Lantech Multifunction 6-in-1 Integrated Routers Deliver the Best Solution for Onboard / Trackside Applications

Lantech Communications Global Inc. is pleased to announce a series of multifunction 6-in-1 integrated routers as the key device of their total solution for rolling stock onboard / trackside applications.

Amanda Lee, Vice President of Lantech: The series is packed with Lantech’s cutting-edge technology, including powerful and rugged hardware and innovative software features. We believed that the series is able to satisfy our customers with stable and efficient data communication services in wireless era.

Integrated Routers for Onboard / Trackside ApplicationsDual Concurrent LTE Design 4G/3G for Load-Balancing

With up to 2 mobile LTE modules, 4 SIM card slots, Lantech router can allow auto-swap, failover & failback between multiple service providers for real non-stop connection. With concurrent LTE modules, it can also allocate bandwidth by “Load Balancing**” with 8 schemes between multiple WANs.

With one mobile LTE module, 2 SIM card slots, the router provides redundant link between two service providers.

Completed location solution is supported, including GPS, Russian GLONASS, Beidou, and Galileo.

IEEE 802.11ac One Band Radio up to 2.6Gbps Bandwidth

With IEEE 802.11ac capability, Lantech router can operate either 5GHz or 2.4GHz bands, offering the maximum speed of 2.6Gbps bandwidth (1.3Gbps per 802.11ac module). It is also compatible with 802.11b/g/n that can work with 2.4GHz for longer range transmission.

MIMO Technology with 3T3R and Standard SMA / Optional QMA Type Connectors

Lantech router adapts MIMO technology with smart antenna transmission and reception for 3T3R. With six external detachable antenna SMA/QMA** connectors and optional antennas, the router can have better Wi-Fi & LTE/GPS coverage. It can support unlimited concurrent users for Wi-Fi hotspot application.

2-Port Serial Connection, Modbus / DNP3** Gateway

Lantech router builds in 2 port serial connection for RS232; RS422/ 485 in which RS422/485 has 2.5KV isolation protection. The built-in Modbus gateway can convert Modbus RTU/ASCII to Modbus TCP for device control. It also can support optional DNP3** gateway over serial ports.

USB Port for Backup, Restore Configuration and Upgrade Firmware*

The built-in USB port can upload/download/upgrade the firmware through USB dongle for router replacement.

Optional External USB to Micro SD** for Storage Backup or Multimedia Resources

The optional external USB to micro SD** can have configuration management, data backup or pre-store the multimedia resources for content application. User can designate the route via load-balancing scheme to upload/download the data per request.

It supports dual-image firmware* to choose which one to start.

Optional 2 GT Smart Bypass Protection

The optional bypass relay is set to bypass the router to the next one when power is off in order to protect the network from crashing. Lantech bypass caters to remain in bypass mode until the router is completely booting up when power is back to avoid another network lost. Also it will be activated when detecting the router is hanged or link down.

Optional TWCC** (Train Wireless Carriage Coupling) for Auto Discovery, Redundant Ring & Auto Coupling

Lantech router supports series supports optional TWCC** (Train Wireless Carriage Coupling) that enables auto wireless coupling to reconnect APs.

Optional 802.11r Fast Roaming < 50ms**

Lantech router supports fast roaming in less than 50ms** in coordination with Lantech Wireless Controller to allow encryption keys to be stored on all of the APs in a network. Client mode supports PMK** Caching and pre-authentication.

Integrated Routers for Onboard / Trackside Applications

Wireless WMM QoS

Lantech router supports 802.11e standard which defines a set of Quality of Service for wireless LAN applications as well as WMM (WIFI multimedia).

Advanced Security & 16 SSIDs

The security support standards including 64/128bits WEP, WPA/WPA2 PSK (TKIP*, AES), 802.1x** ensures the best security and active defense against security treads. Lantech router supports up to 16 SSIDs, each SSID has its independent security and encryption.

Load Balancing** with 8 Mechanism for Multi-WANs (Premium License)

Lantech router supports Load Balancing** for LTE/WAN connections. There are eight schemes with Load balancing** function:

PackAlgorithmDescription
StandardFixedManually route by traffic type through fixed WAN link.
Basic PackageFailoverRoutes connections through preferred WAN link while others stand-by. Sequentially activate another link if preferred link fail occurs. Once failover will not failback until link loss.
PriorityRoutes connections through preferred WAN link as primary while others follow by. Ex. Wi-Fi client>LTE>others
Weighted Round-RobinEvenly distribute the traffic over all working WAN links in circular order according to the specified weights.
Custom RouteRouting through the selected WAN for each specific traffic, ex: TCP/UDP port number and IP address.
Full Package (incl. basic package)Sticky Session*Binding all connections in an application session to particular WAN link to ensure all connections in the session are routed to the same WAN link , that is suitable for security services like online payment etc.
Smallest Load*Routes connections through the WAN link with highest free bandwidth ratio.

The ratio = 1 – (traffic load / the capability of a WAN link).

The traffic load could be defined by downstream, upstream or total traffic

Fastest*Routes connections through the WAN link with lowest latency time.

VPN and Firewall

Besides traditional VPN peer to peer tunneling, Lantech router supports latest Multi-Site VPN function that is an efficient way for mesh tunneling. The registration is under cloud service and encrypted by SSH makes the connection easy and safe. It supports Multi-Site VPN, Open VPN, L2TP, IPsec and PPTP** for various VPN applications. The built-in Layer-4 firewall includes DoS**, IP address filter / Mac address filter* / TCP/UDP port number.

Environmental Monitoring for Inside Router Info & Alerting; Graphic Wi-Fi & LTE Signal Strength and TX/RX Rate Display

The built-in environmental monitoring can detect router ambient temperature, voltage, current and total PoE load where can send the syslog, email** and SMS** alert when abnormal. The graphic Wi-Fi & LTE signal strength and TX/RX rate display shows connection status at a glance

Cloud/Host Based InstaView**/InstaAir** Software for Router / Fleet Management and Monitoring

Lantech InstaView** can offer fixed location router central management, configuration, and monitoring via secured Cloud or Host server. InstaAir** can offer fleet router management including the GPS tracking, remote configuration/upgrade, monitoring/alerting and report function

Editable Login Page of Captive Portal

Lantech router supports editable captive portal function that allows administrator to force end-users redirect to authentication page.

DIDO for Alarm & Email** Notice; Event Log; Remote Web/SMS** Control

2 sets of DIDO function can support additional high/low physical contact for designate applications besides Port / Power events, for example, DIDO function can trigger alarm if the router was moved or stolen. In case of events, the router will immediately send email** and trap. The event log can be sent via syslog, emails or trigger the alarm relay. When the router is at remote area with limited access, Web/SMS** control can help to get router status or remotely reboot by Web/SMS**.

Wide Range Dual Input Voltage from 9V-56VDC (24V model) or Dual Isolated Input Voltage from 16.8-137.5V (WV model)

Lantech router is able to work from dual 9VDC to 56VDC input voltage (24V model) or 16.8V ~137.5V DC isolated input (WV model) for PoE at/af with PoE budget 60W that is particular good for vehicle, rail train, depot etc applications. For routers without PoE function, the power input range can be dual 9VDC to 60VDC.

Ruggedized EN50155 Design and FCC*/CE* & E-marking** Certificate

EN50155 routers are verified with EN50155*, EN61373*, EN45545 standard with IP65/54 housing while others are IP30 protected. All models passed serious tests under extensive Industrial EMI and environmental vibration and shocks standards. With CE* & FCC* radio certification for LTE and E-marking** certificate, the router is best for outdoor community, vehicle, power substation, process control automation etc. For more usage flexibilities, the router supports extended operating temperature from -40°C to 70°C.

Note: Specifications vary by model and/or series. *Future Release **Optional
