LTE industrial cellular gateway

Paul Boughton

In the fast changing wireless landscape, several converging trends have encouraged industries to adopt the LTE (Long-Term Evolution) cellular standard for M2M applications: the gradual decommissioning of legacy networks, the cost-benefits of LTE technology, and the increased demand in rich media and real-time monitoring.

Moxa is helping system integrators take advantage of LTE to transform M2M applications by introducing their first LTE cellular gateway, the OnCell G3470A-LTE.

The unit features an integrated, high-speed four-port Gigabit Ethernet switch that allows up to 4 devices to be connected with the ability to NAT and route between the cellular connection and the wired ports.

To enhance reliability, a key for industrial users, the OnCell G3470A-LTE is equipped with built-in power and antenna isolation to fight against EMI, along with Dual SIM support for cellular connection redundancy, dual power input, and innovative GuaranLink technology for connectivity. Together these features ensure uninterrupted video streaming over LTE networks in harsh and demanding industrial environments.

The new OnCell G3470A-LTE comes with Moxa's OnCell Central Manager v2.0 software, an industrial-grade centralised solution that allows up to 2000 OnCell network devices to be configured, managed, and monitored on the internet.
