Remote outdoor router

(also ROR)

Remote outdoor router definition

A remote outdoor router (ROR) is a router designed to be placed outdoors. Its purpose is to connect to another ROR or a COR (central outdoor router) and extend Wi-Fi networks to cover large, remote areas.

A ROR can connect to one other ROR or COR at the same time. This distinguishes it from CORs, which can connect to multiple RORs, providing them with network access.

The use of a remote outdoor router

The purpose of remote outdoor routers is to extend the reach of WLAN (wireless LAN, commonly known as Wi-Fi) networks. RORs can be used by companies and individual customers who, for example, want to extend the reach of their home network to an outdoor area.

Remote outdoor routers are usually more expensive than standard routers designed for indoor use because they are designed to function in an outdoor environment. While a standard router cannot withstand rain, wind, and dust, RORs are produced with these conditions in mind.

Remote outdoor router examples

RORs are most often used by organizations that need to extend their WLAN networks to outdoor areas, for example:

  • Schools
  • University and college campuses
  • Shopping malls
  • Amusement parks
  • Hotels
