Eurotech: multi-service IoT gateway and cellular adapter for LTE Cat 4 speed
Eurotech announced two new products that provide pre-certified 4G/LTE cellular connectivity: the ReliaGATE 10-12, which further extends the ReliaGATE Multi-service IoT Gateway family for industrial applications, and the latest models of its ReliaCELL rugged USB cellular adapter, now supporting LTE Category 4 transmission speeds, that greatly accelerate IoT deployments.
Based on the ReliaGATE 10-11, the ReliaGATE 10-12 is a compact multi-service IoT gateway for industrial-grade IoT applications such as servitization of remote capital assets, data collection, telemetry, energy monitoring, brownfield connectivity, and remote maintenance of field devices.
The product is powered by a Texas Instruments AM3352 ARM Cortex A8 processor and features 1GB RAM, 4GB eMMC, and a MicroSD slot for storage. A robust set of I/Os are provided, including (2x) Ethernet, (2x) Digital I/O, (2x) USB, and (2X) IEEE RS-232/485. GPS with Dead Reckoning and optional odometer/direction input are also available for mobile applications. Embedded connectivity options include Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n), BLE, and AT&T pre-certified LTE Category 1 variants for both US and EU markets, with more carrier and country certifications to come after product release.
As with all Eurotech IoT gateways, ReliaGATE 10-12 is powered by Everyware Software Framework, a commercial, enterprise-ready edition of Eclipse Kura, the open source Java/OSGi middleware for IoT gateways. Distributed and supported by Eurotech, ESF adds advanced security, diagnostics, provisioning, remote access and full integration with Everyware Cloud, Eurotech’s IoT integration platform.
Eurotech’s ReliaCELL, a family of highly ruggedized, IP67 rated, modular USB Cellular Adapters for mobile and industrial IoT applications, now supports LTE Category 4 transmission rates. Variants for both the US (Verizon pre-certified) and EU markets are available, with more carrier and country certifications to be added after product release. ReliaCELL eases the migration of any device with a USB interface, including Eurotech’s ReliaGATE multi-service gateways, by providing a modular, quickly interchangeable modem that can be readily upgraded as new cellular bands and technologies become available, thus providing the fastest Time-to-Market and investment protection over extended life cycles.
