Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. MultiModem rCell User Guide
Chapter 1 – Product Overview
This User Guide describes the MultiModem® rCell intelligent wireless routers with an Ethernet II interface. You
can configure the MultiModem rCell Router for one of three connectivity modes: always-on, wake-up on ring, or
dial-on demand.
The always-on network connection automatically establishes a wireless data connection and allows for around the
clock surveillance, monitoring or real time data acquisition of any remote Ethernet device such as a Web camera.
If the data link is dropped due to poor reception or a complete loss of service, this feature automatically reestablishes the data link.
The wake-up on ring configuration allows the router to “wake up” and initiate a connection when it detects an
incoming ring. For security reasons, you can setup the router to wake up based on a particular caller ID number.
This configuration is ideal for reducing the costs associated with the modem being online and available 24/7.
When configured for dial-on demand, the router only accesses the Internet when data is present. This
configuration is ideal for sharing Internet access among networked computers.

Safety Warnings
Ethernet Ports Caution
The Ethernet ports are not designed to be connected to a Public Telecommunication Network or used outside the
building.
Handling Precautions
All devices must be handled with certain precautions to avoid damage due to the accumulation of static charge.
Although input protection circuitry has been incorporated into the devices to minimize the effect of this static
build up, proper precautions should be taken to avoid exposure to electrostatic discharge during handling and
mounting.
Caution: Maintain a separation distance of at least 20 cm (8 inches) between the transmitter’s antenna and the
body of the user or nearby persons. The router is not designed for, nor intended to be, used in applications within
20 cm (8 inches) of the body of the user.
RF Interference Issues
It is important to follow any special regulations regarding the use of radio equipment due in particular to the possibility of
radio frequency, RF, interference. Please follow this safety advice:
●
Switch OFF your Wireless MultiModem when in an aircraft. The use of cellular telephones in an aircraft may
endanger the operation of the aircraft, disrupt the cellular network and is illegal. Failure to observe this
instruction may lead to suspension or denial of cellular telephone services to the offender, or legal action or
both.
●
Switch OFF your Wireless MultiModem when around gasoline or diesel-fuel pumps and before filling your
vehicle with fuel.
●
Switch OFF your Wireless MultiModem in hospitals and any other place where medical equipment may be in
use.
●
Respect restrictions on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots, chemical plants or where blasting
operations are in progress.
●
There may be a hazard associated with the operation of your Wireless MultiModem close to inadequately
protected personal medical devices such as hearing aids and pacemakers. Consult the manufacturers of the
medical device to determine if it is adequately protected.
●
Operation of your Wireless MultiModem close to other electronic equipment may also cause interference if
the equipment is inadequately protected. Observe any warning signs and manufacturers’ recommendations.
Vehicle Safety
●
Do not use your Router while driving, unless equipped with a correctly installed vehicle kit allowing ‘HandsFree’ Operation.
●
Respect national regulations on the use of cellular telephones in vehicles. Road safety always comes first.
●
If incorrectly installed in a vehicle, the operation of router telephone could interfere with the correct
functioning of vehicle electronics. To avoid such problems, be sure that qualified personnel have performed
the installation. Verification of the protection of vehicle electronics should be part of the installation.
●
The use of an alert device to operate a vehicle’s lights or horn on public roads is not permitted.

Antenna System for Cellular Devices
The cellular/wireless performance depends on the implementation and antenna design. The integration of the
antenna system into the product is a critical part of the design process; therefore, it is essential to consider it early
so the performance is not compromised. If changes are made to the certified antenna system of the MultiModem,
then recertification is required by specific network carriers such as Sprint. The Antenna System is defined as the
UFL connection point from the MultiModem to the specified cable specifications and specified antenna
specifications.
PTCRB Requirements for the Antenna
There cannot be any alteration to the authorized antenna system. The antenna system must maintain the same
specifications. The antenna must be the same type, with similar in-band and out-of-band radiation patterns.
FCC Requirements for the Antenna
The antenna gain, including cable loss, for the radio you are incorporating into your product design must not
exceed the requirements at 850 MHz and 1900 MHz as specified by the FCC grant for mobile operations and fixed
mounted operations as defined in 2.1091 and 1.1307 of the FCC rules for satisfying RF exposure compliance. The
antenna used for transmitting must be installed to provide a separation distance of at least 20cm from all persons
and must not transmit simultaneously with any other antenna transmitters. User and installers must be provided
with antenna installation instructions and transmitter operating conditions to satisfying RF exposure compliance.

PPP, PPP Configuration Parameters
NAT Configuration Group
NAT: Enable or disable NAT (Network Address Translation). The default is Enable.
Note: For routing to take effect, enable then save the configuration.
Enabling NAT
Your LAN can use one set of IP addresses for internal traffic and a second set of addresses for external traffic. The
router with NAT does the simple IP routing between the LAN interface and the WAN interface. NAT hides the LAN
address behind a single IP address on the wireless side.
Your internal addresses are shielded from the public Internet.

Chapter 3 – Using the Web Management Software
Disabling NAT
The router functions without performing any address translation on the packets passing through it.
Masquerading of packets originating from the LAN is disabled.
Address translation of packets arriving from the WAN is also disabled.
Any DNAT Configuration previously setup in the DNAT Configuration screen is disabled. This prevents the user
from adding any DNAT rules, which if allowed defeat the purpose of enabling Routing.
PPP General Group
PPP: Enable or disable PPP. The default is Disable. When enabled, the unit functions as a router. PPP must be
disabled to access the integrated cellular modem directly using telnet port 5000. If PPP is enabled, you cannot
access the integrated cellular modem.
Dial-on-Demand: Enable or disable Dial-on-Demand. The default is Disable. If you disable it, the router always
stays connected unless the Idle Time Out expires. When Dial-on-Demand is enabled, use the ‘Wakeup on Call’
settings under the PPP menu to configure the settings for re-establishment of the connection.
Idle Time Out: Set the amount of idle time that passes before the router timeouts. The default is 180 seconds. If
the time expires, the PPP connection to the Internet disconnects. Any IP packets from the LAN side or IP traffic
from the wireless side resets this timer and prevents the connection from dropping.
Connect Time Out: Set the number of seconds to wait for a connection while in receive mode before timing out.
Dialing Max Retries: Enter the number of dialing retries allowed. The default is zero, which means an infinite
number is allowed. Range 0 to 100.

PPP, Wakeup-on-Call Parameters
The Wakeup-on-Call feature allows the router to wake up and initiate a connection when there is an incoming call
or LAN activity. . The Wakeup-on-Call feature reduces the cost incurred when a router is online and available 24/7.
If you desire some security with this feature, you can set up the router to wake up based on Caller ID or SMS
instead of allowing all incoming calls to wake up the router. Dial-on-Demand in the IP Setup menu must be
enabled for wakeup-on-call features to go into effect.
Note: When provisioning this feature, you must allow incoming calls, SMS capability, and caller-id.
Wakeup-on-Call Configuration Group
Wakeup on Call: Enable or disable the Wakeup-on-Call feature. The default is Disable. Wakeup on Call occurs
when a ring or caller ID is detected. This triggers the router to reconnect after the ‘Time Delay’ expires.
Time Delay: Enter the amount of time that you want to pass between the reception of a call and the initiation of
the Wakeup-on-Call connection. A time delay is needed to make sure that the incoming call has ended before the
connection is initiated. The default is 10 seconds.
Dial-on-Demand from LAN: The default is disable. When enabled, the router reconnects when it sees IP traffic on
the LAN is needed to route. If this feature is disabled, Dial-on-Demand initiates a PPP connection to the Internet
only from the WAN, not from the LAN.

security gateway. Up to three tunnels can be active at any given time. You can save more than three active
tunnels, but they are not active.
IPSec provides encryption and authentication services at the IP level of the protocol stack. IPSec can protect any
traffic carried over IP.
Authentication and Encryption Overview
IPSec provides the following services:
●
Authentication only
●
Encryption only
To transmit and receive data securely over an unprotected network:
1.
Select the type of IPSec service—authentication or encryption—required for the connection.
2.
Establish a secure connection by a key exchange process, using one of the following:
3.
●

Appendix C – Environmental
Information
July, 2005
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
The WEEE directive places an obligation on EU-based manufacturers, distributors, retailers and importers to take-back
electronics products at the end of their useful life. A sister Directive, ROHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)
complements the WEEE Directive by banning the presence of specific hazardous substances in the products at the design
phase. The WEEE Directive covers all Multi-Tech products imported into the EU as of August 13, 2005. EU-based
manufacturers, distributors, retailers and importers are obliged to finance the costs of recovery from municipal collection
points, reuse, and recycling of specified percentages per the WEEE requirements.
Instructions for Disposal of WEEE by Users in the European Union
The symbol shown below is on the product or on its packaging, which indicates that this product must not be disposed of
with other waste. Instead, it is the user’s responsibility to dispose of their waste equipment by handing it over to a
designated collection point for the recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment. The separate collection and
recycling of your waste equipment at the time of disposal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that it is
recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. For more information about where you can drop off
your waste equipment for recycling, please contact your local city office, your household waste disposal service or where you
purchased the product.
REACH Statement
Registration of Substances:
After careful review of the legislation and specifically the definition of an “article” as defined in EC Regulation 1907/2006,
Title II, Chapter 1, Article 7.1(a)(b), it is our current view Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. products would be considered as “articles”.
In light of the definition in § 7.1(b) which requires registration of an article only if it contains a regulated substance that “is
intended to be released under normal or reasonable foreseeable conditions of use,” our analysis is that Multi-Tech Systems,
Inc. products constitute nonregisterable articles for their intended and anticipated use.
Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC):
Per the candidate list of Substances of Very high Concern (SVHC) published October 28, 2008 we have reviewed these
substances and certify the Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. products are compliant per the EU “REACH” requirements of less than
0.1% (w/w) for each substance.
If new SVHC candidates are published by the European Chemicals Agency, and relevant substances have been confirmed, that
exceeds greater than 0.1% (w/w), Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. will provide updated compliance status.
Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. also declares it has been duly diligent in ensuring that the products supplied are compliant through a
formalized process which includes collection and validation of materials declarations and selective materials analysis where
appropriate. This data is controlled as a part of a formal quality system and will be made available upon request.
