New Router Apps

Written by Miloslav Bien, Friday 30 October 2020

We are pleased to announce that User Modules for cellular routers are newly called Router Apps. Advantech Router Apps are now available for download at Engineering Portal.

Router Apps add extended functions to Advantech Cellular Routers,with each app tailored to a specific solution. We benefit from extensive skills gained through implementing an array of SW features into a variety of devices over the past years. We categorized all Router Apps (IIoT, Industrial Protocol Conversion, Networking, Programming, Security, Tools, Node-Red). Follow the link.
