Belden Cellular Router Offers Secure, Reliable Remote Access
|New Hirschmann Industrial Cellular Router OWL 3G Combines Routing, Security and Remote Access Functionalities in Single Box Solution
St. Louis, Missouri - December 1, 2015 - Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has announced a new solution from Hirschmann that combines routing with optimal security - the Industrial Cellular Router OWL 3G. This single box solution provides secure and reliable remote access in an increasingly connected world. Network problems can be solved quickly, and support costs can be drastically reduced with the OWL 3G's remote access capabilities.
"This routing and security solution delivers a cost-effective option for industrial network reliability, enables a high level of customization, and best of all - customers can easily install and deploy it with very little product knowledge," said Khachig Arjinian, wireless product manager at Belden. "Customers also won't have to worry about network uptime or protection because redundancy provided by dual SIM cards guarantees the highest network availability, and best-in-class integrated firewall protection addresses growing security concerns."
The OWL 3G is designed for machine builders, system integrators and automation vendors in search of easy, cost-effective ways to monitor and troubleshoot machines without going on-site or creating connections where wired networks are not feasible. The router is perfectly suited for use in power transmission and distribution, and machine building settings. Due to the OWL 3G's ability to securely and reliably connect an Ethernet network to the Internet, it is also a key solution for companies looking to take advantage of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies.
The new two-in-one router is equipped with two Ethernet 10/100 ports and two SIM card holders, which back up communication in mobile operator networks and provide failover to one another, enhancing overall network availability and security.
The OWL 3G is currently available for the EMEA and APAC markets.
