NetComm Wireless Limited has announced that major US telco Verizon Wireless has certified the NetComm Wireless 4G LTE Light Industrial M2M Router (NWL-25) for use on the Verizon Wireless Private Network.
While that means that is it only available in the US, Netcomm proudly boasts that the NWL-25 ‘delivers a cost-effective solution for LTE/XLTE network coverage, and addresses public network security and privacy concerns by enabling the direct transfer of data from wireless Machine-to-Machine (M2M) devices to internal enterprise systems over a segregated private network.’
Enterprise customers in the US ‘can now secure the transfer, management and control of large amounts of data from remote and mobile assets such as digital signs, healthcare devices and business backup using the NWL-25 to separate data from public Internet traffic, and deliver an uninterrupted connection to internal IP networks.’
A versatile device, it is ‘designed to support the successful implementation of M2M solutions across all industry sectors,’ and will ‘enable new business models and is expected to fast-track the uptake of M2M in the U.S., which continues to dominate the global market in terms of cellular connections and M2M revenue which will be USD1.6 trillion in 2024,’ (according to Machina Research, M2M Global Forecast & Analysis 2014-24.)
Legendary industry stalwart and telco leader David Stewart, CEO and Managing Director, NetComm Wireless said: “Security is one of the biggest barriers to M2M adoption and growth, and as the proliferation of connected devices brings new challenges, data must be safely managed.
“We are pleased to join Verizon Wireless in providing enterprise customers with a scalable and economical approach to the secure management of mission-critical M2M applications.”
The company says that ‘virtually any LAN connected device can be managed and controlled using the NWL-25 for remote access to a private network that is supported by the coverage, speed and reliability offered by Verizon Wireless.’
