Numerex Corp (NASDAQ:NMRX), a leading provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced the release of nxCONNECT™, a wireless LTE backup service for businesses that depend on high speed internet service for their business connectivity. nxCONNECT ensures the continuity of service by using Numerex’s cellular network service as a backup connection in the event of broadband network outages.
Multiple System Operators (MSOs) and Communications Service Providers (CSPs) face a serious problem when the impact of service interruptions caused by network outages bring their customers’ business to a grinding halt. When broadband services go down, mission critical functions such as point-of-sale (POS), customer service and communications go with it. nxCONNECT ensures that businesses avoid the pain of broadband service outages, delivering a fast, reliable, wireless LTE backup service.
Powered by the nxFAST™ platform and Numerex’s network partnerships with all tier-1 US and global wireless carriers, nxCONNECT consists of a turn-key, completely bundled offering which includes multiple cellular network services, an intelligent router provided by Cradlepoint, and a purpose-built online management portal. The router instantly detects loss of the broadband signal and then seamlessly re-connects using an innovative network selection feature. Upon power-up, this feature checks multiple options and optimizes the connection based on the fastest, most reliable network available. This helps businesses maintain internet speed, up-time, and reliability in the event of a network outage. The user-friendly online portal allows customers to conveniently manage connectivity, get notifications, retrieve reports, and see event activity.
nxCONNECT also has value added service options including inventory and fulfillment services, as well as an easy to use, self-install kit allowing quick customer set-up. To learn more about nxCONNECT, go to numerex.com/featured-products.
