Industrial Cellular Routers


M!DGE3, 3rd generation, was introduced in 2022. Firmware of this more powerful router is based on RipEX2 radio modem, so it has the same fully responsive web interface. M!DGE3 provides more interfaces including SFP, mPCIe extension board and only one HW model covers frequency bands worldwide.
M!DGE3e is the essential version of M!DGE3 suitable for less demanding installations. It is built on the same platform as M!DGE3, but we have thoughtfully stripped some features to make it more affordable. Both models are fully compatible and together with RipEX radio modems offers an unrivalled solution for combining mobile and licensed UHF/VHF radio in one hybrid network.

Most operators are building 5G NSA (non-standalone) networks. 5G NSA networks need the existing 4G/LTE network to be functional, so it cannot be switched off.

Building 5G SA (standalone) networks is very expensive and it is highly probable that 5G SA will only be built in locations with high subscriber density.

  • 5G NSA
    • NSA – Non-Standalone
    • Also supports 4G/LTE devices
    • M!DGE3 works without problems
    • Built by most operators
  • 5G SA
    • SA – Standalone
    • Only a few test networks worldwide
    • M!DGE3 must be extended with mPCI module with relevant cellular module (pending)

Since the majority of new 5G networks are NSA and they need existing 4G/LTE infrastructure to be functional, there is no need to worry that M!DGE3 will not work in them.

Applications where M!DGE is used will not benefit from the main advantages of future 5G SA networks (high speed, low latency…). As it is not clear when and where the 5G SA networks will be built, it does not make sense to serially equip M!DGE with an expensive 5G module now. A better and more economical option is to add the mPCI extension module only in cases where it is really necessary.

4G, 3G, 2G
M!DGE fully supports all modes and generations of traditional 4G, 3G, 2G.

RACOM is a primary producer and therefore does not provide delivery of all available accessories for its products. This list contains tested accessories which RACOM is able to deliver together with M!DGE units. Components are only held in limited quantities and the delivery date may therefore be affected by the need for subcontracting. If you require other accessories, please contact us or your supplier.

There are many antennas available on the market which can be used with M!DGE. If you are not sure about a specific type, please contact us for consultation.
