Verizon and Encore Networks offer secure M2M solutions for converting legacy protocols for cellular transport



By Telecomlead Team : Mobile major Verizon
Wireless and Encore Networks announced the availability of
Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions, and legacy protocol conversion to IP over
the private, secure Verizon Wireless 2G and 3G networks.


“M2M is experiencing tremendous growth as
it becomes widely adopted across many different industries. By working with
Verizon Wireless, we are able to execute on our business vision and deploy the
right M2M solutions,” said Peter
Madsen, president and CEO of Encore Networks.


Both companies will offer Encore’s
entire BANDIT line of commercial and
ruggedized IP+Legacy enterprise routers, including the C2C, a
low-cost, embedded replacement of Plain Old Telephone Services (POTS) copper
lines with advanced IP applications over cellular.


Encore‘s C2C router
provides IP interworking, supporting analog modem interfaces or Ethernet
connections in a single box solution.


The C2C was designed for legacy
applications that currently depend on POTS analog telephone lines terminating
on customer premise equipment with embedded analog modems. Customers can remove
their dependence on copper lines currently being phased out and limited in
services by adopting IP cellular infrastructure.


Encore will also market
the BANDIT family of rugged enterprise routers designed for SCADA and
other harsh network environments. It is use full in locations where
environmental controls are limited such as power distribution sub-stations,
refineries and transportation applications. The BANDIT ensures
secure, high throughput data networking connections directly to the Verizon Wireless cellular


“Many enterprises currently are looking to
shift their existing copper lines and migrate to a more reliable advanced IP
technology. With their M2M centric technology, Encore Networks has the right
approach to enable a seamless conversion and management of the connections,”
said Michael Toto, director – enterprise and government partnerships, Verizon


Encore Networks recently announced that it formed  a
strategic partnership with Machine-to-Machine (M2M) integrator and distributor,
Digital Highway Wireless Solutions.
