Industrial grade IoT gateway and edge controller provides flexible communications and simple management to enable Internet of Things applications
Columbia, MD – September 29, 2014 – Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products and systems, today announces the ReliaGATE 10-20, an industrial grade multi-service gateway and edge controller designed with flexible connectivity options to enable Internet of Things applications. Based on the Freescale i.MX 6Solo processor optimized for high performance and energy efficient processing, the ReliaGATE 10-20 Mutli-Service Gateway is a rugged smart device that provides communications, computation power and a simplified application framework for IoT and Machine to Machine (M2M) platform integration and services applications.
The ReliaGATE 10-20 includes Eurotech’s Everyware Software Framework (ESF) device-resident application development framework to program devices quickly and extend capabilities further including remote device management. ESF is a commercial, fully supported application framework which offers a Java/OSGi-based container for M2M applications running in multi-service gateways and smart edge devices. ESF builds on Kura, an Eclipse Foundation project that is also part of the Eclipse Open IoT Stack for Java, a set of Java frameworks and OSGi services that make it easy to connect and manage IoT solutions.
“IoT projects can be extremely complicated, and our work with both commercial and open-source solutions aims to speed development and help customers build better applications to bring data from the field to the enterprise,” said Robert Andres, Chief Marketing Officer, Eurotech. “The multi-service gateway approach simplifies complex systems and minimizes development risk. Our newest gateway, the ReliaGATE 10-20, is a reliable, flexible platform designed to shorten time to market and make quick use of valuable data.”
The ReliaGATE 10-20 comes ready to connect sensors, actuators and devices to the business enterprise with a powerful network routing software application, simple web-based configuration tools and a variety of connectivity options including integrated support for Cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 802.15.4/Zigbee. The ReliaGATE 10-20 also includes interfaces for wired connectivity such as Dual Gigabit Ethernet, CANBus, up to four serial ports and three USB ports.
“Eurotech adds to their portfolio of IoT gateways with the ReliaGATE 10-20 built on Freescale’s i.MX 6 series technology,” said Rajeev Kumar, Director of Worldwide Marketing and Business Development for Freescale's Microcontrollers business. “With significant computational capabilities as well as low power operations, ReliaGATE 10-20 is suitable for industrial IoT services and solutions ranging from building automation and fleet management to energy and medical applications where performance, reliability and security are non-negotiable requirements.”
The ReliaGATE 10-20 is natively integrated with Eurotech’s Everyware Cloud M2M integration platform through a flexible and scalable infrastructure and a number of cloud-based services. The ReliaGATE 10-20 is also easily integrated with Eurotech’s ReliaCELL 10-20modular cellular adapter, making the gateway immediately deployable on different mobile carrier networks.
