Cinterion Wireless Modules announced that its new Connector Modules, TC63i, TC65i, MC75i, which are part of the recently launched Evolution Platform, are shipping in North America with mission critical AT&T Mobility, FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and PTCRB (PCS-1900 type certification review board) pre-approval and certifications. These certifications speed the time to market for new solutions and decrease development costs for customers. The new Connector Modules offer significant improvements including a more compact size, backward compatibility with existing platform products and expanded features for optimized performance on GSM networks.
“Cinterion’s scalable Connector Modules offer improvements in size, processing and extreme environmental operating conditions and were designed to fit the widest range of applications and budgets, while allowing complete flexibility between modules as technology needs change,” said Peter Fowler, Regional President, Cinterion Wireless Modules, Americas. “The modules have been rigorously tested for safety and performance and have earned crucial FCC, PTCRB and AT&T Mobility certification which allows OEMs and developers to significantly decrease the time and expense it takes to bring an end-user’s solution to market.”
“The Cinterion Connector Modules are an outstanding addition to AT&T Mobility’s roster of certified specialized devices, of which there are now more than 500,” said Carolyn Billings, executive director, Product Marketing Management, for AT&T Mobility. “The certification of these modules from an industry leader like Cinterion provides our customers in the M2M industry with a greater degree of choice in which to enable wireless monitoring and other applications. The AT&T Mobility certification also gives customers the assurance that these modules have been tested to ensure they operate in an efficient and reliable manner in conjunction with the AT&T Mobility wireless data network.”
