With the launch of the 4 G LTE, NetComm expanded its Industrial Internet Portfolio.
The introduction of the NTC-220-offering speeds in the order of a few MBps-medium bandwidth of IIoT connectivity will enable faster deployment of IIoT applications on the market.
The NTC-220’s medium bandwidth capability allows machines to send the data over the network more quickly while still ensuring optimized battery life, thus enhancing product performance.
The rapidly increasing number of applications deployed in the IIoT area means that end-users have to face more connectivity – which means that a broader range of devices is required.
It means that NetComm is offering IIoT solutions for LB-IoT applications, across 4G LTE Category-1 to higher bandwidth applications that need additional LTE Category 6 capacity, to meet NTC-220’s requirements for NetComm IIoT’s portfolio.
The Linux-based NetComm operating system (OS) of the NTC-220 enables solution architects and system integrators to develop their own applications using Netcomm’s Software Development Kit (SDK).Els Baert, Director of Marketing & Communications at NetComm stated, “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 US$123 billion by 2021. With our long, well established record in the IIoT area of delivering high-quality products the NTC-220 will enable connectivity right across this fast-growing sector from vending machines to security cameras to agriculture sensors and so much more.”
