Cellular remote monitoring and asset tracking applications have proven to be cost-effective game changers. By leveraging public cellular networks, not only can you monitor assets on the move, but you can also eliminate the cost associated with building out and managing your own wired infrastructure.

Industrial Cellular IoT Technology Considerations

We're now at the stage where cellular operators are making network changes that are important to be aware of. These include:

  • Voluntarily shutting down their 2G and 3G networks and offering new technologies
  • Moving M2M/IoT customers to upgrade their connected devices
  • Looking to variants of LTE and even 5G to provide IoT cellular technology solutions

MultiTech provides devices that leverage the latest in industrial IoT cellular technology to address the needs of today’s most important applications. Our team is facilitating the transition from legacy network technology to the network technology that promises to carry applications through the next 20 years.

Private LTE Networks

 

 

A private LTE network is an alternative to commonly available public LTE networks. Leveraging the latest in cellular technology for industrial IoT applications means creating private LTE networks. MultiTech has partnered with the CBRS Alliance, and our devices are among the first to offer connectivity through Neutral Host public access CBRS networks. These products operate on the FCC open mid-band spectrum between 3.55-3.7 GHz and are designed to maximize productivity and increase efficiency across a wide range of industries.
