OccamSmart Releases Industry First mPCIe Smart Gateway Card for LoRa-Based Networks at Mobile World Congress 2018

OccamSmart showcases its new line of smart solutions for LPWANs at the 2018 GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, including world’s first available mPCIe LoRa Smart Gateway Card.

BARCELONA, Spain. –  February 26, 2018 – OccamSmart – Occam Technology Group’s family of LPWAN-focused IoT devices, introduces world’s first mPCIe Smart Gateway Card for LoRa-based networks at the 2018 GSMA Mobile World Congress, and current availability for purchase.

The event features more than 108,000 attendees and executives representing at least 200 countries, and is recognized as the world’s largest mobile industry exhibition. During the exposition, Occam Technology Group will be introducing the world’s first mPCIe Smart Gateway Card for LoRa-based networks as part of its OccamSmart family of LPWAN-focused IoT products.

OccamSmart’s mPCIe Smart Gateway Card differentiates itself from other LoRa-based mPCIe gateway cards via the use of a USB command protocol and the inclusion of a dedicated microcontroller. This allows offloading of low-level radio-specific operations from the host device to the gateway card itself, increasing message throughput. The card enables a variety of configurations by offering either USB or UART interfaces on the mPCIe connector.

Occam Technology Group’s Chief Technology Officer Raymond Carr explained : “the small footprint and simple USB command protocol on our mPCIe Smart Gateway Card provides the quick development cycle necessary in today’s competitive life-cycle environment for your pico, standard, embedded, or private network gateways, regardless of size. All radio setup, communications, and message control is handled by the onboard microcontroller, freeing you to focus on what matters most, your LoRa-based or LoRaWAN network design.”

OccamSmart’s mPCIe Smart Gateway Card is the latest in a series of products released under the OccamSmart name by Occam Technology Group, which have included a 8-Channel RF Concentrator for LoRa-based networks as well as an Uplink Protocol Analyzer extension to the popular RF tool Wireshark.

The mPCIe Smart Gateway Cards, as well as the rest of OccamSmart’s product offerings, are being showcased at the LoRa Alliance Ecosystem booth during the Mobile World Congress event, and are available at occamsmart.com or by contacting sales@occamsmart.com
