The MX Security Appliances and the Z1 Teleworker Gateway both support a Cellular WAN connection. This allows the devices to be used in situations in which there may not be a convenient or steady wired connection, or as a failover in case of emergency. Information on model compatibility and details on this feature can be found here for an MX Security Appliance, or here for a Z1 Teleworker Gateway. When monitoring the cellular connection, there are details in the connection events that may help explain what is happening.

These cellular events include:

 

  • Cellular Connection Up
  • Cellular Connection Down
