u-blox announce multiradio and gateway module series

The NINA-W15 multiradio and gateway module series from u-blox, has been designed to simultaneously support both Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connections and dual-mode Bluetooth connectivity.

With support for both Bluetooth low energy and Bluetooth BR/EDR these modules are suitable for use in products such as gateways and hubs that need to connect local Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi peripherals to a wider-area network.

Key applications for the modules include industrial automation, such as machine control, industrial terminal and remote controls, building automation, and smart building/home equipment such as HVAC and lighting control. Other potential use cases include retail point-of-sale terminals, telematics control units, and medical equipment such as defibrillators and urology monitors.

The NINA-W15 modules will help IoT device developers to secure their designs by supporting features such as secure boot, Wi-Fi enterprise security, end to end security, Bluetooth secure connections, and secure simple pairing. The modules are also supplied with pre-flashed u-blox connectivity software. This has been proven in the market for 15 years, and supports several connectivity use cases, such as multiple individually controlled connections, simultaneous GATT protocol and Serial Port Service, and simultaneous peripheral and central role.
