Proroute RAPID NR550 high speed 5G router

Meet RAPID NR550, the first in the new range of high speed 5G cellular communications solutions from Proroute.  The NR550 Industrial 5G Router is a multi-purpose, high speed 5G router that caters for the widest scope of 5G Internet connectivity requirements.

Good looking enough to be used as a home or office 5G router and also meet the demands of office and home 5G connectivity with 4×4 MiMo cellular connectivity to provide some of the fastest 5G connection speeds in an industrial 5G router and Gigabit Ethernet and dual band, intelligent WiFi to deliver long range, high speed wireless connectivity for the demands of home and office life.  The NR550 router also has industry standard SMA antenna connectors so can utilise external 5G antennas.

The RAPID NR550 is also a very practical and durable solution for many M2M applications delivering a reliable 5G connection with ping reboot and intelligent cellular keep alive features built-in, along with all the usual features such as port forwarding and secure VPN connectivity as well as the dual SIM failover option to use a back-up SIM / Network in the event of the primary SIM / Network being unavailable.  If you really need it, the NR550 has the console port to provide RS232 connectivity and even comes supplied with a serial interface cable as well as both magnetic mount and high gain paddle antennas for the 5G modem.  If these antennas don’t suit your installation requirements, especially for remote management and monitoring applications where you may need hole mounted, magnetic mounted, roof mounted and outdoor 5G antennas then the RAPID NR550 has standard SMA antenna connectors so can easily use alternative 5G antennas.

All in all, the Proroute RAPID NR550 is a reliable, practical and secure 5G Internet connectivity device for home, office and M2M applications.
