Option CloudGate 3G/4G LTE coming June 2014


Last year Option released the CloudGate and it has become a highly versatile M2M gateway with the flexibility to quickly switch between all major U.S. and international carriers. The concept was simple, design a rugged cross carrier device that was expandable with module inserts to fit specific company requirements like RS-232 serial support, WiFi, additional Ethernet LAN ports etc. This decision allowed the CloudGate to come in at a highly aggressive price point while allowing flexibility if your company happened to need WiFi or something else not found on the baseline unit. The only major complaint we got with the CloudGate from customers was the the lack of 4G LTE support. 

Option has listened to customer suggestions and is now releasing a CloudGate 4G LTE available in the mid part of June 2014. Just like the 2G/3G version this unit will feature a universal chipset allowing you to run 4G LTE on all major carriers support band 4/13/17 LTE. In addition to LTE support the 4G version of the CloudGate will also support 800-850/900/1900/2100Mhz and AWS (1700/2100Mhz bands 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8). This will take the guess work out for a lot of companies doing both U.S. and international deployments that want one reliable easy to use cellular gateway to handle connectivity for all their M2M needs.
