Encore Networks Boosts its VPN Product Line by Unveiling a Temperature Hardened Version of the C2C™ Router


Hardened C2C™ Router Expands on Rugged, Mission Critical Copper-to-Cellular M2M and SCADA Applications

Chantilly, VA. May 21, 2012 — Encore Networks, a leader in Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions for fixed and wireless communications, today announced it will introduce a temperature hardened version of the popular C2C™ router. The ruggedized C2C™ is a low-cost, embedded replacement of Plain Old Telephone Services (POTS) lines needed when migrating to an IP Cellular infrastructure in M2M and Legacy Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) applications located in harsh environments.

The temperature hardened C2C™ will be on display at the UTC Expo 2012, Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, Orlando, Florida, Booth #931, May 20 – 23.

The C2C™ provides IP interworking capabilities to an analog modem interface in a single box solution. It allows remote Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) to function with no changes to Operations Administration and Maintenance (OA&M). By converting legacy M2M and SCADA applications to cellular services, the C2C™ provides the benefits of a 3G cellular network’s increased data throughput, reliability, and data security by utilizing SSL or IPSec (AES256, 3DES) and other IP-based services.

“In response to customer input, and the fact that POTS lines have begun to exhibit diminishing reliability and increasing costs, we continue to develop and deliver products that allow more users to eliminate their dependence on analog copper lines and move to a lower cost, all IP wireless cellular infrastructure,” said Scott Burk, Sales Director of Encore Networks. “The hardened C2C allows for this conversion in any harsh temperature environments commonly found in sub-stations, municipalities, utilities and manufacturing plants.”
