ema™ - Smart Embedded Modem™

OptConnect ema is a fully certified LTE Category 4 Smart Embedded Modem

Image of OptConnect's ema™ - Smart Embedded Modem™ OptConnect ema eliminates the delays, complexities, and frustrations of typical cellular M2M/IoT deployments. With plug and play functionality built in, OptConnect's ema allows companies to outsource one of the biggest stumbling blocks for IoT projects in order to get to market faster, reduce costs, and increase the success rate of their projects.

OptConnect ema is an ideal solution for customers who have tried to launch an IoT product and have failed due to connectivity complexity or where the customer does not have the engineering expertise or resources to support cellular integration. It is also ideal for customers who require the reliability of wireless connections (mission-critical applications) and do not want to manage an IoT network internally.

Existing embedded modems have made it possible for companies to make changes to their equipment without needing to recertify their device but have done little to solve the more complex and difficult connectivity issues involved with IoT projects. OptConnect ema is the first Smart Embedded Modem that includes onboard intelligence that provides all the monitoring, manageability, security, reporting, certifications, and autonomous self-healing of the connection.

OptConnect's Connectivity-as-a-Service (Caas) includes everything a customer needs to simply connect their device or equipment to the internet with the peace of mind they have a team of experts monitoring and managing that device 24/7/365 and have support from our 24/7 customer care center whenever they need help along the way.
