The NetModule NB1600 is a powerful and programmable industrial mobile broadband router for remote management, telemetry, condition monitoring, CCTV, ATMs, vending machines and other M2M applications.

For mobile internet access a GSM/UMTS or a GSM/UMTS/LTE modem is embedded. The best available service is selected automatically.

As a special highlight NB1600 offers two Ethernet ports that are highly configurable. Used as LAN ports they form a two port switch or have separated, routed IP networks. Configured as WAN port, an external modem or land line can be attached in order to add redundancy.

The RS-232 serial interface can act as serial device server or system console. Legacy equipment that does not have any Ethernet or USB port can be hooked up this way. Furthermore, the serial line can be assigned to the SDK and be controlled from there.

The NB1600 has two isolated binary inputs and two relay outputs for direct connection of sensors and actuators. The logic for the inputs/outputs is implemented by the user in the SDK environment on the router.

The USB port enables configuration and firmware update from memory stick. You may also configure it as a device server. Please ask for support of your special USB device.

The router firmware supports common VPN technologies such as IPsec and OpenVPN. Both, server and client mode is possible. Simple handling of a Public key infrastructure makes is easy to connect two NB1600 trough a VPN tunnel.

Further services include DHCP server, DNS proxy server, DDNS agent, SNMP agent, telnet server, SSH server, web server, e-mail client and SMS client. The device is administrated via an easy to use web GUI or the command line interface. Over the air software update is both easy and fail-safe.
