USB modem backhaul - for RAPS only or IAPs too?

I'm trying to determine if USB cellular modem backhaul is only available in RAP models or IAPs as well. I'm looking to offer a standalone AP that would work "in a field" away from ethernet connectivity, so USB modem backhaul is a must. Can someone please confirm?


I found a link that suggests IAPs support USB backhaul but the AP specifications page don't include that info.




Also, can someone confirm if this is the most updated list of compatible "True Auto Detect" USB modems?

Yes you can!

Recommended modem for Verizon is the Novatel U620L

Booya! Thanks Tim for confirming IAP works with USB backhaul. I actually had the U620L in my sites but it's not listed on the "Uplink Configuration" URL I sent out so needed confirmation.
