with industrial LTE cellular gateways
The widespread adoption of the IIoT has led to a large number of devices being brought online. The need for centralized management of devices and the mandate to improve operational efficiency is driving the automation of communication networks, especially for long-distance communication. However, industrial operators have to overcome several challenges to establish effective long-distance communication. Among these challenges, cybersecurity, network reliability, and communication between networks are the top concerns. In addition, one has to consider wiring and maintenance issues. Moxa’s new LTE gateway, the OnCell G3150A-LTE, coupled with the OnCell Central Manager (OCM) tool brings you an efficient way to implement high-performance long-distance network applications, with ease. The LTE gateway is easy to configure and comes with features that secure your communication channels, enable smart remote management, and provide reliable connections.
To prevent attacks from malicious persons or applications and strengthen the security of critical data over a cellular network, the OnCell G3150A-LTE is designed with the following features:
Complies with the following cybersecurity standards to provide features such as login security, multi-level account management, interface/IP/network access management, and import/export encryption, thereby reducing cybersecurity vulnerabilities and risks.
*Certification process is expected to be completed by early 2017
The OnCell G3150A-LTE gateway is provided with built-in serial and Ethernet ports to enable easy connectivity with a variety of field devices. In addition to saving hardware costs, this connection flexibility simplifies device configuration.
The OnCell G3150A-LTE gateway supports the OnCell Central Manager (OCM) tool to make network management more efficient and easy.
To increase operational reliability in harsh industrial environments, the OnCell G3150A-LTE, with its industrial-grade design and support for leading redundancy technology, is built to provide stability to your industrial applications.
Configure devices individually or in groups, and update firmware easily with just a few clicks. OnCell Central Manager can also remotely update firmware and configure devices, making mass deployment of devices quick and easy.
Looking for a cost-effective way to enable public domain access to your private IP network? OnCell Central Manager provides a private-IP solution at no extra cost.
Quick sorting and filtering of devices based on various criteria such as IP address and MAC address, as well as device status visualization, provide operators with an efficient and easy way to check device statuses.
The RSSI history of a device provides further information for troubleshooting device issues. You can review the past RSSI record of a device and check the system log to identify if an unstable connection is caused by the base station or the OnCell device itself.
RESTful APIs allow users to customize device status information and display it across different platforms. OnCell Central Manager APIs provide a customized way to monitor devices across multiple platforms.
OnCell Central Manager uses a third-party cloud service to send SMS control commands to OnCell devices to remotely reboot, initiate data connections, and perform firmware upgrades.
OnCell Central Manager allows the administrator to assign different roles, give each account various access levels, and monitor the current status. Each account can be assigned different access rights to the various groups that are created.
By using the flexible device grouping function, operators can organize OnCell devices into different groups for easy monitoring of device statuses for different applications.
To prevent attacks from malicious persons or applications, OnCell Central Manager provides an IP block list that allows administrators to block communication from specific IP addresses. Some OnCell devices can form OpenVPN tunnels to further enhance security during communication.
Cellular networks, in most cases, are located in remote hard-to-reach areas that are spread over different geographical locations. OnCell Central Manager (OCM), Moxa's powerful OnCell device management tool, ensures effective remote management of industrial devices. The OCM tool extends the capabilities* of your OnCell cellular gateway to provide fast deployment as well as powerful monitoring and security.
* Some of the OCM tool functions will be available only with version 2.3 of the tool, which is scheduled for release in early 2017.
