OptConnect launches the world’s first smart USB modem

Kaysville, UT — OptConnect, an industry leader in managed wireless solutions, today announced the launch of ema:USB, the first smart USB modem. The ema:USB enables customers to integrate cellular connectivity into their hardware without the delays and complexities of other solutions.

“By bringing ema:USB to market, we continue to expand our plug-and-play solutions and support our diverse, ever-expanding customer base with the products they know they can rely on.”Post this

At the core of the new ema:USB is an OptConnect ema™, a patented smart embedded modem. As a fully certified LTE Category 4 modem, it helps customers avoid the added cost and difficulties associated with developing a low-level embedded wireless design.

With its ultra-compact design, the OptConnect ema:USB can fit into tight environments not suited to large cellular devices. Additionally, its dual-SIM capability easily supports automatic failover if one carrier encounters a network problem, for greater reliability and uninterrupted service.

Each ema:USB includes a proprietary driver, emaConnect, that optimizes compatibility and performance without the need for additional software development. This plug-and-play functionality is particularly critical for connectivity in diverse environments.

The ema:USB also comes with OptConnect’s industry-leading Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS) management solution. This CaaS offering helps customers quickly deploy and scale their IoT projects with 24 x 7 x 365 carrier monitoring, one-call tech support resolution, device management, robust hardware warranties, and a full suite of additional services.

“While working to make connectivity both robust and simple for customers to integrate into their solution, we continued to hear that having a plug-and-play USB option would be a game changer for OEMs, operators, and deployers looking to connect their IoT devices,” said Chris Baird, OptConnect president and CEO. “By bringing ema:USB to market, we continue to expand our plug-and-play solutions and support our diverse, ever-expanding customer base with the products they know they can rely on.”
