AT&T says yes to Lisa 3G module

AT&T has given official approval to the Lisa surface-mount 3G module from Swiss positioning and wireless chip and module company U-Blox for use on its mobile broadband network.

Claimed to be the world’s smallest 3G module to gain such approval, Lisa is targeted for use in M2M, telematics and other mobile devices for applications such as fleet management, emergency call, automatic vehicle location, asset tracking, security systems and remote metering.

Lisa also includes U-Blox’s proprietary Celllocate technology, which supports geographical positioning in areas where GPS is not possible such as in underground car parks or tunnels.

“After intensive testing and qualification, we are proud to announce that Lisa complies with AT&T’s 3G wireless network standards,” said Nikolaos Papadopoulos, president of U-Blox America.

“Lisa is the smallest 3G module approved for operation on AT&T’s network. It also offers customers proven leadless chip carrier surface-mount technology to significantly reduce manufacturing costs, improve customer yields and increase reliability and operational longevity.”
