Vanguard 5530 – Multi-carrier Cellular Router

The CalAmp Vanguard 5530 offers an all-in-one mobile communications solution for industrial, utility, transportation and enterprise applications.

The Vanguard 5530

The Vanguard 5530 offers the fastest cellular broadband technology integrated with extensive routing capability, delivering robust connectivity and secure high speed data transfer for a broad array of devices and applications. This ready-to-deploy broadband router enables wireless data connectivity for up to two LANs and one serial device over public cellular networks at 4G speeds with strong, Enterprise-grade security (IPSec, VPN, WPA-2) to protect against external threats.

The Vanguard 5530 provides reliable connectivity for:

  • Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)
  • Remote Terminal Units (RTUs)
  • Any Ethernet or serial device.

This single, flexible platform addresses a variety of wireless communications needs: serial to IP conversion, over-the-air configuration and system monitoring to reduce operating and support costs.  In mobile environments, an optional, built-in WiFi access point allows tethered devices to remain connected outside the vehicle.

With a straightforward interface and the powerful DeviceOutlook device management platform, this widely-deployed wireless solution delivers effective performance and rich, field-proven software capabilities out of the box. To extend the Vanguard 5530 capabilities even further, OEMs and developers can build custom applications on the Open Developer Platform (ODP), which provides access to hardware and software services on the device, to facilitate distributed intelligence and local decision making at the edge of the network.
