Congatec introduces its flexible IoT gateway solution. This new, highly flexible IoT gateway system is application ready and easily customizable for rapid field deployment.

The congatec IoT gateway offers extreme levels of flexibility in terms of processing performance and software integration, able to host up to 8 wireless antennas that can be connected to 3 mini PCI Express slots and 6 internal USB based slots for wireless and wired connectivity modules. Customized system designs are also available upon request.

OEMs utilizing the conga IoT gateway system benefit from a pre-configured, pre-certified IoT gateway that can easily connect a wide range of heterogeneous sensors and systems to cloud-based services. Target uses include Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications such as smart cities, smart agriculture, connected homes and vehicles, digital signage systems and other IoT applications.

congatec’s CEO Jason Carlson explains its application-ready-system strategy for IoT gateways: “The large and fast growing IoT market is well served by congatec’s traditional embedded computer boards and module products, but OEMs are increasingly demanding IoT gateways that are complete, application-ready systems. To meet this growing need, congatec has designed a highly flexible and configurable gateway system that can be optimized to meet a wide variety of specific application demands. Together with our embedded design and manufacturing services, we can now meet any specific IoT gateway requirement.”

As well as the engineering and production of optimized IoT solutions, congatec‘s embedded design and manufacturing service also includes certification services, an increasingly essential element of deploying wireless technologies and edge devices that connect to carrier grade infrastructures.

The wireless connectivity of the congatec IoT gateway system is extremely scalable: 6 internal USB ports and 3 miniPCIe slots are available and able to support LTE 3GPP modems, 2x WI-FI, 2x LAN with PoE and PROFINET features, low power BlueTooth (BTLE) and 6LoWPAN.

Other low power wide area networks including LORA, 3GPP, LTE-MTC, Sigfox or UNB can be supported upon customer request. This allows for maximum flexibility in supporting all major IoT connectivity requirements. The housing is equipped to mount up to 8 antennas supporting multiple wireless standards in parallel, while enhancing signal quality by utilizing antenna diversity. The small size (200x230x40mm) metal housing is certified to IP53 protection class for outdoor applications.
