This router features an embedded modem and you will need active service from a compatible provider to use it. If you already have an active line of service from a GSM provider you plan to use, you can simply swap your SIM card over to the CloudGate when you receive it (the CloudGate has a standard-sized SIM slot - if you plan to use a microSIM, you'll need the micro-to-standard SIM adapter). If you need to sign up for new service, you'll need to contact your provider when you receive the equipment.

CloudGate, Option’s M2M Gateway, provides competitively priced LAN to WWAN routing and GPS functionality in a single basic unit certified on all major US 3G cellular operators (CDMA/EvDO and WCDMA/HSPA+) and can also be activated on virtually ANY 3G GSM network worldwide! CloudGate is simple to configure locally or remotely from your PC, tablet or smartphone.

A gamechanger in the M2M market

Unlike other M2M solutions, the CloudGate utilizes the unique universal Gobi 3000 chip, which can be activated on any 3G GSM network worldwide that uses the 850/900/1900/2100Mhz/AWS frequencies (this includes AT&T, T-Mobile, Rogers Canada, and countless others) as well as the Verizon 3G network in the US (Sprint support coming soon, pending Sprint certification and a firmware update from Option). This is a HUGE advantage compared to other M2M routers that utilize carrier-locked modules. While the flexibility to use multiple providers is one of CloudGate’s standout features, the CloudGate’s functionality and reliability easily rivals that of competing M2M gateways.

This modem works great. 3G performance is fast and reliable and we've experienced no dropped connections. The ability to accept a wide range of voltages is helpful when deploying in remote areas. I wish there was a global 4G version! My only complaint is getting at the SIM card. Removing the plate and T6 screws is a burden during testing and swapping SIMs often. But this is certainly a feature for those who wish to prevent tampering and SIM card theft.

Service was great and product shipped on time. One word of caution with this or any other cellular modem. If you need to locate the device from the outside world, a standard data plan from most carriers (we used AT&T) will not work. Standard data plans use routed addresses that are not visible on the Internet. The modem has dynamic DNS but this does not help. You will need to contact your account person at AT&T (you need a business account) to get them to provide a public address. You don't need a static address, just a public one. They will give you special APN settings to get this to work. The APN settings on their own are of no use, they have to add your account to the network they put you on or it still won't work. Unit is easy to setup and the dynamic DNS works if you have a public address. My account rep says there is no additional charge for this but so far they haven't done it yet so I am not completely sure. AT&T tech support was completely useless, you will need to contact your sales rep.

Questions & Answers

How do you access the GPS information out of the device. I bought one, works great as a router, but presumably a program should be able to access the GPS info somehow, through a DLL API or some other method? Thanks.
Can this be activated on Sprint?
