The Linxs hardware was developed in close collaboration with the world-leading nano-electronics institute ‘imec’.
Linxs is based upon a powerful motherboard -which contains all the ‘mobile router’ functionalities- and a flexible sensorboard -which can be customised according to the needs of our customers.
The Linxs built-in 4G/LTE radio is pre-provisioned to work in over 150(!) countries. The ‘on-boarding process’ for a Linxs device is fully automated, meaning no manual interaction is required when a Linxs device is powered-on for the 1st time.
Because Linxs is also an micro edge-server, it means that Linxs can preprocess your IoT data and upload it to any private or public cloud platform "immediately and in the right format". And since Linxs comes with our ‘Linxs Worldwide VPN & Signalisation Cloud’, we guarantee <250ms latency around the world through our 15 Global Points of Presence.
The ‘Linxs Demo Kit’ is available to companies interested in test-driving our Linxs ‘Connectivity as a Service’ offering. This kit comes at a one-time fee and includes 1 Linxs mobile router, access to the ‘Linxs Device Management Platform’ and 1 LinxSIM 4G Data card preloaded with 10GB of data. Please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in buying Linxs in larger quantities.
