Worldwide Coverage and High Reliability while Roaming across Different Wireless Networks.
Quectel Wireless Solutions, a leading global supplier of GSM/GPRS, UMTS/HSPA/LTE and GNSS modules, solutions and services, today announced the introduction of UC20-G UMTS/HSPA+ module, based on Qualcomn Technologies, Inc. chipsets and supporting five UMTS/HSPA+ bands (800/850/900/1900/2100MHz) and providing ubiquitous 2G coverage with quad band GPRS and EDGE class 12. UC20-G delivers up to 14.4Mbps downlink and 5.76Mbps uplink data rates.
Operating on both GSM/GPRS and UMTS/HSPA+ networks, UC20-G provides true worldwide coverage and reliability even while roaming across different wireless network technologies. It is layout-compatible with Quectel UMTS/HSDPA UC15 and GSM/GPRS M10 modules and supports GPS and GLONASS location technologies.
Jaron Xu, Quectel Marketing Director, said:
“The UC20-G UMTS/HSPA+ module is a new member of Quectel’s 3G products. Its UMTS-based modem provides data connectivity on HSPA+, HSDPA, HSUPA, WCDMA, EDGE, GPRS networks.”
“UC20-G, banded for global market and UC20-A, UC20-E, each banded for Asian and European market constitute a comprehensive product portfolio of Quectel UC20 series. By using Qualcomn Technologies’ Gobi 3G solution, UC20 series offers our customer the technology flexibility to address the requirements of M2M products and drive 2G to 3G migration in global market.”
UC20 provides power saving solutions by DPO (Dynamic Power Optimization). Battery life is extended and talk and standby time are maximized dramatically through DPO, which attempts to turn off GNSS RF parts, reduces current consumption up to 50% without impact on TTFF.
UC20 is fully digital audio capable, supports both GPS and GLONASS location technologies, and provides full-duplex PCM input and output. These features combined with the up to 14.4Mbps downlink and 5.76Mbps uplink data rates make UC20 ideal for surveillance and security applications. A rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces (USB/UART/PCM/ADC/NETLIGHT/SD/Rx-diversity) and abundant functions (USB drivers for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows CE, Linux, Android/eCall/GNSS) extend the applicability of UC20 module to a wide range of M2M applications such as automotive, metering, tracking systems, security solutions, routers, wireless POS, mobile computing devices, PDA, and tablet PC.
