Partnership empowers M2M wireless communications for industry, infrastructure

Machine gears meshing
The promulgation of standards, either industry or defacto, is one key to increased machine-to-machine communication.

In coming years, the process industries will be amongst those most affected by upgrades in communication infrastructure from legacy copper line systems to secure wireless connectivity. Two companies say they’re willing to sweat the details of how exactly that will happen.

Gemalto, a digital security company, says its Cinterion M2M (machine-to-machine) technology will provide wireless connectivity for Encore Networks’ routers deployed in mission-critical applications in the oil & gas, water & wastewater and other industries.

Encore Networks use of the multimode M2M solution in its routers enables industries to wirelessly gather mission-critical data from legacy customer-premise equipment and rapidly transmit it to centers around the country, the company says.

“Gemalto’s unique multimode solution helped us design and quickly launch a first-to-market innovative industrial hardened router to cost-effectively upgrade any hard-wire copper solution to wireless,” said Peter Madsen, CEO, Encore Networks.

With network operators in the US suspending support for wired line infrastructure over the next four years, the company says, it will be able to solve critical connectivity challenges for millions of applications, ranging from industrial automation for M2M and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems to traffic lights and more.”

The routers provide cellular IP connectivity using a communication module engineered to withstand high temperatures, humidity, vibration and shock with proven reliability in the harshest conditions and most severe weather conditions. The solution enables secure 3G connectivity on both CDMA and GSM mobile networks, allowing integrators to develop one product design for any mobile network, while significantly reducing development costs and speeding up time to market for innovative products.

With a footprint that matches Gemalto’s other 3G and future-oriented M2M modules, the Encore Networks router can be easily customized or upgraded without major design changes as technology needs and networks evolve.

Gemalto had 2012 annual revenues of €2.2 billion and more than 10,000 employees operating out of 83 offices located in 43 countries.
