The Thales Cinterion® EGX81 Efficient IoT Gateway
Simple and reliable plug-and-play cellular connectivity quickly connects industrial applications with very little integration or approval effort.
It gives IoT designers an easy and cost-effective solution to connect their assets.


Revolutionary power efficiency and Incremental FOTA ensure longevity

An innovative architecture leverages power class 5 (20 dBm) and efficient eDRX and PSM for ultra efficiency to ensure a long product lifespan. Advanced incremental Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) updates only the portion of code that needs revision. This significantly reduces service interruptions, transmission time, data usage, and power draw to further extend battery life.

State of the art security and optional Thales eSIM simplifies and secures IoT connectivity

An embedded SIM (eSIM) can't be removed, so it strengthens security. The SIM authenticates devices, encrypts data, and securely manages connections to cellular networks. It works seamlessly with Thales’s subscription management solution to maintain connectivity for the lifecycle of devices. All this simplifies integration, manufacturing, and logistics and lowers TCO.

This IoT device is part of a broader range of IoT products offered by Thales.
