Single-band CE910-SL is a CDMA450 module for Utilities looking to manage their smart meters and assets in a private network
London – UK, February 5, 2015 – Telit Wireless Solutions, a global enabler of the Internet of the Things (IoT), today announced the launch of a new cellular module, adding to the rich xE910 family. The CE910-SL was designed specifically for applications in areas where CDMA450 coverage exists as a commercial mobile network operation or where it can be licensed to be developed as a private network by utilities, emergency response organizations, and other similar government and private groups. The CE910-SL provides excellent in-building performance making it ideal for smart utilility meters frequently installed deep inside residential or commercial dwellings.
The CE910-SL is a single-band 450MHz CDMA 1xRTT wireless module. Its compact LGA form factor is pin-to-pin compatible with the xE910 family, allowing for easy integration of different 2G to 3G wireless technologies into the same design. The CE910-SL enables reliable and secure CDMA cellular connectivity in up to 153.6kbps full-duplex data rates. It is the ideal platform for low data throughput applications on the 450MHz, block C band recently released in a number of markets. Applications such as smart metering, telemetry, ATMs, POS terminals, and security are the product’s top markets. Additional features such as UART/USB interfaces and integrated TCP/IP and UDP/IP stacks provide extended functionality, adding value to the customer application without adding cost.
“The CE910-SL extends the reach of Telit xE910 form factor family, enabling integrators and developers to leverage extensive industry familiarity with xE910 modules and quickly design applications to take advantage of this exciting new market opportunity created by the opening of CDMA450 in Europe and other regions”, said Felix Marchal, Chief Product Officer at Telit. “This module will certainly help accelerate the roll out and commercial launch of these networks by reducing the time to market of smart meters and other devices in development, to operate under them.”
