A commercial-grade automotive WiFi router for commercial vehicles
The BEAM 5i automotive WiFi router is designed for all types of vehicles. Therefore, suitable for minibuses, coaches, buses, and commercial vehicles, through to motorhomes and boats. Onboard systems and passengers connect to the internet via 4G/LTE networks. The wide voltage input range means the BEAM 5i can safely connect to either 12V or 24V vehicle power sources. In addition, it can also connect to a mains power supply using our optional mains adapter.
Ultra-flexible internet WiFi
The device is ready to go out-of-the-box. Consequently, it ships pre-configured for most applications. Also, the simple set-up wizard will connect you to the Internet within minutes. The LCD screen, located on the front panel, provides clear status information. For example, mobile network status, signal strength, and clear diagnostic information. Meanwhile, you can manage every aspect of the system with a comprehensive Web-based administration interface. For example, hotspot portal branding and customization, site blacklisting, and data usage limits. Certainly, this is an important feature when providing Wi-Fi services for your customers and passengers. You can monetize, and control, Internet access easily with the built-in support for RADIUS servers. Third-party RADIUS services, such as HotSpotSystem and Purple Wi-Fi are easily integrated.
Fully open-source and customisable
BEAM iSeries routers are powered by BeamOS-R, based on the OpenWRT Linux OS. While the built-in application server is powered by the Debian Linux based BeamOS-i. The BEAM 5i offers a fully open system. Therefore, you can install your own applications, build management pages or customise the firmware to your own requirements. In addition, the onboard HDMI video and audio outputs can be utilised for your own applications.
The BEAM 5i firmware is maintained in-house so you can be sure your device is supported by experts that know the BEAM 5i inside-out, and our free 30-day Get-You-Going technical support and comprehensive online Owner’s Portal means that you won’t be left in the dark.
The powerful BEAM 5i automotive WiFi router goes beyond offering passenger WiFi. More importantly, its comprehensive security features, multiple Wi-Fi networks and Ethernet port, are designed to connect onboard systems to the Internet through a single device.
