Xi’an China, 14 April 2010 – Telit Wireless Solutions, a global leader and specialist in wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) technology, is participating in the METERING China 2010 – The 4th China Smart Metering, Billing, AMR/Data Management and CRM & CIS Conference & Exhibition held in Xi’an during Apr.14th to 16th, booth number is 205+207.

During the event, Telit will exhibit its newest products and solutions for China’s AMR market, including GE865-QUAD, the smallest GSM/GPRS Ball-Grid-Array (BGA) modules on the market, and the perfect platform for high-volume m2m applications and mobile data devices. Another two products tailor-made for the Chinese market are also exhibited: the GC864-DUAL and the GC868-DUAL. With an ultra-compact design and extended temperature range, GC864-DUAL and GC868-DUAL are the perfect platform for medium-to-high volume m2m applications and mobile data devices. The GC864-DUAL comes with a small form factor, 30 x 36 mm, and an extended temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. In view of its low energy consumption and minimal maintenance requirements, the hardware platforms are particularly suitable for use in the energy management sector, ideal for AMR solutions.

Nowadays, the role of smart metering is more important for global economic recovery and low-carbon policies. There are 14 billion meters in the world, among which less than 10% can be called smart metering, or found to be interactive or connective. China’s massive investment in low-carbon technology and Smart Grid Infrastructure provides new opportunities for M2M development. Telit is currently not only supplying GSM/GPRS modules to the top AMR manufacturers but also CDMA and WCDMA modules to many M2M application companies in China, with volumes second only to the leading supplier who has been in this market for over ten years.

As global leader and specialist in wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) technology, Telit is the only supplier on the M2M market to cover all the wireless technologies available in the market with its product portfolio. The Chinese market is strategically important for gaining global leadership with a variety of m2m applications ranging from AMR/AMM, AVL security, location and tracking, data acquisition, and fixed wireless communications.

China Smart Metering, Billing, AMR/Data Management and CRM & CIS Conference & Exhibition is the only international annual event in the field of metering held in China. A series of topics will be discussed during this year’s event, including the smart metering system deployment and innovation, international development and experience on smart metering, as well as outlook of smart metering and smart grids.
