The RUTX50 is an industrial 5G router designed to provide reliable, secure and high speed mobile broadband Internet connectivity for M2M / IoT remote management and monitoring applications.
In order to get connected to the 5G network, you will need to insert a 5G SIM Card. Of course, the RUTX50 is not locked to any network, and you could just use a standard data SIM from any mobile phone network to get high speed Internet. However, if you just intend to use the Teltonika 5G router for Internet connectivity for your home or office, then a standard SIM card is all you will need.
If you intend to use the Industrial grade 5G router in an M2M / IoT application where you will need to get remote access to the router and connected devices then you will need to consider an M2M SIM Card / IoT SIM Card also known as a Fixed IP SIM Card.
These SIM cards have a different APN to a normal data SIM card so connect via the main cellular network to your M2M SIM provider who can provide extra services. These services can include the addition of a fixed, public IP address, or for added security a fixed, private IP address. This enables you to connect to your router directly and use port forwarding to connect to the devices on the LAN. This is the most common use of a Fixed IP SIM Card.
Other features of an IoT data SIM card include a SIM management portal so you can monitor and manage your SIM estate as well as get alerts on data usage and device disconnections. With an M2M Data SIM solution you can also get roaming SIM cards / Multi-Network SIM cards that can use any of the four main networks in the UK as well as European roaming IoT SIM cards and even worldwide roaming data SIM’s.
So, when considering the purchase of your Teltonika RUTX50 5G router, please carefully consider your choice of SIM card to ensure that you get a reliable, convenient service for your M2M / IoT installation.
A single multi-carrier M2M SIM from Millbeck provides reliable cellular coverage for your devices wherever they are deployed, in both urban and rural locations.
Our M-Connect Triple Network SIM Cards operate on EE, O2 and Vodafone Networks in the UK providing coverage across the UK and built in network diversity resilience for mission critical applications.
Each SIM has a dedicated, Fixed, Public IP address to enable direct access from the Internet to your 4G / 5G router allowing the use of port forwarding and using the Router firewall to manage remote access and security. The RUTX50, along with Teltonika’s range of 4G and 5G routers all provide high levels of security and extensive functionality for your remote connectivity solution to remain secure and connected.
The Fixed IP / Public IP service is provided by an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) who invest in the equipment, network and skilled staff to integrate their front end network offering with the mobile networks.
You have probably heard of other MVNO companies like Tesco Mobile and Virgin Mobile who offer a mobile phone service but did not invest billions of pounds in licenses and building a mobile network – so an MVNO that offers a Fixed IP SIM card service like ours has links into the mobile networks and can then add valuable services with their own infrastructure and that is how, as an MVNO, Fixed IP SIM card services are available using all the UK mobile networks.
A standard mobile network SIM card will use CGNAT (Carrier Grade NAT) and will only allocate your 3G or 4G connection with a PRIVATE IP Address on the mobile networks private network. This means you will not be able to connect to your 3G/4G router which of course means that things like Dynamic DNS will not work, neither will router functions like port forwarding.
It is because standard mobile data SIM cards work this way and do not provide a means to remotely access your router that specialist service providers have been established to provide Fixed IP SIM Cards.
