CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION
Introduction to your Router
The MX-1000 Advanced Industrial 4G/LTE Wireless VPN Router is a high-performance all-in-one
wireless communications platform with advanced software enabling high availability, reliable and
secure connectivity for mission critical applications. The MX-1000 is specifically designed to provide
outstanding network efficiency and internet security for a wide range of applications and vertical
machine-to-machine (M2M) market segments. It features a rugged, compact design with integrated
dual 4G/LTE WAN ports, 4-port Gigabit Ethernet switch, 802.11n Wi-Fi access point with multiple
SSID supports, and two multi-function USB 2.0 host interfaces for Storage/NAS. Quality of Service
(QoS), SPI firewall, and advanced VPN integration provide security needed to enhance the operations
of Public Safety, Energy Wellhead and Gas Industry, Industrial M2M Segment, PoS/Kiosks/ATM, Fleet
Management, and Smart Transportation/Bus.
Vehicle Tracking System
MX-1000 is embedded with a GNSS receiver for GPS or GLONASS. To co-work with On-Board
Diagnostics(OBD) system, it eases the central control of geographically-dispersed fleets by
presenting individual vehicles' detailed information, including remaining fuel levels, rapid
accelerations, and locations.
4G/LTE Mobility

CHAPTER 3: BASIC INSTALLATION
The router can be configured with your web browser. A web browser is included as a standard
application in the following operating systems: Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8, Linux, Mac OS, etc. The
product provides an easy and user-friendly interface for configuration.
PCs must have an Ethernet interface installed properly and be connected to the router either directly
or through an external repeater hub, and have TCP/IP installed or configured to obtain an IP address
through a DHCP server or a fixed IP address that must be in the same subnet as the router. The
default IP address of the router is 192.168.1.254 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 (i.e. any
attached PC must be in the same subnet, and have an IP address in the range of 192.168.1.1 to
192.168.1.253). The best and easiest way is to configure the PC to get an IP address automatically
from the router using DHCP. If you encounter any problems accessing the router’s web interface it
may also be advisable to uninstall any kind of software firewall on your PCs, as they can cause
problems accessing the 192.168.1.254 IP address of the router. Users should make their own
decisions on how to best protect their network.
Please follow the steps below for your PC’s network environment installation. First of all, please check
your PC’s network components. The TCP/IP protocol stack and Ethernet network adapter must be
installed. If not, please refer to your Windows-related or other operating system manuals.
Any TCP/IP capable workstation can be used to communicate with
or through the MX-1000. To configure other types of workstations,
please consult the manufacturer’s documentation.

The IPv6 address composes of two parts, thus, the prefix and the interface ID.
Interface Address / Prefix Length: Enter a static LAN IPv6 address. If you are not sure what to do
with this field, please leave it empty as if contains false information it could result in LAN devices not
being able to access other IPv6 device. Router will take the same WAN’s prefix to LAN side if the field
is empty.
DHCPv6 Server
There are two methods to dynamically configure IPv6 address on hosts, Stateless and Stateful.
Stateless auto-configuration requires no manual configuration of hosts, minimal (if any)
configuration of routers, and no additional servers. The stateless mechanism allows a host to generate
its own addresses using a combination of locally available information (MAC address) and information
(prefix) advertised by routers. Routers advertise prefixes that identify the subnet(s) associated with a
link, while hosts generate an "interface identifier" that uniquely identifies an interface on a subnet. An
address is formed by combining the two. When using stateless configuration, you needn’t configure
anything on the client.
Stateful configuration, for example using DHCPv6 (which resembles its counterpart DHCP in IPv4.)
In the stateful auto configuration model, hosts obtain interface addresses and/or configuration
information and parameters from a DHCPv6 server. The Server maintains a database that keeps track
of which addresses have been assigned to which hosts.
DHCPv6 Server: Check whether to enable DHCPv6 server.
DHCPv6 Server Type: Select Stateless or Stateful. When DHCPv6 is enabled, this parameter is
available.
 Stateless: If selected, the PCs in LAN are configured through RA mode, thus, the PCs in LAN
are configured through RA mode, to obtain the prefix message and generate an address using a
combination of locally available information (MAC address) and information (prefix) advertised
by routers, but they can obtain such information like DNS from DHCPv6 Server.
BEC MX-1000 User Manual
Device Configuration
Interface Setup – LAN
54
 Stateful: If selected, the PCs in LAN will be configured like in IPv4 mode, thus obtain addresses
and DNS information from DHCPv6 server.
Start interface ID: enter the start interface ID. The IPv6 address composed of two parts, thus, the
prefix and the interface ID. Interface is like the Host ID compared to IPv4.
End interface ID: enter the end interface ID.
Leased Time (seconds): the leased time, similar to leased time in DHCPv4, is a time limit assigned to
clients, when expires, the assigned ID will be recycled and reassigned.
Router Advertisement: Check to Enable or Disable the Issue Router Advertisement feature. This
feature is to send Router Advertisement messages periodically which would multicast the IPv6 Prefix
information (similar to v4 network number 192.168.1.0) to all LAN devices if the field is enabled. We
suggest enabling this field.

Using port forwarding does have security implications, as outside users will
be able to connect to PCs on your network. For this reason you are advised
to use specific Virtual Server entries just for the ports your application
requires, instead of using DMZ. As doing so will result in all connections from
the WAN attempt to access to your public IP of the DMZ PC specified .
If you have disabled the NAT option in the WAN-ISP section, the Virtual
Server function will hence be invalid.
Attention
If the DHCP server option is enabled, you have to be very careful in
assigning the IP addresses of the virtual servers in order to avoid conflicts.
The easiest way of configuring Virtual Servers is to manually assign static IP
address to each virtual server PC, with an address that does not fall into the
range of IP addresses that are to be issued by the DHCP server. You can
configure the virtual server IP address manually, but it must still be in the
same subnet as the router.

protocol for remote management of end-user devices. It defines an application layer protocol for
remote management of end-user devices.
As a bidirectional SOAP/HTTP based protocol it can provides the communication between customer
premises equipment (CPE) and Auto Configuration Server (ACS). It includes both a safe configuration
and the control of other CPE management functions within an integrated framework. In the course of
the booming broadband market, the number of different internet access possibilities grew as well (e.g.
modems, routers, gateways, set-top box, VoIP-phones).At the same time the configuration of this
equipment became more complicated –too complicated for end-users. For this reason, TR-069 was
developed. It provides the possibility of auto configuration of the access types. Using TR-069 the
