We get many questions recently about when Teltonika with launch their new 5G Router.
The quick answer is that there is no information from Teltonika about a 5G router but we can speculate whether they will just add a 5G modem inside existing M2M routers and perhaps make a RUT950 5G Router or RUT955 5G Router version. It might be the case when considering the launch of a new Teltonika 5G Router that they decide to use their office based routers like the RUTX11, RUTX12 and use these as the base for the new 5G devices or whether they will manufacture a brand new hardware platform for their new 5G router.
As well as the RUT230 3G Router, Teltonika will also manufacture the RUT240 4G Router – it will have all the same features as the RUT230 but with a 4G Modem inside to provider higher download and uupload speeds using 4G mobile broadband Internet connectivity.
The only difference between the RUT230 and RUT240 apart from the embedded 4G modem is the number of antennas. The RUt240 4G Router has 2 x Cellular Antenna ports for optimum performance for 4G networks. Just like the 3G version, these 4G antennas are removable and can be replaced with alternative 4G antennas.
Teltonika announced the launch of the RUT230 3G Router which will replace the RUT500 and RUT900 3G Routers. It will be available to order in June or July 2017 with an estimated price of £99.00.
It is a low cost 3G router with 2 x Ethernet ports. So if you need a low cost alternative to the RUT950 4G router that will provide basic 3G connectivity with a single SIM card Slot, WiFi and 2 x Ethernet ports then the Teltonika RUT230 3G Router will be a possible solution for your project.

Teltonika will also make a 4G version of the RUT230 3G router, it will be called the RUT240 4G Router.
Teltonika have announced that they will soon be manufacturing the RUT900 which is the 3G version of the Teltonika RUT950 4G Dual SIM M2M Router.
The Teltonika RUT900 3G Router will use the same casing as the RUT950 and will include the DIN Rail mounting kit and the firmware and features will be the same – the only difference is that the RUT900 will use a 3G Module inside whereas the RUT950 uses a 4G Module.
Teltonika also announced that this will mean that the RUT500 3G router will be discontinued in favour of the new RUT900 3G Router which offers an advanced feature set and also includes the dual SIM failover making ideal for M2M projects for remote management and monitoring with the advantage of a lower price and of course with many M2M projects will only using 3G M2M Data SIM cards because of the lower rental and data costs the RUT900 3G router will provide a stable and low cost solution for mobile broadband Internet connectivity. This new RUT900 router will be similar to the Elins H900 4G Router.
If you need a reliable 4G connection then look no further than the new Teltonika RUT950 4G Router.
The RUT950 is an embedded 4G router so you can just insert your 3G or 4G Data SIM card and the high speed 3G/4G connection can be shared via the Ethernet Ports and built-in WiFi. What’s even better is that the Teltonika RUT950 router includes a second SIM card slot so if the router is to be used for an M2M remote management and monitoring application it means that if the primary network becomes unavailable for whatever reason the router can switch to the back-up SIM card and still provide that all important 3G/4G mobile broadband connection.
The RUT950 SIM failover can be configured for different scenarios iinlcuding simple failover upon network unavailable through to switching depending upon time of day and even includes a bandwidth monitoring option so can switch from SIM A to SIM B when a particular data limit has been reached.
As well as the obvious SIM fail over, the Teltonika includes ping reboot so when the mobile network disconnects the router then the router will be able to detect this and reboot to re-establish the connection and as an extra back-up the RUT950 also includes SMS reboot so you can send it a text message to tell it to reboot and can also request status via SMS message.
