Teltonika RUT955 LTE Cellular Router, CAT 4 Speed, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, GPS, 2 SIMs, Serial, I/O

Industrial networking presents challenges that don’t show up in other networking applications. Networks can span miles. Operating conditions can be physically hard on the equipment, and security demands are through the roof. Satisfying all of these needs is rarely cheap and easy, but the Teltonika RUT955 makes a strong case to be your go-to router.

This 4G/LTE and Wi-Fi cellular router takes reliability to a new level. The dual SIM design automatically switches between cards when a weak signal is detected, and it has a switching algorithm that helps reduce roaming costs. GNSS positioning provides GPS location capabilities and even supports geofencing. With multiple inputs and outputs designed specifically for remote monitoring, you can ensure that this router is performing to your expectations What is particularly promising about the RUT955 is security. It supports OpenVPN, IPsec, GRE, PPTP, L2TP, Stunnel, and SSTP for secure connections. Industry standards for Wi-Fi and LTE security are vigorously met. It comes with built-in DDOS prevention, VLAN separation, and flexible access control. While this router is managing your industrial network, you can trust that it provides every opportunity to protect your data.

On top of all of that, it’s also rugged. It operates flawlessly in extreme temperatures that range from far below freezing to far above the hottest natural temperatures on earth. It features surge protection and a DIN-rail mount so it’s safe from industrial hazards. This single device gives you powerful networking, industrial-grade security, and durable performance in a single, affordable package.

Need an IoT Data Plan?

Enable your RUT955 with a cost-effective monthly data plan to ensure your router is ready to deploy. Select Verizon or AT&T and the data plan size from 100 MB to 5 GB. You are billed monthly; there’s no long-term contract. Plus, manage all of your fielded gateways from a single cloud-based web portal.

Purchase a SIM card from this page. It will be mailed to you in 2 to 3 business days. Then after you receive your card, sign up for a data plan at Westward Connect.

High-Performance Antenna Options

The RUT955 includes two magnetic mount LTE antennas, two magnetic mount WiFi antennas, and one adhesive mount GNSS antenna. For mobile and industrial applications, consider these high-performance antennas listed on these pages: 

2-in-1 (MIMO LTE) combo antennas
3-in-1 (MIMO LTE and WiFi) combo antennas   
4-in-1 (MIMO LTE and MIMO WiFi) combo antennas 
5-in-1 (MIMO LTE, MIMO WiFi, and GPS) combo antennas

The RUT955 is a competitive cellular router, but it’s worthless without the rest of the network. All of your equipment must perform at this level and be economical, too. It’s possible to marry quality with affordability but finding the perfect device for every function can cost you a lot of time. With a single conversation, one of our experts can get to know your needs and help select the hardware you need to thrive.
