Network-Ready Certified 4G Module and Streamlined Integration Tools Speed Development Cycle and Time to Market for New Consumer and M2M Solutions
AT&T and Option, the wireless technology company, today announced a new AT&T Connection Kit for emerging device developers, the first featuring a 4G (HSPA+) module.
The industry leading AT&T Connection Kit program provides the tools and environment necessary to streamline device development and optimize performance on the AT&T network.
The newest connection kit leverages Option’s LGA module GTM601and will help fast track the certification cycle for device developers seeking to introduce new 4G connected devices. This second-generation LGA module is an ideal solution for integration in small consumer electronics devices or broadband M2M applications.
Key features of the GTM601 module include:
- LGA (Land Grid Array) design allowing a very slim product — 26.8 mm by 31.8 mm by only 2 mm thin — with excellent heat dissipation, enabling 4G connectivity in super-thin form factors without sacrificing feature completeness or robustness.
- Worldwide compatibility — support for GSM/HSPA/HSPA+ in the world’s most widely used spectrum bands, assuring 4G broadband speeds and 2G/2.5G worldwide connectivity.
- Plug-and-play software libraries are available for the most popular mobile platforms. For Android-based devices Option offers a RIL, GPS HAL and Audio HAL, for Windows CE 6.0 and Windows Mobile 6.5 a RIL and GPS driver can be provided.
- Reliable GPS and GLONASS support for applications that require worldwide location information.
The AT&T Connection Kit featuring the Option module also includes AT&T SIM cards, data capacity for testing, access to AT&T Control Center, powered by Jasper Wireless, and best practice guidelines to bring approved devices to market faster than ever before.
