Ottawa, ON, May 17, 2017 – Novotech Technologies, a leading IoT company, today announced the launch of its new Continuity suite of services which provides businesses of all sizes with turn-key, secure solutions that use the power of IoT to protect and enhance their business.  The suite includes solutions designed to provide primary and back-up connectivity as well as the ability to proactively manage key assets in the field preventing unnecessary and unwanted downtime.

”In today's business climate, downtime of any kind is simply unacceptable, regardless of the size of the company. However, many companies find it difficult to put solutions together in a way that is cost effective, secure and quick to deploy” says Larry Bellehumeur, EVP of Global Sales for Novotech. “Our goal with Continuity is to provide a wide variety of turn-key solutions that meet the needs of virtually any size of business in any type of industry.”

Quick to deploy and protected by SecureIoT™, Novotech Continuity enables companies to achieve their goals of ensuring maximum uptime for their valuable connections related to key services such as POS and online portals. All of the solutions are available in turn-key bundles, which include all components necessary (Cellular device, antennas, airtime and support).


The Continuity suite consists of 4 different offerings, each designed to help a particular type of business maximize the availability of their key connections and equipment:

Continuity Connect is a turn-key solution designed to provide reliable, high-speed connectivity for your business or to communicate with a remote device.  It can be used as a primary connection or to back up your existing landline connection. Connect allows for a low cost, secure method of communicating with remote assets like meters, kiosks, security gates and more.

Continuity Essential uses technology from Opengear, a leader in the field of Network Monitoring and IT Management solutions, to provide both a reliable cellular connection to back up your main Internet line and an Industry-leading platform to perform Out of Band Management (OOB) on up to 8 key devices. It’s ideal for a variety of industries including retail, restaurants, hospitality and virtually any remote service location.  

Continuity Enterprise offers a truly enterprise-grade solution for demanding customers.  In addition to what’s being offered in Essential, Enterprise adds extra connectivity redundancy; improved security and reporting; environmental monitoring; and the ability to professionally manage up to 12 key devices using Opengear’s Smart OOB™ capabilities. Main applications include monitoring key server rooms / technology closets, disaster recovery and very controlled environments.

Finally, for the most crucial and complex sites, Novotech has a Continuity Platinum level offering.  Platinum brings a new level of service beyond Enterprise by adding the most advanced environmental/security monitoring and by also extending the ability to remotely manage up to 48 devices. In addition to being ideal for monitoring key server rooms and technology closets, as well as very controlled environments, key applications for Platinum extend to include remote communication centers and facilities management locations.
