Telit Wireless Solutions (aim:TCM), a global provider of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) modules and value-added services, introduced a Mini PCI Express card with an embedded M2M module designed for industrial applications.
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.
Telit’s HE910-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.
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, GPRS 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.
