Verizon 4G LTE Doesn't Work for Remote Applications


Update (1/29/2016): Verizon offers static IPs on 4G LTE for a $500 one time fee. For more details visit this article - Verizon 4G LTE Static IP Setup
Verizon has officially launched their new VZ4G LTE network and despite a few bugs the service has been pretty impressive so far. However, we've found a major problem that could be a deal breaker IF you require a router to run remote-based applications. No matter the Verizon device you purchase (USB aircard or Jetpack), they will run a privately routed IP (10.) address that ONLY allows outbound traffic - no inbound traffic can be passed through. This means that if you have a need for remote access to a device, Verizon's new 3G/4G-capable devices will not allow you to access them without paying for a static IP address.

Inbound Traffic Examples:
  • M2M (Machine to Machine)
  • SlingBox (Dish Network/Direct TV)
  • Remote IP Camera applications
  • Access to off site server
  • DVR (Digital Video Recording)
  • Security Systems
  • FTP/SSH Servers
  • Screen Share Applications (Examples VNC, PC Anywhere)
  • Microsoft RDP (Remote Desktop)
  • VPN (running VPN server)
If you have any need for any of the above examples, you MUST pay for a static IP address. We have tried to test the Pantech UML290 (among other devices) with a SlingBox and Aztec Camera system and it WILL NOT pass inbound traffic or allow for any type of port forwarding.
