Belden, provider of signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, says its Magnum DX940e Industrial Cellular Router is now backed with Verizon certified 4G/LTE technology. 

This compact device from the company’s GarrettCom brand uses the technology to offer “the most reliable connections” over wireless networks in energy facilities and adheres to NERC CIP industry standards by delivering stricter security protocols and extended flexibility. 

“Data is traveling further and faster than ever before in today’s industrial markets, which makes it necessary to optimize network reliability and security—especially with the rise in data and compliance standards such as NERC CIP’s requirements,” says Divij Agarwal, product manager at Belden. “The new 4G/LTE Magnum DX940e variant is now Verizon certified, giving users the highest possible network coverage and business-ready plan for secure remote connectivity.”

Belden further claims that the DX940e is ideal for applications that require high-speed and secure data transfer remotely over long distances. The router is suited for markets that require flexibility to securely connect to remote substations, either wired or wirelessly and depend on a durable and reliable product that can perform even under harsh operating conditions, such as in the utility, transportation and oil and gas industries.
