Robustel's R5020 series 5G industrial router

Robustel offers the R5020 5G industrial router

  • Robustel’s R5020 series 5G industrial router complies with the requirements of 3GPP Release 15, the standards body that publishes technical specifications for 3ᵉ, 4ᵉ and 5ᵉ generation cellular networks.
  • Therefore, it can provide wireless data transmission across 5G, 4G and 3G mobile communication networks anywhere in the world.

The R5020 router is suitable for enterprises that want to take advantage of the potential of 5G communication technologies. Its RobustOS operating system is based on a Linux kernel. Its CPU integrates more processing capabilities than traditional LTE routers. This allows manufacturers to implement more advanced Edge Computing applications. These applications can be developed with the RobustOS software development kit (SDK).

Its small size (125 x 100 x 48 mm) and integrated processing functions make the R5020 router particularly well suited for embedded applications and for replacing wired communication links. E-Mark certified, this router complies with the requirements of the EU/CEE regulations for automotive components. It can therefore be used in vehicles and supports most GNSS positioning technologies.

According to the manufacturer, no extensive technical knowledge is required for its configuration during use. Thanks to its industrial interfaces (1 x RS-232 + 1 x RS-485, 1 x DI + 1 x DO), the R5020 also paves the way for the deployment of IoT applications requiring high-speed Internet access in various sectors: production, agriculture, security, smart cities, etc.

The R5020 router is compatible with the RCMS (Robustel Cloud Manager Service) software platform that allows users to manage all routers and update their firmware remotely and in batches. It is also possible, with RCMS RobustVPN, to create client/client VPN links by operating with any DATA subscription on the market. The R5020 complies with IPSEC, DMVPN and Open VPN protocols and can be deployed when implementing virtual private networks (VPN), guaranteeing the reliability and security of data transmissions.

To interface with cellular communication networks, the R5020 router is equipped with four antennas and two SIM card slots to handle cold redundancy. Equipped with four Gigabit Ethernet ports (10/100/1000) and an 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi module, it can be configured to use the Ethernet or Wi-Fi link as the primary interface to the Internet and switch to the 4G/5G network only if the primary link fails.
