The company said in a statement that the introduction of medium bandwidth IIoT connectivity via the new router, which offers speeds of a few Mbps, would enable quicker deployment of IIoT applications.
Use of the widely utilised LTE Category-1 technology in the NTC-220 would also offer almost blanket network coverage to enable greater IIoT deployment.
The launch of the NTC-2220 means that NetComm is now offering IIoT solutions covering low-bandwidth NB-IoT applications, over LTE category-1, through to higher bandwidth applications that need LTE Category-6.

NetComm Marketing and Communications director Els Baert said: “NetComm is very proud to expand our IIoT product range with the launch of the NTC-220 that will deliver best-in-class reliable connectivity and offers an additional medium bandwidth tier to support a wide variety of applications.
“Companies around the world are really starting to wake up to the significant productivity gains made possible by embracing IIoT applications with Gartner forecasting that the global IIoT market will be worth US$123 billion by 2021.
“With our long, well-established record in the IIoT area of delivering high-quality products, the NTC-220 will enable connectivity right across this fast-growing sector from vending machines to security cameras to agriculture sensors and so much more.”
Last month, NetComm agreed to be acquired by US-based Casa Systems for $161 million.
