Wireless SD-WAN routers receive UK’s ESN Accreditation
The Max BR1 ESN, HD2 MBX and HD4 MBX wireless routers have been certified by UK’s Emergency Services Network (ESN). The routers are now approved for use in the country’s fleet of first responders and emergency services vehicles.
The ESN is the UK’s next generation critical communications infrastructure that aims to improve the country’s mobile network for emergency services, especially in remote areas and at times of network congestion. It will create a single seamless platform for critical communications: connecting front line emergency service users operating vehicles, aircraft and control rooms.
The MAX BR1 ESN and the MBX range of routers are built to provide always-on and secure SD-WAN connectivity in demanding environments. Whether it is ESN, commercial LTE, or in the future 5G, the MBX leverages the bandwidth of multiple connections concurrently to establish high-speed connectivity. In the event that one of the mobile networks encounters a slow and spotty connection, the BR1 ESN safeguards connectivity by seamlessly switching over to other links.
The BR1 ESN is purpose-designed for any deployment environment with extreme temperatures and transient surges. Along with InControl2 remote network management suite, the Max BR1 ESN provides a complete and certified solution that mission-critical emergency service users can rely on.
The MBX series is available in 2 models, the HD2 and HD4. The HD2 can support up to two concurrent LTE-A Pro connections with four SIM cards, while the HD4 can support up to four concurrent LTE-A Pro connections with eight SIM cards. Both models feature interchangeable cellular modules, allowing for easy upgrade to 5G.
