Sixnet, a global market leader of machine-to-machine (M2M) networking solutions for industrial and commercial markets, today announced the new Sixnet IndustrialPro™ Wireless Gateways and Routers at the DistribuTECH conference in Tampa, Florida. Sixnet is currently displaying these new products and other industrial connectivity solutions designed for power and energy customers from March 23-25 at DistribuTECH booth #239.
Sixnet's IndustrialPro™ Wireless Gateways and Routers provide secure, cost-effective wireless connectivity to remote locations and assets. They can reliably be used as secure, primary WAN connections or as backup to landline connections.
These new rugged wireless products provide cellular connectivity for remote devices such as meters, sensors or RTUs in industrial environments such as power and energy, oil and gas, water/wastewater, transportation and video surveillance, where space may be limited and wired connectivity is not feasible. For many remote sites, cellular solutions can be easier to deploy and more cost effective than landline connections.
The Sixnet IndustrialPro™ Wireless Gateway provides 3G or 2G cellular connectivity, one Ethernet port, one serial port and support for either AC or DC power.
The Sixnet IndustrialPro™ Wireless Router provides 3G or 2G cellular connectivity, one or five Ethernet ports, one serial port, and support for either AC or DC power. It delivers full firewall and routing functionality, supporting IPSec or SSL VPN, Port Forwarding and support for Network Address Translation (NAT), OSPF and RIP. It also offers a local web-based management interface.
Both products are managed by Sixnet’s SixView™ Manager, which enables powerful management, configuration and monitoring of multiple devices from a single console. SixView Manager also allows customers to easily update firmware and make field changes to routers or gateways without having to deploy resources to remote locations or manage individual units, thereby saving time and reducing costs. SixView Manager is used to manage all of Sixnet’s M2M wireless solutions, including the recently announced QuicKonnect™ Routers, EnterprisePro™ Routers, ATM Cellular Gateway and ATM Internet Gateway.
“Our industrial gateways and routers bring cellular connectivity to remote locations and the harshest environments,” said Hilton Nicholson, CEO at Sixnet. “Cellular continues to be a cost-effective, easy-to-use alternative to WAN technologies, and with our compact form factor and powerful management platform, Sixnet makes it easier to deploy, monitor and manage devices regardless of location.”
Sixnet’s comprehensive portfolio of M2M and mobile connectivity solutions are designed for a wide range of markets and applications such as power substations, water treatment, oil & gas, military, intelligent transportation systems and others. In addition to harsh industrial and outdoor environments, Sixnet also provides wireless connectivity for kiosks, ATM machines, point-of-sale (POS) terminals, lottery machines, landline backup, remote monitoring and control, fleet management, field service vehicles and other applications.
