In a recent release, Multi-Tech Systems, a global supplier of M2M and IoT communication solutions, has introduced its mPower Edge Intelligence, a new embedded software offering that builds on its application enablement platform, to deliver programmability, network flexibility, enhanced security and manageability for scalable Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions.

mPower represents the unification and evolution of the MultiTech smart router and gateway firmware platforms. In addition to ongoing support of the current feature-sets, MultiConnect rCell 100 Series customers reportedly now have access to the programmability of the industry-leading MultiConnect Conduit gateway, while gateway customers can enjoy the additional security features currently available on the rCell.

mPower Edge Intelligence is designed to aid in integration with a variety of popular upstream IoT platforms to streamline edge-to-cloud data management and analytics, while also providing the programmability and processing capability to execute critical tasks at the edge of the network to reduce latency; control network and cloud services costs, and ensure core functionality – even in instances when network connectivity may not be available.

In response to evolving customer security requirements, mPower Edge Intelligence incorporates a host of new security features including signed firmware validation, enhanced firewall and VPN settings, secure authentication and more.

“When it comes to adding value and making smart choices, particularly related to security, the ability to make decisions at the edge of Industrial IoT networks is an absolute must,” said Prasad Kandikonda, VP, Engineering, MultiTech. “mPower Edge Intelligence reflects what we’ve learned from more than five years delivering smart devices to a variety of industries and applications that require device programmability, security and dependable upgrade paths across our product lines.”
