a leading global provider of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) modules and value-added services, today introduced a Mini PCI Express card with an embedded M2M module designed for industrial applications.
-based Mini-PCIe adapter card enables secure 3G cellular data, voice, and video communication for embedded PCs in a variety of commercial and industrial applications, including ATMs, kiosks, digital signage, surveillance, fleet management, and other applications benefitting from always-on wireless data connection, monitoring, and control.
The “plug-and-play” Mini PCI Express card slot and 52-pin card edge connector allows application developers to easily integrate M2M capabilities into their solutions.
“Cellular Mini PCI Express cards have previously been a niche market but we expect it to grow significantly with the increase of M2M applications and the need for both high-performance motherboards and cellular connectivity for remote, off-site solutions,” said Dominikus Hierl, chief marketing officer at Telit Wireless Solutions.
Designed for M2M applications requiring high bandwidth and worldwide coverage, the HE910 with Mini PCIe Adapter combines premium radio access technology UMTS/HSPA+ with backward compatibility to GSM
and EDGE networks. It includes HSDPA 21.0 Mbps (Cat 14), HSUPA 5.7 Mbps (Cat 6), embedded TCP/IP protocol stack and custom Telit AT commands. Support for USB and RIL drivers for Windows and Linux environments is available. Customers can also choose to add integrated high sensitivity A-GPS functionality.
“Telit’s high quality products and worldwide support competence in the fast growing M2M market, makes them an important member in the Intel Intelligent System Alliance, one of the world’s most recognized and trusted technology ecosystems,” said Helmut Vogler, vice president and general manager of Mobile and Wireless Sales for Intel Corporation.
Since 2012, Telit has been part of an elite group of associate members in the Intel Intelligent Systems Alliance, a worldwide technology program providing hardware, software, firmware, tools and systems integration for embedded systems based on Intel technology. The Intel Intelligent Systems Alliance also offers joint sales and marketing opportunities.
