The new USR Courier M2M 3G Cellular Gateway provides LAN to WWAN routing and GPS functionality in a single device certified on all major 3G cellular networks (CDMA/EVDO and WCDMA/HSPA+). An embedded serial port allows quick implementation for a wide variety of serial based systems already out in the field making it ideal for M2M Serial applications including remote maintenance and control, Point of Sale, monitoring, and automation. The Courier Cellular Gateway is simple to configure locally or remotely from your PC, tablet or smartphone with the cloud based GUI allowing fast implementation —reducing customer costs significantly and lowering the entry barriers to a wide range of M2M solutions and an easier transition from analog to cellular. Built-in watchdog applications provide persistent connectivity for M2M applications that require always-on bidirectional data transfers. USR's cellular modems and gateways continue to offer reliable, secure connections for mission critical applications — now for both GSM and CDMA networks allowing more flexible and cost-effective global solutions.

Most cellular networks use a different type of technology that isn't compatible with dial-up analog systems. Our Whitepaper explains in detail the how's and why's but the high level answer is that most cellular data networks are packet based, rely on IP addresses, and are client/server whereas dial-up systems are peer-to-peer direct connection and rely on phone numbers which normally cannot communicate without additional hardware and/or software that could complicate how a solution works.
USR does offer a unique solution that emulates a dial-up modem over a cellular connection that can allow a true drop-in solution. See the Courier® Modemulator™ & Cellular Gateway for more information.

The cost of analog phone lines is on average $50 per month per line in North America. Cellular services when pooled can provide even greater cost savings with small data packages and low data volumes. The cost savings increase as the volume goes up, whereas the dial-up monthly expenses are consistent but pricey.
Possibly. Depending on how your SIM is provisioned, it may allow a cellular modem or gateway to originate a connection to the IP address of a TCP/IP server on the Internet. If your SIM does work, you won’t have M2M features like static IP address, data pooling, peer-to-peer routing, or host-to-device VPN.
When the cellular service is provided by a Mobile Network Operator (MNO), the IP address reported by the USR3510 GUI may be public and routable. Normally this IP address provided by the MNO will be dynamic so it will change periodically, and the MNO may block access to this IP address with a firewall.
When the cellular service is provided by a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), the IP address reported by the USR3510 GUI is not public and routable. The reported IP address is used only by the MVNO to contact the cellular network. The MVNO will translate the IP address using Network Address Translation (NAT) and provide you with a different routable IP address. The USR3510 cannot report that IP address. The MVNO will control whether your IP address is private or public, and static or dynamic.
