    4G Access?

    fiberopticcoffee New Member

      Is there a 4G access option on the Netvanta series, or an option coming up soon?

      Particularly interested in Verizon, but also interested in general terms.

      Only seeing a 3G option currently available.

      Thanks!

          Not sure about the official plans.  We have typically used a 4G modem product like a Cradlepoint CBA750 or similar.  In AOS products, we often configure a backup Internet route via the Cradlepoint IP address that takes effect when a track fails for the primary ISP.  4G/LTE interfaces or NIMs for NetVanta products would be awesome!

              Yeah we're trying to avoid having a Christmas Tree of devices.

              Also having some issues with Cradlepoint devices bouncing the Ethernet connection once every 1-5 minutes for what appears to be grins and giggles. Would prefer to not have to renegotiate my IPSEC tunnel in the middle of critical data transfers...

              Hello guys... Here is what the roadmap looks like:

              1. External 4G/LTE using a Cradlepoint CBA750B available now. Interop guide should be available soon.

              2. Enable USB port on Routers/IPBGs for 4G/LTE backup using USB radio mid-year 2014

              3. Possible small 4G/LTE router in 2015

              4. 4G/LTE NIM not planned
