Get instant network connectivity for your Wireless and Wired Ethernet enabled devices; just power up the router, wait about 2-3 minutes for complete boot-up, plug-in or connect your device(s) and go. Ideal for deployment as a primary connection solution where a wired connection to the Internet is not available.
The AER2100/1600 and IBR900 will also support traditional wired data networks like DSL/Cable/Fiber for maximum network flexibility by increasing your Internet availability to ensure maximum uptime with business continuity features like 4G-LTE failover/failback. When configured, the router detects network failures in your primary connection and seamlessly switches over to the LTE or another specified active connected data source – keeping your network online.
Our Equipment Rental Rates include Free Delivery and Pickup of the rental equipment within the Greater Honolulu Delivery Area (Postal Zip Codes 968xx - However, not at the airport terminal itself). Please inquire about delivery to other areas on Oahu, the other Hawaiian islands and the Continental U.S..
The Bandwidth provided by each of the integrated Multi-Band LTE-A modems can Theoretically provide up to 150Mbps (600Mbps with the IBR900-600M) of Downlink bandwidth and up to 50Mbps of Uplink Bandwidth when connected to an un-congested Wireless 4G-LTE-A supporting network in an Excellent reception area. HOWEVER, in all reality, the Typical connection speeds we have seen are 15-40 Mbps Downlink and an Uplink of about 15-40 Mbps - it has been determined that this is a limitation of the wireless carriers.
The Typical 4G LTE connection (as advertised by the carriers) is about 3-12Mbps per LTE Channel (with bursts up to 15Mbps).
The Typical 3G connection is 600-1400kbps (with bursts up to 3100kbps).
4G LTE and 3G speeds vary widely depending on the reception of the 3G or LTE channel(s), the wireless carrier's support of 4G/3G protocols on the portion of their network that you are on and the actual amount of bandwidth available from the carrier at any given time and location due to overall network usage and congestion.
