“Having used some of the other brands of router on the market, the IR700 is by far the most professional looking” says systems engineer Aaron Wilkes. “We have been using the IR700 router in the field for the last 18 months and we are very pleased with the reliability of the unit, they are in quite harsh conditions being sat on the side of motorways and major A roads, and apart from network problems we haven’t had any major call outs for them. The SMS reboot mode is a very handy feature for site maintenance especially and the interface is very easy to use and it has some advanced features for a mobile router. All in all, a very good product.”
