Targeting retail failover/back-up

“Working with Encore allows our team to create highly competitive end-to-end solutions for 3G/4G primary/failover and rapid deployment.

• Encore’s globally competitive and diverse router solutions ready for European expansion

• UK, France and Germany reseller channels to be developed by Wireless Logic Group’s connected hardware specialist – Nucleus Networks

• Wireless Logic Direct to develop vertical-focused ‘end-to-end’ 3G/4G connected solutions


Wireless Logic Group (www.wirelesslogic.com) – Europe’s leading M2M/IoT connectivity platform provider has been appointed UK partner to Encore Networks, a leading manufacturer of wireline, cellular and satellite VPN routers. The agreement allows Wireless Logic Group to carry Encore’s lines of BANDIT™ and EN™ commercial and industrially hardened 4G LTE routers. Wireless Logic will use its mobile hardware company, Nucleus Networks, to develop the reseller market within the UK, France and Germany, tapping into its own base of partners and forging new opportunities. Nucleus is well placed to grow an Encore base within this evolving sector.

Encore’s EN™ Series of commercial and industrial grade 3G/4G routers are designed for M2M and IoT applications such as Digital Signage, Business Continuity/Failover, Video Surveillance, Point-of-Sale and ATMs on public and/or private wireless 4G LTE networks all managed with enCloud™, Encore's cloud-based enterprise management platform.

Meanwhile, Wireless Logic UK and their German and French counterparts will look to integrate Encore router solutions into their direct channels, which have seen a marked increase in ‘solutions-based’ business, combining router hardware, pre-configuration and mobile connectivity. The direct team will be launching a number of tailored vertical packages delivered on a simple OPEX-based monthly cost structure. The first of these launches has already taken place at Retail Business Technology Expo 2017 in London. Here, a number of end-to-end connected solutions were unveiled suitable for Retail Business Continuity/Failover, Pop-up Shops, Rapid Deployment Connectivity and Electronic Point of Sale (EPoS). Both organisations have also recently attended the London-based ATMIA event, demonstrating back-up solutions for ATM (cash machine) applications.

In developing the direct channel, Wireless Logic will integrate Encore’s enCloud™ management platform into their SIMPro cloud-based SIM control platform which enables users to have complete visibility and management of router estates and associated cellular connectivity. The combined platforms will create new levels of granular management with multi-level permissions access, remote updates and diagnostics, data aggregation and real-time usage tools. Resilience and security are further enhanced by tailored APN interconnect/VPN infrastructure solutions that all form part of Wireless Logic’s M2M/IoT connectivity eco-system.

Peter Madsen, President of Encore Networks comments: “I am excited to align Encore Networks with a company as experienced and with such market-leading presence as Wireless Logic Group. As Europe’s premier IoT connectivity platform provider, Wireless Logic Group offers a smarter approach to the challenges of M2M and IoT, as they understand every application has its own unique requirements. This vision gives Wireless Logic customers the confidence to know that they have access to the widest range of services and the most highly-specialised products available.”

Jon-Paul Clarke, Business Development Director of Wireless Logic Group comments: “Working with Encore allows our team to create highly competitive end-to-end solutions for 3G/4G primary/failover and rapid deployment. From office and retail to industrial and ruggedised environments, the addition of the Encore portfolio of routers will enable us to deliver more choice and value with the ability to roll-up mobile airtime and support into a single on-going monthly fee.”
