Issue 2 2021 IT infrastructure, Industrial (Industry), Products

As 2G and 3G networks phase out around the world, the Gemalto DGL61-W USB device gateway offers a simple and powerful solution for retrofitting existing IoT applications while providing seamless evolution to LTE Cat. 1. The USB 2.0 dongle provides out-of-the-box 4G connectivity with 2G/3G fallback for global coverage from a single SKU. In addition, power over USB ensures a long lifespan while a built-in antenna and optional wall mounting provide simple installation and superior RF performance.

With its rugged industrial design, extended temperature ranges and optimised speeds of up to 10 Mbps download and 5 Mbps uplink, the Gemalto DGL61-W is ideal for vending, kiosks, digital signage, payment terminals, ATMs and eHealth applications. The USB LTE Cat. 1 technology quickly connects industrial applications with very little integration or approval effort. It provides a fast and effective method to update legacy equipment, providing a bridge to evolving IoT technologies and capabilities.

Built-in remote lifecycle management services ensure the gateway is up to date, and allow remote configuration and connectivity diagnostics for the lifetime of the device, no matter where it is deployed. An embedded SIM can’t be removed or tampered with, which strengthens security. Additionally, it authenticates devices, encrypts data and with subscription management solution, it securely manages connections to cellular networks across the lifecycle of the device.

A powerful Java ME 3.2 embedded system offers enhanced processing power, smooth and fast integration with applications and easy and secure device maintenance. A proven security concept, it is capable of on-device debugging as well as multi-threading programming and program execution.
