Step 6) Set Cell SIM2. Follow Step 6 of setting Cell SIM1.

Step 7) Activate the “Cell SIM Switching Trigger” feature

Setting location: H750 web: Internet Settings – WAN — All Cell Option

There are 6 types of Cell Option Mode (Cell Switching Mode),

Mode Description
cell1 only With this mode, only sim1 works
cell2 only With this mode, only sim2 works
fail switch cell1 first With this mode, it works as below,
sim1 on – switch to sim2 on if sim1 failed, and keep working on sim2 – switch to sim1 on if sim2 failed, and keep working on sim1 –switch to sim2 on if sim1 failed, and keep working on sim2 – “cycling”
fail switch cell2 first With this mode, it works as below,
sim2 on – switch to sim1 on if sim2 failed, and keep working on sim1 – switch to sim2 on if sim1 failed, and keep working on sim2 –switch to sim1 on if sim2 failed, and keep working on sim1 – “cycling”
cell1 prefer With this mode, it works as below,
sim1 on – keep working on sim1 – if sim1 failed, switch to sim2 – keep working on sim2 for “Check Time (for Prefer mode)”, then try to check if sim1 is restored, if restored, switch to sim1 – “cycling”
cell2 prefer With this mode, it works as below,
sim2 on – keep working on sim2 – if sim1 failed, switch to sim1 – keep working on sim1 for “Check Time (for Prefer mode)”, then try to check if sim2 is restored, if restored, switch to sim2 – “cycling”
advance data traffic cell1 first With this mode, it works as below,
sim1 and sim2 have data limits. Sim1 on — once sim1 data count reaches the limitation, switch to sim2 — once sim2 data count reaches the limitation, sim1 and sim2 neither works until next day/week/month.With this mode, users need set the “Advance Cell Traffic” configuration
advance data traffic cell2 first With this mode, it works as below,
sim1 and sim2 have data limits. Sim2 on — once sim2 data count reaches the limitation, switch to sim1 — once sim1 data count reaches the limitation, sim1 and sim2 neither works until next day/week/month.With this mode, users need set the “Advance Cell Traffic” configuration. Refer to the detailed manuals from E-Lins.
cell on time traffic Sim1 and sim2 work according the time period schedule settings.

With this mode, users need set the “Advance Cell Traffic” configuration. Refer to the detailed manuals from E-Lins.

Notes: Sometimes it may happen the following,
1) Choosing ” fail switch cell1 first” or “cell1 prefer”, SIM2 is firstly online, this is not problem because sometimes the SIM1 has some problem to be online.

2) Choosing ” fail switch cell2 first” or “cell2 prefer”, SIM1 is firstly online, this is not problem because sometimes the SIM2 has some problem to be online.

Check Time (for Prefer mode): set the time for “cell1 prefer mode” or “cell2 prefer mode”

Description for Check Time (for Prefer mode):
For example1, Cell Option Mode is “cell1 prefer”, and Check Time (for Prefer mode) is “5” minutes. It works as below,
Router works with sim1 firstly — if sim1 failed, switch to sim2 — keep working on sim2 with 5 minutes — after 5 minutes, check if sim1 is ok, if ok, switch back to sim1.

For example2, Cell Option Mode is “cell2 prefer”, and Check Time (for Prefer mode) is “5” minutes. It works as below,
Router works with sim2 firstly — if sim2 failed, switch to sim1 — keep working on sim1 with 5 minutes — after 5 minutes, check if sim2 is ok, if ok, switch back to sim1.

Step 8) Click “View” button to double check if the settings are correct.

Step 9) Click “Apply” button or Re-power the router to reboot. Then H750 router will reboot and dialup online.

Once it’s online, the CELL LED will light on.
Notes: sometimes the router cannot dialup after the APN configuration, please power off the router, and re-power on it. Because some radio modules need reboot after the initial APN configuration.

Step 10) Once H750 router is online, it gets a WAN IP Address and Status Page will show similar info.

Step 11) Activate the “Cell ICMP Check” feature

Setting location: H750 web: Internet Settings – Cell ICMP Check

Notes:

1) For router working with best stability, we highly suggest activate and use this feature.

With this feature, the Router will automatically detect its working status and fix the problem.

2) Please disable the “Ping from WAN Filter” if use ICMP check feature, otherwise it cannot work.

 

  • Active: tick it to enable ICMP check feature
  • Check method: fill in checking domain name or IP. Click HOST/IP check button to verify before using it.
  • Check interval time (sec): set the interval time of every check
  • Check Count: set the checking count number
  • Reboot Count Before Sleep: H750 Router will sleep to stop checking after failed with set times.
  • Sleep Time (min): H750 Router sleep timing before resume check.

 

Example with above picture:

H750 Router check “www.google.com” and “112.134.8.8”, it will check 3 times. After the previous check, it will do next check after 60 seconds. Totally it will check 3 times. If 3 times all failed, H750 Router will reboot. If reboots 3 times continuously, H750 Router goes to sleep to stop checking. The sleep time is 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, H750 Router resumes to cycle the checking.

 

IoT Applications

文章目录 : 其他, 技术相关

According to Gartner, Inc. (a technology research and advisory corporation), there will be nearly 20.8 billion devices on the Internet of things by 2020. ABI Research estimates that more than 30 billion devices will be wirelessly connected to the Internet of things by 2020. As per a 2014 survey and study done by Pew Research Internet Project, a large majority of the technology experts and engaged Internet users who responded—83 percent—agreed with the notion that the Internet/Cloud of Things, embedded and wearable computing (and the corresponding dynamic systems) will have widespread and beneficial effects by 2025. As such, it is clear that the IoT will consist of a very large number of devices being connected to the Internet. In an active move to accommodate new and emerging technological innovation, the UK Government, in their 2015 budget, allocated £40,000,000 towards research into the Internet of things. The former British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, posited that the Internet of things is the next stage of the information revolution and referenced the inter-connectivity of everything from urban transport to medical devices to household appliances.

Integration with the Internet implies that devices will use an IP address as a unique identifier. However, due to thelimited address space of IPv4 (which allows for 4.3 billion unique addresses), objects in the IoT will have to use IPv6to accommodate the extremely large address space required. Objects in the IoT will not only be devices with sensory capabilities, but also provide actuation capabilities (e.g., bulbs or locks controlled over the Internet). To a large extent, the future of the Internet of things will not be possible without the support of IPv6; and consequently the global adoption of IPv6 in the coming years will be critical for the successful development of the IoT in the future.

The ability to network embedded devices with limited CPU, memory and power resources means that IoT finds applications in nearly every field. Such systems could be in charge of collecting information in settings ranging from natural ecosystems to buildings and factories, thereby finding applications in fields of environmental sensing and urban planning.

On the other hand, IoT systems could also be responsible for performing actions, not just sensing things. Intelligent shopping systems, for example, could monitor specific users’ purchasing habits in a store by tracking their specific mobile phones. These users could then be provided with special offers on their favorite products, or even location of items that they need, which their fridge has automatically conveyed to the phone. Additional examples of sensing and actuating are reflected in applications that deal with heat, electricity and energy management, as well as cruise-assisting transportation systems. Other applications that the Internet of things can provide is enabling extended home security features and home automation. The concept of an “Internet of living things” has been proposed to describe networks of biological sensorsthat could use cloud-based analyses to allow users to study DNA or other molecules.

However, the application of the IoT is not only restricted to these areas. Other specialized use cases of the IoT may also exist. An overview of some of the most prominent application areas is provided here. Based on the application domain, IoT products can be classified broadly into five different categories: smart wearable, smart home, smart city, smart environment, and smart enterprise. The IoT products and solutions in each of these markets have different characteristics.

 

Differences between industrial class and SOHO class for Router / Modem

文章目录 : 其他, 技术相关

As we know, the devices mainly cover three classes, that is SOHO class, Industrial class and Military class.  Each class has its own application requirement. The SOHO class modem and router don’t meet the requirements of the industrial environment and standard entirely because of it is designed for office automation. Mainly differences are the below,

1. Control
The SOHO class is simple design for internet use. People no need control it very often.
The industrial class is designed mainly for industry applications. People need control it quite often, even 7*24 hours.

2. Stable, reliable and robust
SOHO class features are simply. It is mainly used for internet surfing, which is installed in house. People can check and assist it in time. With cost requirement, SOHO class design and development will not care too much for the stability and reliability. The industrial class cares the stability and reliability very much because it’s mainly installed under people’ touch. In another world, it should be working for 7*24 hours without people assist. So the industrial class must have good reliability, recoverability, and maintainability in the production environment at the same time. It is a guarantee that it will not lead the collapse of applications, operating system even the network when any component failure occurs in a network system.

3. The security issues
Lots of fields exist inflammable, explosive or toxic gases inevitably in the process of industrial production, and there must have some certain explosion-proof technology for the intelligent devices and communication equipment which can ensure the safety of industrial field. It is much more practical to add explosion-proof and explosion-proof measures in the Ethernet system under the condition of current technology, namely the ignition energy which caused by the devices problem will not leak through increasing explosion-proof measures to the Ethernet field devices, which can ensure the safety of running system. For those dangerous situation where is no strict safety requirements, you can not consider complex explosion-proof measures.

The network safety of industrial system is another security issue must be considered at the industrial Ethernet applications. Industrial Ethernet can make the traditional three layers of the network system, namely, information management layer, process monitoring layer and field equipment layer, an organic whole, which make the faster data transfer, higher real-time and it can integrate with the Internet seamlessly, it realizes data sharing and improves the operational efficiency of the factory. But there is a series of network security problems at the same time, industrial network may under the threat of virus infection, hackers and illegal operation.

4. The vehicle power supply issues
The vehicle power supply refers to the cable connected to the field devices not only to transmit data signals, but also provide equipment working power supply on-site. The Ethernet hasn’t considered this issue from the design at the beginning, while there are a lot of bus power supply requirements on the industrial site. Because of the above problems, the ordinary commercial Ethernet cannot be applied to the control of industrial field directly. And the industrial Ethernet is produced to solve these problems.

 

5. Features and performance
The industrial class owns much more features and SOHO class, such as connection alive monitor and keeping, Dual Sim connection, multi-line redundancy, GPS, Serial ports, VPN networks, high gain and special antenna replacement, etc.

E-Lins 4G Wireless Router: Solutions for Transport

Traffic Data Acquisition Application
Traffic Data Acquisition is among one important tasks in ITS. All the on-line or historical data are vital for the design and planning for the traffic management strategy. The traffic data acquisition device normal consists of two parts: the sensor and the controller. The controller links with the central through wire-line connection and send back the data collected from the sensor. However, installation of the wire-line relates to huge engineering efforts and the maintenance of fixed lines has always been difficult. There will be more problems to get wire-line connection in remote areas. When

the communication line goes down, data is lost unless a data Logger is further installed.

In this application, wireless module links with the Traffic Data Acquisition device using RS485 interface. The raw data from the detector is further analyzed by the data protocol analysis mechanism provided by the wireless module and sorted data is transmitted to the central Traffic Control Centre through GPRS network and Internet in TCP/IP packet. Data can be temporarily stored in the memory buffer when GPRS is disconnected. From the system integrator”s point of view, all the integration on the terminal wireless

connection is achieved by the plug & play of wireless module and no change is necessary on the original detecting device. And only simple application is required at the central to access the terminal data. The total system implementation is accomplished within 3 weeks.

High Gain Antenna–Yagi-Uda Antenna

文章目录 : 产品文章, 伊林思产品FAQ, 其他

Today, we are talking about high gain antennas. Here I want to introduce a strong one. A Yagi–Uda antenna, commonly known as a Yagi antenna, is a directional antenna consisting of multiple parallel elements in a line, usually half-wave dipoles made of metal rods.

Yagi–Uda antennas consist of a single driven element connected to the transmitter or receiver with a transmission line, and additional “parasitic elements” which are not connected to the transmitter or receiver: a so-called reflector and one or more directors.

The Yagi–Uda antenna consists of a number of parallel thin rod elements in a line, usually half-wave long, typically supported on a perpendicular crossbar or “boom” along their centers. There is a single driven element driven in the center (consisting of two rods each connected to one side of the transmission line), and a variable number of parasitic elements, a single reflector on one side and optionally one or more directors on the other side. The parasitic elements are not electrically connected to the transmitter or receiver, and serve as passive radiators, reradiating the radio waves to modify the radiation pattern. Typical spacings between elements vary from about  110 to ¼ of a wavelength, depending on the specific design. The directors are slightly shorter than the driven element, while the reflector(s) are slightly longer. The radiation pattern is unidirectional, with the main lobe along the axis perpendicular to the elements in the plane of the elements, off the end with the directors.

It’s also a good choice for you when you use E-Lins routers in rural area. This antenna will gain better reception than standard antennas for routers.

The Development of 5G Network

文章目录 : 产品文章, 伊林思产品FAQ, 其他

5G is the trend of the whole world, today I would like to share you the development of 5G network.
In 2008, the South Korean IT R&D program of “5G mobile communication systems based on beam-division multiple access and relays with group cooperation” was formed.
In 2012, the UK Government announced the establishment of a 5G Innovation Centre at the University of Surrey – the world’s first research centre set up specifically for 5G mobile research.
In 2012, NYU WIRELESS was established as a multidisciplinary research centre, with a focus on 5G wireless research, as well as its use in the medical and computer-science fields. The centre is funded by the National Science Foundation and a board of 10 major wireless companies (as of July 2014) that serve on the Industrial Affiliates board of the centre. NYU WIRELESS has conducted and published channel measurements that show that millimeter wave frequencies will be viable for multi-gigabit-per-second data rates for future 5G networks.
In 2012, the European Commission, under the lead of Neelie Kroes, committed 50 million euros for research to deliver 5G mobile technology by 2020. In particular, The METIS 2020 Project was the flagship project that allowed reaching a worldwide consensus on the requirements and key technology components of the 5G. Driven by several telecommunication companies, the METIS overall technical goal was to provide a system concept that supports 1,000 times higher mobile system spectral efficiency, compared to current LTE deployments. In addition, in 2013, another project has started, called 5GrEEn, linked to project METIS and focusing on the design of green 5G mobile networks. Here the goal is to develop guidelines for the definition of a new-generation network with particular emphasis on energy efficiency, sustainability and affordability.
In November 2012, a research project funded by the European Union under the ICT Programme FP7 was launched under the coordination of IMDEA Networks Institute (Madrid, Spain): i-JOIN (Interworking and JOINt Design of an Open Access and Backhaul Network Architecture for Small Cells based on Cloud Networks). iJOIN introduces the novel concept of the radio access network (RAN) as a service (RANaaS), where RAN functionality is flexibly centralized through an open IT platform based on a cloud infrastructure. iJOIN aims for a joint design and optimization of access and backhaul, operation and management algorithms, and architectural elements, integrating small cells, heterogeneous backhaul and centralized processing. Additionally to the development of technology candidates across PHY, MAC, and the network layer, iJOIN will study the requirements, constraints and implications for existing mobile networks, specifically 3GPP LTE-A.
In January 2013, a new EU project named CROWD (Connectivity management for eneRgy Optimised Wireless Dense networks) was launched under the technical supervision of IMDEA Networks Institute, to design sustainable networking and software solutions for the deployment of very dense, heterogeneous wireless networks. The project targets sustainability targeted in terms of cost effectiveness and energy efficiency. Very high density means 1000x higher than current density (users per square meter). Heterogeneity involves multiple dimensions, from coverage radius to technologies (4G/LTE vs. Wi-Fi), to deployments (planned vs. unplanned distribution of radio base stations and hot spots).
In September 2013, the Cyber-Physical System (CPS) Lab at Rutgers University, NJ, started to work on dynamic provisioning and allocation under the emerging cloud radio-access network (C-RAN). They have shown that the dynamic demand-aware provisioning in the cloud will decrease the energy consumption while increasing the resource utilization. They also have implemented a test bed for feasibility of C-RAN and developed new cloud-based techniques for interference cancellation. Their project is funded by the National Science Foundation.
In November 2013, Chinese telecom equipment vendor Huawei said it will invest $600 million in research for 5G technologies in the next five years. The company’s 5G research initiative does not include investment to productize 5G technologies for global telecom operators. Huawei will be testing 5G technology in Malta.
In 2015, Huawei and Ericsson are testing 5G-related technologies in rural areas in northern Netherlands.
In July 2015, the METIS-II and 5GNORMA European projects were launched. The METIS-II project builds on the successful METIS project and will develop the overall 5G radio access network design and to provide the technical enablers needed for an efficient integration and use of the various 5G technologies and components currently developed. METIS-II will also provide the 5G collaboration framework within 5G-PPP for a common evaluation of 5G radio access network concepts and prepare concerted action towards regulatory and standardization bodies. On the other hand, the key objective of 5G NORMA is to develop a conceptually novel, adaptive and future-proof 5G mobile network architecture. The architecture is enabling unprecedented levels of network customizability, ensuring stringent performance, security, cost and energy requirements to be met; as well as providing an API-driven architectural openness, fuelling economic growth through over-the-top innovation. With 5G NORMA, leading players in the mobile ecosystem aim to underpin Europe’s leadership position in 5G.
Additionally, in July 2015, the European research project mmMAGIC was launched. The mmMAGIC project will develop new concepts for mobile radio access technology (RAT) for mmwave band deployment. This is a key component in the 5G multi-RAT ecosystem and will be used as a foundation for global standardization. The project will enable ultra fast mobile broadband services for mobile users, supporting UHD/3D streaming, immersive applications and ultra-responsive cloud services. A new radio interface, including novel network management functions and architecture components will be designed taking as guidance 5G PPP’s KPI and exploiting the use of novel adaptive and cooperative beam-forming and tracking techniques to address the specific challenges of mm-wave mobile propagation. The ambition of the project is to pave the way for a European head start in 5G standards and to strengthen European competitiveness. The consortium brings together major infrastructure vendors, major European operators, leading research institutes and universities, measurement equipment vendors and one SME. mmMAGIC is led and coordinated by Samsung. Ericsson acts as technical manager while Intel, Fraunhofer HHI, Nokia, Huawei and Samsung will each lead one of the five technical work packages of the project.
In July 2015, IMDEA Networks launched the Xhaul project, as part of the European H2020 5G Public-Private Partnership (5G PPP). Xhaul will develop an adaptive, sharable, cost-efficient 5G transport network solution integrating the fronthaul and backhaul segments of the network. This transport network will flexibly interconnect distributed 5G radio access and core network functions, hosted on in-network cloud nodes. Xhaul will greatly simplify network operations despite growing technological diversity. It will hence enable system-wide optimisation of Quality of Service (QoS) and energy usage as well as network-aware application development. The Xhaul consortium comprises 21 partners including leading telecom industry vendors, operators, IT companies, small and medium-sized enterprises and academic institutions.
In July 2015, the European 5G research project Flex5Gware was launched. The objective of Flex5Gware is to deliver highly reconfigurable hardware (HW) platforms together with HW-agnostic software (SW) platforms targeting both network elements and devices and taking into account increased capacity, reduced energy footprint, as well as scalability and modularity, to enable a smooth transition from 4G mobile wireless systems to 5G. This will enable that 5G HW/SW platforms can meet the requirements imposed by the anticipated exponential growth in mobile data traffic (1000 fold increase) together with the large diversity of applications (from low bit-rate/power for M2M to interactive and high resolution applications).
In July 2015, the SUPERFLUIDITY project, part of the European H2020 Public-Private Partnership (5G PPP) and led by CNIT, an Italian inter-university consortium, was started. The SUPERFLUIDITY consortium comprises telcos and IT players for a total of 18 partners. In physics, superfluidity is a state in which matter behaves like a fluid with zero viscosity. The SUPERFLUIDITY project aims at achieving superfluidity in the Internet: the ability to instantiate services on-the-fly, run them anywhere in the network (core, aggregation, edge) and shift them transparently to different locations. The project tackles crucial shortcomings in today’s networks: long provisioning times, with wasteful over-provisioning used to meet variable demand; reliance on rigid and cost-ineffective hardware devices; daunting complexity emerging from three forms of heterogeneity: heterogeneous traffic and sources; heterogeneous services and needs; and heterogeneous access technologies, with multi-vendor network components. SUPERFLUIDITY will provide a converged cloud-based 5G concept that will enable innovative use cases in the mobile edge, empower new business models, and reduce investment and operational costs.
In September 2016, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced that the government-led 5G Phase-1 test of key wireless technologies for future 5G networks were completed with satisfactory results. The tests were carried out in 100 cities and involved seven companies – Datang Telecom, Ericsson, Huawei, Intel, Nokia Shanghai Bell, Samsung and ZTE. The next step in 5G technology development involving trials is under way, with planned commercial deployment in 2022 or 2023. In April 2017 Huawei announced that it jointly with Telenor conducted successful 5G tests with speeds up to 70 Gbit/s in a controlled lab environment in Norway. The E-band multi-user MIMO can provide a 20 Gbit/s speed rate for a single user. Working as a supplementary low-frequency band, the E-band improves the user experience of enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB).

工业4g路由器上装载各种应用软件相关的问题

文章目录 : 产品文章

与软件有关的问题

* 软件的重要性

过去,工业路由器被看作是最佳转发数据包的硬件设备,软件仅提供监视器的功能。但随着工业级路由器的发展,软件在工业无线路由器中起的作用越来越大。实际上,实时操作系统(如,通信领域常用PSOS和VxWorks)的选择对一个通信产品来说是至关重要的。如果要开发效率很高的软件,需要操作系统厂商的支持。就是自己开发专用的工业级无线路由器操作系统以及应用软件。如果这种趋势继续发展,终端用户将来可以很方便地在工业4g路由器上装载各种应用软件模块,使工业级4g路由器能够提供防火墙、流量管理策略、特殊应用信令、路由策略等功能。

* 网管系统

目前的网管协议是简单网管协议版本2.0(SNMPv2,Simple Network management Protocol v2.0),在TCP/IP协议中用UDP协议实现。由于工业LTE路由器在体系结构上的变化,使得一些网管信息需要由底层的硬件来提供,这一点和以前的实现方法是不同的。这里的工作主要是通过网管功能和管理信息数据库(MIB-Management Information Base)的实现来给网络管理者提供充足的管理信息和强大、灵活的管理功能。全网4g通路由器

* 计费

对用户的全网通工业级路由器数据流量进行计费需要提取IP包的地址、端口、CoS等信息,由于端口速率很高,这部分信息的数据量也是比较大的,如果在接口板上进行处理很不现实。而且,不同的ISP收费的标准很可能是不一样的。因此,应该将计费功能分离出去,工业级LTE路由器接口板只负责提供一个计费信息的接口,把计费信息送出来。之后,可以将这些数据写到外部存储设备,由专门的机器进行计费处理。这样将减轻工业全网路由器的负担,计费功能的实现也更加灵活。

* 配置

工业级全网路由器的配置是一项非常重要而又较困难的工作,一旦出现错误配置,不但难以发现,而且会出现一些难于琢磨的性能问题。随着工业全网通路由器技术的发展,其配置会越来越简单和有效,这个问题的完善解决将是一个长期的工作。

* 软件的稳定性

大家知道,工业级全网通路由器的硬件可以用热备份、双电源供电、数据通路备份等方法来提高稳定性,但对于全网通工业路由器软件的稳定性则是一个较难解决的问题。一个大网络系统的稳定性的前提条件是软件的稳定性。软件稳定性的难点在于软件的状态均受不同软件相互作用的影响。4g无线路由器
