Encore Networks Partners with Quanta Computer to provide Wireless Access to Verizon’s 4G LTE Network

Quanta’s LTE Module in Encore Routers Will Provide Primary Connectivity, Wireless Back-up, and Bonded Carrier for Business Continuity in America’s Largest 4G LTE Network

Chantilly, VA January 7, 2014 – Encore Networks, a leader in M2M solutions for fixed and wireless communications, today announced that they have standardized on the Quanta Computer Inc.(Quanta) LTE only module to run on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network. As the nation’s largest 4G LTE network, Verizon Wireless is available in over 500 U.S. markets and reaches approximately 95% of the U.S. population.

Quanta’s single mode, highly cost effective, ultra-low priced LI172 LTE module is the first LTE only mini-PCI-E module specifically designed for use on Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The Encore and Quanta partnership has produced a router that leverages the advantages of 4G LTE in M2M Business Continuity applications.

“Partnering with Quanta is important as it allows Encore to expand our customer base by meeting the growing demand of enterprises using 4G LTE to better manage applications at speeds faster than 3G and T-1,” stated Peter Madsen, President of Encore Networks. “By incorporating Quanta LTE modules into our BANDIT and EN-4000 routers as well as future platforms currently under development, Encore stands by its commitment to provide faster and higher throughput network connections through state-of-the-art technology.”

Enterprises can utilize 4G LTE as a primary or back-up connection or as a dual module transport for maximum throughput solving the challenges and high costs associated with wired network outages.

Among the four major wireless carriers, only Verizon’s 4G network is 100% 4G LTE making it the gold standard of wireless technology. Verizon has already deployed more LTE base stations than 3G towers and will continue to add more coverage. Going forward, this places Encore in a better position to capitalize on this growing market as customers realize that instead of settling for 2G/3G speeds and reliability they can future proof their network with LTE.

Available in both commercial and ruggedized industrial versions, Encore routers are designed for demanding M2M and Business Continuity applications in the harshest of network environments such as power distribution sub-stations and refineries. The newest member of the Encore line is the compact and powerful EN-4000™ a high availability, full featured, broadband wireless router that provides IP, VPN, Firewall, Ethernet Switching and Legacy protocol to IP interworking for a wide range of M2M, SCADA, Video Surveillance and Enterprise applications. All Encore wireless routers move data to a public or private IP cellular infrastructure removing the dependence on copper lines while providing VPN technology with encryption.

Encore routers with Quanta LTE only modules are available in volume production first quarter of 2014. For more information call 703-318-4325 or email sales@encorenetworks.com
