PTCRB Approval for Telit 3.5G Module

Telit Wireless Solutions, the Italy-based M2M (machine-to-machine) mobile technology arm of Telit Communications PLC, has revealed that its UC864-G module has been awarded PTCRB (PTS Type Certification Review Board) certification. PTCRB certification is an industry operator requirement needed to be met in order to sell GSM cellular communication products in selected European countries and the Americas. This is Telits first UMTS/HSDPA module to receive PTCRB certification.
The UC864-G is a 3.5G wireless data module designed to be fully compatible with GSM/GPRS, UMTS/HSDPA and EDGE cellular networks. This enables integrators and developers to design their applications only once and take advantage of the global coverage and service flexibility afforded by the combination of the two most prevalent cellular technologies worldwide. The PTCRB-certified UC864-G module offers a radio structure comprised of dual-band support to GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band UMTS/HSDPA.
This certification is the first step to bringing our entire UMTS/HSDPA product line to the North American market, says Telit Communications CMO, Dominikus Hierl. This module increases functionality, while maintaining Telits core features of compact size, reliability and durability.
Telit says that with its ultra-compact design, and extended operating temperature range, the UC864-G is the ideal platform for medium-to-high-volume M2M applications and mobile data and computing devices. The UC864-G is also fully backward compatible to existing EDGE and GSM/GPRS networks through quad-band radios. As with other Telit GSM/GPRS products, the UC864-G boasts a range of functions for over-the-air maintenance, management of firmware and application software in the module, and Jamming Detect & Report.
