All RACOM GPRS/EDGE/UMTS routers are designed with attention to detail, performance and quality. Thanks to their unique features they set trends in their market segment, especially wireless data transfer for SCADA & Telemetry. Examples of such features are:

  • Hybrid networks – compatible with RACOM radio modems
  • Serial SCADA protocol implementation
  • Optimized for min. data volumes => low monthly fees

RACOM as the leader in wireless communication for SCADA & Telemetry, Fleet management and Transaction networks also designs and manufactures wireless routers for 2G, 2+G, 3G, 3+G and 4G networks. Radio modems and GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/LTE modems can be combined in one hybrid network which joins together the advantages of both the radio network and the GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/LTE network. RACOM long-term experience in design and production of radio modems for SCADA & Telemetry guaranties that 2G/3G/4G wireless routers are perfectly suited for applications using different industrial protocols like Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, DNP3, IEC101, IEC104,
Profibus etc.
