Ensuring connectivity for a corporation's office is essential. While redundant copper or fiber connections are useful, different fixed access methods often share the same infrastructure which means there is a chance they might fail at the same time. By contrast, mobile networks use air as a medium and a different infrastructure to fixed networks. This, together with the high level of efficiency of 4G networks in terms of latency and speed, make them the ideal backup system.
Teldat-4Ge provides a non-intrusive way to enable mobile access in corporate routers that do not natively support mobile connections or that are installed in communications cabinets with poor coverage. Teldat-4Ge is a peripheral device that works with the router to secure and maintain control over the communications. It can operate as a standalone device.
No configuration required, just connect to Ethernet and it´s ready to go. If PoE is enabled, you only need the Ethernet cable; if not, you'll need to plug it.
The device uses auto provisioning to download the configuration (similar to an IP phone) from the office router.
The router controls the mobile connection, applying the same connection, security and QoS policies used for the fixed connection.
To achieve maximum coverage, the device is usually placed somewhere on a wall inside the office where it can go unnoticed.
Teldat-4Ge is the fastest, most effective and versatile solution for quality 3G/4G mobile connectivity.
Mobile networks are unquestionably the ideal backup connectivity solution where wired networks are unavailable. However, corporate routers are not usually prepared to handle a wireless connection or are housed in locations where mobile network coverage is lousy. Teldat-4Ge provides the solution to these problems. The device’s compact design makes it ideal for placing inside the office for optimum coverage and it connects to the corporate router via Ethernet.
The existing corporate router directly controls the mobile connection and integrates it with security, QoS and network management policies (Teldat-4Ge can operate as a standalone device).
With automatic provisioning and Power over Ethernet support, Teldat-4Ge can be efficiently and securely installed in just a few minutes, without requiring qualified personnel.
Using the mobile network to back up the fixed network, integrating both connections into the same network infrastructure.

The router managing the fixed connections also controls the mobile connections and therefore applies the same security and QoS policies.
A VLAN is used to set up the data connection between the router and Teldat-4Ge, creating what is, for all intents and purposes, a virtual interface on the router.
Teldat-4Ge does not store the configuration, rather it receives it via DHCP during start-up. This means that you do not need to do anything to the device before physically installing it.
The device can be managed from the existing router, so you do not need to reserve an address for managing the device or register it on the management systems.
With Power over Ethernet support (a PoE injector is available for non-PoE switches) it can be powered simply using a single Ethernet cable making installation quick and easy.
Designed to be mounted on a wall to get the best signal strength.
The device goes unnoticed in work/transit areas thanks to its compact size and elegant design.
In "Router mode" it provides Ethernet devices with mobile connectivity for mobile offices or device backup.
