MoRE: Advanced Modem/Router Engine
WHAT IS MORE
MoRE is the acronym of the device functions: advanced Modem/Router Engine. It is in fact a 2/3/4G modem/router with advanced firewall and VPN router functionalities. Simplicity of use is one of its main features; much of the functionality is accessible thru the front panel graphical display and a comprehensive HTTP/SNMP interface.
It has been thought to enable remote connectivity to transmitters, encoders, receivers and virtually any equipment present on site connectable thru Ethernet. Think of the advantages: you can access web servers, ftp, SNMP agents, and firmware upgrades of each device tunneling the communication thru a proprietary LAN/WAN or the internet thru a VPN.
MoRE on connectivity: enables internet connectivity thru many types of media, it can do load balancing, selection of media to be used (example: use 2/3/4G just in case DSL is not present, or vice versa), this means seamless availability of all devices thru IP at ALL TIMES, with total security, thanks to an internal firewall and VPN engine.
MoRE on automation: An internal scripting engine enables onsite monitoring of parameters thru IP. Using a simple scripting language (the ANTScript) enables the user to create elaborated automations which can report complex situations or correct and take action over situations that can occur on-site.
MoRE on GPIO: An RS485 bus connection is present on the back panel, it can be connected to a large series of probes and I/O’s:
relay outputs, contact inputs, analog in (0-5v 4-20mA), analog out (0-5v 4-20mA), RF probes, audio probes, quality meters, etc. All of these measurements can be viewed and alarmed thru SNMP and can be used by the scripting engine. Using I/O can help monitor other onsite equipment like fire alarms, door switches, generators, etc....
MoRE on reliability: MoRE is a robust system with a main and a backup power supply. All power failures are backed by the internal battery. If more autonomy is needed an external battery can be installed. The external battery is charged by an internal battery charger which keeps it ready for the next power failure. All power status is reported thru SNMP or WEB.
MoRE on simplicity: MoRE is extremely simple to use and install, thanks to a very accurate manual and a simple web server application, connecting to the internet or your personal VPN can be done in minutes.
MoRE on personality: Advanced functionalities are possible thanks to the Linux operating system which enables where requested personalization based on customer requests. Both Hardware and software features can be tweaked to your systems needs.
Main characteristics are:
- No annual fees to be paid for VPN or firewall usage.
- Internal batteries guarantee 8 hours of work, more autonomy with external batteries.
- Dual LAN enables connection transparency: maintains the same IP addresses of devices onsite
- The UMTS modem understands automatically the best connectivity and connects automatically to the best cell.
- On system RS485 and RS232 enables local communication with proprietary I/O
- The presence of an in-band filter, enhances immunity to harsh RF environments like the ones in transmission sites, enabling ideal connectivity to 2/3/4G networks.
HOW TO USE MORE
Can be used in the following ways:
1. MAIN: just 2/3/4G modem/router
2. BACKUP: DSL or satellite modem/router with a 2/3/4G backup
MoRE works as a unique gateway: it could be the internal 2/3/4G modem
or an external gateway as ADSL, IP via SAT, etc...
More acts as a 2/3/4G backup to an unavailable main connection.
When the main connection fails, MoRE restores connectivity to the control center thru the 2/3/4G modem.
