Telit Wireless Solutions, a source of machine-to-machine (M2M) equipment, has announced that two of its modules have been approved for use on Verizon’s network.
The DE910-DUAL and the CE910-DUAL modules can be used in a wide variety of applications, including mobile computing, smart meters, vending, point-of-sale systems and in telematics.
"Leveraging either the high-speed DE910-DUAL or the cost-effective CE910-DUAL module, Telit customers will benefit from both the support and reliable network connectivity Verizon Wireless offers developers in creating cutting-edge M2M devices," said Mike Ueland, senior vice president and general manager of Telit Wireless Solutions North America.
The modules come in a compact Land Grid Array (LGA) package, which measures 28.2 millimeters by 28.2 millimeters by 2.05 millimeters, and has an operating range of -30 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius.
The CE910-DUAL has a built-in 12 Mbps USB 2.0 port and a full TCP/IP stack.
Both modules can use 1xRTT and EV-DO Rev. 0.
Telit is working with the Franco-Canadian Black Swan Technologies to increase its presence in North America with the White Box/NS-700, an automated Vehicle Location Device (VLD).
"The White Box is a truly accomplished AVL solution for the most challenging environments," Ueland said. "Black Swan Technology can now benefit from Telit's deep experience in telematics and our commitment to supplying embedded modules that can operate in difficult environmental conditions."
"With the great success represented by GCx Mountain's selection of the White Box as its mobile platform for all their services, and Telit's technical and logistical support, we are bound to see substantial growth particularly in North America where we are seeing a rise in demand for high-end AVL solutions which like the White Box can deliver mobile asset information precisely and reliably," said Gael Ollard, president and CEO at Black Swan Technology.
Telit was also named one of the key M2M vendors in a report by Research and Markets. The report predicts a CAGR of the market by 16.96 percent between 2012 and 2016.
