Deployment Scenarios

Intelligent Bus example

AR500 deployment1

The AR503 can be deployed in a bus to provide a mobile interconnection solution. As the mobile gateway, the AR500 supports LTE/3G, and provides free Wi-Fi access so that users can enjoy Internet surfing anytime.

The AR503 has a high-capacity storage medium that can pre-store multimedia resources and update multimedia resources online.

The AR503 design fully takes into consideration vehicle motion and vibration, and the AR503 is highly reliable with environmental features such as dustproof, waterproof, shockproof, and high-temperature resistant.

The intelligent bus system uniformly schedules and manages multiple vehicle-mounted gateways through the Operation center, and can periodically maintain or update applications such as video, games, and software applications.

Self-service terminals and advertising board

The AR509 connects Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs) and advertising billboards with VDSL2/GE uplinks and LTE/3G backup or dual LTE/3G (main/standby) uplinks. With an industrial-grade design, AR509 can work in harsh environments with extremely high and low temperature, high humidity, and strong electromagnetic interference. It can also enhance data security with rich VPN functions.

AR500 deployment2

  • Energy and electric power industries
    The AR509 connects Remote Terminal Units (RTUs), wind power plants, and solar panels, and transmits data provided by gas, oil, and water distribution networks.
    The AR509 connects IP cameras and supports VDSL2, GE or LTE backhaul to the surveillance center.
  • Outdoor video surveillance backhaul
