NetComm NTC-100 Industrial IoT device
NetComm has announced an addition to its Industrial IoT portfolio to allow businesses to connect all low-power, low-bandwidth devices to LTE networks. Whether it’s to find an economically viable means of monitoring environmental conditions such as ocean levels, improve smart metering, monitor the farm or introduce smart city applications such as road signage, parking meters and bin collection, a growing number of devices can now leverage LTE networks worldwide.
Low-power devices that only require a limited amount of bandwidth are being introduced by businesses to optimise operations. With the NetComm NTC-100 product, businesses are less dependent on proprietary unlicensed networks in the area to manage and control these devices remotely.
The low-power, low-bandwidth device integrates a dual-technology LTE module using Cat -M1 and NB-IoT technologies to economically track and monitor applications that were traditionally too costly to connect. This is expected to accelerate the uptake of Industrial IoT by providing diverse industry sectors with the chance to connect and manage large fleets of small, low-value assets wherever there is an LTE network available.
Businesses across all industry sectors can now connect devices with the standards developed by 3GPP: Cat-M1 and NB-IoT. Widely available LTE networks support these applications by adding low-bandwidth capabilities to extend range and battery life.
The modem supports Cat-M1 and NB-IoT connections to any device that needs network connectivity, giving businesses a way to remotely manage, control and gather data from their devices. The device also features remote management capabilities to query status information, run diagnostics, troubleshoot and execute commands via SMS.
Built to endure vibration and extreme temperatures in harsh industrial, commercial and automotive environments, the robust device features rugged IP40-rated industrial housing to ensure longevity in harsh remote and isolated climates. The remote management allows for a wide range of automation and monitoring features to avoid unnecessary truck rolls.
