MISSISSAUGA, ON: Skkynet Cloud Systems, known for their real-time cloud information systems, announces that through collaboration with NetComm Wireless, Skkynet’s Embedded Toolkit (ETK) is now available for installation on NetComm’s NTC-6200 series of gateways for wireless M2M connectivity, enabling industrial automation engineers and managers to establish secure, real-time connections between remote devices and existing control systems.

“Combining NetComm’s NTC-6200 platform with Skkynet’s Secure Cloud Service means remote devices in virtually any location can now connect directly and securely to the cloud, enabling real-time monitoring, control, networking, and Big Data collection at a far lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than previously thought possible,” says  Paul Thomas, President of Skkynet. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with NetComm Wireless to provide their customers and ours with this high-value solution.”

The NTC-6200 series of wireless routers connects to worldwide 3G networks at speeds of up to 14.4Mbps. They can be deployed in any location to allow remote access, monitoring and control of connected devices with no dependence on a landline.  Featuring Ethernet, serial (RS232/422/485), USB 2.0 and Modbus TCP connectivity, the NTC-6200 series can interface with a diverse range of equipment used in a wide variety of vertical applications. Optional features include PoE (Power over Ethernet), Zigbee support, a built-in GPS, and 3 multipurpose I/O ports.

Skkynet’s Secure Cloud Service provides secure, end-to-end bidirectional connectivity between the NTC-6200 series routers and end users at all levels, from operators and plant engineers to managers, analysts, and customers. The service is capable of handling over 50,000 data changes per second per client, at speeds just a few milliseconds over Internet latency. Secure by design, it requires no VPN, no open firewall ports, no special programming, and no additional hardware.
