Examples UMTS router MX530

Use as a mobile router for remote access

With the MX530 mobile router, you can access connected devices remotely quickly and easily. Depending on the application, simply activate the pre-installed mdex SIM Vodafone and combine it with our mdex IP services (fixed, public or fixed, private IP address). This means that your connected end device can be reached remotely in just a few steps. Of course, you can also use your own SIM cards or mdex third-party IP services. The individual setup steps can be found in the MX530 setup instructions(ger).

  • Easy access via a fixed, public or fixed private IP address (IPv4)
  • Pre-installed mdex SIM Vodafone can be activated in just a few steps
  • Intuitive configuration via web browser for easy commissioning

Connection of several devices via LAN and WLAN

The UMTS router MX530 has four LAN ports (3x LAN, 1xWAN) as well as a WLAN module for the connection of end devices. Simply connect your end devices with a network cable to a free LAN socket of the MX530 or connect them to the MX530 via WLAN. If you want to connect more than 3 devices to the MX530 via LAN, you can also use an Ethernet switch. You can set all device functions via the input mask in your web browser.
