Advantech B&B Smartworx, provides intelligent M2M and IoT connectivity solutions for wireless and wired networks. The company designs and builds device connectivity and network infrastructure products that deliver intelligent connectivity at the “edge” of networks in remote and demanding environments. After three decades of growth and over 3 million M2M connections with success stories around the world, B&B has acquired a global reputation as a manufacturer of resilient, reliable data connectivity hardware products.
The emerging Industrial Internet of Things has transformed data networking, and B&B has responded to both the need — and the opportunity — to transform as a company. A critical part of that transformation was the development of B&B’s advanced IoT technologies. These “intelligence at the network edge” platforms led the company to a new position in the Internet of Things industry and drove the decision in 2015 to change its name to B+B SmartWorx. PLC Technologies is the sole distributor for the B&B Smartworx full range of products in South Africa and Africa.
Our products help customers access their data information and control equipment, whether nearby or at remote distances. We provide a broad selection of rugged and reliable products and devices designed with the most demanding industrial applications and environments in mind. Our products carry a 5 year warranty. With no setup required, PLC Technologies products are truly plug-and-play.

Serial devices may not be designed for wireless connectivity, but B+B can give them that capability just the same. Where simple point to point connectivity is the only requirement, we can connect your serial and I/0 devices with long range radio modems. But we can also give your serial equipment wireless Ethernet connections, turning every device into an Ethernet network node.
