AT&T Awards Network Certification to Moxa UC-8100 Computer

October 26, 2015 - Moxa, Inc., a global provider of communications infrastructure solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), announced today that its UC-8100 embedded computing platform has been tested by AT&T and met all requirements for compatibility to operate on the carrier's nationwide wireless network. Certification means that users of the Moxa UC-8100 platform can now leverage the coverage, speed and reliability of AT&T's expansive 4G LTE network in bandwidth-intensive Machine-to-Machine (M2M) industrial applications to reduce operational costs and enable new business opportunities.

In May of this year the UC-8100 was certified to operate on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network. With today's announcement the UC-8100 is now the world's first industrial-grade wireless computer to earn both AT&T and Verizon 4G LTE certification.

"AT&T was an early leader in supporting IIoT and accelerating its growth," said Daniel Liu, Business Development Manager for Moxa. "Like AT&T, Moxa is dedicated to the emergence of the real-time, adaptive enterprise where virtually any device that benefits from two-way communications can be connected. Our UC-8100 computer is just the latest in a long line of Moxa IIoT devices that extend the reach of industry, helping in capturing information and controlling resources."

Designed to improve remote communications and connectivity, the Moxa UC-8100 Series wireless computer makes it simple for systems providers to offer a complete monitoring service for remote field devices used in large-scale, big data WAN applications, such as Smart Grid telecom, residential solar power systems, and city-wide IP video surveillance programs. In solar applications, for example, the UC-8100 acts as a compact, highly flexible, vendor-agnostic data logger that connects to inverters, string combiners, smart meters, and other devices, then transmits that data over Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or cellular.
 
The UC-8100 Series computer has a slim form factor (10.1 x 2.7 x 12.8 cm) designed for DIN-rail mounting. Despite its small size, it can provide system designers with unbeatable flexibility for managing heavy-load data processing and communications. Two LAN ports and up to two serial ports connect the UC-8100 to devices, and built-in SD and mini SD sockets allow for easy storage expansion, delivering plenty of space at a highly economical price. Since the UC-8100 is exceptionally programmable and customizable, it is able to handle nearly any data collection and communication task from nearly any vendor's device.
 
For a limited time, Moxa is offering a specially-priced starter kit that includes the UC-8100 unit, a wireless module (Wi-Fi or LTE), pre-installed tools, and instructions for enabling VPN and routing functions. Interested system integrators can obtain a starter kit direct through Moxa's online store or through select Moxa distributors.
