Encore Networks Category M1 Routers First to be Certified on Verizon’s 4G LTE Network
Chantilly, VA – January 4, 2017 – Encore Networks Class M1 EN-400™ router has been certified compliant for use on the Verizon 4G LTE Category M1 (CATM) network. After rigorous compatibility testing, the EN-400™ is the first router to be certified on the first commercially launched LTE CAT M1 service in the US with planned nationwide coverage by the end of Q1 2017.
LTE CAT M1 provides a low-cost option for cellular connectivity and offers the low bandwidth perfect for many IoT M2M verticals. CAT M1 competes in low-data connectivity markets such as ATM’s, refrigeration, HVAC, point-of-sale, kiosk, sensor, and remote monitoring and control devices. It provides enhanced network coverage, including improved in building/in-ground, and at lower power requirements than current LTE offered services.
As the first commercial Class M1 router to launch on Verizon’s LTE network, the EN-400™ is specifically designed for low bandwidth IoT applications requiring lower cost cellular connectivity. Additionally, the EN-400™ provides a migration path for customers with existing 2G deployments at the end of their serviceable life that want to take advantage of the nation’s largest, most reliable LTE network. The EN-400™ also delivers increased cyber security features such as VPNs, firewalls and encryption, including IPsec, AES, and 3DES not previously available in low bandwidth markets.
