Flexible solution

The Squid.link 2X can be equipped with Zigbee 3.0 , Wireless M-Bus,Bluetooth 5.0 Classic, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Z-Wave Plus, and WLAN HAN networks. To communicate with servers and devices like smartphones, the Squid.link 2X has options for WLAN, Ethernet (to local modem) or cellular networks through a cellular module or a dual SIM card slot.

Thanks to the modular structure of the gateway, you can choose which protocols to include in your solution and only pay for the selected modules, resulting in an extremely competitive price. With the Squid.link 2X, you are no longer dependent on one vendor of IoT devices but can combine your Home Area Network according to your needs.

The Squid.link 2X gives you the option for several hardware extensions. For an even higher range of your solution, you can include up to two external antennas in the gateway. By adding a micro SD card, you can increase the flash memory of the gateway.

The Squid.link 2X is configured when put into production. Customize the appearance of the gateway according to your needs. You can choose between numerous design options to make the gateway look the gateway the way you want.

Secure gateway

The Squid.link 2X comes with several options to maximize the security of the gateway. You can choose to implement hardware-accelerated encryption with one of three different hardware security chips to ensure that your customers’ data are protected. The Squid.link 2X can also include tamper protection through an accelerometer to detect movement of the device.

You are also able to include an Apple MFi chip to certify your solution with Apple.

Extended functionalities

The Squid.link 2X can include either active or passive RFID. With the passive RFID, the gateway can exchange data with an NFC reader/writer (e.g. Android smartphone) even if the gateway is unpowered. The active RFID is only active when the gateway is powered. It can be used as a short distance communication interface e.g. to Android smartphones or to configure or read tags.

The gateway can also include a Real-Time Clock module that enables you to track time accurately while consuming little power. Equipped with a MEMS microphone, the gateway can detect sounds, for example, from smoke alarms.
