Cinterion, the global leader in cellular machine-to-machine (M2M) communication modules and a Gemalto company, today introduced BGS2-Terminal, a simple and reliable plug-and-play M2M communication terminal to quickly connect any type of industrial applications and remote assets using cellular technology.
It requires minimal integration and approval efforts, allowing for significantly accelerated implementation timeline.
Cinterion’s ultra-compact BGS2-Terminal includes a variety of standardized industrial interfaces enabling easy deployment for different M2M market applications including remote monitoring and control, security solutions and building automation. In addition, the terminal’s extended temperature range and exceptionally low power consumption assures long life in out-of-the-way locations. For instance, the Cinterion terminal can be quickly installed with solar panels enabling real time, two-way data communication that allows power companies to remotely monitor energy production and immediately respond when repairs or maintenance are needed. The BGS2-Terminal helps keep equipment functioning at peak levels while reducing costly field service visits.
Norbert Muhrer, CEO Cinterion said:
“With the footprint of a credit card and a highly flexible mounting concept, our new BGS2-Terminal can be installed in most industrial assets and be used out-of-the-box to connect applications to the IP-based world”
“Simplified integration is the key to opening new market segments and helping more enterprises to optimize operations and cut costs with smart M2M technology”.
The best-in-class BGS2-Terminal comes in two variants: RS-485 offering vertical-specific industrial interfaces for building automation and automatic meter reading; and RS-232 for general-purpose applications. Both variants are available immediately for use worldwide.
