Overview & Features

WiMAX communication devices and CDMA modules ― High-speed, secure mobile service with Closed Remote Gateway

"Closed Remote Gateway" is a high-security, remote access service provided through a non-Internet based direct connection using KDDI data lines IP-VPN and WVS [2] with au packet communication service (Packet WIN) and WiMAX communication that boasts of up to 40Mbps of downlink speed [1].

  • [1]
    From Spring 2015, areas with a maximum downlink speed of 13.3 Mbps will be gradually replaced.
    This is a best-effort service. Note that the listed speed is not the actual communication speed, but the maximum value based on the technical standards. The actual speed may fall substantially short of the maximum for various reasons, including the customer's communication environment and network traffic conditions.

Six reasons for using the "Closed Remote Gateway"

  1. Reason 1High-security network ― Customers and KDDI center connected with fixed networks

    Customer offices are connected to a KDDI center by a fixed network. This structure offers a high-security communication environment.

  2. Reason 2WiMAX communication charges are available at packed-based flat rates ― Useful for monthly budget management

    Two flat rate courses are available: A two-step flat rate starting with a monthly charge of ¥362 (up to ¥4,743) and an all-you-can-use flat rate for a monthly ¥4,267.

    • Charges include consumption taxes.
  3. Reason 3Communication is charged by packet ― No worries about the connection time

    au packet communication charge is charged by the transmitted and received data volume (packets). Use data communication without worrying about connection time.
    Packet-based flat rates and discount services are also available.

  4. Reason 4 High-speed, large-capacity mobile data communication environment provided based on WiMAX communication ― A stress-free speed of 40 Mbps max downlink speed [3]

    A downlink speed of up to 40 Mbps [3] is realized with the use of "WiMAX", a best-effort, high-speed mobile communication, for your stress-free data communication.

      From Spring 2015, areas with a maximum downlink speed of 13.3 Mbps will be gradually replaced.
    • This is a best-effort service. Note that the listed speed is not the actual communication speed, but the maximum value based on the technical standards. The actual speed may fall substantially short of the maximum for various reasons, including the customer's communication environment and network traffic conditions.
    • The service area of WiMAX connection is planned for future expansion.
  5. Reason 5 Extensive service area

    Like au voice calls, the service area of CDMA module connections cover the whole of Japan.

  6. Reason 6One contract with the Closed Remote Gateway provides for both WiMAX connection and CDMA module connection

    Although both types of connections are available, you may also select either of the two connection types.
