Amplicon, a supplier of computing, data communications, measurement & control and security automation solutions, has announced the 'Connectport WAN VPN' (CWV) next-generation cellular router designed to connect RS232 or Ethernet devices in-the-field directly to an Internet-facing PC.

According to the company, the CWV supports GPRS, 3G and HSDPA and can provide connectivity via any network, with the user required to put the appropriate SIM card into the unit, adjust two of the configuration settings and power up. Web connections can be made from mobile devices on busses, trains and in cars using the roaming functionality of cellular networks.

The CWV is reportedly targeted at mid- to high-end applications in outdoor or industrial environments. Its dual RS232 ports can be configured as Virtual COM ports in a remote PC or operate in a TCPserver / client mode of operation, and built-in 4-port switch allows four Ethernet devices to connect directly to the CWV without the need for an additional switch.

In addition, when used in conjunction with static IP addressed SIMs, also available from Amplicon, the RS232 and Ethernet devices attached can be connected to directly from any Internet-facing PC in the world, the company claims.

No pricing details were disclosed.
