Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. (MultiTech), a leading provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) technology platforms supporting applications for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that ILS Technology has selected the company as Device Partner of the Year.

The two companies have collaborated by embedding the deviceWISE agent directly into the OCG firmware, thus making MultiTech’s MultiConnect OCG (open communications gateway) “deviceWISE ready”. This new integrated offering further reduces the risk, time-to-market, complexity, and cost of deploying complete end-to-end M2M solutions.

“We are honored to be recognized by ILS Technology for this award,” said MultiTech CEO Stefan Lindvall. “MultiTech and ILS are partnering to make it easier for people to deploy M2M applications on the deviceWISE platform. Our goal is to make this truly plug and play, and we will continue to expand our integrated offerings with ILS.”

The MultiConnect OCG comprises an open Linux development environment and a fully certified hardware platform that includes multiple interfaces (serial, USB, Ethernet, and SD card) and internal peripherals (including a cellular modem and a GPS receiver) in one application-ready, end user solution. This unique communications gateway brings together a cellular hardware development environment, built around wireless M2M modules from Telit, and MultiTech’s CoreCDP, a distribution version of the Linux operating system and complete Linux build environment, to create custom applications in a very short period of time. The MultiTech MultiConnect OCG provides a flexible, quick and cost-effective way to bring solutions to market.

The deviceWISE Application Enablement Platform (AEP) delivers standards-based Cloud connectivity and integration across any remote device, any network, and any enterprise application in the back office. The developer-friendly platform is preferred among leading organizations – large and small – that rely on mission-critical connectivity, security, scalability, and carrier-grade performance.


MultiTech has been expanding the connected world by delivering industry-leading communications technology platforms for over 40 years. Offering an extensive line of fully certified and carrier-approved external and embedded modems, routers, and gateways, MultiTech works with thousands of customers worldwide to easily enable cellular, analog, Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, LoRa™, GPS, and other M2M communication capabilities for their IoT applications.
