The MAR-2000 is a compact, simple, and programmable RISC-based wireless mobile router with strong wireless routing capabilities. With a built-in GPS module, HSPA+ cellular and 802.11a/b/g/n wireless capabilities, independent power switches on its cellular module connectors, and high thermal tolerance, the MAR-2000 is compliant with a portion of EN 50155 specifications. The built-in 32 MB NOR Flash ROM and 512 MB SDRAM give you enough memory for installing your own application software, the 512 MB NAND Flash can be used to provide additional data storage, and the CompactFlash socket is available for adding more memory when needed. The built-in GPS module supports geo-fencing functionality, making it ideal for managing wireless connections in cross-WAN environments often associated with rolling stock and other vehicular applications.
When a train travels to a different region, it often encounters switches that support different wireless interfaces, such as Wi-Fi, UMTS, and HSPA+. The MAR-2000 uses multiple-WAN support and backup functionality to ensure that your wireless connections are always available, stable, and reliable.
As an added bonus, the MAR-2000 series includes wide temperature models designed to operate reliably in extreme environments with temperatures ranging from -25 to 70°C.
