M-Link Web App

FW Murphy’s IoT Gateway, M-Link, supports three of the best services and instantly auto-selects the best connection.

The first tri-mode (dual-cell/satellite) option to deliver on complete connectivity.  From on-site services to remote office needs, M-Link provides access, reliability and insight to your fleet and application. M-LINK’s dual cellular modem also ensures broadband field connectivity for your workforce with a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Remote Access
With support for AT&T, Verizon and Iridium in one device, M-Link chooses the best service without the need for user intervention to ensure a reliable signal. Instead of choosing a service, M-Link supports three of the best services and instantly selects the best option for the optimal connection. This complete connectivity puts data where you need it to schedule repairs, plan responses and avoid unplanned downtime.

Mobile Applications
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities free you from standing in front of a control panel or tethering you to a laptop. See your application in a completely new view. A smart device and M-Link app change the way you operate equipment and how you interact with real-time information so you can put it to work.

Over The Air
M-Link integrates FW Murphy-connected devices to manage over-the-air updates and changes across your fleet with ease.
