Telit, an Internet of Things (IoT) company, recently announced that IDY has selected its FN980m 5G data card module for the new IDY 5G iR730B enterprise edge gateway solution.
IDY is reportedly focusing on reliable wireless technology in the growing IoT and M2M market, and the company said it expects 5G to bring new services and greater convenience, so it will offer the new solution to existing and new applications that could benefit from the advantages of 5G networks.
The FN980m reportedly supports all major sub-6 GHz frequency bands, and the 5G data card supports the Qualcomm QTM525 mmWave antenna module for near-the-ground low power indoor and outdoor applications.
“The iR730B is designed specifically for high-speed communication, inheriting the DNA of the highly-reliable iR720B gateway, which made it possible to install advanced applications,” said Kazuaki Honda, President and CEO, IDY. “In addition to the expanded 40 mm x 52 mm module bay allowing it to take a 5G data card, it offers all the previous functions, including GbE wired LAN, RS232/485, and DIO while maintaining the same size. The dual core CPU allows for edge computing alongside 5G.”
