High Availability and Network Resilience
The M500 is a feature rich industrial class router coupled with robust network processing and Multi-WAN connectivity, purpose built for network resilience and business continuity. The platform support dual SIM and dual LTE radios for carrier redundancy or load balancing between carriers networks. In the event of a connectivity failure of the primary WAN interface, traffic is automatically redirected to the secondary WAN interface. The M500 will also fallback when the primary interface connection is restored. This functionality operates regardless of whether the primary connection is LTE or a wired connection such as fiber, cable or DSL. Load balancing and traffic prioritization mechanisms can be enabled to enhance failover performance and maximize bandwidth utilization for critical applications delivery.
Carrier-grade Wireless LAN
The M500 integrates a 802.11n access point supporting data rates of up to 300Mbps. Security functionality includes: WEP 64/128, WPA(PSK), WPA2(PSK), Mixed WPA/WPA2(PSK), SSID broadcast disable, Wireless MAC address filtering and SSID with Client Isolation to enhance the level of transmission security and access control over the Wireless LAN. Allowing for Wi-Fi Hotspot functionality anywhere there is cellular signal. The captive portal enables highly secure connectivity with multiple authentication options and extensive controls for access and bandwidth management.

LTE can enhance emergency responders operations by delivering high-data-rate services to wide coverage areas. Such communication links can support digital imaging, video streaming, voice, large data download, and other capabilities which cannot be supported over the traditional narrowband network. LTE Wireless broadband networks allow mission-critical information to be exchanged in real-time, anytime, anywhere. Database lookups, dispatch messaging, mug shots, video/ surveillance feeds, and broadcasting can now be achieved within seconds instead of hours.
Billion M500 provides dual LTE modules, enable in-vehicle WiFi, real-time imaging streaming, and medical data transferring with instant failover capability. Ambulance staff is allowed to examine patient media records, plan driving routes, and communicate with emergency room and fleet dispatchers to allocate the available vehicle resource to resolve emergency scenarios. The dual-Radio supports multi-channel video recording and streaming with always-on, extensive broadband feasibility. Thus, Billion M500 can transmit the images of a patient’s injuries from the ambulance to the emergency room for treatment advice and minimize the gaps of medical care upon arrival at hospitals.

- Enhance emergency responders operations by delivering high-data-rate services to full coverage areas.
- Allow mission-critical information to be exchanged in real-time, anytime, anywhere.
- Achieve database lookups, dispatch messaging, mug shots, video/surveillance feeds, and broadcasting within seconds
- Support rapid boot up and wake-on-call functions.
- Reduce delays and enhance driving safety through the integration of tire pressure monitoring system and forwarded collision warning.
When compared to existing 2G/3G M2M cellular devices, the most notable benefit of 4G/LTE is the higher performance and capacity which result in significantly faster download and upload data rates. While faster data rates are great for backbone network communication and remote surveillance industrial applications, the significantly lower latency (time delay) of LTE is more important for M2M industrial applications that rely on real-time information, such as controlling sensitive equipment, industrial alarms, and tracking management.
