May 17, 2012 (Sydney): NetComm Wireless Limited (ASX: NTC) today announced the addition of the NTC-40 Series WiFi and Voice M2M Routers to its M2M product portfolio. Designed to support the remote operation, monitoring and maintenance of machines and equipment, the new NTC-40 series features WiFi and Voice capabilities extending its M2M applications to a broad range of industries including health, security, transport, financial services and utilities.

NetComm Wireless' 40-Series M2M Routers address the growing global need for efficient and cost-effective data collection, analysis and remote management over wireless networks. The 40-Series Routers create reliable point-to-point or point-to-multi-point connections for retail payments, in-vehicle wireless hotspots and other M2M applications that require WiFi and Ethernet connectivity. The NTC-40WV model offers the added benefit of circuit switched voice connectivity for complete landline replacement.

The NTC-40 features a powerful processor which delivers optimal performance and its embedded Linux OS and Software Development Kit (SDK) offering users the capability to install custom firmware to the onboard flash memory via the programming interface. This open management platform provides a real point of difference to customers who require custom application integration into their own system. The device also features built in VPN clients to ensure a secure connection over a public mobile network.

"Our new flagship M2M products support countless uses and opportunities spanning diverse industries and applications. As traditionally unconnected devices fast become connected, we are pleased to have developed the technology needed to advance significant new application possibilities," said Brett Stevens NetComm Wireless CTO.

Designed for rugged deployments in harsh environments and unmanned locations, the NTC-40W and NTC-40WV devices seamlessly integrate with existing applications for undisrupted 3G wide-area-network (WAN) communications in any conditions. The industrial-grade fixed wireless data Routers are housed in a solid metal casing for extended temperature tolerance and feature: a WiFi access point; Ethernet connectivity; powerful processors; flexible power options; GPS support; remote diagnostics; firmware upgrade capabilities; high-performance antennas and wireless security.
