Industry’s First M-Class LTE Wireless Router

For M2M and IoT Applications
The Encore Networks EN-400™ cellular router is the first router developed for the new LTE Category M1 (CAT M) network. CAT M provides a low-latency LTE connection with speeds equivalent to current 2G networks. CAT M technology provides several advantages for IoT applications:

  • Lower hardware costs
  • Lower power consumption—ideal for power sensitive deployments like solar or battery powered applications
  • Better building penetration—for devices deployed in basements, wire closets, or other dense industrial areas
  • Better tower density—more devices can share the same tower
  • Lower data usage means lower data costs

Carriers are shutting down their 2G networks, making the EN-400™ an ideal replacement for existing 2G devices facing transport extinction. It delivers reliable cellular connectivity for IoT applications on new CAT M networks. It is comparable in cost to 2G solutions, offers more functionality and security than 2G modems and has the long life expectancy of LTE. The EN-400™ router is the perfect solution for mission critical low bit rate applications.

Manage the EN-400™ with enCloud™ EN™ cellular routers provide exceptional features at a value price. The EN-400™ is no exception. 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.

All of the EN™ 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™ routers easier, including Cellular data limit enforcement for individual devices 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 customers.
