Numerex Announces nxCONNECT LTE Wireless Backup

By Ken Briodagh March 09, 2017

Numerex Corp, a provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, has announced the release of its nxCONNECT, a wireless LTE backup service for businesses that depend on high speed Internet service for their business connectivity. nxCONNECT is designed to ensure the continuity of service by using Numerex's cellular network service as a backup connection in the event of broadband network outages.

Multiple System Operators (MSOs) and Communications Service Providers (CSPs) face a serious problem when service interruptions caused by network outages bring customers’ business to a grinding halt, having a real impact on outcomes. When broadband services go down, mission critical functions such as point-of-sale (POS), customer service and communications go with it. nxCONNECT works to ensure that businesses avoid the pain of broadband service outages, delivering a fast, reliable, wireless LTE backup service.

“We are excited to launch this unique capability to providers of broadband services which allows them to enhance their commercial internet offering with an automatic connectivity backup in the event of a primary service outage,” said Shu Gan, CMO, Numerex. “It brings peace of mind to their customers, knowing that their business will stay connected even if the primary broadband connection goes down. It also brings value-added new service revenue opportunities to these broadband service providers.”

Powered by the nxFAST platform and Numerex’s network partnerships with all tier-1 U.S. and global wireless carriers, nxCONNECT consists of a turn-key, completely bundled offering which includes multiple cellular network services, an intelligent router provided by Cradlepoint, and a purpose-built online management portal.  The router instantly detects loss of the broadband signal and then seamlessly re-connects using an innovative network selection feature.  Upon power-up, this feature checks multiple options and optimizes the connection based on the fastest, most reliable network available.  This helps businesses maintain Internet speed, up-time, and reliability in the event of a network outage. The user-friendly online portal allows customers to conveniently manage connectivity, get notifications, retrieve reports, and see event activity.
