When choosing a 4G / 5G router solution for primary internet connectivity and WiFi on board of a ship, you may want to ask the following questions:
In case of more extensive requirements for internet on board, you should first make an inventory of all your requirements. We explain the most common requirements and the necessary properties of the 4G / 5G router below.
Non-WiFi devices on the Internet? Choose a 4G / 5G router with LAN ports
Are there devices that do not have a built-in WiFi receiver, such as PCs or built-in appliances? Then these can be connected to the internet primarily through a router with 1 or more LAN ports. Via a LAN cable, the device such as a PC or workstation is then connected to the Internet via the 4G / 5G connection.
Want to save on data usage? Choose a 4G / 5G router with WiFi as WAN (WAW)
WiFi as WAN means that the router can also receive WiFi and not just transmit it. This can be useful to make use of existing – free – networks as soon as they are available, for example at the port or near the shore. This can save a considerable amount of data usage.
Are the requirements to the 4G / 5G mobile data connection business critical? Then choose a dual-SIM router. Is there also a high bandwidth requirement? Then check out a router with 4 SIM card slots or even 8 SIM card slots. This means that two, four or eight SIM cards fit in the router, which can offer the following advantages, among others
A router with GPS ensures that a ship can always be located via the GPS/Glonass satellite network. This is particularly interesting for inland waterways, shipping and companies that rent out boats. GPS is also useful for tracing assets in case of theft.
Set up and manage the router remotely? Choose a 4G / 5G router with a cloud management system
Nowadays, almost all routers come standard with a cloud management system from the manufacturer or supplier. With a cloud management system routers can be set up remotely and firmware updates can be performed. It also offers the possibility to manage or limit data usage.
