MINNEAPOLIS, MN (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
Multi-Tech Systems, a leading M2M (machine-to-machine) communications solutions provider, announced today that its SocketModem® iCell intelligent embedded cellular modem has passed Rogers Device validation for data and RF. This means companies can incorporate this ready-to-integrate communications device without pursuing additional carrier certifications on their own, significantly reducing time to market and the costs associated with this process.
Customers considering a module for their communications solution can incur certification costs up to $87,000 and need anywhere from four to ten months to complete the process. In contrast, Multi-Tech’s SocketModem iCell is approved as a complete, standalone modem, eliminating these costs and delays.
“Multi-Tech is excited to offer our device networking solutions that have passed Rogers Device testing and ready for customers to integrate,” said Gregg Zastrow, Multi-Tech Senior Product Marketing Manager. “It provides a cost-effective path for our customers to quickly get activated on Rogers’ network.”
The SocketModem® iCell intelligent cellular modem H5 model is a complete, ready-to-integrate communications device that provides 3G HSPA+ performance. This quick-to-market solution allows developers to add wireless communication and GPS tracking to products with a minimum of development time and expense. The intelligence of the embedded Universal IP® stack allows for automatic/persistent connectivity for mission-critical applications and enhanced M2M functionality. The SocketModem iCell intelligent cellular modems are based on industry-standard open interfaces and utilize Multi-Tech’s Universal Socket design.
