Featuring the company's Broadband Bonding technology, PortaBella appliances provide cost-effective and highly reliable Internet connectivity for mobile locations by bonding together multiple cellular wireless Internet access cards – aggregating performance and increasing dependability, according to the company.
The Portabella 7100i supports sim slots for 6 embedded modems, and the Portabella 6100iw supports up to five embedded modems and a built-in Wi-Fi. Both are built with aluminum extrusion and heavy-duty steel and have IP40 certifications. The sma antenna connectors, M12 Ethernet connectors and the remotely manageable power switch are all designed to operate in challenging installation environments.
The Portabella 7100i and Portabella 6100iw can withstand up to 5 Grms of vibration at 5-500Hz, making them ideal for in-vehicle installations, and they can operate in a temperature range of 40°C ~ +70°C. Both have been certified to meet U.S. and European Union standards, including FCC Class A, CE, and various railway certifications.
