This router features an embedded modem and you will need a SIM card with active service from AT&T to use it. The AER has a standard 2FF SIM slot - if you plan to use a micro or nano SIM, you'll need a SIM adapter.

The CradlePoint AER 2100 is designed for the distributed enterprise to intelligently manage converged wired and wireless connectivity for a highly reliable “connected experience” at the edge. This all-in-one networking solution combines routing, multi-WAN support (wired + 4G wireless), advanced security, and best-in-class WiFi in a platform that can be deployed, managed, and optimized via the cloud. Network administrators can extend applications and services to remote branches with a solution that is customizable through the real-time deployment of cloud-enabled services, applications, and analytics.

Fast Facts About This Product:

  • This router is best for: The AER 2100 is ideal for business and enterprise applications where the need for "always on" connectivity is a must; perfect for businesses who want an all-in-one solution, since the modem chip is built into the router's included modem component - no need for a separate aircard, just insert your activated SIM card right into the modem!
  • Internet Connections Supported: 2 MC400 embedded 3G/4G modules (1 x AT&T modem included; additional MC400s sold separately), 5 Wired WAN, 2 USB (view full compatibility chart), WiFi as WAN* (more info)
