Anybus Wireless Bolt IoT

The Anybus Wireless Bolt IoT gives devices, machines and equipment an Internet connection. This solution uses the latest LTE standards NB-IoT and CAT-M1 and fits both stationary and mobile equipment. These new LTE standards are so called LP-WAN technologies (Low Power Wide Area Network) adapted for the new IoT use cases. This means Low Power consumption, Low Bandwidth (25-300 kbit/s), Good geographical coverage and Lower Cost. 

The innovative hardware form-factor with its M50 throughhole mount enables effective access to good cellular connectivity, without losing coverage due to long and lossy antenna cable. The Bolt IoT is up-to-date with the latest 4G LTE standards NB-IoT and CAT-M1 and, to be globally effective, it uses 2G (GPRS/EDGE) fallback enabling deployment almost anywhere in the world.
