HANOVER, Germany -- Networking specialists LANCOM, LTE modem manufacturer Sierra Wireless, and Rohde & Schwarz, a leading provider of wireless test technology, present at CeBIT the first live public demonstration of an LTE business router with a fully integrated multi-mode radio module and pan-European network support. The demo rig can be viewed throughout the exhibition on the LANCOM CeBIT booth in Hall 13, C28.

At the heart of the live demonstration is a pre-production model of the LTE router LANCOM 1681-4G. The device features an integrated Sierra Wireless AirPrime MC 7700 multi-mode LTE modem (LTE 700). The production model of the LANCOM 1681-4G is due to be launched mid-year and will support all European frequency bands including LTE 800, LTE 1800 and LTE 2600.

Acting as the LTE peer is the R&S CMW500, the wideband radio communications tester from Rohde & Schwarz. This multi-technology platform supports LTE FDD and TD-LTE, all currently available 3G and 2G standards, and also wireline technologies. The R&S CMW500 emulates an LTE FDD base station for this demonstration. To simulate a realistic networking scenario, a multi-channel cellular connection (2x2 MIMO) is established between the LANCOM 1681-4G and the R&S CMW500. The connection is used to transmit the type of user data typically generated by an Internet connection, such as FTP uploads and downloads, video streaming and browsing through a web site. The end-to-end connection to the R&S CMW500 allows the achievable LTE data rates of the LANCOM LTE router to be measured in the upstream and downstream directions.

The LANCOM 1681-4G is the first LTE business router for the European market to be presented to the public. The major distinguishing features over previously introduced consumer models include an integrated multi-mode LTE module with fallback options to slower cellular standards such as HSPA+ or UMTS/3G, and its professional VPN functions. Ex-factory the router supports 5 IPsec VPN channels (25 optional), high-security AES encryption and digital certificates. VRRP facilitates the virtual combination of two devices to achieve the highest reliability.
