remote contact states for monitoring door open/close or PIR detectors or similar. Custom scripts can be written to determine the action to be taken on the detection of an input state change. Syslog events, SNMP traps or emails can be generated. There is also a relay contact output. This can be controlled by a script on detecting any event within the device, or it can be controlled remotely.

Advanced Security and Routing Features
The GW2028 router offers business grade security and advanced routing features IPSec (3Des and AES), stateful firewall and L2TP as standard.

Centralised Management and Service Monitoring
As with all Virtual Access routers, the GW2028 router benefits from centralised configuration management, monitoring utilities and SLA reporting. Centralised management and monitoring enables service providers to simplify and automate service deployment, management and support tasks in managed network environments. SLA reporting presents a range of statistics from the router including latency, packet loss and 3G/LTE signal strength over extended periods of time.
