What Our Customers Are Saying

  • " much faster than our old router - thank you!"
  • "We switched from your competition and are so much happier with your X1 Pro"
  • "I love the X1 Pro... I put it in bridge mode and run all my cameras off of it"
  • "...switched from DSL which was maybe 10Mbps down and less than 1 up... on the X1 Pro we get 240Mbps down 45Mbps up - Wow!!!"
  • "without any configuration in an area with 2 bars of mobile signal I was getting average speeds of about 35Mbs, maxing out around 60Mbs and the worst about 9Mbs.  After installing the Antenna I have an average speed above 130Mbswith a peak so far of 196Mbs and the worst performance being around 60Mbs. The connection is stable and I finally feel like have decent internet again."
  • "...unlike the others, your X1 has a very smooth and responsive user interface"
  • "...yours [Telco X1 Pro] was the only one that worked, the others didn't. I threw the other modems in the bin"
  • "I am up to 12 km from the Optus tower... On a clear day I can just see it. I tried the WIFI router [X1 Pro] just out of the box and it seemed to have reasonably good performance. I then installed the antenna... The system is amazing I get 50 Mbs on download and about 30 Mbs on upload. Seems to work really well in all conditions. It actually works better than my broadband in Canberra. I have used it mainly for video conferencing and streamed a few things and the speeds are amazing."
  • "Your X1 has been great...worth every penny!"

Two devices in one

The X1 Pro combines a modem and a router in the one unit – each complete a specific task to provide LAN, WiFi and 4G wireless connectivity. The modem connects you to the Internet, while the router connects your devices to WiFi and Ethernet.

The Telco X1 Pro covers Telstra 4GXOptus 4G+, and Vodafone/TPG Mobile 4G networks with 3G fallback.


Not your average modem/router

While there are lots of combination modem/routers on the market, with varying degrees of efficiency and user experience, there are few, if any, that reliably provide full 600Mbps CAT12 MIMO LTE-A Pro access for 100+ users, and feature powerful dual band Wave-2 WiFi, enough gigabit ethernet ports to service a small office and a compact, rugged form factor complete with a multitude of mounting options.  For those who are keen, you can even run your own custom applications on it, as there is processing power to spare thanks to the premium Qualcomm quad core ARM processor.

Running the acclaimed TelcOS Melaleuca, our operating system noted for it's ease of setup, ease of use and rock solid reliability, and based on OpenWrt*/Linux*, the Telco X1 Pro delivers everything you need to get up and running with an ultra high speed, ultra reliable data connection quickly, easily, and securely.



Extend your range

The Telco X1 Pro is especially well suited for areas with poor signal, as the ultra sensitive modem is able to process weak signals much more effectively than lower category modems, maximising the signal at hand and delivering higher data speeds.


A rugged, performant, and reliable industrial modem router, the Telco X1 Pro is constructed from metal, and the circuit board has been designed from the ground up by Telco Antennas to meet Australia's roughest conditions head-on. Telco X1 Pro can be deployed anywhere: featuring DIN rail mount compatibility, backplate mount compatibility, and desktop installation options. 



When you have the need for speed

The X1 Pro is a CAT12 LTE Advanced Pro modem, providing superior high speed mobile data rates up to 600Mbps down 150Mbps up – this means you can live stream content uninterrupted, download large files quickly, provide fast, reliable internet service to multiple users, upload your HD videos in a flash,  make WiFi calls or play your favorite games in ultra low latency!


Made for Australia

We have been helping Australians solve their mobile connectivity issues for over a decade, so we understand what it takes to achieve the best possible performance.  That is why we designed the X1 Pro to give you a complete set of easy to use settings and installation options to optimise your connection - going well beyond what the ISP provided or standard consumer grade equipment offers.  For starters, you can use the Band Locking setting to lock the X1 Pro to the best frequency bands in your area.  You can also connect any MIMO antenna to the X1 Pro for those especially hard to service areas, allowing high speed internet access anywhere in Australia.  Need advice for picking an antenna?  Just drop us a line, we're happy to help.

Detailed Example Use Cases


Mine sites

There’s no denying that happy workers are productive workers, and nothing makes workers happier than staying connected to the outside world. The X1 Pro allows you to extend reliable internet service beyond the limit of most other routers, and is an affordable and reliable solution to WiFi accessibility in rural and remote locations with poor 3G and 4G signal.


Resturaunts and Hospitality

When you need to process payments, provide guest entertainment and ensure the back of house office has reliable internet access, there's no room for downtime.  You need a router that will be able to provide a secure, extra low latency, extra high speed connection that your business can thrive on.  The X1 Pro functions perfectly as a primary internet connection where DSL, cable or NBN are slow or out of reach, or as an on-standby backup connection to land line services.


Home Office or Branch Office

The X1 Pro is designed to provide a reliable and ultra high speed Internet connection for locations where NBN is out of reach or not meeting business requirements.  The powerful WiFi is strong enough to service a home or small office with up to 100 users and approximately 275 square meters indoors.  The X1 Pro also supports a number of VPN technologies so you can reach office resources such as file shares, remote desktops and printers.  Our Telco Cloud Management System gives ICT administrators the ability to monitor and manage X1 Pro's wherever they are, ensuring security, performance and quick deployment.

Optus is not allowing third party devices to access their Fixed Wireless network which uses the APN LTEBROADBAND.  Only Optus branded devices can access the LTEBROADBAND network.  Unfortunately this means you cannot use a Telco X1 Pro to access this closed network.  The Optus Mobile Data network, however, does allow third party devices, so the Telco X1 Pro can be used on that network.  For details please see the Optus Critical Information Summary under Equipment Needs.
