Laird Connectivity has launched a new wireless IoT gateway that securely and reliably connects Bluetooth sensors and legacy serial equipment to the cloud.

The Sentrius IG60 gateway is a smart and secure way to gather actionable IoT intelligence: Collect data via Bluetooth 5, Ethernet, Serial (RS-232/422/485, including Modbus or proprietary protocol support), SD micro, or USB and then send it over high-performance 802.11ac 2x2 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi to the cloud. At its core, the device leverages the company's 60 Series SOM, giving superior enterprise-class Wi-Fi performance plus Bluetooth 5. The device also leverages the 60 SOM’s Chain of Trust security architecture which offers layers of enterprise-grade security.

The device comes in two variants to offer customers the most design flexibility: one built to easily and securely integrate with AWS IoT using AWS Greengrass, and the other with their long-term supported Linux environment.

"Laird Connectivity is at the forefront of developing multi-wireless solutions that best meet the demands of the IoT. The Sentrius IG60 was designed with our customers in mind, enabling further progress into IoT enablement such as industrial, smart building, and medical applications, where gathering data securely and across world-wide deployments matters most," said Laird Connectivity CEO, Scott Lordo. "The Sentrius IG60 Series combines our industry-recognized connectivity, Cloud, Linux, and advanced security expertise into one complete solution. This allows customers to access the latest market-leading wireless technology and get products to market faster by eliminating the steep learning curve, design risk, and time that it typically involves."
