Wireless Network Systems from Telit
aim to offer long term and compatible solutions for wireless modem applications including GSM and UMTS (3G). The release of the Unified Form Factor concept from Telit can be run on all Australia and New Zealand networks.
The Unified Form Factor (UFF) is a wireless concept of a products family characterized by the same mechanical and electrical form factor with different radio access technology.
This new approach protects customer’s investment by giving you the possibility to migrate with the simple plug and play switch of your module with other wireless modules in the Unified Form Factor range without changing your application.
In this way Telit offers easy access to different cellular technologies, certifications or bandwidth. For example if you develop applications based on today’s mobile operator GSM/GPRS cellular technology, if required it might be upgraded in the future to higher data speed capability such as UMTS/HSDPA.
Simple integration and greater productivity
- Increase of the efficiency in the use of the investments assigned to the development of the application (NRE), resulting in higher ROI, thus justifying the business choice of the UFF products
- Products that are designed to bring technology enhancements to the integrators, such as higher data rates and new wireless standards while maintaining backwards compatibility in form factor and logical interfaces
- Ease of integration
- Telit as a single supplier of wireless modems
- The customer can focus on its core business and application, not the management of operations and procurement required for wireless modems
- One single application for different markets
Within the Unified Form Factor are the following Wireless Modules:
- GC864-QUAD: Quad Band GSM/GPRS, with or without SIM Holder, Python enabled
- UC864-G: 850/2100MHz UMTS HSDPA, suitable for Telstra Australia (Next G) or Telecom NZ(XT)
- UC864-WD: 900/2100MHZ UMTS WEDGE, suitable for Vodafone Aust/NZ (3G) or Optus Australia
Telit, acknowledging the requirements of the developers, has taken great care to minimize any difference in the interface of the products with the Unified Form Factor, nevertheless some minor differences are still present.
This is due to the fact that different technologies have different electrical and mechanical characteristics. However, the application can, with some care, easily accommodate multiple wireless modems.
