Red Lion Controls recently announced that its Sixnet IndustrialPro 6000 series of industrial cellular routers across North America now feature 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE (News - Alert)) support. Red Lion's IndustrialPro 6000 routers are the first M2M rugged devices that have cleared certification and compatibility testing by Bell Mobility 4G LTE network.
Red Lion Controls are specialists in communication, monitoring, and control solutions for industrial automation and networking. In a statement, Mahesh Patel, director of wireless product management at Red Lion Controls, said that, "With more organizations using wireless technologies to monitor and control critical operations in remote locations, LTE support gives customers the advantage of speeds that rival wired broadband connections. While our products still offer flexible backwards compatibility to 3G networks, the addition of LTE not only delivers significant performance improvements, but also offers 10 times lower latency than earlier technologies. Increased speeds are essential for streaming video and remote applications where high latency or jitter is simply not acceptable."
LTE, which delivers faster 4G wireless connectivity, can be used by organizations of all sizes for accelerating data speeds when using cellular technology for both primary or backup WAN connectivity. LTE offers data rates that are 100 times faster than 2G and 3G technology, which makes it ideal for remote offices, video surveillance, and remote automation environments.
Sixnet (News - Alert) IndustrialPro 6000 cellular M2M routers have been designed by Red Lion to deliver secure and affordable wireless connectivity to remotely located offices and assets enhanced with 3G to 4G technology all within one single solution.
IndustrialPro routers can serve as highly reliable primary WAN connection or as a backup to existing network links. The routers are ideally suited for harsh industrial environments and can be used in oil & gas, power & energy and water & wastewater applications, which are often burdened with space restrictions and no wired connectivity.
