Offering a wide variety of approved communication options using the same Universal Socket footprint is important to our customers. -Gregg Zastrow, Senior Product Marketing Manager
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
Multi-Tech Systems, a leading M2M (machine-to-machine) communications solutions provider, announced new models of the SocketModem® Cell and iCell family of embedded cellular modems. Each is approved by Verizon Wireless as an end-device, saving customers significant time and costs associated with pursuing approvals. In addition, these modems are now available with either a serial or USB interface and offer options in either 2G or 3G CDMA technologies, providing more flexibility to meet customer needs.
The new SocketModem Cell embedded cellular modems are complete, ready-to-integrate, communications devices that offer 3G EV-DO performance. These quick-to-market communications devices allow developers to add wireless communication to products with a minimum of development time and expense. The intelligence of the embedded Universal IP® stack of the SocketModem iCell allows for automatic/persistent connectivity for mission-critical applications and enhanced M2M functionality including GPS tracking. Both solutions are based on industry-standard open interfaces and utilize Multi-Tech’s Universal Socket design.
“Multi-Tech now offers an EV-DO option to the popular SocketModem Cell family,” said Gregg Zastrow, Multi-Tech Senior Product Marketing Manager. “Offering a wide variety of approved communication options using the same Universal Socket footprint is important to our customers.”
