Thanks to its functional and robust design, the usability in a temperature range from -25 °C to +70 °C and its E1 automotive certification, the NB2710 is excellently suited for use in buses and other road vehicles.
The NB2710 enables wireless access to the Internet by use of up to two LTE modules. The usage of multiple mobile communications modules allows channel bonding and thus a higher data transmission speed. Thanks to the integrated load balancing function, the data traffic can optimally be distributed.
Depending on the network coverage, the router switches seamlessly between LTE, UMTS, or GSM using of the Mobile IP protocol. The router can manage up to six SIM cards, which, together with the modern WAN Link Manager, assure a high availability in network connections from different providers.
To enable WiFi for passengers, an WiFi access point according to standard IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n is integrated and also a 5 port Ethernet switch is part of the equipment.
The RS-232 serial interface can act as serial device server or system console. Furthermore, the serial line can be assigned to the SDK and be controlled from there. The NB2710 comes also with two isolated binary inputs and two relay outputs for direct connection of sensors and actuators. The logic for the inputs/outputs is implemented by the user in the SDK environment on the router. The USB port enables configuration and firmware update from memory stick. You may also configure it as a device server. Please ask for support of your special USB device.
The router firmware supports common VPN technologies such as IPsec and OpenVPN in both, server and client mode. Simplified handling of a Public Key Infrastructure lets the user securely connect two NB2710 through a VPN tunnel without knowledge about cryptography.
