Dual Sim With Failover: Two SIM card slots that allow you to use two different cellular networks for your mobile internet connection. You can switch between them automatically or manually, depending on the signal strength, data usage, or other criteria. This way, you can always stay connected and avoid downtime or extra costs.
Ethernet, Serial (RS232, RS485): Four Ethernet ports and two serial ports that enable you to connect your router to various devices and sensors. You can use the Ethernet ports for wired network access or as a WAN port with automatic failover. You can use the serial ports for RS232 or RS485 communication protocols, which are widely used in industrial and automation applications.
GNSS for location services: Built-in GNSS receiver that can track your router’s location and time synchronization using GPS, GLONASS, or BeiDou satellites. You can use this feature to monitor and manage your router’s position, speed, and direction, as well as to optimize your network performance and security.
With Remote Management System: The RUT956 comes with a free remote management system that allows you to control and configure your router from anywhere, using a web browser or a mobile app. You can also use the remote management system to update your router’s firmware, check its status and performance, and access its logs and statistics.
High-performance cellular module: Supports 4G LTE Cat 4, 3G, and 2G networks, offering up to 150 Mbps download and 50 Mbps upload speeds. It also features dual SIM slots, allowing you to switch between different operators and technologies automatically or manually. You can also use different PDNs for multiple network access and services. With this particular router model, you can enjoy fast and stable internet connection wherever you are.
Versatile wireless and wired options: Supports Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, with access point and station modes. You can connect up to 100 Wi-Fi devices simultaneously, and use the hotspot feature to create a captive portal with an internal or external radius server, SMS authorization, and a customizable landing page. The RUT956 also has four Ethernet ports, one of which can be used as a WAN port with automatic failover. You can also use the bridge mode to connect your router directly to another device on the LAN.
Advanced features and functionality: The RUT956 is not just a router, but a powerful device that can integrate with various devices and sensors using the input/output connector block, RS232, and RS485 interfaces. You can also use the GNSS feature to track your router’s location and time synchronization. The RUT956 runs on RutOS, a Linux-based operating system that offers a wide range of configuration and customization options, such as static and dynamic routing, firewall, QoS, DDNS, VPN, SSH, and more.
Ready for any challenge: This industrial router is designed to withstand harsh environments and operate reliably in industrial and automation, retail, transportation, and enterprise applications. It has a durable and compact metal housing, with an IP30 ingress protection rating. It also has a wide input voltage range, low power consumption, and surge protection.
