Now we can offer them static IP support on both CDMA and GPRS networks worldwide.”

The 1xMG-401S model joins the family of Proxicast LAN-Cell Mobile Gateway products providing fast, reliable, cost-effective Internet and VPN access wherever cellular data service is available. The LAN-Cell’s integrated 4-port switch, router, VPN client, firewall, and high-speed cellular data modem allow unlimited Ethernet based computers and devices to share a single cellular data connection and to seamlessly and securely connect to corporate networks from any remote location. The LAN-Cell is ideal for remote telemetry, SCADA, machine-to-machine communication (M2M) and field data collection as well as shared Internet access for mobile workgroups.
