Data Connect’s CDR-HSPA Series has been designed to meet the demanding requirements of wireless machine-to-machine communications for high volume OEM and VAR implementations. The CDR-HSPA Series allows customers to quickly and economically integrate wireless IP and GPS capabilities into real-time M2M networks with a degree of reliability that could never be obtained using wireless modems. Data Connect’s CDR-HSPA Series wireless routers provide OEM and VAR customers with a cost effective private label product that incorporates the “must have” features found on Data Connect’s popular CDR-HSPA line. Standard features include Ethernet and serial interfaces, as well as discrete I/O and an SMS capability. Users will experience the familiar web based interface first introduced on the  models and enjoy the same levels of network performance and reliability that Data Connect’s always available connection management logic has provided for many years.

Unlike the majority of the Ethernet capable wireless modems being deployed Data Connect’s CDR-HSPA Series is designed to manage an entire LAN segment, simultaneously routing traffic between a combination of serial and Ethernet devices and one or more head-end servers.
