Product Overview

Cellular wireless data connections like 3G and 4G LTE have redefined the way remote broadcasts are done. In particular, USB cellular modems make connecting to these networks fast and simple. But many of the off-the-shelf modems offered by carriers are not designed to meet the rigorous demands of the 24/7 news cycle. The solution? Comrex Connect Modems.

Comrex designed the Comrex Connect Modem to support the unique needs of remote broadcasters. A high-powered, industrial strength 4G/LTE modem, the Connect Modem is also 3G compatible. Outfitted with a high-gain antenna, the Connect Modem is more powerful than most USB data modems available on the market, to handle the heavy data load of an IP audio broadcast. The Connect Modem comes in three varieties to support connections to Verizon, AT&T, and International networks, and has been PTCRB and carrier certified to meet all necessary regulations.

Comrex Connect Modems are available for both LiveShot and ACCESS. For more information or to purchase a modem, contact your favorite Comrex dealer.
