The Virtual Access GW3300 Series dual radio router is a versatile wireless router suitable for a variety of transport or industrial deployments. The GW3300 Series router offers single or dual embedded radio modules with any combination of 3G, LTE or LTE450. Integrated WiFi and ignition power management, plus the ability to manage large spikes in voltage makes the GW3300 Series the ideal router for vehicle deployments.
This ruggedised router is designed for use in any vehicle where additional requirements for secure communication and accessibility are one of the highest demands. It can be installed in harsh environments for industrial, transport, emergency and law enforcement markets.

Dual Radio
The GW3300 Series router is a mobile dual radio router offering resilient connectivity using multiple operators and/or mobile technologies. The GW3300 Series router creates extremely reliable, robust and secure broadband data connectivity for all critical applications.

Vehicle Ignition Sense
The router’s ignition sense input can detect when the vehicle’s ignition has been enabled. This means the GW3300 Series router can remain powered on after the vehicle has stopped and the ignition has been turned off. The time delay between ignition off and router power down is configurable.

Active Power Conditioning
Vehicle power systems often experience transients and there can be substantial voltage dip during engine start up. The GW3300 Series router incorporates active power conditioning, which is designed to accommodate the voltage dips, surges and transients commonly found in vehicles. This built-in power conditioning removes the need for use of external power conditioners.

Dual SIM
Dual SIM architecture ensures that a backup 3G or LTE network can take over should the primary network fail. The router detects a network problem and fails over to a standby SIM/APN. As well as standard SIM sockets, E-SIM functionality is also available.

SMS Management
The GW3300 Series router supports SMS, so if the packet switched side of the network is down you can still send commands to the router to perform diagnostics, reboot the router and so on.

GPS Receiver
The GW3300 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 tracking server periodically. The GPS antenna socket includes a 3.3V power source for powering an active GPS antenna.

The GW3300 Series router has integrated dual band (2.4GHZ & 5GHz) 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi support. It is capable of supporting both Access Point mode and Station mode concurrently if required. Additional WiFi modules can be included to replace embedded radio modules allowing the router to support both 2.4 and 5 GHz frequencies simultaneously.

• 1 or 4 Ethernet ports
• GigE capability

Centralised Management & Service Monitoring
The GW3300 Series router benefits from Activator, the Virtual Access centralised configuration management and monitoring system. Activator simplifies router deployment and ongoing management with its advanced automated services.
