The CyBox LTE 2-W is a member of the CyBox family – robust wireless communication routers for railway applications. It offers stable, secure, and broadband LTE connections for train-to ground communication and high-speed internet. The device hosts up to two LTE interfaces for parallel LTE channel use and thus maximized throughput or one Wi-Fi 5 interface combined with an LTE interface to boost network efficiency and connect to client devices such as mobile phones. Country-specific LTE/Wi-Fi standards are adopted for worldwide use in every type of train.
On the fixed network side, the router features two Gigabit Ethernet ports which are, as an option, internally connected to an unmanaged switch and can be used either for redundancy to increase the availability of services, or to connect a second CyBox LTE 2-W. The bypass relay option ensures a high-speed connection even if the router is powered down.
The CyBox LTE 2-W provides flexible powering options by either an internal power supply or Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+). The PoE daisy chaining offers wireless connectivity with two routers using just one cable – a noticeable cost saving factor especially in retrofit programs.
The CyBox LTE 2-W firmware provides a convenient management interface via a web service. Besides global setup parameters the open source software OpenWrt allows the configuration of the radio interfaces, including provider information and the login dialog, as well as the setup of the stateful firewall. The access point and router configurations as well as the management firmware can be updated remotely. Furthermore the built-in fully configurable stateful firewall and multi-VPN support with hardware-accelerated encryption ensures communication security.
