Inseego Expands Industrial IoT Product Family With Gigabit Edge Routers

Inseego Corp., a provider of 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) device-to-cloud solutions, has announced additions to its Skyus Industrial IoT (IIoT) portfolio: the Skyus 300 and Skyus 500 gigabit edge routers, powered by MiFi iQ technology. Both are built to futureproof and simplify complex deployments, the company reports, while lowering the cost of connecting critical remote and mobile assets for industrial, public-safety, transportation and infrastructure applications.

The Skyus 300 and Skyus 500 are IIoT routers designed to provide secure LTE Advanced Pro peak speeds of up to 1.2 Gbps, in a rugged design that conforms with the IP64 and MIL-STD 810G military-grade specifications. The Skyus 500 is intended for high-performance use cases, such as in-vehicle connectivity, the company indicates, while the configurable Skyus 300 is suitable for tight space constraints, such as in outdoor kiosks or remote infrastructure enclosures.

Power-over-Ethernet offers a power source for external devices that require a network connection, such as camera systems. The routers' dust-proof and water-resistant housing is suitable for such use cases as smart agriculture, remote oil and gas operations, and in-vehicle connectivity. According to the company, the devices are designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions, including -40 degrees to +70 degrees Celsius in operating mode, -40 degrees to +85 degrees Celsius in storage mode and extreme humidity.

"Today's industrial enterprise applications require more speed and bandwidth than ever before," said Ashish Sharma, Inseego's EVP of IoT and mobile solutions, in a prepared statement. "Our new Skyus 300 and 500 edge routers meet that challenge with the latest Cat 18 LTE technology and allow our customers to operate securely and reliably in challenging industrial environments—with a return on investment unmatched by competing solutions. We continue to evolve our Skyus portfolio to meet our customers' needs with the latest 4G LTE -A Pro technologies. In addition to delivering proven gigabit LTE speeds, these solutions support the CBRS and LAA bands, giving our customers access to significant spectrum and bandwidth when available and activated within service provider networks."

Commercial availability of the Skyus 500 is slated to commence in April 2019, with commercial availability of the Skyus 300 set to begin in May.
