The Helix product line is ideal for fixed, portable and mobile applications including point of sale, wireline replacement and backup, surveillance, public safety, and transportation.
By leveraging field proven ALEOS intelligence, Helix routers combine extensive routing capabilities and security features with an easy-to-use interface and comprehensive remote management. ALEOS intelligence, coupled with AceWare(TM) remote management, lowers the total cost of ownership by simplifying device setup, provisioning, control, and maintenance through extensive remote configuration and diagnostic capabilities. Helix routers will be commercially available later this year, offering a choice of HSPA or EV-DO Rev A network technologies.
Helix routers provide a configurable WAN/LAN Ethernet port option and a built-in connection failover feature to ensure business continuity. Sensing when the primary connection fails, the Helix router automatically switches to the 3G wireless network. The router then continuously monitors wireline network availability and automatically reverts back to the primary connection when service is restored. This intelligence enables the device to serve as a critical backup for businesses that rely on real-time transaction processing, security monitoring, online customer service functions or any critical high-availability application.
Mobile and Portable Hotspots
Helix routers can serve as a central hub of connectivity for mobile and portable workstations like those found in modern delivery trucks, ambulances, and field service vehicles. They can also provide mobile hotspot access for public transportation vehicles, enabling riders to stay connected on their commutes. It offers a fully IPSec compliant VPN for data security, dual diversity 3G antenna ports, and an optional 802.11b/g WiFi access point with WPA and WPA2 encryption to provide secure access for authorized multiple mobile computing platforms, both on-board and within range of the vehicle.
