Ramp Up the Security and Efficiency of Industrial Networks with the OnCell G3150A-LTE

Brea, California, February, 2017—Wireless connections bring convenience to industrial networks, but they also increase security risks, especially during data transmissions. Moxa’s new LTE cellular gateway, the OnCell G3150A-LTE, enables high-speed data transmission without compromising network security. The OnCell Central Manager tool extends the capabilities of the cellular gateway to provide fast deployment as well as powerful monitoring and security functions.

In line with the products of the OnCell series, this LTE cellular gateway is designed for rugged operating environments, including remote locations. Dual SIMs together with the GuaranLink function, which automatically re-registers the device with a base station to establish a new cellular connection when the signal goes down, ensure connection continuity. The built-in power isolation and dual power inputs protect the device against EMC and ensure reliable connectivity. The LTE gateway can operate reliably at extreme temperatures, which makes it ideal for outdoor deployments.

Enhanced Security to Reduce Data Transmission Risks
To prevent cyber attacks on your network and block unauthorized access of critical data over the cellular network, Moxa’s new LTE cellular gateway provides secure VPN communication capabilities in both master and client modes. Support for site-to-site security protocols, such as OpenVPN, GRE, and IPSec, help you easily establish secure connections between two networks. In addition, the gateway complies with the technical requirements of the IEC 62443-4-2 cybersecurity standard to provide enhanced security.

Designed for Efficiency in Long-Distance Applications
A cellular network is a perfect solution for device connectivity in hard-to-reach areas where wiring is expensive or complicated. However, managing remote industrial devices continues to be a challenge for most operators. Moxa’s OnCell Central Manager tool, available at no cost with the OnCell cellular gateway, facilitates fast deployment through mass configuration of a large number of cellular devices, and remote device maintenance. Network operators can use this tool to remotely upgrade firmware on devices and rectify faulty devices by sending SMS control commands to remotely reboot the gateways. The cellular gateway provides built-in interfaces for both Ethernet and serial connections, which is convenient for implementing converged networks efficiently and with ease.
