A stable Internet connection is often a rarity in rural areas. The BRCK router aims to solve this by acting as your backup generator for the Internet. The rugged little device maintains connectivity by connecting to Ethernet, Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G while switching between them in case one source fails.

Designed in Africa, the BRCK was constructed to deal with the frequently intermittent Internet in that area. With shaky infrastructure, Internet intensive activities are often a challenge. In addition, power is also an issue. That's why the BRCK has an eight hour battery that kicks in after electricity is cut off.

The BRCK includes a cloud-based program that lets you operate the router from any location. In addition, the program includes a dashboard with network and power performance metrics.
