Can 4G DTU be used as a 4G industrial router

4G DTU is a wireless communication device that can convert wired transmission protocols into wireless 4G networks for transmission. Compared with routers, 4G DTUs are more focused on data transmission and remote control, and are widely used in industries such as industrial automation and intelligent transportation. However, 4G DTUs can also serve as a simple 4G industrial router in certain situations.


Firstly, it should be clarified that although 4G DTUs and 4G industrial routers have some overlap, their main functions are still different. 4G DTUs are mainly used to convert wired interfaces into wireless communication, and transmit data to the cloud or other systems through 4G networks. 4G industrial routers, on the other hand, connect multiple devices and provide functions such as internal communication within the local area network and internet connectivity. Therefore, in very simple situations, 4G DTUs can replace the functions of 4G industrial routers, but in complex network environments, 4G industrial routers are still irreplaceable.


Secondly, the prerequisite for using a 4G DTU as a 4G industrial router is to have certain conditions. Firstly, 4G DTUs must support wireless local area network functionality, i.e. WIFI functionality. Secondly, there needs to be sufficient wired interfaces to connect to other devices. Finally, sufficient performance is needed to support the traffic and operation of the entire network.


Under the above conditions, a 4G DTU can serve as a 4G industrial router by following these steps:


Set WIFI function

To use a 4G DTU as a 4G industrial router, the first step is to set up the WIFI function. Normally, 4G DTUs do not have WIFI enabled by default and require entering the device management interface for settings. The specific operation methods may vary depending on different manufacturers and models, and should be set according to the instructions during the operation process.


Connect to other devices

When connecting to other devices, you can use the wired interface of a 4G DTU or the built-in WIFI module. If using a wired interface, it is necessary to plug the network cables of other devices into the wired interface of the 4G DTU and make corresponding settings. If using WIFI to connect to other devices, you need to search for the WIFI signal of the 4G DTU on the other devices and enter the password to complete the connection. When connecting to other devices, please be careful not to exceed the maximum connection limit of 4G DTU.


4G Industrial Router Settings

After connecting to other devices, you need to enter the 4G industrial router settings interface of the 4G DTU to perform IP address allocation, port mapping, and other related settings. These settings are basically the same as those of a regular home router, but the specific operation methods may vary depending on different manufacturers and models. When setting up a 4G industrial router, please ensure that it does not pose security risks to the network or affect the normal use of other devices.


4G DTU can serve as a simple 4G industrial router, but it is mainly used for data transmission and remote control. When selecting equipment, it should be based on actual needs and ensure that the equipment can meet its own needs and safety requirements. Meanwhile, during use, attention should be paid to the stability and safety of the equipment, and relevant regulations and laws should be followed.
