Back to School?  

This year independent school districts, colleges and universities find themselves on the front edge of defining our "new normal" for the current pandemic and beyond. Balancing the health and safety of students, faculty and staff with their mission to optimize educational outcomes for students of all ages and backgrounds. 

CBRS technology enables distance learning to students who otherwise might be disconnected from critical education resources. MultiTech is here to help.

Watch this introduction to private cellular and CBRS featuring Vice President of Strategic Development Daniel Quant.

Learn how OnGo CBRS networks also support industrial networks in the energy sector with this panel discussion from ENTELEC 2020.  


Solution Spotlight: MultiConnect rCell 100 for Hazardous Locations

MultiConnect® rCell 100 Series LTE Category 4 industrial routers are now certified for safe use in potentially explosive environments. Developed in response to customer requirements to meet U.S. and E.U. guidelines to control the risk of dangerous substances igniting, these models are designed to protect property and prevent loss of life. They are ideal for applications in oil and gas production and other environments where safety standards are beyond that of standard cellular router deployments.

Customer Spotlight: Tank Monitoring in the Oil Field      

Chevron deployed their own LoRaWAN network to the San Joaquin Valley with help from MultiTech. 

“In the end, the economics were a no-brainer, so we just did it,” said Jonathan Polly, Digital Surface Advisor at Chevron. “We achieved a significant return on investment (ROI) and reduced drive time, while optimizing the supply chain and using easily deployable technology. In general, LoRaWAN is an order of magnitude less costly than traditional radios and wireless, so we're looking at other use cases for it, such as routine operating duties."

MultiTech in the News

5G wireless for industrial use. 
Industrial communications is adding 5G to wireless protocols used. Control Engineering turned to Daniel Quant for answers about 5G progress, 5G benefits, 5G adoption challenges and 5G standard.
See what he had to say.

Wireless sensor combines capabilities: Vibration sensor merges with LoRaWAN gateway for continuous monitoring and predictive maintenance.
Read how Yokagawa paired its LoRaWAN-enabled sensors with MultiTech Conduit® gateways to “allow equipment, processes and plants to use continuous monitoring and predictive analytics to detect issues sooner, and enable their operations and maintenance personnel to collaborate, so they can be more efficient with their resources.”

It's happening. Are you ready?

As the deadline approaches to transition away from legacy 2G and 3G networks in the U.S. and abroad, we wanted to remind you of some useful information to help you plan a seamless upgrade. Check out our transition page here or learn your options with this informational video.
