EDGE series products are Internet of Things devices which speed up IoT project deployment on field sites in an easy and scalable way. The major advance wireless LPWA solution: LTE NB-IoT/Cat-M1 is deployed on the Edge node product respectively, fulfilling wireless monitoring and controlling needs under an IoT framework.

The EDGE 2 conveniently and transparently connects the existing field site sensors/serial devices with only basic configuration to NBIoT/Cat-M1 Internet network.
