MultiConnect eCell Recognized for Excellence in the Growing IoT Industry


Mounds View, MN – March 3, 2020 Multi-Tech Systems, Inc., a leading provider of Industrial Internet of Things solutions announced today that MultiConnect® eCell cellular to Ethernet bridge has received a 2019 IoT Excellence Award from IoT Evolution World, the leading web site covering the Internet of Things (IoT) marketplace.

The 2019 IoT Excellence Award honors innovative products that support the availability of information being deduced, inferred and directly gathered from sensors, systems and anything else that is supporting better business and personal decisions.

The MultiConnect eCell cellular to Ethernet bridge enables the ability to add cellular connectivity to existing wired assets, quickly and easily. It provides wireless failover to prevent network outages to vending machines, kiosks, digital signs, ATM machines and countless other fixed assets that require reliable, always-on connectivity. With 4G-LTE Cat 4, users are not required to sacrifice bandwidth when switching between cellular and Ethernet. The easy set up wizard, bundled antenna, power supply and Ethernet cable make installation simple. eCell is cost-optimized to give users what is needed with minimal complexity in a rugged, aluminum chassis suitable for extreme environments. And with FCC, IC, CE, PTCRB and carrier certifications, the MultiConnect eCell reduces time to market as well as cost enabling fast deployment.

The MultiConnect® eCell cellular to Ethernet Bridge is also available for use on Private LTE OnGo CBRS networks. This new model has several unique features in comparison to other MultiConnect eCell models and MultiTech modems, routers, and gateways:

  • Simple, low-cost connectivity solution for dedicated private networks, neutral host networks, and fixed wireless networks

  • FCC Part 15 and Part 96 authorized end-user device for LTE band 48 and OnGo CBRS Networks

  • Approved interoperability with CBRS base stations and access points
