3G/4G/LTE Cellular Data Features
On the Vigor 2832 series, the USB port can host a compatible 3G/4G USB modem for access to the cellular network for full Internet Access.
The 3G/4G connection can be used as your primary/only Internet access, or as backup to your main ADSL line connection. This facility is ideal for homes or offices which don't want to pay fixed line + broadband rental and also for temporary locations, or those to where fixed lines aren't available but for businesses, having 3G/4G as a failover to your main connectivity means that your business stays online when your broadband doesn't!.
With the Vigor 2832n, your local users can be connected wirelessly to the router, so instant free 'hotspots' can be deployed quickly and easily. Mains power is required for the router's PSU, but this could be from a mobile generator or equivalent so you need to plan for this.
Please check here for the latest USB modem compatibility; the phone companies (Vodafone, EE, O2, 3 etc.) continuously introduce new models, so additional Modem Support is added continuously. If you have a new modem, not yet supported, please contact us as support for new models is frequently added. Also it is possible to obtain logs for our engineers to assess.
The Vigor 2832 and 3G/4G cellular modem setup is ideal for:
- Backup to your primary Internet feed (ADSL, cable etc.)
