MultiTech’s MultiConnect Conduit Breaks New Ground at Mobile World Congress
Barcelona, SPAIN – March 2, 2015–Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. a leading global manufacturer of M2M and IoT devices, today announced its newly announced MultiTech MultiConnect® Conduit™ and MultiConnect® mDots will be on display in a Smart City demonstration with wot.io, ARM and Stream Solution at Mobile World Congress, March 2-5 in Barcelona, Spain.
The demonstration highlights the MultiConnect Conduit’s unique ability to manage MultiConnect® mDots, (inexpensive radios using the new Semtech LoRa™, low power, wide area RF modulation) connected to sensors or appliances and transmit their data over any cellular network to a customer's preferred data management platform.
At ARM (Hall 6 Stand 6C10) MultiTech will have its MultiConnect® mDots located inside a model car sending sensor info (including accelerometer value) to a MultiConnect® Conduit™ gateway using the Semtech LoRa™, low-power, long-range wireless access (LPWA) RF technology in the European 868MHz ISM band spectrum. The Conduit packages and sends the sensor data to Stream’s awarding winning IoT-X a Unified Acess Connectivity Enviroment (U-ACE) and its ARM’s mbed Device Server. The data is then sent to wot.io™ providers of the leading data service exchange. A Smart City visualization application developed using ThingWorx™ pulls the wot.io data to highlight not only real time events and updates sent from the demo model car, but also performance data and location history from smart vehicles and updated traffic alerts displayed on digital signage located around the UK & Ireland.
MultiConnect Conduit is the industry’s most configurable, manageable, and scalable communications gateway for industrial IoT applications and is ideal for numerous market segments including, Agricultural, Industrial, Smart Cities, and Medical. Each Conduit gateway has the ability to manage thousands of MultiConnect® mDots connected to sensors or appliances and transmit their data over any cellular network to a customer's preferred data management platform.
MultiConnect® mDots are inexpensive radios using the new Semtech LoRa™, low power, wide area RF modulation. mDots bring intelligence, reduced complexity and BOM cost to the very edge of the network by running ARM's mbed OS on a low power ARM Cortex®-M series processor.
