April 19, 2019 – Advantech, a provider of Internet of Things (IoT) systems and services, announced its Verizon-certified LTE Cat-M1 router, ICR-3211B. The ICR-3211B router is the first U.S. product launch from Advantech’s ICR-3200 router line.
LTE Category M1 (or Cat-M1) is a WWAN solution for applications that don’t require high speeds usually associated with 4G LTE. LTE Cat-M1 devices provide similar speeds to 2G (375kbps up/down), building penetration for urban or bunkered installations, and lower power for battery-powered applications.
In addition to the benefits of LTE Cat-M1, the ICR-3211B has a built-in super capacitor for sending “last gasp” messages if the primary power supply is interrupted. The combination of in-building communication and redundant power makes the ICR-3211B a choice for building automation, energy management and remote SCADA applications.
The ICR-3211B works with Advantech’s WebAccess/DMP software to support centralized configuration and remote management.
