Sierra Wireless AirLink ES450 4G LTE Enterprise Gateway

The AirLink ES450 is a reliable, secure 4G LTE gateway designed to deliver primary and failover connectivity, ensuring critical network equipment like point-of-sale (POS), inventory scanners, and VoIP phones are always connected to the Internet. With state-of-the-art global LTE coverage, the ES450 and AirVantage Management Service offer a complete solution for deploying an enterprise LTE connectivity solution quickly and seamlessly.

The AirLink ES450 enterprise gateway delivers mission-critical LTE connectivity either as a primary broadband connection or as a secondary solution with automatic failover should the landline fail. It’s ideal for keeping retail, restaurants, pop-up stores, kiosks, and digital signage operating continuously.

In addition to broadband connectivity, the ES450 also provides a terminal server on the router’s console port for remote out-of-band management (OOBM). This feature enables IT administrators to remotely connect to network equipment for diagnostics, troubleshooting, and repair. Personnel no longer need to visit a location to reset equipment manually.

The ES450 is loaded with security features such as concurrent VPN sessions, remote authentication management, RADIUS and TACACS+, port filtering, trusted IP protection, and authorized access. The ES450 is compliant with PCI standards required by payment systems.
