Maestro Wireless Solutions, the Hong Kong-based M2M specialist today announces the official release of the M100 3G and M100 3G XT, the latest additions to its Maestro 100 series.
Following the success of the Maestro 100 and Maestro 100evo range with over 300,000 units deployed through the world, the new M100 3G has been designed to provide the same level of quality and to define a new gold standard in M2M modem.
The M100 3G features a dual or tri-band UMTS module making it available worldwide, industrial temperature support up to 75 degree, 2 GPIO and voice support. It is also fully backward compatible with existing GSM/GPRS/EDGE network. The M100 3G XT adds support for USB2.0 with a mini-USB connector and for gpsOneXTRA.

Devices are delivered with the Smart Pack II, Maestro’s application to ease device setup and network registration. This application includes much needed features for system integrators such as auto baud-rate detection, auto TCP/UDP connection, self-healing protocol in case of network failure or setup of DynDNS services in a few mouse clicks.
