Advantages of using a wireless GPRS/4G Router:


   > A remote or mobile connection is possible (if no local network is available)
   > Ethernet connection can -if desired- be completely separated from the main network 
     Note: If sim card with fixed iP address is used the embedded webserver is available via internet
