The Pepwave Device Connector Rugged is a wireless ac device that was primarily developed to act as a wireless bridge to extend existing networks. The device can pickup existing wifi signals and then either rebroadcast them to multiple independent wifi networks or be configured to be a repeater to the primary network. This device is particularly helpful if wired only devices exist on your network as the Device Connector Rugged can pickup wifi and then hand off that signal to wired devices connected to the Rugged's ethernet ports.
Primary uses cases include:
- Extend existing wifi
- pickup public wifi and rebroadcast locally on a more secure local network
- translate wifi signal to ethernet for non-wifi devices
- create an wireless uplink for remote outbuildings just out of reach of primary wifi
