The Semtech AirLink® MG90 is a high performance LTE-Advanced vehicle multi-networking platform, purpose built to provide secure, always-on connectivity for mission critical applications in public safety, transit and field services.

With extensible multi-network connectivity, the MG90 offers dual LTE-Advanced with Band 14 option, Dual Concurrent Gigabit Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet, with extensions to Land Mobile Radio (LMR) and satellite systems.

The MG90 dynamically selects the best available network, based on user-customised scoring systems, using its intelligent policy defined link management, and is able to effortlessly switch between WAN connections to provide uninterrupted communications and prevent downtime, performance issues or dead zones.

Together with the AirLink® Connection Manager (ACM), the MG90 consolidates the security for all connected technologies in the vehicle area network (VAN), vastly simplifying deployment and enabling the enterprise to retain management control over network access and connected mobile assets.

The MG90 seamlessly integrates with the AirLink® Mobility Manager (AMM)—a powerful, end-to-end network management solution—to enable simplified, remote and realtime insight and control of connected mobile assets and mission critical applications, and supports vehicle tracking, telemetry and asset management applications. Purpose built for the vehicle with its ruggedised form factor, the MG90 delivers best-in-class reliability and ensures continual operation in harsh mobile environments.

Extensible Multi-Network Connectivity

Built for first responders and in-field personnel, the AirLink MG90 offers up to 600 Mbps downlink speed over LTE Advanced, 1.3 Gbps over dual radio, dual concurrent 3x3 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and 5-port Gigabit Ethernet. The AirLink MG90 can host up to 128 clients at any one time, and concurrently connect multiple mission critical applications in and around the vehicle including laptops, MVRs and tablets, in addition to providing live video streaming, and rapid secure access to remote databases. The AirLink MG90 supports up to 26 LTE frequency bands, enabling operation on emerging LTE networks worldwide. It has a single variant for LTE networks in North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, which allows international customers to use the same AirLink MG90 router in many geographical areas, vastly simplifying large deployments across multiple carriers. With dual-SIM functionality for automatic failover between SIMs, the MG90 offers superior connectivity and cost optimisation when roaming.

Purpose Built Vehicle-Ready Design

Purpose built for vehicle power environments, the AirLink MG90 does not require any external power conditioning, is optimised to survive extreme transient surges, and maintains continuous power through cold cranking as low as 5V. The MG90 was developed with industrial grade components to accommodate extreme temperatures, such as a customised die cast aluminium housing to manage thermodynamics. It is sealed to meet IP64 for resistance to dust and water ingress, and has been tested to meet and exceed the MIL-STD-810G specifications for shock, vibration, temperature and humidity.
