Join us as we unbox the new BR1 Mini (Hardware 3) LTE! Engineered with the highest quality build in mind. Sleek outside, yet ruggedized inside, this device has been built to withstand whatever deployment scenario thrown at it.
Hello everyone, and welcome back to another unboxing video. Today we have our hands on the new BR1, mini LTE, U.S. PR and hardware version three. So let’s get right into the unboxing So once you open up the box, the first thing you’re going to see is this handy QuickStart guide. It’s going to tell you how to get into the UI and get this thing online.
Then right over here to the right is going to be all your accessories. So first thing you’re going to see is four antennas. Two of them are wi fi and two of them are cellular Next, you’re going to have a six foot antenna cable And lastly, you’re going to have the brand new DC Power Jacket that has a four pin layout so that the device has built in ignition since making it really easy to wire it into any vehicle.
So now let’s get into the router itself. As you can see, physically, it hasn’t really changed all that much. It is slightly longer at five inches and it is slightly heavier at just under £1. But other than that, nothing has really changed. There’s only been major improvements. It still has all of the really cool benefits of speed fusion, like heart fail over and way and smoothing.
Additionally, if you come over here on the interface, you can see there’s three land ports, all gigabit Ethernet. There’s one LAN slash way import. And then if you look over here, there’s actually one LAN port that provides P.O.S., and that means you can wire this in and move it to wherever you need. If there’s better reception or if you need to extend the Wi-Fi range, it can be power just off of this port.
If you move over here, you can see the status lights and the power, Jack. Normally, you’re going to have your status light, your Wi-Fi, your cellular light and your reset button right here. And then this is where you plug in the DC power. It has all of the pan out, as you can see here, has your negative positive in and your ignition.
Additionally, the router itself is a Cat four modem, so that means it can have up to 150 megabits of cellular download and 50 megabits of cellular upload. The router itself can do 300 megabits of throughput and 80 megabits of unencrypted VPN throughput. So now let’s move on over to the back. You’ll see a couple of changes. One of them being there’s now two Wi-Fi antennas.
This device now has Wi-Fi five, meaning that it will now transmit 2.4 and five gigahertz Wi-Fi bands. Increasing your speeds and increasing your range. Then up here you’re going to see your cellular connections. There’s two just like always, and then one G.P.S. Connector. The only other major difference on the back you’re going to see is that they have now moved to nano sim size and not standard SIM.
It is still in the exact same way. It’s spring loaded. You just have to push it in. Other than that, let’s kind of get started and get everything hooked up. If you’re going to use the GPS antenna, I kind of suggest doing it first just because it kind of gets in the way and that’s right here in the middle and you just have to get it snug you don’t have to get a wrench or anything like that.
And then I would suggest probably putting your Wi-Fi antennas on. Same deal. They just need to be hand tight and snug And then lastly, these are two cellular antennas. Again, it doesn’t matter which one you put on, as long as you put both of them on and you snug them down, hang tight.
And then lastly, all you’re going to want to do is just plug it in And with that, I’ve shown you all the major changes and improvements to the new B R1 mini LTE. Thank you.
I have a quick question regarding this device. If I have a Verizon iPhone 8, would I be able to just remove the sim card from the phone and use it in the MAX BR1 Mini and the cellular card? Thank you for the information.
Thanks for your question, Jamison.
In most cases, you need a data or tablet data plan on the carrier SIM card for it to work in this device. You can add this card through your carrier.
What type of application are you looking to use the BR1?
