I have active deployments of a Mikrotik RB2011 and the Vodafone R205
hotspot, This allows you to have the 3g modem in a more suitable position
and have a unit in the rack. Big bonus is onsite tech's can get net access

We have a bunch of regional sites (weather probes) that run some
equipment, 2 PCs and are connected to the internet.
At the moment it's dongle city which I would like to change over to
something a little better :)
I am looking for suggestions on a decent (business grade) router with 3G
capability an external antenna connection.
At each site, the equipment sits in a rack, inside a hut and signal
strength is reasonable (3/5).
My thinking is to deploy a basic Cisco router with a 3G WIC then an
external antenna on the same mast where we collect weather data.
Happy to hear suggestions and input.
