Out-of-the-box global MTC connectivity

25 November 2020 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

The Thales Cinterion EGX81 Efficient IoT Gateway raises the bar on IoT simplicity, delivering highly efficient global Machine Type Communications (MTC) connectivity straight out of the box.

The EGX81 has worldwide support for Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies including LTE Cat. M1, Cat.NB1 and Cat.NB2 plus quad-band GSM – all from a single product SKU. An ultra-rugged housing and range of highly efficient IoT-optimised network technologies make the EGX81 gateway ideal for battery-operated equipment. It is ideal for use cases such as remote maintenance and control, smart meters, smart cities, vending machines, agriculture, connected sensors and healthcare applications.

Simple and reliable plug-and-play cellular connectivity quickly connects industrial applications with very little integration or approval effort.

It gives IoT designers an easy and cost-effective solution to connect their assets.

An innovative architecture leverages power class 5 (20 dBm) and efficient eDRX and PSM for ultra efficiency to ensure a long product lifespan. Advanced incremental Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) updates only the portion of code that needs revision. This significantly reduces service interruptions, transmission time, data usage and power draw to further extend battery life.

An embedded SIM (eSIM) can't be removed, so it strengthens security. The SIM authenticates devices, encrypts data and securely manages connections to cellular networks. It works seamlessly with Thales’ subscription management solution to maintain connectivity for the lifecycle of devices. All this simplifies integration, manufacturing and logistics and lowers total cost of ownership.

An advanced power management system ensures reliability and provides optimised sleep mode to preserve power and further extend battery life. State-of-the-art architecture and an advanced power management system provide the highest efficiency to ensure long life by leveraging power class 5 (20 dBm) and efficient eDRX and PSM.
