MDS entraNET
MDS entraNET Extended Range IP/Ethernet

The MDS entraNET™ is an ultra long range, industrial, wireless IP/Ethernet solution, with a high level of cyber-security. It allows the connection of Ethernet and/or serial devices to an IP network. This includes mission-critical, revenue-generating remote devices monitoring and controlling fixed assets such as oil and gas wells, compressor stations, pipelines, fluid storage tanks and utility meters. The entraNET has also been optimized for mobility allowing it to be used in vehicles when applications require mobile network access.
