Accelerated 6330-MX 4G failover routerBRISBANE, AUS: Feb. 12, 2018  Accelerated Concepts, now part of Digi International, (NASDAQ: DGII, www.digi.com), a leading global provider of Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity products and services, today announced it has launched an Australian-designed 4G failover router that delivers National Broadband Network (NBN) speeds over wireless networks to support IP-enabled devices in the smart home and business.

The Accelerated™ 6330-MX router, which supports 4G LTE CAT6 speeds and all 4G/4GX carrier bandwidths in Australia and New Zealand, including Band 28, is designed to keep the smart home and business online when wired Internet access fails. The attractive ‘prosumer’ device is simple to locate in any premises with Power-over-Ethernet support and an integrated wireless access point. Pricing for the 6330-MX – and Accelerated’s range of enterprise-grade 4G/4GX and CAT 6 failover routers - is available from the Accelerated Australian web store.

Accelerated Concepts designs 4G failover routers that provide Internet access via cellular data networks when primary broadband links fail. Built-in intelligent bandwidth support makes Accelerated routers ideal for both congested city networks and rural areas where telephony and broadband data compete for popular frequency bands. Band 28, on the 700 megahertz (MHz) frequency formerly used by analogue television services in Australia, is typically uncongested.

David Malcolm, executive director of Network Professional Services (NPS), Accelerated’s master reseller for Australia and New Zealand, said that the Accelerated 6330-MX router was a great way to beat the “NBN blues”.

NPS founder David MalcolmNPS founder David MalcolmMelbourne-based NPS (Network Professional Services) has discovered an upside to NBN rollout delays by using the Aussie-designed failover routers to solve the problem of delayed connections.

NPS has this month received the Accelerated Concepts Australian Partner of the Year Award 2017 for exemplary growth and market penetration of the Australian market.

Accelerated routers, which provide Internet access via 4G cellular data networks when primary broadband links fail, are designed by Brisbane-based Accelerated Concepts Ltd, but until the past year, were available only internationally through US-based Accelerated Concepts Inc.

Since 2016, NPS, as Accelerated’s Master Reseller in Australia, has both sold and supported the range of routers and built a national retail distribution network for the devices. Accelerated has a broad range of industrial-strength 4G-capable routers from $499 at https://www.acau.com.au/.

Accelerated Concepts Pty Ltd managing director Matt Ramsay said NPS had proved itself an exemplary partner in raising the brand’s national profile. “NPS founder David Malcolm is a passionate advocate for our products who has established Accelerated as a credible local brand,” he said.

Accelerated Concepts has launched 4G failover routers that support all carrier bands in Australia and New Zealand, including Band 28, boosting mobile broadband speeds for congested city and bush networks.

The Aussie-designed band-aggregating routers, the just-launched Accelerated 6350-SR and the upgraded Accelerated 6300-CX, now support every carrier frequency in both countries, allowing connection to the least congested bands.

Essendon Renault CFO Les HoganEssendon Renault CFO Les HoganMelbourne car dealership Essendon Renault has saved thousands of dollars a year by deploying Accelerated 4G routers to avoid broadband breakdowns that can bring the business to a standstill.

Essendon Renault is highly reliant on the Internet to operate efficiently, with a state-of-the-art Virtual Machine Cluster serving remote desktop sessions, email and virtualised routing technology and a cloud-based virtual PABX. Both Sales and Service departments rely on real-time Internet access.

However, the company, which has branches in North Melbourne and Moonee Ponds, has experienced a range of broadband outages or service disruptions that have prevented one, or both, branches from accessing the Internet. In one case, the switch to Naked ADSL services disrupted Internet access for the next two weeks.

Essendon Renault Financial Controller Les Hogan said some disruptions had been show-stoppers. “If we haven’t got that instant communication all the time, then my business just stops,” he said.
