MultiTech: Industrial Communications Hardware for the Internet of Things

The IoT market has been growing steadily for many years and will continue to do so at a double-digit CAGR for the foreseeable future. Interestingly, as the marketplace becomes more mature, the focus is shifting from discussion of the enabling technologies to a discussion of the business value being enabled. This is a good development, but it can create some confusion about all the different pieces of the stack required to develop, deploy and manage a complete solution. MultiTech, an innovative data communications equipment provider company addresses this issue and provides the actual connectivity hardware to fulfill all communication needs. In addition, the company is committed to helping its customers navigate the entire ecosystem through collaboration with service providers across the entire value chain.
MultiTech designs, develops and manufactures data communications equipment for the industrial Internet of Things—connecting physical assets to business processes to deliver enhanced value. Company’s commitment to quality and service excellence makes its customers to satisfactorily rely on MultiTech products, while the company’s history of innovation ensures its customers to stay ahead of the latest technology in data communication space.

We’re continuing our legacy of firsts with the world’s first commercially deployable LPWA suite of communications devices,” asserts Stefan.
Benefits for MultiTech’s Customers
Sensor data, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and data analysis are rapidly converging, and MultiTech is one of the few IoT companies that has brought these technologies together for decades. Their experience has taught them how to accurately capture and communicate real-time data for optimized business processes in a wide range of industries, in order to:
Make money

  • Create new service offerings by leveraging remote, new and on-demand data
  • Open up new product categories not available before due to lack of timely information
  • Easily improve and optimize your customer experience for repeat sales
  • Reduce reliance on labor-intensive solutions by utilizing device data to identify new revenue-generating

Save money

  • Enhance predictive and preventative maintenance by optimizing site visits
  • Improve process optimization by having the right part at the right time
  • Further automation by leveraging intelligence at the edge
  • Implement exception monitoring by leveraging intelligence at the edge where your assets reside

The company’s goal is to help customers to increase efficiencies wherever possible. Rather than hiring new employees or settling for time-consuming processes, customers can rely on MultiTech to cut their operating costs significantly.

  • Improved worker safety with predictive modeling
  • Easier tracking and reporting on industry-specific regulations
  • Receive peace of mind.

With MultiTech, customers can be certain that their devices are 100% compliant with network regulations.
Growing with Advancement in Technology
The Internet of Things (IoT) has set the IT world on fire with innovative technologies and astonishing growth levels. The rate of data collection has also accelerated markedly in recent years: an IBM Marketing Cloud study claims 90% of the total data in the world was created in just the past two years, at a rate of 2.5 quintillion bytes of data per day.
To support this exponential growth in data collection, new smart connected sensors and assets are being deployed every day. This, in turn, calls for innovations in the machine-to-machine (M2M) and IoT networks which carry the vast flow of data, in order to mitigate the cost and inefficiency of handling data centrally in the cloud. IoT networks of the future must adopt a decentralized architecture in which processing of raw data begins not in the cloud, but at the network edge.
To respond to this need, MultiTech has embedded intelligence into their edge devices to support on-site data processing and response, as appropriate. Even with the potential bandwidth improvements promised by 5G, the combination of AI and IoT will require additional processing overhead and more intensive edge intelligence to manage real-time decision making for industrial applications.
Future Roadmap
MultiTech will continue to be innovation focused on solving our customer’s biggest IoT pain points through a combination of product enhancements, targeted support services and tailored bundled solutions.
