When fail­ure is not an op­tion

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

NetComm Wire­less Lim­ited has ex­panded its wire­less M2M / In­dus­trial In­ter­net of Things (IIoT) port­fo­lio with the launch of the 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 con­nec­tiv­ity in real time.

The NTC- 400 se­ries is spe­cially en­gi­neered to con­nect and man­age some of the most band­width in­ten­sive in­dus­trial and in- ve­hi­cle IIoT ap­pli­ca­tions, such as large- scale f leet track­ing, sur­veil­lance and 4K/ UHD dig­i­tal dis­plays.

De­signed to con­trol op­er­a­tional tech­nol­ogy that per­forms crit­i­cal func­tions in harsh in­dus­trial and ve­hic­u­lar en­vi­ron­ments, the ro­bust NTC400 se­ries com­bines high speed 4G LTE data com­mu­ni­ca­tions (300 Mbps) and a dual band WiFi ac­cess point with car­rier- grade re­mote man­age­ment and sup­port for mul­ti­ple LTE bands in­clud­ing band 28 ( 700 MHz).

NetComm Wire­less’ fully fea­tured RDM was launched in con­junc­tion with the NTC- 400 to ac­cel­er­ate time-to- mar­ket, de­liver new rev­enue gen­er­at­ing ser­vices and lower the to­tal cost of own­er­ship. The RDM en­ables the se­cure up­grade of firmware and ap­pli­ca­tions to in­di­vid­ual, groups or large- scale f leets of de­vices to fa­cil­i­tate ex­ten­sive man­age­ment, ser­vice pro­vi­sion­ing, mon­i­tor­ing and data col­lec­tion. The RDM 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.

“In­dus­trial ap­pli­ca­tions are of­ten mis­sion crit­i­cal, so fail­ure is not an op­tion. 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. The ATMs, vend­ing machines and other pre- In­ter­net in­dus­trial and com­mer­cial equip­ment that once e 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.

“And our cloud based re­mote de­vice man­age­ment plat­form adds an­other level of ef­fi­ciency with live vis­i­bil­ity and smart net­work man­age­ment at scale.” said Timo Brouwer, Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer, NetComm Wire­less.

The de­vice seam­lessly in­te­grates into ex­ist­ing re­mote man­age­ment plat­forms, and in­cludes Gi­ga­bit Eth­er­net ports, a se­rial port, and a USB port for net­work f lex­i­bil­ity.

To en­dure harsh in­dus­trial en­vi­ron­ments, the NTC- 400 se­ries fea­tures a ro­bust metal en­clo­sure and a wide tem­per­a­ture rat­ing; and sup­ports in- ve­hi­cle and track­ing ap­pli­ca­tions with in­te­grated GPS that is com­pat­i­ble with all global sys­tems. I/O ports al­low users to read sen­sors or re­motely con­trol equip­ment such as lights, me­ters or pumps; and its ig­ni­tion sense ca­pa­bil­ity and wide in­put volt­age range makes it ideal for ve­hic­u­lar ap­pli­ca­tions.
