Cinterion Launches Multimode M2M Module on Verizon Wireless Network for Global Voice and Data Communications
SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--
Cinterion (News - Alert), Gemalto's (Euronext NL 0000400653 GTO) machine-to-machine
(M2M) business segment and a global leader in cellular M2M communication
technology, today announces the launch of PXS8. The new product is the
first industrial-grade multimode M2M module to enable global roaming for
voice and data communications.
The new module opens up new business opportunities for global
enterprises looking to launch M2M solutions on Verizon Wireless'
network. Developed for use on Verizon Wireless network and its
international roaming partners, the new module supports both global 2G
and 3G standards, eliminating the need for multiple designs for
worldwide M2M solutions. Verizon's M2M customers can now benefit from
moving 3G service across the Verizon Wireless networks and abroad with
one M2M module and one solution design.
Offering global high-speed connectivity and a surface mount, ultra-slim
form factor, the PXS8 is ideal for data rich and space constrained M2M
applications such as industrial PDAs, global tracking and tracing, video
surveillance or onboard vehicle Internet solutions. With the latest
long-life chipset technology and a footprint prepared for forthcoming
LTE (News - Alert) modules, the new module provides a flexible path to the future for
M2M applications requiring next-generation LTE mobile broadband
"Gemalto's (News - Alert) Cinterion module, working seamlessly across Verizon
Wireless and our roaming partners worldwide will create an effective
environment for multinational companies to create new M2M business
opportunities," said John Sullivan, executive director of
machine-to-machine platform for Verizon Enterprise Solutions.
"This is an important development bridging the boundaries between two
technologies and thus advancing the state of machine-to-machine
applications on a global basis," added Norbert Muhrer (News - Alert), Senior
Vice President, Gemalto Cinterion M2M segment. "We are glad to build
M2M business on top of the well established partnership between Verizon
and Gemalto and thus stimulate new business opportunities."
