AW12-EI

USB-to-Ethernet Converter

The Assured Wireless AW12-EI Power Injector and USB-to-Ethernet Converter provides seamless integration of the AW12 USB Modem with standard Ethernet-connected routers, gateways and switches.

Part number: AW12-PC-EI

The Assured Wireless AW12 family of high power LTE modems utilize our patented HPUE (High Power User Equipment) technology to provide significantly enhanced LTE range, coverage, and data speeds. The AW12 USB modem is certified as FirstNet-ready and meets all 3GPP and FCC requirements as both a Power Class 1 (HPUE) device on LTE Band 14 and as a Power Class 3 (standard power) device on other AT&T bands. It operates as a CAT12 device with data rates up to 600 Mb/s download and 150 Mb/s upload.

The companion AW12-EI Power Injector and USB-to-Ethernet Converter provides seamless integration of the AW12 USB modem with standard Ethernet-connected routers, gateways and switches. To assure a high-speed connection to associated LAN devices, a Gigabit Ethernet connection is provided that also includes Type 2 PoE capability to power the unit and associated AW12 from the LAN. Alternatively, the unit includes enhanced power conditioning to operate from 9 to 36VDC sources to assure operation even in the most demanding vehicular environments.

Ignition- and sleep-sensing and sleep mode capabilities are provided to ensure that the unit and associated AW12 seamlessly operate in tandem with user’s routers and gateways. The AW12-EI also provides enhanced diagnostic capabilities using a multicolor LED indicator lamp to assess the condition of the unit, the associated AW12 device, and the wireless network connection.

A ruggedized mounting plate is available to mount the AW12-EI side-by-side with the AW12.

What is the AW12-EI?

The AW12-EI is a companion product that provides an ethernet port and power conditioning to the AW12 device.

What kind of Ethernet connection does the AW12-EI provide?

The AW12-EI provides a high speed (Gigabit) Ethernet connection to the associated router, switch or other connected network device using a standard RJ-45 connector. It is also capable of PoE (Power over Ethernet) capability (see below).

What is the operating voltage range of the AW12-EI?

The AW12-EI has an extended DC input voltage range of 9 to 36 VDC providing protection from vehicular voltage transients. In addition, the AW12-EI also has the capability to accept operating power from PoE (Power over Ethernet) sources.

What are the PoE requirements of the AW12-EI?

When PoE operation of the AW12-EI is needed, care must be taken to assure that the power source meets IEEE 802.3at Type-2 PoE specifications, also known as PoE+. This ensures the connected PoE device has sufficient capability to provide the necessary DC power (up to 25 Watts) for full HPUE operation of the associated AW12.

What do the led status colors on the AW12-EI mean?

The multi-color LED on the AW12-EI provides invaluable data on the connection status of the associated AW-12 HPUE Modem:

Blue = Initialization

Flashing Red = Data connection error. Check that a properly provisioned SIM has been inserted.

Solid Red = No SIM is installed

Flashing Green = Connecting

Solid Green = Attached to the network
