SmartStart™ Benefits



Powerful enough to handle the full range of LTE communications capabilities, including video streams.  The internal memory provides ample storage for custom scripts, software applications and a wide variety of protocols.


Built-in Digital I/O Connectivity

In addition to its Ethernet and RS-232 ports, SmartStart has built-in digital I/O connectivity. Competing routers in the same price range generally provide only Ethernet or RS-232. StartSmart provides all three.


Assists with LTE Technology Migration

SmartStart is an excellent fit for applications that are migrating to LTE technology. SmartStart provides fallback to 3G/2G technologies to ensure that connectivity is reliable in areas where LTE is still under development


Best-in-class Power Consumption

SmartStart provides best-in-class power consumption combined with LTE performance, and is optimized for solar and battery powered applications. Low Power Mode extends battery life by dropping power consumption to 40 mW.
