The verdict is in: LTE is a critical component of any enterprise networking strategy. From retail stores, restaurants, offices, and other fixed locations to vehicles, such as police fleets and metro buses, that operate as mobile branches, the rising number of IoT devices and Internet-based applications renders Wireless WAN essential, either as a primary or failover link — and with 5G now here, this trend is sure to continue.

This white paper compares the attributes, benefits, and challenges of consumer-grade USB modems versus enterprise-grade modems that are integrated and embedded into purpose-built routers.
