Apr 21, 2015
Mounds View, Minn. – April 21, 2015–Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. a leading global manufacturer of M2M and IoT devices, today announced it will showcase newly announced MultiTech MultiConnect® Conduit™, MultiConnect® Dragonfly™ and its SocketModem® Cell 4G-LTE Cellular Modem at the upcoming Embedded Systems Conference, May 6-7 in Boston, MA. These groundbreaking products will be on display in Symmetry’s booth 27-30.
MultiConnect Conduit is the industry’s most configurable, manageable, and scalable communications gateway for industrial IoT applications and is ideal for numerous market segments including, Agricultural, Industrial, Smart Cities, and Medical. Each Conduit gateway has the ability to manage thousands of MultiConnect® mDots and other sensors and transmit their data over any cellular network to a customer's preferred data management platform. mDots are inexpensive radios using the new Semtech LoRa™, low power, wide area RF modulation. mDots bring intelligence, reduced complexity and BOM cost to the very edge of the network by running ARM's mbed OS on a low power ARM Cortex®-M series processor.
The upcoming demonstration highlights the MultiConnect Conduit’s unique ability to manage MultiConnect® mDots, (inexpensive radios using the new Semtech LoRa™, low power, wide area RF modulation) connected to sensors or appliances and transmit their data over any cellular network to a customer's preferred data management platform.
MultiConnect Dragonfly, the first ARM mbed Programmable Cellular System-on-Module, is a ready-to-integrate processing and communications device that offers an ARM mbed compatible software library for faster development. This all-in-one compact design allows developers to host their application and have access to a full suite of interfaces for connecting sensors or other remote assets.
“MultiTech is taking the industry by storm with its state of the art, award-winning products,” said CEO Stefan Lindvall. “We are well positioned to leverage the growing IoT and embedded systems markets and are thrilled with the power of our products.”The new SocketModem Cell 4G-LTE is PTCRB certified and approved by AT&T as a network ready-to-integrate end device (MTSMC-LAT1) with support for LTE bands 2, 4, 5 & 17 and fallback to 3G-HSPA+. A certified European model (MTSMC-LEU1) supports LTE bands 3, 7 & 20 with fallback to HSPA+ / GPRS providing always on connectivity across most every European carrier. Network approval testing for Verizon Wireless (MTSMC-LVW2) 4G is in process, supporting LTE bands 4 & 13, and engineering samples are available upon request.
