The number of connected devices worldwide will double by 2030. This is due to recent advances in processing power, memory, power storage, and internet connectivity.
By 2020 the average UK household member had access to as many as 9 devices. As the PSTN Switch-Off approaches and services move to the All IP network, the need for routers using SIMs has never been higher.Enquire Now
An IoT router, also known as an IoT gateway, connects multiple devices to the internet in a network. They enable a flow of data back and forth from a user or data centre to a device or system.
All IoT routers send data from one place to another. What varies is the amount of data sent, the technologies used and the levels of security.
IoT Routers can send any amount of data, depending on the configuration. Some routers utilise mobile networks via a SIM, whilst others send data via wired broadband. In the professional IoT market, routers are often set up to use multiple paths to provide increased reliability and avoid downtime. When we move towards the industrial sectors where connectivity is 'critical', fully managed and encrypted solutions like CSL Router Pro are required to meet standards and avoid cybersecurity issues.
IoT routers transfer important data from devices, sending it to the cloud or a monitoring centre. A 4-hour network outage in a business, retail store or factory, for example, could result in millions of pounds in lost revenue. To mitigate this risk of any downtime, our IoT routers offer 4G failover, providing portable internet when wired broadband is unavailable. Dual SIM routers are also available, using two different MNOs (mobile network operators) with totally independent core infrastructures.
Routers used to transmit people’s sensitive information or to monitor the acidity of a water reservoir must have the highest levels of security. Our IoT routers use VPNs and sophisticated authentication to secure the transmitted data. Without this level of protection, businesses or premises could expose themselves and their customers' sensitive information to the risks of the open internet.
IoT routers typically use a connectivity management platform (CMP). They provide businesses with a constant stream of valuable data on usage and network stability. These platforms also provide remote access to the system via the Router. In the critical national infrastructure sector, in industries like water and energy, sending an engineer to the site represents a substantial cost. Being able to diagnose and fix problems remotely is essential.
Connected. Secure. Live.
The routers we provide keep your devices connected whatever the situation. They are 4G enabled, making them ideal for when a wired connection is unreliable or unavailable.
We understand that security is of the highest importance so we ensure the data being sent to and from your devices is encrypted. We have several options to choose from and they are all ready to be used for a wide variety of applications. Whether you need connectivity on a farm in a remote area or for a smart energy management project, our routers can meet your requirements. Our Routers offer:
This company selected CSL Router to provide secure, reliable connectivity across their network of security fog solutions. These systems, with remote access available via the cloud, can be relied upon 24/7.
They needed a trustworthy partner for IoT connectivity to ensure the best service and reliability. After looking at various options, they identified CSL Router as the ideal solution to meet their IoT requirements.
Cloudforests required a wireless connectivity solution to enable them to livestream footage from their sites, to their subscribers and partners. Fixed-line broadband was not an option at these locations, so they turned to CSL to help.
