Kenton Enhances its MAR150 DSL/3G Access Router

Network access specialist, The Kenton Group, has enhanced its MAR 150 DSL/3G Access Router, making it smaller and more compact than ever before. The access router, which is ideal for those in transportation and utilities, is designed specifically to deliver high availability performance in harsh and extreme environments.

The new version of Kenton’s MAR 150 DSL/3G Access Router is an environmentally hardened solution and full service gateway for data and voice applications, delivering up to 27Mbps on copper infrastructure with the added benefit of having automatic failover to mobile data networks if the primary link fails. It provides secured internet access through a sophisticated inspection firewall and offers IP Quality of Service features including real-time processing of high priority, delay sensitive applications and guaranteed bandwidth for selected flows.

Lee Palmer, Commercial Director at The Kenton Group, says: “In continuing our efforts to provide the best access network solutions and deliver high-level connectivity, we have enhanced our existing MAR 150 to meet the requirements of our customers. Not only does our MAR-150 have the technical specification required by our customers, but its new form factor makes it easier to install and connect to the existing networks. The newly designed case is not only aesthetically appealing but has been specially designed to allow us to develop future products within the enclosure. By continuing to listen to our customers’ needs, we will develop products that can meet and exceed all of their requirements.”

The router is waterproof to IP67 standards and has the ability to cope with extreme temperatures, from as low as -40°C, right up to +75°C. It has the capability of using an external hi-gain antenna and antenna diversity in areas where installation is in a shielded environment or where mobile coverage is marginal, and is interruption tolerant.

Several auto discovery and update features make the network roll-out straightforward, allowing the installation of units with a standard configuration. Once connected to the network the router automatically retrieves all specific information from the service provider’s databases and is quickly ready for the service.
