Bittium SafeMove® Mobile Router Toolkit
Bittium´s SafeMove® Mobile Router Toolkit is a set of mature software components that allow manufacturers of vehicular routers, cellular routers and multichannel routers to introduce solid network security, uninterrupted connectivity, seamless network switching, centralized router management and visual connectivity analytics components into their product offering.
The Mobile Router Toolkit (MRTK) is a software stack for OEMs, specifically designed to be integrated into embedded Linux based mobile router systems. It is also available for embedded Windows variants and Android.
Uninterrupted seamless connectivity for mission critical applications
SafeMove® Mobile Router toolkit is ideal for multichannel routers and it provides uninterrupted, seamless connectivity for the router and any devices the router serves. Thanks to our mobility management, dynamically using & choosing the link is completely transparent to existing data sessions. Mission critical applications are always connected using the best available link.
Multilink bonding for maximum throughput and performance
With advanced link aggregation features, multichannel routers take advantage of all the modems and links included in the router. This is what sets true multichannel routers apart from simple Mi-Fi devices and ordinary wireless routers. With SafeMove® Mobile Router Toolkit, the link aggregation not only provides you with maximum throughput, but also allows your sessions to seamlessly, transparently and dynamically move from one link to another as the link capabilities change.
Solid security and network traffic confidentiality
Multichannel VPN routers can use SafeMove® MRTK's VPN component, which provides high throughput and strong security with modern cryptography options and NSA Suite B compliant encryption and authentication capabilities. VPN tunnels benefit from SafeMove® MRTK´s advanced mobility management and are not affected by link changes. The SafeMove® Mobile VPN router keeps your data always protected.
Device management for keeping the router fleet under control
With the SafeMove® Manager toolkit, you can keep your routers in control, always up-to-date and always protected. You are able to update the configurations and policies remotely. Routers will report back to the SafeMove® Manager, which will allow operators and administrators to maintain visibility over the router fleet in an easy to use web user interface with full mapping support. With an embedded PKI system, the authentication keys and certificates can automatically be enrolled to the routers. Flexible and granular access management controls which routers can access which enterprise systems.
Analytics for assured field performance
With the SafeMove® Analytics SDK integrated in the router, you´ll get facts and visibility of the level of connectivity your router provides. WAN optimization has never been easy: measure and analyze the mobile performance and learn about the areas where you get poor coverage, identify potential problems, and make informed decisions in order to further optimize connectivity. By extending the collected analytics data, you can be sure to capture the information that matters the most.
Scalable client/server solution
The SafeMove® Mobile Router toolkit is a client/server software solution. The client components can be embedded into multichannel router hardware to provide seamless and reliable switching between the best available broadband data networks including LTE and Satellite or any other link type. The server software consists of components that can be clustered for load balancing and high availability.
Solid, standards based architecture
The SafeMove® Mobile Router toolkit builds on public Internet standards and protocols such as IPsec and Mobile IP. The software and architecture are mature and battle proven, and have been successfully used in demanding environments in production for over a decade. This ensures compatibility and interoperability with existing systems, and that the mobile router features work in all environments encountered in the real Internet, including satellite networks, QoS routing environments, middleboxes etc. The components are continuously developed to keep up with new standards and requirements in the quickly evolving wireless Internet space.
Pick and choose the toolkit components that match your needs
OEMs can choose to integrate all Bittium SafeMove® Mobile Router Toolkit components into their offering or adopt them one by one. Bittium offers a range of NRE services for optimizing the toolkit into the OEM´s specific business case.
