congatec: highly flexible IoT gateway system

congatec introduces its flexible IoT gateway solution, which is application ready and easily customizable for rapid field deployment. The congatec IoT gateway offers extreme levels of flexibility in terms of processing performance and software integration, able to host up to 8 wireless antennas that can be connected to 3 mini PCI Express slots and 6 internal USB based slots for wireless and wired connectivity modules. Customized system designs are also available upon request. OEMs utilizing the conga IoT gateway system benefit from a pre-configured, pre-certified IoT gateway that can easily connect a wide range of heterogeneous sensors and systems to cloud-based services.

The wireless connectivity of the congatec IoT gateway system is extremely scalable: 6 internal USB ports and 3 miniPCIe slots are available and able to support LTE 3GPP modems, 2x WI-FI, 2x LAN with PoE and PROFINET features, low power BlueTooth (BTLE) and 6LoWPAN. Other low power wide area networks including LORA, 3GPP, LTE-MTC, Sigfox or UNB can be supported upon customer request. This allows for maximum flexibility in supporting all major IoT connectivity requirements. The housing is equipped to mount up to 8 antennas supporting multiple wireless standards in parallel, while enhancing signal quality by utilizing antenna diversity. The small size (200x230x40mm³) metal housing is certified to IP53 protection class for outdoor applications.

In order to deliver optimal and rapid IoT gateway designs, congatec developed the system to support scalable computing performance utilizing Qseven modules, which range from the NXP single-core i.MX6 processor up to a quad core Intel Pentium CPU. The gateway also supports the upcoming next generation of Intel Atom processors (“Apollo Lake”) for deployment in emerging IoT gateway and edge computing application scenarios, up to and including high availability fog computing systems.

The congatec embedded board support packages cover all major operating systems – including Windows 10 IoT – to enable easier software integration. The congatec IoT gateway system also supports all the features of congatec’s embedded board controller, which are a must for reliable IoT applications. Amongst other functions, the congatec feature set enables secure boot, management of Multi-Master I²C Bus, Multi Stage Watchdog, non-volatile User Data Storage, Manufacturing and Board Information, Board Statistics, as well as Power Loss Control.
