Australian telecom equipment provider NetComm has introduced its new 4G LTE Category 1 IIoT Router (NTC-220) that promises a reliable, and secure medium bandwidth connectivity via LTE networks.
The launch of medium bandwidth IIoT connectivity through NTC-220 will allow deployment of IIoT applications in the market at an unprecedented rate. Moreover, the use of LTE Category 1 technology in the NTC-220 will also provide nearby network coverage enabling greater IIoT deployment.
The addition of the NTC-220 to NetComm’s IIoT portfolio allows the company to offer IIoT solutions covering low-bandwidth NB-IoT applications directly to higher bandwidth applications, which require the extra capability of the LTE Category-6. The NTC-220 runs on the Linux-based NetComm OS, allowing solution developers and system integrators to create their own applications using the company’s proprietary SDK, whereas the built-in GPS allows the router to track on-the-move assets from any part of the world.
Els Baert, director of marketing and communications at 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. Companies around the world are really starting to wake up to the significant productivity gains made possible by embracing IIoT applications with Gartner forecasting that the global IIoT market will be worth $123 billion by 2021.”
Elsewhere in IIoT, the UK government last month launched its first 5G smart factory as part of an industrial trial to know how local factories can be transformed. They have used the Worcester Bosch factory wherein the facility has been fitted with sensors and 5G-based technology for monitoring its operations.
