Telit extends form factor family with low-cost CDMA module
Module Leader Introduces CE910 for Highly Reliable M2M Deployments
Raleigh, NC – May 2, 2012 – Telit Wireless Solutions (AIM: TCM), a global leader in machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless technology, has extended its xE910 form factor family with the introduction of the CE910-DUAL, a CDMA 1xRTT embedded cellular module ideal for fixed and mobile M2M applications that require robust network coverage and reliability, such as fleet tracking and industrial monitoring.
Telit’s CE910 module allows connected device developers to lower costs and leverage the extensive CDMA network coverage in the U.S. With a CE910-based design, M2M integrators can also easily upgrade or create regional variants of an application with other modules within the family based on UMTS/HSPA, CDMA EV-DO and GSM/GPRS network technologies, effectively future-proofing designs and facilitating global deployments.
"Many M2M applications provide status update messages, as in the case of industrial monitoring or emergency response situations, which places priority on being able to connect to the network anywhere at anytime," said Mike Ueland, senior vice president and general manager of Telit Wireless Solutions North America. "The extensive coverage and expected long life of CDMA networks, as promoted by U.S. carriers, makes the CE910 module the perfect platform for cost-effective, reliable and successful M2M deployments."
The CE910 features a Land-Grid-Array (LGA) form factor with a footprint of just 795mm2, resulting in an extremely low profile in compact cellular devices. In addition to serving as a cost-effective development platform, the CE910 boasts a range of functions for over-the-air maintenance and management of software in the module, further protecting customers’ investments in creating and deploying M2M solutions.
Joining the xE910 family, the CE910 features pin-to-pin compatibility with the HE910, DE910 and GE910 modules, respective Telit counterparts for UMTS/HSPA, CDMA EV-DO and GSM/GPRS M2M deployments, allowing developers flexibility in network selection and device costs.
