"The narrowband connectivity of cnReach extends the communications infrastructure and backhaul, so we now have the capability and visibility to manage the entire IIoT network end-to-end," said Mike Mitchell, President, Petro Communications. "We require completely dependable connections to process sensor data and send control commands to the most remote locations in the field."
"To implement real-time visibility and control of complex operations, industry leaders need applications that can properly aggregate and distill data from the edge of the network, provide analysis and control, and then transport accumulated large volume of processed information to private and cloud-based data centers," said Atul Bhatnagar, President and CEO of Cambium Networks. "We offer a complete solution with the cnReach platform to transport data from the node to the NOC, and cnMaestro™ manages the entire network in a single pane of glass."
The cnReach N500 radio completes a full, end-to-end suite of highly resilient wireless narrowband and broadband solutions, providing network operators a complete wireless networking solution to implement their IIoT initiatives by connecting devices at the outermost edge of their operation. The product supports licensed and unlicensed operations in the 900 MHz and 700 MHz frequencies, with additional frequencies planned, and eases the transition from serial networks to all-IP networks with extensive built-in I/O capabilities.
"cnReach enables utilities, petrochemical, and other critical infrastructure operators to unleash the full value of the Industrial Internet by turning accumulated and real-time data into insightful knowledge and critical actions," said Bruce Collins, Director of Product Management for cnReach at Cambium Networks. "cnReach provides the underlying communications infrastructure that is highly reliable and resilient for interconnecting sensors and controls across a large-scale field area network. This connectivity provides the vital data and control functions needed to meet compliance requirements, improve safety, and boost efficiency."
