A mobile wireless router for industrial remote communication

| By Yelena Shamis



This company has expanded its Scalance M wireless router series by adding two new devices. The Scalance M876-3 is ideally suited for transmitting data via third generation wireless internet access (3G). In Europe, these are the well-known UMTS networks, with EVDO (evolution data optimized) networks being prevalent particularly in North America. Using the second new addition to the series, the Scalance M876-4, users can connect to subnets and automation devices via LTE (long term evolution) wireless standard, widely used throughout Europe. Thanks to their high bandwidths, performance capabilities and transmission speeds, the routers are able to be deployed in a diverse range of applications — Process Industries and Drives Division, Siemens AG, Erlangen, Germany
