MC400 for the AER Series

Dual Modem Technology for More Bandwidth and Higher Availability

Included with the Cradlepoint AER Series, the MC400 Integrated 3G/4G/LTE Modem fuses enterprise reliability with unparalleled agility for networking at the edge. Adding a second MC400 modem provides enterprises greater bandwidth for additional users and today's demanding applications. In addition, more and more enterprises are demanding the ability to support diverse LTE carriers within a single router for high availability requirements.

By adding dual modem technology, enterprises have the ability to:

  • Load balance and add burst bandwidth for peak periods
  • Deploy multiple wireless backup connections to help acquire 99.999% uptime
  • Diversify WAN paths for increased redundancy
  • “Cut-the-Wire” for combined high-speed 4G LTE networks from diverse carriers

Benefits

  • Higher availability: cut-the-wire networking solution with 4G LTE for primary and failover connectivity
  • Ultimate WAN Diversity™: Combine 4G LTE with dual-modem, dual-SIM, and multi-carrier functionality; Ethernet; and/or WiFi as WAN
  • Future-proof your network: Single versatile hardware platform supports several carriers
  • Flexibility: Switch SIM cards when you’ve reached your data plan cap
