If you’re looking for a fast, inexpensive single LTE radio router with an excellent user interface, the Teltonika RUTX11 might be for you.

In the last few years, there have been a lot of new, affordable LTE routers showing up in the market. Many of the manufacturers have had products in other markets such as IoT and manufacturing, which is the case with Teltonika. They have been around a long time and have a big background in IoT and manufacturing with products spanning modems, switches, routers, and gateways.

A couple of readers mentioned a newer platform that Teltonika came out with called the RUTX11. It was hard to get initially, but I was able to get mine from a niche US wireless vendor. It appears it is available on Amazon now, and if you purchase it using the link above, it helps support my site.

Since the release of the RUTX11, they have come out with the RUTX12 which is a dual LTE CAT6 version, and the RUTXR1, a rack mount version with dual power supplies and a single LTE CAT6 radio. Unfortunately I could not find the RUTX12 easily in the US, but from what I can tell, the only difference is two LTE modems.

The biggest challenge with these products is the CAT6 modem which is almost 6 years old. While they are still good modems, they don’t support all of the new bands and features of the more prevalent CAT12 or even the newer CAT18 modems. The newer band support is probably the biggest advantage they have, as providers like T-Mobile and AT&T leverage them for longer reaching signal and more coverage in areas that didn’t have it before. However, they will work reasonably well in most situations.
