Enjoy the benefits of fast wireless WAN on Integrated Services Routers. (2:40 min)
Use Cisco 4G LTE solutions to create primary or backup WAN links in a snap. Connect a branch office, temporary site, vehicle, or Internet of Things (IoT) device with broadband cellular service as needed. You'll not only set up your connections quickly, but you'll also get the benefit of all the intelligent routing capabilities of Cisco IOS Software in your mobile WAN. That's a first, and only Cisco can make that claim.
Cisco IOS-enabled 4G LTE connections are available with Cisco Integrated Services Routers (ISRs). They come embedded in Cisco 800 Series standalone routers or as add-ons to modular 1900, 2900, and 3900 ISRs. You get speeds a hundred times faster than a T1/E1 link can deliver and 20 times faster than 3G cellular services, plus IP end to end.
Rapidly connect any branch, remote, and mobile site with the power of Cisco IOS Software. All while lowering setup costs and monthly service fees.
There are many benefits to using 4G LTE as a fixed WAN access connection. For example, you can:

Fourth-generation Long Term Evolution is the fastest commercial mobile WAN service available, and you can get it all over the world. Use 4G LTE to quickly add an inexpensive broadband backup link and create diverse WAN routes for greater business continuity. Or bring up new offices, mobile sites, and temporary locations within hours.
To take advantage of 4G LTE technology, you need a modern router with a 4G LTE WAN interface connection. You also need a 4G LTE data services plan and an associated subscriber interface module (SIM) card from your wireless network operator.
Cisco 4G LTE solutions include standalone wireless routers, modular routers plus 4G LTE interface modules, and antennas. We combine the speed, reliability, and rapid deployment benefits of 4G LTE wireless networks with the intelligent routing capabilities of Cisco ISRs. That means that the rich Cisco IOS Software service set, long available over landlines, now reaches across the wireless WAN. You get the enhanced quality of service (QoS), security, and other Layer 3 networking services you enjoy with your Cisco landline routers in the mobile WAN. That's unique to the Cisco solution.
Capitalize on Cisco 4G LTE solutions in a variety of machine-to-machine (M2M) and other environments. These uses are growing by the day across a variety of industries. Here are just a few examples:
There are many 4G LTE product options and configurations. How do you choose the right ones and put them together into a working solution?
First, you need a 4G LTE-capable router and a 4G LTE wireless data service plan from a mobile network provider. The Cisco partner community will help you pick the wireless router solution best suited to your business.
