At times, you need the finest and most cost-effective wired network connectivity. At other times, strong wireless mobile and Wi-Fi signals are essential. While the specific preferences or requirements may differ for IoT solutions, one thing is certain: we’ll have your network infrastructure equipped with the most suitable option there is.

With this in mind, today we’ll introduce you to the new RUT301 Ethernet router and RUT361 cellular router, catered for wired and wireless IIoT connectivity solutions!


The RUT301 Ethernet router is not only great at performance but also offers the best value for your money. This device seamlessly connects industrial machinery in manufacturing plants, automation systems, and much more while being one of the most affordable connectivity devices in Teltonika Networks product portfolio.


This Ethernet router is equipped with five Ethernet ports, two digital I/Os, and a USB 2.0 port to broaden the device’s applicability and connect just the right number of end devices you actually need. It’s a great choice for solutions that don’t need Wi-Fi or high data speeds, but prioritise network reliability and stability. This means that the RUT301 Ethernet router is also great for applications in the enterprise, retail, and hospitality sectors.

This router is great, particularly when evaluating its security capabilities. The RUT301 is equipped with a pre-configured firewall, providing immediate secure network support. Additionally, it offers the option to further enhance security through multiple VPNs, such as OpenVPN or IPsec, facilitating the creation of a secure and private connection.


Now, if your solution does need Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity, the RUT361 is the way to go. This device excels in scenarios demanding enhanced flexibility and scalability, or when providing connectivity support for IoT solutions in challenging environments is essential. This also makes the RUT361 ideal for both stationary and mobile use cases.


The RUT361 cellular router equips your network infrastructure with robust wireless signal thanks to its LTE Cat 6 and carrier aggregation support, enabling the device to reach speeds of up to 300 Mbps. Besides that, the device can act as an access point or perform automatic WAN switching from one Internet source to another via failover, depending on your configuration.

With all these goodies on the cellular router’s side, the RUT361 can effortlessly connect industrial machinery in multiple scenarios and ensure each of them obtains network connectivity. The standout feature is the router’s compatibility with a wide range of industrial communication protocols. This underscores the elegance of enabling easy M2M communication and eliminating the need for extra data converters or other equipment.

The RUT361 cellular router has more WAN options and higher data throughput over LTE than the RUT301, which makes this router more data capable. Such a device is a better fit for applications requiring high-speed Internet access, such as remote industrial automation, CCTV, and mobile Wi-Fi hotspots.


While there’s no denying that the RUT301 Ethernet router and the RUT361 cellular router differ in their capabilities and applications, there are also many aspects uniting the two. The first and foremost is, of course, our own in-house device software, RutOS, which is based on OpenWRT.

RutOS is like a digital bridge for secure networks, connecting our physical networking devices to the virtual expanse of their features and capabilities. For the RUT301 and RUT361, RutOS empowers you to perform tons of configuration to tailor the routers and optimise their performance to your requirements. So, remember the OpenVPN and IPsec VPNs or additional firewalls for your secure connections? RutOS is what you use to enable them.

If you want to perform configuration or check up on your IoT solutions, but remotely, meet the Teltonika Networks Remote Management System – RMS! With this IoT platform and its services, like RMS Management, Connect, and VPN, you can obtain full access not only to the RUT301 and RUT361 but also to third-party devices connected to these routers.

Remote management and control, along with connection to other devices through encrypted tunnels, offer robust network protection as well as great convenience and simplicity in managing your IoT solutions. RMS provides the necessary tools and automatically handles the configuration or establishment of VPN connections for you.


The RUT301 Ethernet router and the RUT361 cellular router are built to be tough. The black, industrial-grade aluminium housing of these routers allows them to withstand extreme environments and temperatures from -40 °C to 75 °C.

On top of that, the RUT301 and the RUT361 are identical in their dimensions (100 x 30 x 85 mm). Such a small size enables you to easily place both devices into any server cabinet or drawer with ease.
