M2M vendor Telit (Raleigh, US) has launched a Mini PCI Express card with an embedded M2M module designed for industrial applications.
The Mini-PCIe adapter card provides 3G cellular data, voice, and video communications for embedded PCs in a variety of commercial and industrial applications, including ATMs, kiosks, digital signage, surveillance and fleet management. Telit says it allows application developers to more easily integrate M2M capabilities into their solutions.
“Cellular Mini PCI Express cards have previously been a niche market but we expect it to grow significantly with the increase of M2M applications and the need for both high-performance motherboards and cellular connectivity for remote, off-site solutions,” said Dominikus Hierl, chief marketing officer at Telit Wireless Solutions, in a press release.
Telit says the new product is available now and scheduled to ship in large volumes by September 2012.
