What’s the difference between Wi-Fi and LTE?
LTE and Wi-Fi serve different purposes. LTE modems are an evolution of the cellular connectivity that normally provides Internet access to your mobile phone. Wi-Fi works best for servicing wireless local area networks while LTE works well for long-distance communications and roaming. LTE is often used for temporary applications, or as backup in case of failure of the primary connection.
LTE as a temporary Internet connection makes sense because of one of LTE’s advantages; it’s super quick and easy to set up. In the business world, this speed and flexibility can be a short term lifesaver.
However, LTE is definitely ideal as permanent connectivity for a large variety of fixed, and mobile use cases. There could be various reasons for using an LTE router for permanent, primary Internet connectivity. Some of the most common examples would be retail stores or pop-up shops where there is a lack of wired connectivity.
NetCloud IoT Package
The IBR200 is sold with a cloud based plan called NetCloud. It is a secure, cloud based networking plan built for Internet of Things and machine-to-machine uses. It’s similar to the bundles that firewalls often come with. This cloud based service adds greatly to the features and abilities of your device.
For example, NetCloud offers secure, cloud-based management and control of your CradlePoint IBR200-10M Router – NetCloud. If you have any further questions about the IBR200, Wi-Fi, LTE, or anything else, please email us or call 877-449-0458.
