congatec introduces its flexible IoT gateway solution. This new IoT gateway system is an application ready and easily customizable for rapid field deployment. It offers extreme levels of flexibility in terms of processing performance and software integration, able to host up to 8 wireless antennas.

Benefits

OEMs utilizing the IoT gateway system benefit from a pre-configured, pre-certified IoT gateway that can easily connect a wide range of heterogeneous sensors and systems to cloud-based services. Target uses include Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications such as smart cities, smart agriculture, connected homes and vehicles, digital signage systems and other applications.

Wireless connectivity 

The wireless connectivity of the congatec IoT gateway system is extremely scalable: 6 internal USB ports and 3 miniPCIe slots are available and able to support LTE 3GPP modems, 2x WI-FI, 2x LAN with PoE and PROFINET features, low power BlueTooth and 6LoWPAN. The housing is equipped to mount up to 8 antennas supporting multiple wireless standards in parallel, while enhancing signal quality by utilizing antenna diversity. The small size metal housing is certified to IP53 protection class for outdoor applications.

Gateway designs

In order to deliver optimal and rapid IoT gateway designs, congatec developed the system to support scalable computing performance utilizing Qseven modules, which range from the NXP single-core i.MX6 processor up to a quad core Intel Pentium CPU. The gateway also supports the upcoming next generation of Intel Atom processors for deployment in emerging IoT gateway and edge computing application scenarios, including high availability fog computing systems.

Other functions

The congatec embedded board support packages cover all major operating systems to enable easier software integration. It also supports all the features of congatec’s embedded board controller. Amongst other functions, congatec feature set enables secure boot, management of Multi-Master I²C Bus, Multi Stage Watchdog, non-volatile User Data Storage, Manufacturing and Board Information, Board Statistics, as well as Power Loss Control.
