Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. has announced the availability of its popular MultiConnect® eCell in Canada from Novotech Technologies.

The MultiConnect eCell expands MultiTech’s comprehensive portfolio of cellular connectivity products optimised for M2M (machine-to-machine) communications. Easy to install and manage, the MultiConnect eCell is ideal for failover, out-of-band management or primary internet connection over cellular.

Designed with simplicity of use in mind, and for smart applications that already support networking processes; this device is a quick and simple install ensuring business continuity in retail operations utilising POS terminals and SOHO routers that currently depend on a wired internet connection.

“Its easy set up wizard, bundled antenna, power supply and Ethernet cable, make installation a snap,” said Alex Romero-Perez, product manager at MultiTech. “With FCC, IC, PTCRB and carrier certifications, the MultiConnect eCell reduces time to market as well as cost, so users can deploy their solution fast. We are pleased to offer this functionality to the Canadian market.”

Other examples of devices that can benefit from using the MultiConnect eCell are vending machines, kiosks, digital signs, ATM machines and countless other fixed assets that require a reliable, always-on connectivity without disrupting a Local Area Network.

“This product addresses a real need for simple, out-of-box cellular connectivity for applications that have their own built in intelligence,” said Larry Bellehumeur, executive vice president of Sales for Novotech.

“It is a great compliment to the top-selling MultiConnect rCell, which comes with advanced routing and security functionality as well as DeviceHQ device management software. With both products in our portfolio, MultiTech has provided us with a very compelling offer here in Canada.”
