The Cinterion EGX81 Efficient Gateway raises the bar on IoT simplicity by quickly connecting industrial IoT solutions with virtually zero design time and minimal integration effort. It greatly accelerates time-to-market, offering plug-and-play low-power wide-area (LPWA) global connectivity that supports an easy evolution to 5G as technology needs change. The compact, feature-rich device delivers out-of-the-box LTE-M, NB-IoT and 2G connectivity from a single global SKU. An ultra-rugged housing and range of highly efficient IoT-optimised data speeds make the EGX81 gateway ideal for battery operated, remote use cases such as track-and-trace, smart meters, smart city, agriculture, connected sensors and healthcare applications.
The Cinterion EGX81 gateway supports all LTE bands plus Quad Band GSM and it delivers a suite of MTC technologies including LTE Cat. M1, Cat. NB1 and Cat. NB2. Support for 3GPP Release 14 eliminates the need for hardware updates when technology needs evolve, which is especially important as 5G spreads worldwide. An efficient architecture provides the highest efficiency for a long life by leveraging revolutionary power class 5 (20 dBm) and efficient eDRX and PSM. State-of-the-art security features protect the device and data with a secure boot, trusted identities pre-integrated in the root of the gateway and secure key storage enabling trustful enrolment in cloud platforms. An optional integrated Gemalto eSIM strengthens security, simplifies manufacturing and streamlines logistics while providing flexibility in the field with easy remote provisioning and dynamic subscription updates.
What’s more, the EGX81 gateway is supported by Cinterion IoT Suite Services, a platform that helps IoT fleet operators manage the connectivity, security and software lifecycle of IoT solutions enabling business continuity and longer application lifespans. Additionally, a Thales programmable hardware watchdog ensures reliable operation and the unique incremental firmware over-the-air (FOTA) implementation dramatically reduces the size of update binaries, thereby stretching battery life.
Plug-and-play simplicity speeds up deployment
Simple and reliable plug-and-play cellular connectivity quickly connects industrial applications with very little integration or approval effort. It gives new implementers a cost-effective, easy way to bring IoT optimisation to their enterprise.
Incremental FOTA ensures power efficiency and longevity
Incremental firmware over-the-air updates allow revision of only the portion of code that needs updating. This significantly reduces transmission time, power draw and throughput, which are all essential in preserving the investment in NB-IoT technology over the long life of IoT solutions.
Optional Thales eSIM simplifies and secures IoT connectivity
An embedded SIM strengthens security, authenticates devices, encrypts data and securely manages connections to cellular networks. It works seamlessly with Thales’s subscription management solution to maintain connectivity for the lifecycle of devices. All this simplifies integration, manufacturing and logistics and lowers TCO.
