GenAir mPCIe module
GenAir mPCIe LTE module is a reliable smart solution for wireless connectivity nowadays and tomorrow. The module utilizes 4G LTE technology and is optimized for high bandwidth usage via mobile broadband.
The module is based on Gemalto (Cinterion) PLS8-E 4G module in a standard Mini PCI Express form factor. It is high-quality engineered LTE module, designed for industrial-grade M2M applications such as cellular routers, vehicle telematics & tracking, mobile payment systems, safety monitoring and industrial PDAs, and also other M2M applications such as security solutions, medical equipment etc.
Its small form factor with just 3.3 mm in height makes it perfect for integration in the size-challenging and complex M2M applications.
The module is designed to provide excellent and uninterrupted worldwide coverage even while roaming across various cellular networks. It supports multiple Operating Systems.
GenAir PLS8-E supports up to 100 Mbps downlink data rate, providing data service under European GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSPA+/LTE networks. The module also includes enhanced features like firmware upgrade over USB interface, SIM Tool Kit, and Gemalto’s (Cinterion) enhanced AT command set.
All GenAir modules comply with the EU RoHS Directive and regional certification.
