The AirLink MG90 offers up to 300 Mbps downlink speeds over LTE Advanced, 1.3 Gbps over dual radio, dual concurrent 3x3 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and 5-port Gigabit Ethernet. The AirLink MG90 can host up to 128 clients at any one time, and concurrently connect multiple mission critical applications in and around the vehicle.

Purpose built for vehicle power environments, the AirLink MG90 does not require any external power conditioning, is optimized to survive extreme transient surges and temperatures, and is sealed to meet IP64 and exceed MIL-STD-810G specifications.

Offering built-in vehicle-ready I/O, Bluetooth and Vehicle Telemetry interface, the MG90 enables remote monitoring of auxiliary devices, and can collect OBD-II vehicle telemetry data.

With its built-in policy engine, the MG90 dynamically selects the best available network, based on a customized user-defined scoring system.

Providing seamless network handover and sub-second network switching with its cognitive wireless system, the MG90 is able to automatically select the best available WAN connection to provide “always-on,” uninterrupted connectivity in any circumstance.

Together with the AirLink® Connection Manager (ACM)—an advanced mobile optimized VPN server—the MG90 provides secure data connections and retains a static IP address across multiple WAN networks. It consolidates the security for all connected technologies in the vehicle area network (VAN) into a single, centralized platform.

Coupled with the AirLink® Mobility Manager (AMM), the MG90 supports a leading edge, end-to-end network management solution to enable simplified, remote and real-time mass configuration, control and troubleshooting of all routers, connected mobile assets and mission critical applications.

Available in the enterprise datacenter or in the cloud, the AMM seamlessly integrates with the MG90, displaying a dashboard with an up-to-date view of the entire fleet, and delivers a continuous stream of rich, real-time network data, allowing users to observe, track and examine the behavior of hundreds of devices, networks, and connected vehicle parameters as it occurs.
