For outdoor critical infrastructure operations, NB-N500421A-US transports process monitoring and control data from the remote sensor back to the operations center supporting real-time automated decision making and on-going analytics. Covering large geographic areas, hard to reach terrain and challenging spectrum environments, cnReach delivers reliable, secure connectivity to the petrochemical, electric utility, water/wastewater/stormwater and transportation industries. cnReach eases the migration to modern networks by combining legacy serial and analog/digital I/O with TCP/IP and Ethernet connectivity. Fully integrated into a 'single pane-of-glass' management platform (cnMaestro) cnReach helps bridge the IT/OT sides of complex organizations. Combining cnReach's licensed and unlicensed narrow-band radios with Cambium Networks' broadband technologies, industrial organizations are delivering end-to-end industrial Internet of Things solutions today.
