The central module of the system provides data collection, processing and storage, interaction with surrounding networks and with cloud infrastructure. The final functionality of the module is determined by the customer at the preparation for production stage.

The consumer platforms of the Raspberry Pi class are well suited for prototyping the idea and working out the technology. When one needs to expand production, companies have to respond to a number of challenges: build an H\W team, develop a product, arrange its production, or give these competencies to outsource developers. Both these situations result in significant time costs and increase the project budget.

Connectus H/W platform allows you to reduce the risks and budget of development. We created and tested the Industrial-class platform specially for your needs. The functional of the final solution and its price can vary within wide limits. The development time of the final device is reduced up to two times due to the unification of all systems.

Connectus SmartSIM is a real or virtual SIM card that allows you to work with several operators in your country at once. Automatic switching between operators ensures the service continuity.

To ensure reliable communication, solutions with two SIM cards are traditionally used. It is required to conclude service agreements with two (or more) operators, select sim cards on the spot with the best signal and manually install them into equipment, constantly monitor the availability of funds on the accounts, the conditions of reception, the operability of the devices. Sim Cards in such devices are a separate module and contacts are susceptible to oxidation and vibration.

Connectus Smart SIM works with all major operators in 160 countries!

The connection is established automatically based on the signal strength and data rate.

Connectus Smart SIM functionality is provided as a service for a single fixed (for your traffic volumes) price within one country, a group of countries or the whole world.

In Russia it they are: MTS, Beeline, Megafon, Tele2, SMARTS, Uralsvyazinform, Yekaterinburg-2000, Yeniseitelecom.

The cost can be specified for your tasks and traffic needs.

Low Power-Wide Area

Connectus works in the latest LPWA (Low Power-Wide Area) data networks - NB-IoT and LTE-M. LPWA technologies are designed for M2M (Machine-to-Machine) applications that require low-speed data transmission over a radio link and unattended operation for a long period of time, also possible in remote or hard-to-reach places. LPWA features: low power consumption (low-power) and wide territorial coverage (wide-area).

Network rollouts in 1H 2018

What makes LPWA a new category of cellular?

  1. Price: More than 50% reduction compared to broadband LTE. Think 2G or Bluetooth.
  2. Consumption: More than 100x lower power than broadband LTE, up to 10+ years battery life.
  3. Coverage: 5-10x greater compared to broadband LTE.

At the same time, all the advantages of classic cellular networks remain:

  • Immediate Service: Global Coverage, 580+ Networks, 180+ Countries
  • Durable Investment: Long-term availability, Global Standard, Scalable and Flexible
  • Trusted Ecosystem: Built-in Security, Solid supply chain, Roaming and eUICC
