Mako Networks has partnered with Sprint Business to offer wireless IoT gateway solutions through the Sprint IoT Factory, a B2B marketplace for IoT products and services
ELGIN, IL, July 8, 2019 – After years of anticipation, Internet of Things (IoT) growth is truly exploding. As Sprint and other telecoms launch and expand their 5G networks and enhance support for technologies like Cat M1 and LoRa, IoT is seeing unprecedented growth and adoption. As part of this trend, Sprint Business has created the Sprint IoT Factory, a B2B marketplace for builders and buyers of IoT devices and services. Mako Networks has partnered with Sprint to offer secure, high-performance, high-availability IoT gateway solutions for IoT networks that require security, throughput, and uptime.
The Mako secure wireless solution includes the new Mako 6600-M/LTE appliance and one of two different Sprint Wireless Network data plans: 1GB or Unlimited. The 1GB data plan is intended for networks that use LTE as a failover from wired broadband service, while networks configured to use LTE as the primary or only broadband service are likely to need the Unlimited data plan.
Built with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) in mind, the Mako 6600-M/LTE allows businesses to quickly and easily segment their payment networks, apply strict security controls, and lock down their systems to PCI DSS criteria. It is rich with advanced features, such as PCI-compliant Wi-Fi and high-performance SD-WAN. With a sealed, tamper-evident unit, no moving parts, and high heat tolerance, the 6600-M/LTE is well-suited to any tough network environment.
Additional Mako 6600‐M/LTE features include 24/7 access to the Mako Central Management System (CMS) for cloud-based configuration, reporting, and diagnostic tools; SD-WAN broadband connectivity; built-in dual-SIM multi-carrier cellular module; four physical network segments, plus VLAN support; up to four Wi-Fi networks; stateful inspection firewall; Mako VPN Cloud SD-WAN tunneling; MFA remote-access VPNs; content filtering; and zero-touch deployment.
“We are thrilled to expand our relationship with Sprint by participating in this exciting new incubator for IoT development,” said Jason Kubasak, CEO of Mako Networks. “We look forward to seeing Mako appliances and services put to work in creative ways, in new industries, and in smaller-scale environments. These are all opportunities for us to showcase the Mako System’s flexibility and advanced features and to enhance our offerings in the future.”
