Silicon Slopes, Utah (PRWEB) - OptConnect, a leader in the managed wireless connectivity industry, today announced that their recently launched Smart Embedded Modem™, OptConnect ema™, has been recognized by the Best of Sensors Awards in the category of Innovative Product of the Year.
"The whole driving force behind ema finds its roots in the famous quote from Thomas Edison when he said, 'there is a way to do it better -- find it," said Chris Baird, President and CEO of OptConnect. "We think that OptConnect ema™ is a better way to utilize embedded technology and winning this award validates that we have indeed created a better way and that people are noticing."
The Best of Sensors awards program highlights the advances in sensor innovations and excellence among engineers. Specifically, the Innovation award seeks to recognize advances in sensor and sensor-related technologies, either in the form of novel technologies or significant improvements to existing technologies.
OptConnect ema™ is a fully certified LTE Category 4 Smart Embedded Modem™ with onboard intelligence, embedded firmware and software, paired with OptConnect’s industry-leading suite of managed services.
ema has made significant improvements to sensor technology by enabling sensors to be easily integrated and connected through an embedded cellular connection.
