[AusNOG] 4G router alternatives to Cradlepoint

Having worked with the Teltonika’s in grid connect applications, have they a firmware that’s was patched for the last 4 major linux remote compromise CVE’s as yet?

Also I had to literally Browser->WebDev Tools edit the DOM to configure them to do routing down GRE tunnels last time I looked…

But yeah if we can find something better than a C1111-LPTELA for 4G remote access with support, hardware and software, I am also looking.

Not sure if you'd consider something in the Teltonika product range?

I feel like someone is forever asking this question.

I'm looking for a solid alternative to Cradlepoint for a large rollout (about 400 sites) with 4G primary connection. The sites have unreliable power, which means things like SRXs are not a go. (I do like the 320s with LTE mPIM "mostly").

Aside from Cradlepoint's IBR commercial model becoming a bit more challenging with subscriptions,  we are keen for something that is solid, basic, and reliable, and can ideally run on DC power. It's even better if we can connect an external antenna.

Only real requirement is two ethernet ports and the ability to do IPSEC tunnelling. BGP/VRF support would be nice (yes, over the IPSEC circuit) - but honestly, it's a requirement that can be engineered around.

Customer would settle for something solid around the $800-$1k mark, so any reasonable options around this price point would be *greatly* appreciated.
