11n WiFi and 4G cellular router with positioning (GNSS), for road applications and tramway


  • 4G LTE router + positioning (GNSS)
  • WiFi router (with fast roaming <30ms) or access point
  • M12 & FAKRA connectors, ITxPT compliant
  • Automatic Cellular <> WiFi switching
  • Designed for road & trams applications

  • Compact case, wall mounting
  • Centralized administration and configurations management



AirWan-M12 is a simple, reliable and cost-effective solution for connecting fleets of vehicles such as buses, trams, trucks, emergency and public safety vehicles, etc., thanks to its cellular (2G/3G/4G LTE), dual-band WiFi (2.4/5GHz) and GNSS (GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, Beidou) interfaces, as well as its 2 Fast Ethernet ports.


Mobility : AirWan-M12 is equipped with high-speed wireless technologies for transmitting data to and from vehicles. For public transport applications (bus and trams), AirWan-M12 makes it possible to pool all data streams (SAE, ticketing, PIS, CCTV...) on a single router. Its WiFi roaming capabilities (<30 ms) ensure continuous data transmission as buses move at the depot. Its automatic switching capabilities between WiFi and 4G/LTE ensure service continuity when they go into operation. AirWan-M12 allows vehicles tracking with its GNSS feature. It is also rugged (shock and vibration proof), E-marked ECE R10 and maintenance-free.


Administration and product monitoring : can be achieved directly from a web browser or from WaveManager, the centralized administration software provided by ACKSYS. Besides, its advanced routing and filtering functions make it easy to deploy large fleets of vehicles.
