Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. September 19, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Telit Wireless Solutions, a global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) modules and services, today announced its HE910 modules have earned certification for use on Rogers Wireless networks in Canada.
Featuring an ultra-low profile, Telit’s HE910 module variants are said to be ideal for compact consumer electronic devices and other mobile M2M applications, including e-readers, GPS navigation and mobile health devices.
The HE910 family of modules will power M2M solutions and connected devices enabled on Rogers wireless networks. Rogers Wireless provides data connectivity to its industry solution providers, including Telit, enabling them to offer products, services and expert guidance. These support M2M solutions across a broad range of vertical markets, including transportation, retail, oil and gas, government, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing and education.
“Rogers’ expansive wireless networks throughout Canada provide a number of opportunities for our HE910 module variants to be used in small, lightweight mobile devices that require the most advanced connectivity,” said Mike Ueland, senior vice president and general manager of Telit Wireless Solutions North America.
Telit’s HE910 family modules are part of the xE910 form factor family, with all regional and network variants featuring a 28.2 x 28.2 x 2.2mm LGA package and providing an ultra-low profile in the integrated solution. The Rogers-approved HE910 variants include:
* 2 modules designed for global deployments, the full-featured HE910 (also known as HE910-G) with HSPA+ data, voice and GPS capabilities, and the HE910-D, offering data-only functionality; and
* 3 modules designed to serve the North American market, namely the HE910-NAR, with data and voice, the data-only HE910-NAD, and the data- and GPS-enabled HE910-NAG.
These embedded modules are among the smallest and lightest on the market today, reducing costs in high-volume applications and in portable devices. Telit’s HE910 family modules support all five existing frequency bands in 3G mode: 850/900/1700/1900/2100 MHz. The modules also offer ubiquitous 2G coverage with quad band GPRS and EDGE, facilitating worldwide application deployments.
