Monnit has unveiled its new ALTA Wireless IoT Gateway, which features a cellular and Ethernet platform for keeping ALTA Wireless Sensor networks connected to the Internet in a variety of situations and remote places.
The cellular engine of the ALTA IoT Gateway supports 4G LTE Category M1 (CAT-M1) and NarrowBand-Internet of Things (NB-IoT) 2 technologies (NB2). Its RJ-45 Ethernet socket offers connectivity backup and allows for local device configuration and troubleshooting. The ALTA IoT Gateway is a dual-connection device that can function as a cellular gateway with Ethernet failover or as an Ethernet gateway with cellular failover.
The ALTA IoT Gateway links to the iMonnit cloud software, which allows you to set up and operate ALTA Sensors from your mobile device or computer. Sensor data is protected, aggregated, and sent so you may log data and monitor important conditions around the clock.
“IoT data is one of the most valuable assets. Our new ALTA IoT Gateway ensures it’s safe and available when you need it. The ALTA IoT Gateway’s reliable versatility is its most impressive feature, keeping IoT networks connected seamlessly everywhere from remote areas to main facilities,”
Monnit Founder and CEO Brad Walters
The ALTA IoT Gateway provides long-range radio frequency transmission with interference immunity for up to one mile (line-of-sight) and 1,200+ feet through 12+ walls, in addition to its wireless 4G LTE CAT-M1/NB2 cellular engine (non-line-of-sight). The ALTA IoT Gateway also has a battery backup of up to 60 hours, and GPS data is available for a price.
