The H685 4G Router is an ideal product for industrial applications owing to its form factor, feature set and tough construction. This router is designed to support 3G & 4G M2M applications including Security, Utilities, Monitoring and any other area that requires IP connectivity between a remote device and a central office. This industrial router can be used with Fixed IP SIM cards or normal data SIMs. It also supports Dynamic DNS where it is possible to use this across the operator’s network.

Mobile data communications using embedded Routers is fast becoming an essential tool for providers field-based communications solutions. The H685 4G Router is designed to stay online and connected, it has various stay-alive features giving you peace of mind with remote site communications, particularly CCTV and Telemetry.

The device provides a high capacity 4G connection whilst maintaining a reliable, secure, and discrete communications service. The device provides an excellent technical capability whilst still offering a commercial proposition so far not seen in the market compared to other products in this field.

Flexible WAN connection

The 4G router stands out with its 3G/4G and WAN connection back-up, which keeps users online when one connection fails. This industrial 4G router provides users with 3G/4G Preferred and Wired WAN Preferred back-up modes, while many other brands provide one or the other. This brings users a high degree of flexibility when users are setting up their networks taking into consideration connection costs and length of downtime. Users get 2 Ethernet ports from the device with the LAN port.


Complying with the IEEE 802.11n standard, the Router can establish a Wi-Fi wireless network with transmission speeds of up to 150Mbps, while mitigating data loss over long distances and through obstacles in a small area locally. Above all, users can easily pick up their wireless network’s signal at longer distances from the router, where with legacy 11g products they would have to be much closer.

Using antennas with the H685

In most cases you can use the stick antennas supplied with the router if the router is located in a position with a good signal.  When you install the H685 router inside a metal cabinet you could opt to use the supplied magnetic mount antennas.  The magnetic type antennas need to be positioned on top of the cabinet on a flat metal surface.  The mag-mount antennas are ground plane dependant for optimum performance.  This means they will not be as effective if just dangled out of a window for example.

If you are installing the router indoors where there is a poor 4G signal but there is a much better signal outdoors then we would recommend using an outdoor 4G Antenna.  Preferably a 2×2 MiMo 4G Antenna.  This is an antenna with a single housing, containing 2 x high gain 4G antennas, with 2 x cables that will connect to the MAIN and AUX antenna ports of the H685 Router.
