Sixnet, which specializes in machine-to-machine networking solutions for industrial and wireless markets, announced a new family of M2M wireless gateways and routers for providing primary backup connectivity in retail and financial applications.
The M2M wireless connectivity series brings together enterprise-class management and security along with reliability and easy installation. This makes it suitable for customers using kiosks, ATM machines, point-of-sale terminals, lottery machines, WAN backup and landline backup to deploy wireless connectivity solutions rapidly and cost effectively. This helps protect critical business operations irrespective of location, added company sources.
Sixnet’s M2M wireless gateways and routers offer enterprise-class management through the company’s SixView Manager. This allows ongoing management and visibility of multiple devices from a single console. Customers can easily update firmware and make field changes to remote devices without having to visit the individual unit, by using SixView Manager.

“Our M2M wireless solutions provide the reliability, ease-of-use and enterprise features that these customers require to support and protect their business. In addition, SixView Manager reduces costs and complexity across our entire platform by making maintenance and changes to wireless networks fast and easy,” Nicholson added.

The Sixnet EnterprisePro Routers reduces complexity by connecting business applications to 3G cellular networks with IP Transparency. It secures connectivity via built-in firewall with Access control List and packet filtering. This helps manage primary WAN routers, PBXs, firewalls, servers and devices with serial ports remotely, said company sources.
Also the company’s Sixnet ATM Cellular Gateway (News - Alert) supports several ATM processors and eliminates need for DSL and phone lines making installation easy and fast. The Sixnet ATM Internet Gateway supports ATMs, most ATM processors and ATM management software platforms also facilitating installation.
