Teltonika TCR100 4G Router

The Teltonika TCR100 router is the new Industrial 4G Router designed for the consumer. If you want a 4G router for the home or for the office and wanted to use an Industrial style router instead of the plastic home style 4G routers then the Teltonika TCR100 4G Router is just for you.

TCR100 4G Router

Who is the Teltonika TCR100 4G Router for?

The TCR100 was designed by Teltonika to give consumers access to a secure and reliable 4G router with a specification that would provide a much better service for the typical home and office user when compared to Teltonika’s M2M industrial 4G routers like the RUT950 and RUT955.

The Teltonika TCR100 has a built-in CAT6 LTE 4G modem which can provide a faster connection to the 4G network when compared to the CAT4 modems used in some other Teltonika routers. The TCR100 also has much faster wired and wireless connectivity than the RUT240 / RUT950 / RUT955. The traditional Teltonika 4G routers are designed for remote access and don’t usually require high speed LAN and WiFi so will just have 10/100 Ethernet ports and 802.11b/g/n WiFi. The Teltonika TCR100 has improved LAN performance with Gigabit Ethernet and dual band 802.11 AC WiFi. The Teltonika TCR100 WiFi enables up to 50 wireless devices to connect.

This router has all the same features built-in as the Teltonika industrial 4g routers so it provides a secure and reliable 4G Internet connection.

Can I use the TCR100 for other applications?

Of course. The Teltonika TCR100 is a higher specification of the RUT950 / RUT951 / RUT240 / RUT241 and gives you better performance for the 4G connection, Ethernet and WiFi and include all the ping reboot, port forwarding and VPN features so I suspect that this is an easy upgrade for many CCTV installers who want a reliable, secure 4G router. Of course, when using the TCR100 router for remote access and monitoring you will need to use a fixed IP SIM Card to enable remote access to the router. Once the Fixed IP SIM card has been inserted and the correct APN is configured in the router settings then you can access the router over the Internet and use port forwarding to connect the devices on the LAN.

If you need remote access to your CCTV NVR and IP cameras then we would recommend using an unlimited data fixed IP SIM Card which gives you a large amount of monthly data so you don’t need to worry about bill shock. These unlimited SIM cards are also handy for normal home or office users that need remote access to their Teltonika TCR100 4G Router.

You can view the video below which demonstrates the basic set up of the TCR100 router and also shows how to configure the Port Forwarding if you are using a Fixed IP SIM Card.

Compatible 4G Antennas for the Teltonika TCR100

The TCR100 router has two SMA antenna connectors on the rear of the unit. These are for the connection of the stick type antennas that are supplied with the router. This means that if you want to use a different 4G antenna, for example connect the TCR100 to an outdoor 4G antenna then it is possible.

We would recommend using the supplied antennas unless there is a situation where the router is installed in a position with a poor signal, but there is a much better signal, close by, outdoors. A high gain outdoor 4G antenna could be mounted where it can get a good signal and deliver this along the antenna cables to the router. We would recommend a MIMO 4G Antenna as this will have two antennas in the housing which connect via the pair of cables to the two SMA connectors on the TCR100. One of the best 4G Antennas is the Fullband MIMORAD which delivers excellent performance for a high quality, stable 4G connection.

An alternative 4G antenna should only be considered if there is a better signal where you want to locate the antenna compared to the signal strength at the router location. If there signal strength is the same then you won’t see much benefit. The gain of the antenna is to compensate for the extra antenna cable length rather than to boost the signal and boost the Internet speed.
