Next-Gen Remote Unit Extends IoT Capabilities
Westell Technologies, Inc. , a leading provider of high-performance network infrastructure solutions, announced availability of its new RMX-4000, the latest addition to Westell’s comprehensive solution for intelligent site management.
Typically installed at a remote, unmanned location, such as a cell tower, the RMX-4000 enables alarm monitoring, intelligent protocol conversion, wireless device aggregation, and equipment connectivity. Used together with Westell’s Optima™ Intelligent Management system or another Operational Support System, the RMX-4000 enhances network management strategy, reduces operational costs and improves overall operational efficiency by reducing the need to dispatch maintenance personnel to remote locations.
“Wireless providers and cell-tower operators are familiar with the economic benefits of intelligent remote monitoring,” said Westell’s President and CEO Stephen John. “With the new RMX-4000, Westell can bring these benefits to a wide variety of new applications for power utility providers, industrial pump operators, natural gas and petroleum distributors, television broadcasters and other industrial concerns.”
The RMX-4000 is a scalable platform that can be configured to serve any size site. New features such as support for industrial 900Mhz wireless sensor technology, WiFi, low-cost wired sensors, and Power-over-Ethernet make the RMX-4000 ideal for developing IoT applications. The RMX-4000 supports wireless provisioning via Android or IOS mobile apps, further simplifying and streamlining installation and deployment.
