Considering the teritary goal of this group:
>>>"Tertiary goal: High speed IP for streaming IP video over cellular 3G/4G"
The obvious solution is a device that has features an LTE modem and has both serial (RS232) and Ethernet interfaces (for telemetry and video over IP) -- These a mostly industrial devices at massive cost.
Such devices may include the FatBox HSUPA --- Which is now out of production; 450g stock; ~USD500
Or the IPn4Gb --- Still ultra expensive
What I am hoping may work is a consumer product --- An ethernet to LTE modem --- Smaller; cheaper
Such devices may include:
IP video will work well but the obvious problem is that there is no serial interface for telemetry from the APM/Pixhawk!
My question thus is whether it would be possible (and simple) to add some hardware that will allow for serial over ethernet over LTE?
The serial over ethernet devices I have seen seem to require running virtual com port software on a PC in order to extract the serial signal. I seek a simple solution in which full duplex serial communication can take place over ethernet running over LTE.
Many many thanks in advance. This could be much fun indeed! :)
