Sentrius™ MG100 Gateway with LTE-M/NB-IoT and Bluetooth 5

Recommended for New Design (RND)

Overview

The Sentrius MG100 Gateway offers a compact, out of box Bluetooth to low power Cellular gateway solution.

The Sentrius MG100 Gateway is an out-of-the-box product allowing the user to develop a fully featured IoT solution with minimum effort. With the addition of the optional battery backup, it provides uninterrupted reporting of remote Bluetooth sensor data. Based on Laird Connectivity's Pinnacle™ 100 modem, the Sentrius MG100 Gateway captures data from Bluetooth 5 sensors and sends it to the cloud via a global low power cellular (LTE-M/NB-IoT) connection. It is based on the innovative integration of Nordic Semiconductor nRF52840 and the Sierra Wireless HL7800 (Altair ALT1250 silicon) module. This enables the MG100 to support LTE-M/NB-IoT (supports LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 12, 13, 20, and 28) as well as Bluetooth 5 features like CODED PHY, 2M PHY, and LE Advertising Extensions.
