RUTX50 is an "all in one" device, combining the function of a Router, Switch, Mobile LTE gateway, GPS, and a dual-band WiFi access point.
This device is similar to RUTX11, but it has a 5G modem.
This is a rugged, industrial alternative to consumer routers. It's intended for customers that want a router that "just works" as a drop-in replacement for a "home router".
This all-in-one "router" has:
- 1x WAN port (Gigabit)
- 4x LAN switch ports (Gigabit)
- 1x 5G LTE mobile modem. Up to 3.3 Gbps (1x modem, 2x SIM card slots for failover)
- 1x GNSS (GPS - can be used on a boat or mobile home)
- 1x WiFi (simultaneous dual-band, 2.4Ghz, and 5Ghz).
Included in the box:
- Router RUTX50
- 18W PSU power adapter
- 4x LTE antennas (swivel, SMA male)
- 2x WiFi antennas (swivel, RP-SMA male)
- 1x GNSS antenna (adhesive, SMA male, 3 m cable)
- Ethernet cable (1.5 m)
- SIM Adapter kit
- Quick Start Guide
Tips and things to know:
- This device is "half open-source". The operating system is based on OpenWRT, so you can gain root access via SSH, but you won't be able to install a different OS.
- There are 2 SIM slots, but only 1 LTE modem. This means that only one connection is possible at the time, but the modem can fail over to the second carrier/SIM if the primary connection drops. Great for a sailing boat or mobile home connection.
- The operating system on this router is RutOS, a modified version of OpenWRT with a nicer user interface.
- This device is manufactured in Lithuania. I think this is neat - we don't produce too much electronics in Europe
