Option completes LGA module interoperability tests for NTT DOCOMO network
Option's GTM 601W wireless LGA module combines GSM/HSPA, GPS/ GLONASS and circuit-switched voice in a small and ultra-thin form factor
Option's GTM 601W wireless module brings together GSM/HSPA, GPS/ GLONASS and circuit-switched voice; all on a component the size of a postage stamp and as thin as a Yen. As such, the GTM 601W is designed for a wide variety of mobile devices including tablets, consumer electronic devices, netbooks, routers and industrial handheld devices. It is also a perfect fit for a wide range of high bandwidth M2M applications such as digital signage, automotive, security cameras, and more.
Bernard Schaballie, General Manager of Embedded Solutions at Option commented, "for Option the IOT represents another milestone in our collaboration and further demonstrates our experience and expertise in bringing trusted embedded solutions to market. Connectivity is already moving into new markets and verticals beyond 'traditional' terminals. Network operators need to provide connectivity, security and a seamless user experience in a whole range of mobile devices."
Due to its ultra-thin form factor and excellent heat dissipation characteristics, and with integrated GPS, voice, and optional EVDO capabilities, the GTM 601W embedded solution is perfect for integration in small consumer electronics devices or broadband M2M applications.
