Telit Wireless Solutions (Raleigh, N.C., U.S.A.), the North American M2M technology arm of Telit Communications, announced on Wednesday that two of its 3G M2M modules have been certified on the AT&T (Dallas, Texas, U.S.A.) network.
The two 3G modules, the HE863-NAD and HE863-NAR, are HSPA M2M modules in a surface-mounted ball grid array (BGA) form factor that work with high-bandwidth applications such as surveillance, tracking and consumer electronics devices. Both HE863 modules support HSPA with 7.2Mbps download speeds and 5.8Mbps upload speeds, says Telit Wireless.
HE863-NAD is a data-only module specifically designed for the M2M community and the HE863-NAR supports data along with analog and digital voice providing the ability to include voice communications in applications that require this feature, according to Telit Wireless.
The HE863 provides access to UMTS/HSPA networks with fall back to GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks, designed for connected devices intended for long-term use and that require rapid data transfer. Regional variants of the module featuring the same form factor provide worldwide compatibility, allowing application developers to design one device for global deployment, says Telit Wireless.
The HE863 is 31.4 x 41.4 x 2.9 mm and operates at an extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
