NetComm NTC-6908 Industrial 3G M2M Cellular Router


The NTC-6000 Series industrial M2M routers allows you to build wide area networks utilising the superior speeds supported by 3G UMTS networks. Employing an embedded 3G modem module it offers downlink speeds of up to 7.2Mbps and uplink speeds of up to 5.76Mbps.

The NTC-6000 Series provides the user a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communications link in a single compact and resilient unit. These fully featured cellular network routers support a large number of communication interfaces and protocols, and meet the demands of today’s telemetry and WAN applications.

The router’s embedded Linux operating system and available software development kit (SDK) offers the user the ability to install custom firmware via the application programming interface.

The powerful NTC-6908 hardware platform features a high-speed ARM9-based micro-controller with a generous amount of DRAM and read-writable flash memory. It guaranties flexibility for the development of custom applications onto the device.

Designed for areas such as (but not limited to):
  • Agriculture
  • Construction
  • Enterprise
  • Health
  • Mining
  • Retail
  • Transport
Designed with remote installation in mind the NTC-6000 Series supports multi-level system monitoring giving the user peace of mind the device will keep the communication lines up and open.


  • Ethernet and RS-232 serial connectivity in a single device
