DH Solutions to Accelerate Encore’s Sales of the C2C™ Router, an Embedded Cellular Replacement of POTS Lines for M2M Applications
Encore Networks today announced that it has formed a strategic partnership with leading Machine-to-Machine (M2M) integrator and distributor, Digital Highway Wireless Solutions.
DH Solutions will sell, engineer and service Encore’s entire BANDIT™ line of rugged routers with emphasis on the C2C™, Encore’s low cost, cellular replacement of Plain Old Telephone Services (POTS) copper line based M2M applications.
Available in both commercial and ruggedized, industrial versions, the C2C™ router provides IP interworking capabilities to an analog modem interface in a single box solution. The C2C™ simply connects a users existing analog modem to 2G, 3G or 4G cellular networks. The remote equipment continues to function with no changes to Operations Administration and Maintenance (OA&M) with the added benefits of the cellular network’s increased data throughput, reliability, data security utilizing IPsec (AES256, 3DES), and other IP-based services and applications.
“By adding Encore products, and the C2C in particular, to our M2M solutions, we can offer customers a way to preserve their existing CPE and eliminate their dependence on high cost analog copper lines, all while moving to a lower cost, all IP wireless cellular infrastructure,” said Brian Rosema, VP Sales and Marketing of DH Solutions.
“This relationship allows us to expand our customer base by quickly addressing and upgrading legacy M2M applications for all the markets we serve. This will certainly be a solid fit for our existing ATM and manufacturing verticals.”
