The MultiConnect eCell Cellular to Ethernet bridge Honored for Excellence in Innovation

Mounds View, MN, USA – January 5, 2022 –Multi-Tech Systems, Inc., a leading global supplier of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and services, today announced that The MultiConnect® eCell cellular to Ethernet bridge has received a 2021 IoT Excellence Award presented by TMC and Crossfire Media

The 2021 IoT Evolution IoT Excellence Award honors innovative products that support the availability of information being deduced, inferred and directly gathered from sensors, systems and anything else that is supporting better business and personal decisions.

The MultiConnect eCell  bridge adds cellular connectivity to existing wired assets, quickly and easily. It provides wireless failover to prevent network outages to vending machines, kiosks, digital signs, ATM machines and countless other fixed assets that require reliable, always-on connectivity. With 4G-LTE Cat 4, users are not required to sacrifice bandwidth when switching between cellular and Ethernet. The easy set up wizard, bundled antenna, power supply and Ethernet cable make installation simple and is cost-optimized to give users what is needed with minimal complexity in a rugged, aluminum chassis suitable for extreme environments. And with FCC certification, the MultiConnect eCell reduces time to market as well as cost enabling fast deployment.

The newest MultiConnect eCell model is now also available for use on Private LTE OnGo CBRS networks. This newest model has several unique features in comparison to other MultiConnect eCell models:

  • Simple, low-cost connectivity solution for dedicated private networks, neutral host networks, and fixed wireless networks
  • FCC Part 15 and Part 96 authorized end-user device for LTE band 48 and OnGo CBRS Networks
  • Approved interoperability with CBRS base stations and access points

 “The latest MultiTech MultiConnect eCell is among the first industrial IoT devices that offer securely managed after-market Private LTE and CBRS connectivity to a broad range of assets to accelerate enterprise digital transformation today,” said Stefan Lindvall, CEO of MultiTech. “We are proud of the recognition by IoT Evolution and are committed to continue to develop leading IoT products and solutions that help organizations solve problems and increase their revenue streams.”

“It is my pleasure to recognize MultiConnect eCell cellular to Ethernet bridge with an IoT Excellence Award for its excellence in innovation,” said Carl Ford, CEO & Community Developer, Crossfire Media. “As a leader in this rapidly evolving industry, I look forward to seeing MultiTech’s future successes.”
