Digi International Inc. makes a line of routers called the Digi Transport that have 2g/3g/4g/lte options. They aren't really positioned for home users, they are a bit high end/commercial/industrial. You can find them via google or here's a link to the Digi store.

+ - Corporate Open Source Policy?

Historically at my engineering firm, we've followed the model that we internally build a 1.0 release of something we want to open source, then the product owner & legal do a deep review of the release, then we push it out to a platform like github where it typically sits and rusts.
Our engineering interns have started down a new paradigm; starting out on github from the beginning (I set the repo private) and after they have a bare minimum done, flip the repo public and continue to develop it out on github, in full public view. How do PO & Legal reviews fit in? How can we ensure we're not exposing ourselves or diluting our IP if we're doing semi-constant development, publicly, sans a heavily gated review process? What does everyone else do? Or does corporate America avoid this entire opportunity/entanglement/briar patch?

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
