NetComm Wireless has expanded its wireless machine to machine / Industrial Internet of Things portfolio, with the launch of a new 4G LTE Cat 6 Industrial IoT router with Dual Band WiFi (NTC-400) and cloud based Remote Device Manager (RDM) platform for applications that require high speed real time connectivity.
The firm said the NTC-400 series was specially engineered to connect and manage some of the most bandwidth intensive industrial and in-vehicle IIoT applications, such as large-scale fleet tracking, surveillance and 4K/UHD digital displays.
NetComm Wireless added that it launched its fully featured RDM in conjunction with the NTC-400 to speed up time-to-market, deliver new revenue generating services and bring down the total cost of ownership.
According to the firm, the RDM enables the secure upgrade of firmware and applications to individual, groups or large-scale fleets of devices – allowing for extensive management, service provisioning, monitoring and data collection. "It supports TR-069 and OMA LWM2M standards, and enables real time monitoring, analytics, comprehensive reporting on failed connections and tasks, profile updates and inventory reports," NetComm said.
"Industrial applications are often mission critical, so failure is not an option," the company continued. "The NTC-400 Series is engineered to increase operational efficiencies and reduce some of the costly environmental and downtime risks that industrial IoT sectors deal with."
"NetComm Wireless has long been at the forefront of IIoT / M2M advances and it is pleasing to see how our new innovations translate into real world outcomes," said NetComm Wireless chief operating officer Timo Brouwer.
"The ATMs, vending machines and other pre-Internet industrial and commercial equipment that once used our dial-up modems to access small amounts of data can now stream the highest resolution video in real time, anywhere in the world," he said.
"And our cloud based remote device management platform adds another level of efficiency with live visibility and smart network management at scale."
