Telit 3G-ONLY Module to Deliver Compact, High-speed Data for U.S. Connected Devices
UL865 3G-only HSPA Mobile-data Module to Leverage Small VQFN Form-factor to Enable Migration from 2G in North America
London – UK, October 15, 2013 – Telit Wireless Solutions, a global provider of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, products and services, today announced the introduction of the market’s first and smallest 3G-only-cellular module. The product which also incorporates a Python Script Language interpreter, is capable of running customer applications internally without the need for additional electronics. The new 3G-only UL865 data-only module series delivers HSPA data rates of 7.2Mbps down and 5.76 Mbps up and will be available in a variant compliant with band and operator requirements for the North American market.
The new variant was designed to fulfill the role of cost-optimized mobile-data adapter addressing demand surge from the North American market as operators start setting dates to sunset 2G operations and reuse spectrum with more efficient 3G and 4G technologies. The new product features a high-speed USB 2.0 port and a dual-band UMTS/HSPA engine delivering 3GPP Release 7 compliant data communications. It is also equipped with eight I/O ports, two A/D and one D/A converters. For streamlined application development and system integration the company offers RIL drivers for all major operating systems.
The embedded Python script interpreter allows processing core in the cellular engine to run customer applications which can among other things, access a companion Telit GPS|Glonass receiver module directly for a complete tracking device.. The new 3G-only variant operates on battery-friendly 1.8 Volt logic ideal for the wearable technology segment. The 24.4×24.4×2.6mm sized 3G-only variant is compatible in form-factor and interfaces to the GL865 V3 GSM|GPRS module series and the company’s recently announced CL865-DUAL CDMA also targeting the North American market.
“The 3G-only variant of the UL865 features a VQFN packaging which is versatile and cost effective in high-volume production situations,” said Felix Marchal, Chief Product Officer at Telit Wireless Solutions. “This further contributes to the product’s effectiveness as a compact, cost-effective solution for 3G mobile-data applications in North America including usage based insurance (UBI) OBDII pluggable devices. This new product is particularly important because together with the CL865-DUAL, a fully compatible CDMA module, it offers our American customers the opportunity to design an application once and deploy it either on CDMA or HSPA networks in that market.”
