Nov 12, 2014
London - UK, November 12, 2013 – Telit Wireless Solutions, a global provider of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, products and services, today announced the introduction of the company’s smallest 3G-only cellular module, the UE866. The product incorporates powerful and reliable firmware and is designed for pin-to-pin compatibility with the popular GE866 for seamless migration from 2G to 3G. Built on the latest technology available in the market, the UE866 provides long-term availability in an ultra-compact form factor, ideal for telematics applications.
In addition, Telit is also introducing the latest addition to its popular xE910 family, the 3G-only UE910 – which incorporates an optional embedded SIM for applications requiring rugged reliability. The xE910 Unified Form Factor family is comprised of pin-to-pin compatible modules in Telit’s broadest range of cellular air interfaces and band combinations.
Telit’s family form factor approach allows customers to ’design once and deploy globally’. A one-time design and integration effort enables worldwide or regional device re-use across different data rates and wireless technologies with air interfaces in GSM | GPRS, UMTS | HSPA+, 1xRTT, EV-DO, and LTE. The new UE866 and UE910 provides a particularly useful option for North American customers preparing their applications to outlast the upcoming 2G sunset.
The UE910 module’s optional embedded SIM can be pre-provisioned with Telit’s m2mAIR Mobile connectivity and value added services for the ultimate out of the box functionality. Moreover, both new modules are m2mAIR Cloud-ready to allow adopters immediate access to the m2mAIR Cloud application enablement platform, powered by deviceWISE. This unparalleled combination of hardware, software and services provides the ultimate ONE STOP. ONE SHOP. for machine-to-machine and Internet of Things adopters seeking to mitigate risk and reduce time to market.
The embedded Python script interpreter on both new modules allows processing core in the cellular engine to run customer applications which can among other things, access a companion Telit GNSS module directly for a complete ultra-miniature tracking device. The UE866 is ideal for the battery-powered wearable technology segment because of class leading low-power consumption, size, and GPIOs. With the new products, Telit is also targeting the smart metering, mobile POS terminal, mobile health, alarm panel, and telematics application areas.
“The launch of these two new 3G modules is the ultimate expression of our ONE STOP. ONE SHOP. strategy to make the Internet of Things plug-and-play for adopters,” said Felix Marchal, chief product officer at Telit Wireless Solutions. “With embedded processing power, embedded SIM, onboard m2mAIR Cloud APIs and the choice of family form factors, they offer the ultimate flexibility for customers seeking to upgrade their applications to 3G as well as those building a new class of miniature connected devices.”
