MX-230 M1

MX-230 M1

Industrial M2M Router (Cat M1)

The BEC MX-230 M1 Industrial M2M Router is a low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) enabled device. It supports both Cat.NB1 (NB-IoT) and Cat.M1 (LTE-M) technologies, designed to optimize range and service coverage for low-cost, low-bandwidth, and low-power IoT/M2M communication.

The MX-230 M1 is a compact and rugged design, ready to be deployed in any harsh environment and hard-to-reach areas. The device features two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces with configurable LAN/WAN options, an RS-232 serial interface for OOBM or serial device connectivity over IP,  Active GPS, ,and advanced software management tools.
