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.  We've recognized a great demand for its capabilities that offer our customers the opportunity to design for a global market," said Dominikus Hierl, CMO Telit Communications PLC.  "This module increases functionality while maintaining Telit's core features of compact size, reliability and durability. Its success can be attributed to the simple module replacement based on the world's only ‘Unified Form Factor and Family concept' using identical form factors and logical interface for GSM, CDMA and WCDMA modules."

Single platform, multiple use

With its ultra-compact design, and extended operating temperature range, the Telit UC864-G is the ideal platform for medium-to-high-volume M2M applications and mobile data and computing devices. Additional features such as integrated TCP/IP and UDP, and a three channel ADC provide extended functionality, adding value to the end application without adding cost.

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.
