Cinterion launches high-speed automotive M2M module

On Tuesday, Cinterion (Munich, Germany), a supplier of wireless modules for machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, announced the launch of a high-speed automotive M2M module with a triple-diversity antenna design. According to Cinterion, the AH3 delivers communications across global 2G and 3G cellular networks for applications such as, onboard vehicle computing, internet access, fleet management as well as automatic eCall and emergency roadside assistance and integrated hands free calling.

The module's SIM Access Profile enables integration of additional wireless devices, connection with smartphones and software applications, while analog audio processing and advanced voice support provide hands-free capabilities, says Cinterion. AH3's compact, single-sided design shares a common footprint with forthcoming LTE modules.

The ruggedized AH3 module features a triple-diversity antenna concept that is based on pogo pads enabling mounting at reduced total cost of ownership. According to Cinterion, the three antennas allow always-on communications with simultaneous voice, data and continuous GPS tracking. The module’s extended temperature range and power management preserve battery power, says the company.

"There's tremendous opportunity and demand in the automotive sector as a growing number of manufacturers are leveraging the power of broadband cellular M2M communication in cars, trucks and other machines to provide drivers and mobile businesses with greater and richer access to information and remote diagnostics," says Norbert Muhrer, CEO at Cinterion.

The module, which will be available in the beginning of the second quarter of 2012, comes in two versions: AH3-US which supports AWS band in Northern America, and AH3-W which adds 900 MHz to cover all other world regions.
