An In-depth Look
the TELiG E1500 LTE Edge Router
The equipment that powers the IIoT, or Industrial Internet of Things, is responsible for ensuring that jobsite machinery carries out the job-critical tasks it is responsible for. It is edge technology deployed directly adjacent to the businesses that rely on critical automation. Whether that technology is employed at a commercial jobsite, an electric utility pole, a mining operation, or on an offshore oil drilling rig, the equipment used has to be both durable and secure. The TELiG E1500 LTE enabled edge router offers both in a single package, combining industrial reliability and efficiency with a rugged, modular design.
A Diversity of Purpose: Markets Served
The TELiG E1500 is meant to be deployed close to the end-user and is perfectly suited for industries and applications that navigate hazardous environments and rough terrain. The TELiG E1500 provides the ideal wireless connectivity infrastructure for:
- Heavy-duty IIoT applications
- Electric Power Distribution automation
- Manufacturing processes that use distributed intelligence
- Smart cities/ urban asset management
- Digital oil fields
- Smart campuses
- Utility power grids and renewable energy management
Each of these sectors represents applications, machines, and systems that keep key processes automated and functioning. The TELiG E 1500 keeps networked elements connected and running efficiently through its LTE communication capabilities and RTU protocol bridging features. With the adaptability of LTE technology, it’s easy to future proof the unit against the constant evolution of new technologies and emerging markets that are not yet fully realized. With the adaptability of the TELiG E1500’s design, you won’t have to worry about your network infrastructure becoming obsolete.
Product Features: an In-depth Look
The TELiG E1500 combines next-generation technology, features, and processing power with a rugged, durable design and carrier-grade reliability. The unit is built on a Linux-based platform and is driven by powerful hardware. The TELiG E1500 harnesses a single or dual-core ARM Cortex A9 32-bit microprocessor with a quad-core processor upgrade available.
This versatile edge router has the capacity to handle a wide concert of requests simultaneously. Featuring up to 4 gigabytes DDR3 SDRAM and up to 32 gigabytes eMMC memory, the unit can handle complex, multifaceted network tasks easily and reliably.
The device’s connectivity is designed to be adaptable to a wide range of scenarios.
The TELiG E1500 LTE Edge Router features:
- 2 10/10/1000 Ethernet RJ45 Ethernet ports
- 1 RS232/RS422/RS 485 auto-sensing serial port for RTU device communications
- 1 RS232 serial port for RTU device communications
- 1 RJ45 console port for direct console communications with a PC
- 3 radio expansion slots in support of up to 3 active LTE networks
While the TELiG E1500 is a processing powerhouse, the unit itself is lean and portable, allowing you to deploy it adjacent to your worksite as necessary. Weighing only one pound, the device measures only 4.6″Wx1.9″Hx4.5″D, letting you transfer it as the situation dictates. The unit can easily stand up to hazardous environments, operating interruption-free anywhere between -40℃ to 70℃. It is capable of operating for up to 16 hours in environments up to 85℃. The unit is resistant to variations in humidity as well, operating reliably in environments all the way up 95% humidity, non-condensing. Paired with the optional waterproof IP67 outdoor NEMA rated enclosure, the TELiG E1500 can quite literally take a beating.
Run third party applications on the Edge
Council Rock supports edge computing and 3rd party applications in a variety of ways. Already developed applications can quickly and securely be deployed as isolated docker containers to the device. Additionally, the TELiG offers the flexibility to compile applications to be run directly in the base OS.
Modular Technology: Cat 12, Cat 6, and CatM/ NBIoT
While the TELiG E1500 may be able to navigate the most challenging industrial worksite applications, it’s the unit’s adaptability that takes center stage. The TELiG E1500 is able to harness an unprecedented range of network diversity, giving it an unsurpassed level of reliability in the event of network failover. The unit includes compatibility with:
- Cat 12
- Cat 6
- CatM/ NBIoT
As a result, it is able to utilize a wide variety of network types and data speeds, giving you persistent coverage wherever the jobsite takes you. With up to 3 simultaneous and active LTE networks the TELiG E1500 is always on and always connected providing superior network redundancy and ultra high reliability in the event of a network disruption. The unit features automatic failover and self-provisioning capabilities so that you don’t have to worry about network downtime affecting your critical applications. Todd Owen, VP of Sales at Council Rock said of the device, “You would have to buy three separate model variants of competing hardware to achieve the same network diversity as one E1500 edge router.”

With its powerful technology, the TELiG E1500 can access both public and private networks including:
- Anterix Band 8
- CBRS Band 48
- Band 71
The leverage that network diversity brings to the table allows end-users to easily migrate to new networks as they become available, future proofing the customer’s investment.
