New Wi-Fi 6 Module from Ezurio will Tackle Greater Connectivity for IIoT Applications


A few months back, we shared news regarding Ezurio, formerly known as Laird Connectivity. (Those interested can read it in full here.)

The long-story-short version of the company’s rebranding?

Ezurio’s CEO Bill Steinike put it best, saying “At Ezurio, our portfolio of wireless connectivity and processing solutions, along with our secure multi-OS software and accredited wireless testing capabilities, is expanding. Still, quality connectivity is still deeply rooted in our DNA, as is our understanding of customers’ unique challenges. So while our name change may be new, our focus hasn’t changed. Ezurio’s team still leverages decades of experience in product design- development, manufacturing, testing and support to speedily bring your IoT aspirations to life.”

In addition to Ezurio’s System on Modules (SoMs), wireless modules, single-board computers (SBCs), internal antennas and plenty of IoT sensors and gateways, we’ve also covered how the company has devised:

Well, as of just last week, more Ezurio-centric news has come up.

Ezurio has officially announced its Sona NX611, the latest addition to its aforementioned connectivity solutions portfolio; specifically, their series of Wi-Fi 6 modules.

Though the Sona NX611 is, quote, “currently under development and will be in mass production by September of this year,” we do know that it’ll be available in several form factors (depending on specific IoT application demands), and that it’s “small yet rugged, globally certified, easy to integrate and is purpose-built for dependable IIoT connectivity,” Ezurio states.

Furthermore, the Sona NX611 has:

  • Been tested with the NXP family of processors and Ezurio’s Linux Backports for deeper compatibility.
  • An integrated PA (Power Amplifier) and LNA (Low Noise Amplifier) with a 1x1 antenna for secure connectivity, even in harsh RF environments
  • A rich feature that includes 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 and Dual-Mode BT v5.4, a wide industrial operating temperature range, and solder-down options more suitable for ruggedized IoT/IIoT
  • Support for the latest WPA2/WPA3 Enterprise security standards

Ezurio’s Senior Product Manager Andy Ross added how the Sona NX611 “exemplifies our commitment to providing innovations that empower our customers to achieve even the most advanced connectivity goals with true confidence.”
