Enabling an Intelligent Planet

Deploying cellular routers effectively into industrial networks is much more than rugged, reliable hardware – it requires taking intelligence to the absolute edge. Hardware that is carrier-agile, cost-competitive, with the flexible configuration interfaces to fit M2M applications. More importantly than ever, a truly open development platform to build application software, host applications, seamlessly manage network connectivity and securely administer the system.

This is what defines a smart solution.

Smart Hardware

The versatility of industrial 5G, 4G applications requires hardware that is fit for purpose. Your purpose. Advantech offers a comprehensive selection of routers and gateways designed and built in the European Union with the right data speeds, the right interfaces and the rugged specifications required.

Intelligence Inside

The line between a router and an embedded computer is blurring in many applications today and depending on the processing power required, an intelligent router is significantly more cost-effective than an embedded computer. New data demands for IIoT or operations optimization initiatives also open new questions as to where data is compiled, enriched, and processed. With pre-built APIs into selected applications platforms and an open environment that supports app development in Java, Python, C/C++, Node-Red, Docker, you’ll find more flexibility than with any other router on the market. You’re also welcome to check out our app library for available downloads on apps already developed to enhance specific router functionality.
