ISRAEL: Connect One has released Nano WiReach MAX-SMT module to support b/g/n WiFi over an industrial temperature range of -30°C to +85°C.
Nano WiReach MAX-SMT offers 3G routing, WiFi client and access-point capabilities. Like its popular predecessor, Nano WiReach MAX-SMT measures 2.0 x 3.7 centimeters (0.8” x 1.45”), allowing for a quick and simple upgrade from WiFi b/g to b/g/n without hardware or software changes.
To maximize connectivity and versatility, Nano WiReach MAX-SMT offers multiple hardware interfaces, extensive firmware, and a full suite of secure Internet protocols for up to eight WiFi users in router or access-point modes. Designers gain immediate, full–featured connectivity without any WiFi driver development or porting, minimizing project development challenges and time to market.
The Nano WiReach MAX-SMT module can also serve as an independent WiFi access point where WiFi infrastructure does not exist. With the module acting as a WiFi access point, customers can connect to and manage their deployed, in-field device via standard WiFi devices, such as iPhones, iPads and other mobile phones and devices.
To ensure complete security, Nano WiReach MAX-SMT offers a highly advanced level of Internet security. The module includes the latest WiFi encryption algorithms (WPA/WPA2, in both PSK and enterprise modes), Internet SSL communication and encryption algorithms. In addition, it acts as an inherent firewall, protecting the embedded application from attacks originating from the Internet.
“The new Nano WiReach MAX-SMT device is the first member of the Nano WiReach family to support the 802.11n WiFi standard,” noted Erez Lev, VP, Sales for Connect One. “We look forward to bringing additional pin- and form-factor-compatible products that will allow our customers to upgrade to the latest technology without design modification and while using the same AT+i command set.”
