Issaquah, WA -- October 6, 2008 -- Cinterion Wireless Modules (formerly Siemens Wireless Modules), the leading supplier of GSM wireless modules worldwide, announced that its XT65 and XT75 GSM communication modules are approved and commercially available for the North American Market.
The quad-band modules which were designed for economical tracking and tracing solutions have achieved PCTRB, FCC and network certification with the largest North American GSM carrier. The seamless combination of GPS and GSM technologies are made possible through a special integrated design approach of both functionalities, leading to an unrivalled operational coexistence which minimizes interferences while maximizing performance. With Java Open Platform, the pre-approved modules enable easy development of complex Java applications, reduce integration costs and shorten the time it takes to bring a new solution to market.
"The pre-approved XT65 and XT75 modules provide OEMs with a development edge by lowering costs, improving the ease of integration and aiding the certification process which can add months to development timelines," said Peter Fowler, president of the Cinterion Wireless Modules, North America. "These new tracking and tracing modules demonstrate Cinterion's commitment to offering the highest quality products available combined with strong carrier relationships and expert engineering support."
The GPRS based XT65 and EDGE (E-GPRS) based XT75 are ideal for applications such as vehicle tracking, personal emergency call systems, fleet management solutions and navigation systems. Key features of the modules include:
