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.

Based on the Pinnacle 100 socket modem, the Sentrius™ MG100 gateway captures data from any Bluetooth 5 modules or devices and sends it to the cloud via a global low power cellular (LTE-M/NB-IoT) connection. The MG100 seamlessly incorporates a powerful Cortex M4F controller, full Bluetooth 5 connectivity, and dual-mode LTE-M/NB-IoT capabilities – all with full regulatory, network certifications, and End Device carrier approvals.

Develop your application directly on the integrated Cortex M4F microcontroller using Zephyr RTOS, enabling your application development with a secure, open source RTOS with more than just kernel services. Remotely debug your fleet of devices with the Memfault Platform. Take advantage of the Zephyr community and Laird Connectivity’s multi featured Out of Box (OOB) sample source code covering all aspects of the products’ capabilities and hardware interfaces. The MG100 also delivers complete antenna flexibility with internal or external antenna options available, and the optional battery backup provides uninterrupted reporting of remote Bluetooth sensor data.
