Support for global 5G, 4G and 3G bands and 3GPP Release 15.

With its on-board smarts, compact size and a competitive price point the R5020 is the perfect solution for customers looking to make the jump to 5G. Offering a similar form factor and feature set to Robustel’s popular R2110 series router the R5020 is also an ideal transitional product for existing Robustel customers to move from LTE to 5G.

The R5020 is powered by Robustel’s operating system RobustOS, a Linux-based OS with a clean, simple and modular user experience developed by Robustel specifically for use in Robustel devices. With additional CPU capabilities compared to traditional LTE routers the R5020 also offers the ability for customers to perform more in-depth EDGE computing tasks through writing applications using the RobustOS Software Development Kit (SDK).

With its on-board smarts, compact size and a competitive price point, the R5020 is the perfect solution for In-vehicle Applications, Fixed-Line Replacement and Failover with minimal configuration or engineering requirements. With its industrial interfaces the R5020 also opens doors for IoT applications in manufacturing, agriculture, security and smart cities that need high speed internet access.

  • Global 5G/4G/3G cellular coverage
  • Supports Ethernet, Wi-fi and 4G/5G internet with WAN-failover
  • Fully programmable Operating System with a well documented SDK
  • Multiple industry standard VPN options available including DMVPN & IPSEC
  • GNSS/GPS & ignition sensing for in-vehicle applications
  • Powerful device management and monitoring functions through RCMS
  • Industrial strength metal enclosure with a small footprint – DIN-rail + wall mount options

The R5020 is Robustel’s first 5G-capable router supporting global 5G, 4G and 3G bands.

The R5020 leverages the tried-and-tested high performance CPU platform and RobustOS – a mature and stable Operating System developed in-house by Robustel. R5020 is compatible with 3GPP Release 15 and is designed for use by the following applications:

In-vehicle applications: Whether it is passenger wifi, CCTV debrief, ticketing or a similar “onboard” requirement, the R5020 offers a simple and effective solution to increase internet speeds and future-proof current installations. The R5020 has achieved E-Mark certification for in-vehicle use, and supports GNSS positioning. A version with vehicle ignition sensing is available to protect vehicle batteries when the engine is off.

Broadband Failover: The R5020 can be configured to use Ethernet or Wifi as primary internet and failover to 4G/5G in the event of an outage.  This can help to provide resilience to outlets such as shops and small offices at a reasonable cost, and provide sufficient bandwidth for multiple users.  IPsec, DMVPN and Open VPN protocols can be used for connections into core networks.

Primary Broadband: Cellular networks can now provide unlimited 5G tariffs at very reasonable prices, offering hundreds of Mbps internet over the air. For many, a chance to cut the cables and use a wireless internet connection can be technically or commercially favourable.
