I have over 300 of these in the field. Failure rate is virtually zero over 5 years.

Date Added: 11/05/2019 by Gail N. (ATOKA, TN)
I have several hundred in the field for remote telemetry. I've had exactly zero fail without a known root cause such as lightning strikes. No complaints

Why does thia NOT come with a power supply?????

Date Added: 04/01/2019 by Stefan G. (Santa Clara, CA)
Everything works great so far.

Date Added: 03/06/2019 by Paul K. (Danville, CA)
Works great. We have about 100+ installed in the field in the meter rooms of office buildings. The support for variable DC voltage is a big plus since the equipment connected to this router runs on 24V DC.

Great router no complaints as of yet

I have bought two of these, first one worked great, still running. bought a 2nd one as a backup. hooked it and got it working when we bought it then set it aside. 3 months later hooked it up to use and it will not connect. swapped SIM cards with know working card, still nothing. tried several times to contact NetComm support, no answer. so now I need another replacement... spend a few hundred more for a pepwave/cradlepoint ? or continue to buy these as disposable units.
