YORK, Pa., April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sixnet, a Red Lion Business, today announced the availability of Long Term Evolution (LTE) support for its EnterprisePro™ cellular routers. Effective immediately, LTE support provides customers with faster 4G wireless connectivity as well as the flexibility of backwards compatibility to 3G and 2G networks. This new offering is ideal for small and mid-sized organizations that are looking for increased speeds when using cellular technology for primary or WAN backup connectivity.
The EnterprisePro series enables customers to seamlessly use USB sticks to take advantage of LTE wireless broadband technology. This functionality is currently compatible with LTE networks from Verizon and will also work with AT&T, Sprint, Bell Mobility, Telus and Rogers later this year. Often referred to as 4G (fourth generation) technology, LTE provides faster speeds and increased bandwidth to better support landline back-up, video surveillance or any application that requires Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities.
"More organizations are using network-based applications and data to run business-critical operations, so having LTE support gives customers the advantage of greater speeds and more flexibility when using cellular technology to access information," said Mahesh Patel, director of wireless offer management at Red Lion Controls. "Our cellular routers, when combined with LTE, give businesses with remote locations, a strong solution for primary WAN backup connections. This helps to keep network-based operations, and day-to-day business, running smoothly."
Sixnet's EnterprisePro cellular routers provide cost-effective broadband connectivity, a robust enterprise level feature set and remote management capabilities generally found on only the most advanced platforms. With standards-based TCP/IP protocols (OSPF, BGP, RIP) and VPN support for IPSec, SSL, and redundancy via VRRP, EnterprisePro routers also offer a fully configurable stateful firewall, out-of-band management support and can be fully managed by Red Lion's SixView Manager™ software.
