Highlights of the Aterm MR04LN

Compatible with LTE-Advanced and quad-band LTE

The Aterm MR04LN is an LTE-Advanced-compatible Wi-Fi router that provides high-speed transmissions by using carrier aggregation.(*) The device also supports quad-band LTE (2GHz, 1.7GHz, 1.5GHz, and 800MHz), delivering stable LTE communications throughout a wide area.

Capable of Bluetooth tethering that lasts a long time between charges

In addition to wireless LAN and USB connections, the router supports low-power Bluetooth tethering that delivers around 24 hours of continuous transmissions on a single battery charge.

SIM-lock free and dual-SIM capable

The router comes equipped with slots for two SIM cards, making it dual-SIM capable. Customers can switch between two communications services-for example, a work service and a personal service-as required, without needing to physically swap SIM cards.

IIJ will offer the router for use in IIJ Mobile Service/Type D (fixed fee plan L and three-tier pricing plan L) and Type DS (fixed fee plan L), both of which use NTT DOCOMO's LTE/3G network. IIJ also plans to offer the device for accessing its Type K service, which uses KDDI au's 4G LTE network, with a target release date in October 2015.

IIJ will continue to expand and enhance its lineup of services to offer its customers even greater levels of convenience.
