Business Challenge

Maintaining connectivity can be challenging in industrial and IoT applications. In mobile and remote locations, Wi-Fi is often not practical. In industrial locations, machine vibration can interfere with short-range signals. So it’s no accident that embedded and industrial computer vendors have come to understand that Wi-Fi cannot be the only connectivity option for their devices. 

Logic Supply designs its industrial PCs with integrated cellular connectivity for those times when Wi-Fi isn’t good enough. While this sounds like an easy feature to enable, certification with regulatory bodies and meeting rugged specifications add a complexity that Logic Supply’s customers want to avoid.

Sierra Wireless Industrial IoT Solution

After evaluating offerings from other industry vendors in the market, Logic Supply selected the Sierra Wireless® EM Series of networking modules for 4G LTE-Advanced and LTE networks. 

The industrial-grade M.2 PCI-SIG® standards-based module enables easy integration of wireless on a variety of mobile computing and industrial networking device platforms. The connectorized module provides plug and play connectivity on the world’s fastest LTE networks, providing unprecedented speeds, bandwidth, and network performance.
