Hi everyone,

 

We are thrilled to let you know that ER706W-4G is now being introduced to the Asia Pacific and Europe.

 

The ER706W-4G is a groundbreaking SMB router that offers support for 4G LTE sim cards and SMS services. Additionally, it is the first Omada wireless(802.1ax) router with EAP-mesh capabilities. With an enhanced chip scheme and improved processing performance, this router surpasses its predecessor, the ER7206 V1, by providing equal concurrent session support along with higher VPN throughput and capability. Continue reading to discover more about this exciting new product!

 

1. Appearance and Hardware Features

 

The ER706W-4G V1 has a sleek and compact design, measuring 8.9 × 5.2 × 1.4 inches (226 × 131 × 35 mm) excluding the antennas.

 

It features 3 * Wi-Fi antennas and 2 * 4G antennas for optimal signal strength.

The router is equipped with 1 * Gigabit SFP WAN/LAN port, 1 * Gigabit WAN port, and 4 * Gigabit LAN/WAN ports to ensure fast and reliable connectivity options.

2. New Features

 

The ER706W-4G V1 offers several impressive features compared to traditional Omada wired routers.

 

(1) 4G LTE Network

 

The ER706W-4G V1 supports the 3/4G LTE network, eliminating the need for a separate 4G LTE modem. This allows for a more flexible network connection.

For its supported LTE band list, please refer to the Specifications on the official website.

 

 

(2) EAP Mesh.

 

With EAP Mesh support, the ER706W-4G V1 enables easy formation of your network while reducing costs. You can now create an EAP mesh with this standalone ER706W-4G. 

(Note: The Guest Network option and SSID VLAN option will disappear from the Web UI or Omada APP once the mesh network is in standalone mode.)

 

 

 

(3) Omada App

 

ER706W-4G V1 supports Omada app. You can view the settings or monitor the network traffic from a remote location. Always stay connected and updated.

(Note: In standalone mode, the ER706W-4G can only be managed by Omada APP or Web UI at a time.)

 

 

(4) SMS

 

It supports SMS in standalone mode to allow you to receive or send text messages.

 

 

 

(5) IPsec/SSL/WireGuard/OpenVPN/L2TP VPN.

 

This model supports many different types of VPN protocols. An improvement in the VPN throughput will help you deploy your VPN connection more flexibly.

 

 

3. Application Scenarios

 

  • Used in conjunction with a 4G LTE SIM card, it can support a more flexible connection type than the traditional land line. For those who would like to use a 4G LTE as the backup WAN, ER706W-4G provides a very good solution.

 

  • Ensure the security of data transmission between multiple sites. One-click auto IPSec VPN greatly simplifies VPN configuration and facilitates network management and deployment. It also secures and encrypts private site-to-site data communications traveling over the internet.

 

 

  • The ER706W-4G V1 offers powerful wireless settings that allow network administrators to customize the wireless setup to meet their specific needs. With these settings, admins can easily manage the wireless network, including configuring the SSID, password, and other parameters to ensure a secure and efficient wireless connection. Additionally, the EAP Mesh feature enables easy formation of the network and reduces costs, making it an ideal solution for businesses of small and middle size.

 

 

  • SSL VPN is a VPN remote access technology based on the SSL protocol. Using SSL VPN, mobile office workers can securely and conveniently access the corporate intranet, access corporate intranet resources, and improve work efficiency.

 

 

4. Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q1: What's the WIFI coverage of ER706W-4G?

 

The coverage and performance of wireless products are influenced by the environment. In the different user environments with different housing structures, more or less wireless interference and different receiving performance of the client, so, even with the same product, the performance also varies.  A general range is about 15 meters.

 

Q2:  What is the maximum number of connected clients and the number of recommended clients?

 

Recommend Number of total wireless and wired clients: 300.

2.4G Max Number of concurrent clients 128, Recommend Number of clients 25.

5G Max Number of concurrent clients 128, Recommend Number of clients 50.

(The above data is based on the lab test for the recommended clients and may vary in your environment.)

 

Q3:  Can customers replace the LTE antenna by themselves?

 

Yes, the Antenna Ports on ER706W-4G are SMA females.

  @Clive_A Nice looking total package router there.  Ashame  I just bought a ER707-M2...  I kept a Telstra modem as a 4G backup addon for it, I would have bought this new unit had it been available for simplicity.  Probably not as powerful as the ER707?  TPLink really need to release CPU/RAM specs for their gear.

Hi @MrHC1983 

Thanks for posting in our business forum.

If the CPU and RAM would be open to the public, you should find them in the datasheet. If the datasheet and specs did not mention the CPU and RMA, then it is the case where we don't leak this information.

I see ER706W-4G shares its info in the data sheet. Omada 4G+Cat6 AX3000 Gigabit VPN Router
