Telit Helps NimbeLink Build a Family of Embedded, Pre-certified Modems
Telit xE910-series modules power NimbeLink’s Skywire™ embedded modems to deliver fast, reliable, cellular M2M connectivity
RALEIGH, N.C. – March 25, 2014 – Telit Wireless Solutions, a global provider of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, products and services has partnered with NimbeLink, a fast-growing integrator of M2M product development services and products, in order to speed up design of specialized systems for M2M applications. NimbeLink’s Skywire pre-certified embedded modems, which are based on the Telit xE910 family of modules, allow designers to incorporate cellular connectivity into their solutions.
The launch of the Skywire family starts with an embedded 2G CDMA 1xRTT product that is the smallest embedded cellular modem on the market. It employs the Telit CE910-DUAL module that features a compact LGA package as well as the SMT form factor that is pin-to-pin compatible with the xE910 family. This allows solutions to be designed once and be deployed globally. The modem is available with bundled CDMA 1xRTT data plans from leading carriers, allowing developers to add compliant cellular connectivity without having to apply for certification.
Skywire is available with a complete development kit that includes the cellular modem, baseboard, antenna, power supply, debug cables, and cellular service plan. NimbeLink employs Skywire for use in its own TextAlert product, a multi-function cellular gateway for commercial and industrial applications.
“The whole M2M field is growing so quickly that it’s difficult to predict what the market will demand next,” says NimbeLink CEO Scott Schwalbe. “But NimbeLink is in the business of meeting needs as quickly as they appear, and partnering with Telit is a big part of the reason we’re able to do that.”
“NimbeLink is an innovative company that recognized the benefit of our xE910 unified form factor and the design once, deploy globally concept that it enables,” said Mike Ueland, Americas President of Telit Wireless Solutions. “That will facilitate NimbeLink’s expansion into markets that employ network technology other than CDMA.”
