M3C-CB10, the multi metering management concentrator

M3C-CB10 is the data communication concentrator which enables M2M data exchange over different networks such as public wireless network, powerline communication (PLC) and proximity wireless networks.

It chooses the network according to the device to linking with:

  • power line communication (PLC) - characteristically it works on this network when data exchange is performed with onsite devices
  • short range networks, used to link proximity wireless devices
  • TCP/IP (GSM, GPRS, PSTN, ...) wireless communication - on these networks it usually performs the communication with back-office control room systems.

Local and remote maintenance
M3C-CB10 natively offers a high level both local and remote maintenance thank to direct connections or via WAN. Its firmware maintenance and updating can be completely remote deployed.

CPU, memory and operating system
M3C-CB10 is equipped with the STMicroelectronics SPEAr310 CPU core which is based on ARM926J-S processors, works at 333MHz and can manage a calculating performance of 366 Dhrystone MIPS.

The CPU core is also completed with a coprocessor which performs 128bit encryption according to the following algorithms: AES cipher at ECB CBC and CTR, DES cipher at ECB and CBC, SHA-1, HMAC-SHA-1, MD5, HMAC-MD5 digests.

M3C-CB10 is also configured with DDR2 SDRAM 256MB RAM memory and NAND FLASH 256MB mass memory

M3C-CB10 runs Linux operating system
