Fortress LTE Band 14 Rugged Outdoor Omni-Directional UE

Connectivity with Certainty

The Fortress LTE Band 14 Rugged Outdoor Omni- Directional User Equipment (UE) is a 3GPP Category 3 UE, designed specifically for Public Safety Band 14 Frequency Division Duplex LTE (788-798MHz Uplink, 758-768MHz Downlink). The dual-antenna configuration supports receive diversity and downlink Multiple Input and Multiple Output (MIMO) for superior radio performance. The LTE rugged outdoor UE supports 100Base-T Ethernet for connection to a PC or to a compatible residential Wi-Fi router for internet sharing.

  • High performance radio and data throughput
  • Rugged form factor allows for flexible installation
  • Easy-to-configure and monitor via web browser interface
  • Over-the-air software upgradeable

Product Details


  • The LTE rugged outdoor UE is packaged in an IP67 rated water and dust proof metal enclosure. Two external omni-directional antennas are supplied with the UE, providing 360-degree radio coverage without the need for professional antenna alignment. In a typical installation, the UE is placed at an outdoor location for the best radio signal reception. An Ethernet cable carries data between the UE and a host device such as a PC. The same Ethernet cable powers the UE via passive Power over Ethernet (PoE), making installation very simple.
  • User authentication and security is accomplished by standard 3GPP user authentication. A web-based UE management tool provides an easy-to-use interface to configure and monitor the status of the UE. Software upgrades for future LTE releases are done seamlessly over-the-air by network push without any intervention from the subscriber.
  • The LTE rugged outdoor UE includes built-in network functions. The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server in the UE automatically assigns an IP address to a host device connected to the UE Ethernet port. The support of Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) allows the UE to form a virtual point-to-point connection with a gateway on the packet data network. This allows private networks to be accessed via the LTE UE without using Network Address Translation.
