The New ALTA IoT Gateway Features 4G LTE CAT-M1/NB2 Cellular Technologies
SALT LAKE CITY (June 2, 2022) – Monnit launched its new ALTA® Wireless IoT Gateway that showcases a cellular and Ethernet platform to keep ALTA Wireless Sensor networks in various environments and remote locations running strong on the Internet.
The ALTA IoT Gateway’s cellular engine features 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) Category M1 (CAT-M1) and NarrowBand-Internet of Things (NB-IoT) 2 (NB2). Its RJ-45 Ethernet jack allows local device configuration and diagnostics and supports connectivity backup. The ALTA IoT Gateway is a dual-connectivity device as a cellular gateway with Ethernet failover or an Ethernet gateway with cellular failover.
The ALTA IoT Gateway easily connects to iMonnit® cloud software, where you can set up and manage ALTA Sensors on a mobile device or PC. It protects, aggregates, and communicates sensor data so you can log data and monitor critical conditions 24/7.
“IoT data is one of the most valuable assets,” said Monnit Founder and CEO Brad Walters. “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.”
