LTE CAT 1 Cellular Router
The Encore Networks EN-1000™ high-performance router is the first commercial grade router developed for LTE Category 1 (CAT 1) service. Like all LTE services, CAT 1 provides a low-latency broadband connection, but CAT 1 speeds capped at 10 Mbps down / 5 Mbps up (DSL speeds). These speeds are faster than typical 3G services but the EN-1000™ price point is lower than most 3G and competing 4G equipment. This makes the EN-1000™ on LTE CAT 1 an ideal replacement for aging 3G cellular data equipment and a low-cost entry point into 4G.

The EN-1000™ is an attractively priced LTE router for value conscious users new to cellular applications or those looking to bridge the gap between 3G and 4G technologies. For a fraction of the cost of other 4G hardware, users can have the reliability of LTE at speeds adequate for several applications including business continuity, digital signage, point-of-sale, kiosk operation and other data dependent applications. Like all of the EN™ Series cellular routers the EN-1000™ provides exceptional features at value price. The EN™ Series routers come with a three-year hardware warranty, an intuitive GUI interface, built in Firewall, VPN support and advanced IP routing protocols like DMNR, GRE, and IPsec.
Manage the EN-1000™ with enCloud™
In addition, all of the EN™ Series routers can be monitored and managed with Encore’s enterprise management system enCloud™. enCloud™ offers many features that will make managing your entire network of EN™ Series routers easier, including Cellular data limit enforcement for individual and group data plans, included firmware updates, no touch deployment for new hardware, and reseller and customer tiers to assist in delivering managed network services for multiple customers.
