Teltonika RUTX50

RUTX50 M2M IoT 5G Router

RUTX50 is the new Industrial 5G router from Teltonika.  It provides a high speed LTE 5G Internet connection using a 5G SIM card inserted into the SIM slot of the router. The embedded 5G Modem provides the connection to the 5G network for lightning fast 5G mobile broadband. This is delivered to the LAN via high speed, Gigabit Ethernet for wired connectivity and the RUTX50 router has built-in 802.11AX WiFi6 to provide high speed WiFi hotspot for wireless users.

The RUTX50 router from Teltonika provides a reliable, secure and practical solution and with the familiar RUTOS used by hundreds of thousands of customers with the popular 4G router range (RUT950, RUT955, RUT240, RUTX09, RUTX11, RUTX12, RUTX14) users will find the only difference is the super fast 5G Internet connection. Of course you might also notice the price because the cost of 5G modems is still pretty high so expect to pay a premium for the new Teltonika RUTX50 5G Router.

Antenna Connections

The RUTX50 has 4 x SMA Female ports on the side for the connection of the supplied 4 x 5G Antennas (elbow joint, 5G paddle antenna) so this router can support the connection of alternative antennas. This means the RUTX50 can utilise a wide range of 4×4 MiMo antennas dependant upon the installation.

For example, if using this router in a cabinet then you may need a hole mounted, dome or puck 5G antenna, or for installation inside a building then an outdoor 5G antenna such as a directional or omni-directional 4×4 MiMo 5G Antenna to ensure the optimum 5G performance for this industrial 5G router.
