RALEIGH, NC – July 27, 2010 – Telit Wireless Solutions, Inc., the U.S.-based mobile technology arm of Telit Communications (AIM: TCM), announced today that the UC864-G module has earned certification on the AT&T wireless network. The UC864-G is a 3.5G wireless data module designed for smart, embedded cellular applications requiring the global portability afforded by a radio structure comprised of quad-band support to GSM/GPRS/EDGE and tri-band UMTS/HSDPA.
Featuring an ultra-compact size, the UC864-G is designed to enable the high-bandwidth cellular data transmissions that consumer and enterprise electronics developers require for more complex, connected 3G devices. From video calling to detailed x-rays to real-time home security monitoring, Telit’s UC864-G enables bandwidth-intensive communications for modern mobile video, data and computing devices. The UC864 product family is ideal for content-focused mobile internet applications, such as vehicle infotainment and navigation systems.
“AT&T’s leadership in M2M and smart technology is accelerating commercial and consumer market adoption of connected devices faster than ever,” said Michael Ueland, Vice President and General Manager of Telit. “With Telit’s UC864-G now ready for launch on AT&T, our customers can take advantage of 3G speeds and our unique family form factor concept, which allows for a single design to be implemented across a global market.”
The UC864-G features a fully compatible design that works with Telit’s GSM/GPRS and CDMA products, the GC864-QUAD and CC864-DUAL respectively, in one compact, unified form factor family. This enables integrators and developers the ability to design applications once and take advantage of the global coverage and service flexibility afforded by the combination of the two most prevalent cellular technologies worldwide.
