Laird Releases New Multi-Wireless IoT Gateway

April 1, 2020 Perry Cohen

Laird Connectivity launched its new multi-wireless Sentrius IG60-BL654 gateway for secure and reliable connectivity from Bluetooth sensors to the cloud.

According to the company, the IG60-BL654 provides a platform for Bluetooth 5 long-range sensor-to-cloud applications. Additionally, it’s based on the company’s 60 Series System-on-Module (SoM) and BL654 embedded Bluetooth module.

Bluetooth, coupled with Wi-Fi, gives users the ability to capture data from Bluetooth 5 sensors, add edge intelligence, and send that data to the cloud over high-performance 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

The IG60-BL654 comes in two software variants for design flexibility. The Linux version of the gateway offers a long-term supported and open platform. For cloud-native organizations, the AWS IoT Greengrass variant allows customers to manage applications over-the-air from the cloud using integrated AWS IoT Greengrass.
