Raleigh, NC and Aurora, IL – March 14, 2011 – Janus Remote Communications, a leader in the M2M (machine to machine) communication products and services, announced today that their GSM865CF “common footprint” plug-in GSM/GPRS modules achieved PTCRB end product certification.

Adding to their highly successful line of cellular modems and terminal products, the Janus Plug-In Terminus modules allow users to quickly and easily add cellular connectivity to any existing or new applications. With PTCRB certification, users need no further certification for their end products. The common footprint design affords users the option to change back and forth between cellular networks as their communication needs change.

The GSM865CF offers TCP/IP stack access via AT commands and full FOTA management capabilities. The 2.5” x 1.4” x 0.365” open frame “DIP Type” design has a operational temperature range of -40° to 80°C, sensitivity of =-106 dBm and an input voltage range of 4.75 to 5.25 Vdc. The Terminus GSM865CF is ideal for use in fleet and asset management, security systems, telemetry, telematics, remote monitoring systems, remote meter reading, vending machines or any other M2M applications.

Janus currently supports three different network communication modules in their common footprint design: GSM/GPRS (2.5G), CDMA (3G), and UMTS (3G). Development is currently under way for an HSPA (4G) footprint compatible solution. Janus is proud to use Telit GSM/GPRS technology in the Terminus Plug-In modules.
