Kerlink iFemtocell

How do I set it up?

The Kerlink iFemtocell receives radio transmissions from the Microshare IoT devices in and around your building and uses an integrated Ethernet or cellular/mobile connection to send data securely to the Microshare Smart Network. Please make sure your selected physical install location will allow for a good cellular signal and is central to the IoT devices you will use in your facility. Contact Microshare if you have any doubts on the best place to install the gateway. Bad placement will result in poor performance of the overall system.
