With Your Remote Sites In Mind

Rugged Design

The rugged design of the DC powered model makes AERO the perfect solution.

Use it for remote telecom and telemetry based applications. It’s ultra wide +/-20 to +/-60V DC power input range works with all backup battery systems.

Protect mission critical back-hauls, mobile hot spots, remote Internet access and cloud-based applications. Simple and cost effective.

Getting AERO Up And Running

Not Rocket Science

AERO simplifies connecting a remote site to the corporate network. It reduces the required steps to a minimum. Connecting far flung sites splits into two parts: a server part, and a client part.

AERO Server

The AERO server installs as software running on a PC, VM or container on the corporate network side. This instance runs behind a firewall. It either has a direct connection to the cellular/mobile network or through the Internet.

AERO Client

The AERO client is a physical device which installs at one or more remote locations. A cellular USB modem establishes a link to the mobile network/Internet. Ultimately, this link terminates at the corporate network.
With both parts up and running, the AERO client establishes a VPN tunnel. This tunnel over the mobile grid bridges the remote to the corporate network. The bridge established by the AERO operates at the link layer – forwarding all traffic.
This allows devices in the corporate network and the remote sites to talk to each other. No need to change the routing or configuration setup.


Build Your Mobile Access Network

Access All Your Sites

AERO offers a clean and easy path to connect all your remote sites.

Build the network you need. Quickly and efficiently. It works with your local mobile technology.

And it offers secure access to even the most remote location. Get robust operation. Especially with less than stellar cellular performance.

Optima offers end-to-end solutions to integrate all your networks. Launch with a handful of remote sites, then keep on growing.

AERO. Ready for the future.
