Category 18 Modem
The mobile router is equipped with one or more category 18 LTE Advanced Pro cellular modems with a maximum download speed of 1.2Gbps and a maximum upload speed of 150Mbps (typical speeds range from 10-150mbps depending on cellular network conditions and coverage). The category of the modem impacts the maximum upload and download speed of the device and what cellular bands or "channels" the device can connect to. Cellular bands act similarly to "channels" on television, each cellular provider broadcasts on specific bands. Category 18 modems support connecting to the primary bands of all major carriers such as Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint & AT&T and step up lower category modems to include additional LTE secondary bands for increased speed and coverage in many areas. This typically includes support for AT&T Band 14, and TMobile's Band 71. For a complete list of bands supported, click the documentation tab for detailed specifications.
Category 18 modems are popular with customers who prefer the high speed over the connection stability offered by a dual modem device capable of cellular bonding. Category 18 modems are very popular with customers that need the fastest possible speeds for large file downloads or uploads or who require access to secondary bands to improve performance on a particular cellular carrier. Category 18 modems can bring faster speeds but can come with trade-offs. Category 18 routers typically are single modem devices as a dual modem version would require 8 cellular antennas and be costly. Category 18 modems also may not function on certain data plans where Category 18 modems are not authorized by the cellular carrier for that plan.
Roof Antenna Support
This mobile router comes with indoor antennas that provide 3db of cellular gain. Upgrading to an optional roof antenna can provide significant signal improvement by moving the cellular antenna outside, at higher elevation and provide you the benefit of an antenna with higher gain specifications. Roof antennas can be added now with a bundle discount by checking out our Internet Bundle Section, or at a later date based on your needs.
WiFi as WAN
This device supports Wifi-As-Wan meaning you can pick up public WiFi signals from hotspots, campgrounds, and other sources to rebroadcast them into your coach and use them as your local internet. The wireless antennas included with this modem will pick up these signals and rebroadcast them locally within your own WiFi network.
*Using public WiFi may be unreliable due to external environmental forces typically outside of customer's control and as such public WiFi is recommended to be used as a secondary backup connection.

This device is FirstNet Ready! FirstNet is the nationwide public safety communications platform dedicated to America's first responders. Being built with AT&T, in public-private partnership with the FirstNet Authority, FirstNet utilizes Band-14, which is reserved for public safety but is also being marketed as available to the public for additional bandwidth capacity. In testing Band-14 has been made available during non-emergency situations to the public to provide additional bandwidth and coverages to customers who have a modem that supports FirstNet's Band-14. Not all modems that support Band-14 are "FirstNet Certified" however they typically can connect to Band-14 in most areas. Information on FirstNet certifications can be found on Specification sheets located on the Documentation Tab. Additional information about FirstNet's use and technology can be found in this article from our friends at the RV Mobile Internet Resource Center.
