I am wondering if anybody has deployed LTE Boron to remote sites and had them reliably stay up for months on end, and if so, 1) what Device OS you were using and 2) any tips/tricks to make this happen, short of an external power switching watchdog circuit.
I ask amid extreme frustration as just this afternoon, yet a third Boron of mine hours away in the field has randomly disappeared, gone totally offline, and not reconnected for over 3 hours. This is on v1.5.0 with perfect power and great cellular signal.
Perhaps I am misunderstanding. Is this product not intended to be used for any industrial/remote monitoring/24-7 uptime purposes? Is it just a product for hobbyists? Am I looking in the wrong place and needing to buy a more robust 4G LTE Cat 1 Ethernet modem to get stable connection that won’t enter states of permanent disconnectivity until I drive hours to the site for a manual reset? The amount of time and money these Boron connection issues have been causing me is requiring me to take action, for my own mental health too.
I have given Particle chance after chance to get the Boron product to stability, but recent events have made me truly dying to know if anyone else is actually using the Boron successfully in a remote sensing environment.
Any feedback or advice is appreciated.
