NetComm Wireless Limited and Vodafone have added the Vodafone MachineLink 3G Plus to the Integrated M2M Terminals range, offering an alternative for unconnected machines that need a larger selection of interface options. Developed by NetComm Wireless to facilitate the uptake of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) across a multitude of industries globally, the Vodafone MachineLink 3G Plus enables M2M connectivity in areas such as healthcare, agriculture, vending, point of payment and energy.

The Vodafone MachineLink 3G Plus is a 3G penta-band modem and router with built-in GPS. It is compatible with Vodafone or Vodafone M2M partner networks worldwide, and the Vodafone M2M Global Platform. The device supports multiple communication protocols and interface options with features including Ethernet, Serial (RS232/422/485), I/O and USB 2.0 ports. Designed for flexible customization, the Vodafone MachineLink 3G Plus features an embedded Software Development Kit (SDK) and open source Linux OS to support unique business functions.

Vodafone’s second annual M2M Adoption Barometer found that M2M adoption has grown more than 80%, with more than one-fifth of companies actively using the technology. The Vodafone MachineLink 3G Plus is expected to advance this growth by allowing businesses to upgrade from legacy serial connectivity to IP connectivity with access to a broader range of connection choices.

“The Vodafone MachineLink 3G Plus is the second bespoke product developed for Vodafone which gives businesses the ability to select the best solution for their individual applications. It presents a tremendous opportunity for businesses that need extra options to connect and manage valuable assets,” saidDavid Stewart, CEO and managing director, NetComm Wireless.
