Industrial Grade, LTE-Advanced Performance, Low
The AirLink RV50X is the industry’s lowest power and most rugged LTE gateway.
Simple to install and easy to manage, this industrial-grade gateway is designed
to connect critical assets and infrastructure. Ideal for energy, utilities and smartcity
applications, the RV50X provides real-time remote connectivity for SCADA,
distribution management systems and metering.
With the lowest power consumption available on the market, the RV50X dramatically
reduces infrastructure costs when running on battery or solar power. The RV50X
variant supports an extensive range of LTE bands worldwide, and its LTE-Advanced
capabilities deliver up to 300 Mbps downlink speeds. For deployments in areas
with limited LTE coverage, the RV50X provides fallback to 2G and 3G networks.
Furthermore, the RV50X provides programmability to enable edge computing
applications, using the ALEOS Application Framework (AAF).
RUGGED DESIGN FOR DEMANDING ENVIRONMENTS
The RV50X is designed to withstand harsh industrial conditions, and is capable of
surviving 5 V brownouts and spikes from -600 VDC to 200 VDC.
Certified as Class I Div 2, it is ideal for hazardous environments. The die cast
aluminum housing is sealed to meet IP64 for resistance to dust and water ingress.
The RV50X is tested to meet and exceed the MIL-STD-810G specification for shock,
vibration, temperature and humidity. The built-in power supply protection make it
suitable for harsh electrical environments such as compressors, generators, and
ULTRA-LOW POWER CONSUMPTION
The RV50X offers best-in-class power consumption combined with LTE performance,
and is optimized for battery and solar applications. It is the industry’s only LTE
gateway with 2G power consumption, operating at 900 mW in idle mode. For 2G
and 3G deployments migrating to LTE, the RV50X will work with existing power
infrastructure, eliminating the need to invest in replacement solar panels or
batteries. Standby Mode provides additional protection for batteries by dropping
power consumption to 53 mW, and can be triggered by timers, low voltage
detection or I/O.
The RV50X automatically configures the radio based on the SIM, which provides
versatility and simplicity when changing operator networks.
Ideal for global deployments, the RV50X provides worldwide LTE coverage with just
two product variants; one for North America and EMEA, and one for Asia-Pacific.
BEST-IN-CLASS REMOTE MANAGEMENT
Network Management solutions for the RV50X allow over-the-air registration,
configuration and software updates, and can be deployed either as a cloudbased
service, or as a licensed software platform in the enterprise data center.
Both options provide a centralized and remote view of an entire fleet and enable
simplified management, control and monitoring of connected RV50s and critical
AirLink Management Service (ALMS) is a secure, centralized cloud-based service
that remotely monitors and manages signal strength, network technology
and location. ALMS provides dashboards with up-to-date views of an entire
deployment, and custom alerts to monitor and report critical events, to increase
efficiency and prevent downtime.
AirLink Mobility Manager (AMM) is a licensed, unified software platform which can
be deployed in the enterprise data center, and provides a consolidated network
view of an entire fleet, using a virtual dashboard to monitor, report, manage, and
troubleshoot all mobile resources as required.
The RV50X is designed to install directly into existing infrastructure. Offering both
serial and Ethernet connectivity, it can be used to connect devices like PLCs and
RTUs, and transmit a wide variety of protocols like Modbus/DNP3 with ease. RV50X
can also be integrated directly into existing management systems via SNMP.
INTELLIGENCE AT THE EDGE
The RV50X provides an application framework which allows customers to apply
intelligence at the edge of the network. The RV50X offers a dual core processor
which enhances the performance of edge applications.
SECURE INDUSTRIAL COMMUNICATIONS
The RV50X supports secure communications to multiple back-end systems by
providing up to five concurrent VPN sessions. Remote authentication management
allows enterprise-grade systems to manage access to devices in the field. Port
filtering and trusted IP protect the devices connected to RV50s from unwanted
access. Secure signing and authentication of software images offers end-to-end
protection of the software upgrade process, protecting the RV50X against unwanted
