Squid-PRO M2M Cell Tower Tester with Telit Modules Guides Antenna and Modem Placement for Successful Remote M2M Deployments
“With Telit’s reliable M2M modules, the Squid-PRO effectively takes the guesswork out of M2M installations, ensuring the long-term functionality and success of customers’ M2M solutions,” said Scott Schober, President and CEO of Berkeley Varitronics Systems. “Many of our customers use Telit modules for their remote monitoring applications and can now take advantage of the Squid-PRO to simplify the deployment process.”
Leveraging the Telit modules for cellular connectivity, this simple handheld device includes a multi-band antenna for enhanced sensitivity, an integrated GPS receiver for location-based measurements, an ultra-sharp and bright OLED display and a track ball for user-controlled operation. Additionally, there is no SIM activation required, and the tool can operate for 8 full hours on a single charge.
“From industrial monitoring to connected ATM machines, many organizations are realizing the value of using cellular M2M technology to communicate with remote assets, but the benefits are contingent upon the devices both being installed and working properly,” said Mike Ueland, senior vice president and general manager of Telit Wireless Solutions North America. “The Squid-PRO is a practical tool that ensures the success of these applications and proves the inherent benefit of M2M in terms of operational efficiency.”
Telit’s CC864-DUAL, a CDMA-1xRTT wireless module, features an ultra-compact form factor ideal for medium-to-high-volume M2M applications, mobile data and computing devices. Featuring the same unified form factor is the UC864-G module, allowing integrators and developers to design their applications once and take advantage of the truly global coverage and service flexibility afforded by the combination of the two most prevalent cellular technologies worldwide. The DE910-DUAL is a dual band EV-DO wireless module in Telit’s newest xE910 form factor family. For more information about Telit products, visit www.telit.com.
