The new IIoT router runs on Linux-based NetComm operating system (OS), which enables system integrators and solution architects to develop their own applications
NetComm, a leading developer of custom, network-grade telecom equipment, has expanded its portfolio of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) with the introduction of new 4G LTE Category 1 Industrial IoT Router – NTC-220. The router is designed to deliver secure and reliable medium bandwidth connectivity by using commonly available long-term evolution (LTE) networks.
The medium bandwidth connectivity through the new IIoT router will enable rapid implementation of IIoT applications in the market. Besides, the use of LTE Category 1 technology will also offer near universal network coverage that will allow larger IIoT deployment.
The new router’s medium bandwidth capability will enable machines to rapidly transfer data over the network, along with ensuring a better battery life, thus enhancing the performance lifetime of the product.
The new IIoT router runs on Linux-based NetComm operating system (OS), which enables system integrators and solution architects to develop their own applications using the company’s Software Development Kit (SDK). On the other hand, the built-in GPS allows the router to track on-the-move assets from any place.
Commenting on the development, Els Baert, Director – Marketing & Communications, NetComm, said, “NetComm is very proud to expand our IIoT product range with the launch of the NTC-220 that will deliver best-in-class reliable connectivity and offers an additional medium bandwidth tier to support a wide variety of applications.”
“With our long, well established record in the IIoT area of delivering high-quality products the NTC-220 will enable connectivity right across this fast-growing sector from vending machines to security cameras to agriculture sensors and so much more,” she said.
With the addition of the new router, NetComm is now providing IIoT solutions that cover low-bandwidth narrowband (NB)-IoT applications, over LTE Category-1, right through to higher bandwidth applications that require additional capability of LTE Category-6.
