Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. has introduced the MultiConnectxDot, a secure endpoint module to communicate over LoRaWAN networks.
The xDot joins the MultiTech family of LoRaWAN communications devices which also includes the programmable MultiConnect Conduitgateway, MultiConnect mDotmodules and MultiConnect mCardgateway accessory cards. This latest addition to the LoRa product line features a compact, surface-mount form factor, mbed enabled tamper proof processor and very low power consumption for extended battery life.
For enhanced security, the xDot incorporates a hardware tamper resistant secure element from Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, which delivers secure key storage for AES-128 encryption used in LoRaWAN networks as well as secure applications capabilities.
Security is of paramount concern for the Internet of Things, says Daniel Quant, vice president of Product Management, MultiTech. By building a secure element into the MultiConnect xDot, we are removing yet another hurdle to adoption. By doing so in a LoRa module, we deliver the ultimate endpoint device delivering long-range connectivity, low power consumption, embedded tamper proof intelligence and industry-leading security all in a low-cost package.
