USB Modems vs. Embedded LTE Modems

Purpose-Built, Enterprise-Grade Modems Give Organizations Network Flexibility, Reliability & Security

The verdict is in: LTE is a critical component of any enterprise networking strategy. From retail stores, restaurants, offices, and other fixed locations to vehicles, such as police fleets and metro buses, that operate as mobile branches, the rising number of IoT devices and Internet-based applications renders wireless WAN essential, either as a primary or failover link—and with 5G on the horizon, this trend is sure to continue.

The quickly expanding role of cellular-based broadband in enterprise networking has required modems that offer more flexibility, reliability, performance, management capabilities, functionality, and cost-effectiveness than the consumer-oriented products of yesteryear.

This white paper compares the attributes, benefits, and challenges of consumer-grade USB modems versus enterprise-grade modems that are integrated and embedded into purpose-built routers.

What You’ll Get:

  • A history of cellular modems
  • A breakdown of the challenges & benefits of each modem
  • The functionality of the modem types in branches & vehicles
  • An introduction to all-in-one solutions
