As kiosks, digital signs, EV charging stations, and other customer self-serve devices become thinner and smaller, the need for a tiny cellular router becomes greater. In 2016, OptConnect saw the need for a fully functional cellular router in a small form factor, especially in markets like kiosk, digital signage, and vending segments. That is when the OptConnect neo was created.
OptConnect neo is a compact router that is less than one quarter the size of our next smallest router. neo’s small size allows customers to easily accommodate it inside their equipment to fit a much larger piece of hardware.
neo is an ultra-compact yet fully capable router that easily fits in the palm of your hand. About the size of a pack of gum, neo eliminates the need for you to engineer and certify your own cellular hardware or to develop software drivers to keep USB routers working.
Just attach the plug and play neo with an ethernet cable and your device is online. And, neo’s self-monitoring logic automatically restores the cellular connection if it is interrupted so your device stays online.
