This enterprise offers an extensive portfolio which includes sensor and communication technologies, design and integration expertise, unparalleled simplicity and user experience, and products which are optimized to offer the best performance and value. 

Though their offer, MultiTech seeks to enable business transformation by solving problems through innovative solutions, keeping the focus on what customers really need, with high performance, and professionalism at core. 

 

What does MultiTech offer? 

MultiTech offers wireless products which enable simple, scalable long range connectivity power between assets, “things”, and applications, using standard-based, open architectures for maximum adjustability to collect extremely useful data, helping companies drive revenue and save precious time upskilling their teams and procedures. 

This company’s products can connect to different networks like LoRaWAN, cellular, or CBRS and private LTE. LoRaWAN, Long range Wide Area Network, is mainly for battery powered devices, offering choice of deployment options and cost optimization for valuable small data. Cellular allows a standard-based coverage around the globe, end-device certified to simplify deployments and expertise to help manage upgrades. Also, networks like CBRS and Private LTE allow wireless coverage to get where no other coverage exists, increasing availability of capacity and offering CBRS OnGo for the United States. 

MultiTech has a vast offer of LoRaWAN gateway products which can be found on ThingPark Market. These gateways provide deep in-building connectivity allowing to connect thousands of IoT devices by harnessing the power of the LoRaWAN protocol.  

 

What is the use of MultiTech’s gateways? 

The offer of quick-to-deploy and simple-to-scale, programmable IoT gateways have been designed to be a product of versatility and great power. They are the industry’s most configurable, manageable, and scalable gateways for industrial IoT applications with Ethernet connection. 

These gateways come with ThingPark LRR preinstalled and licenses included, and feature two accessory card slots in the solution, allowing users to plug in MultiConnect MCard accessories supporting their preferred wired or wireless interface. These gateways are great power solutions which have been specifically developed to be quickly deployed, customized and managed, helping companies save time during their deployment. 

In their offer you can find different versions of their MultiTech Conduit Access Point 4G LoRaWAN GatewayMultiTech Conduit Ethernet 3dBi LoRa for IndoorsMultiTech Conduit gateway for Industrial Sites, the MultiTech LoRaWAN MultiConnect Conduit Gateway, and the MultiTech Conduit SPI Ethernet LoRa indoor Gateway. 

This company also offers two ready-to use starter kits for easy deployment, the 4G LoRa Gateway, and the MultiTech LoRa Gateway Starter Kit. These starter kits have been designed to offer everything needed to quickly get a LoRa proof of concept up and running as well as connected to the cloud. The MultiTech LoRa Gateway Starter Kit has been created to obtain sensor information and to display it in the cloud within minutes after opening the kit’s box. This solution features the MultiConnect® mDots’s and xDot’s Arm® Mbed™ programmable LoRa Alliance Certified™ end points, dev boards, reference design, and Site Survey tools, plus the Conduit, which is the industry’s most configurable, manageable, and scalable cellular communications gateway. 

The second starter kit offer is the 4G LoRa Gateway StarterKit-868, which features everything required for Long Range connectivity, from the temperature, light, pressure, and accelerometer sensors, to the cloud. This is a cloud-based tool set for managing the latest generation of devices, also including a Conduit MTCDT-247A Gateway with LoRa MTAC card and all the necessary accessories and network needs, as well as a LoRa module, development kits, and a LoRa site survey box. 

 

How to implement MultiTech gateways? 

Most of the time, we just search for proof of concept or non-commercial use devices. For this we recommend our cloud-based ThingPark Community platform which is free to use. ThingPark Community connects the LoRaWAN ecosystems, and the potential offered by the Industrial IoT, allowing you to connect up to 3 different gateways and 50 devices or ‘things” for free on one account, also offering online documentation and blogs on all the latest information. 

This option allows the ThingPark team to pre-configure and provision your gateway(s) on ThingPark Community platform. If you do not already have an account on this platform, the ThingPark team will create one for you, using your registered email address. 

If your aim is commercial operations,  ThingPark Enterprise SaaS platform or ThingPark Enterprise are recommended. TPE SaaS is georedundant, fully managed 24/7 and provides SLAs. ThingPark Enterprise (TPE) OCP is specifically designed for enterprises seeking to make IoT projects safe, fast, and simple. 

TPE is a full on-premises platform, available both in standalone or high-availability deployment modes. It offers the ability to gather, analyze, and transform raw data into insights to maximize industrial processes, and is applicable to any IoT use case, allowing companies to grow as they progress in their digital transformation. An active subscription is needed to use TPE SaaS or TPE OCP.
