Taking Award-Winning Technology Inside – NimbeLink Announces Global HSPA+ Skywire® Embedded Modem
With the addition of these new products, NimbeLink now offers both embedded and external modems – and they are all end-device certified!
Plymouth, MN, August 25th 2016 – NimbeLink®, an award-winning developer of IoT and M2M solutions, today announced that the company is extending its Skywire line of cellular modems with the addition of its first embedded products, the UMTS/GSM modems, which provide all of the benefits current users of Skywire modems have come to expect, enjoy and benefit from. The new product line includes an HSPA+ modem with fallback capability to GPRS and EDGE and optional GPS/GNSS.
“Like NimbeLink’s current Skywire CDMA and LTE modems, the new GSM modems are also fully end-device certified,” says NimbeLink CEO Scott Schwalbe. “Additionally, they are the smallest embedded modems in the industry and are supported with full documentation, development kits, and microprocessor capes and adapters.”
Skywire modem certifications include FCC, IC, PTCRB, GCF, and CE, as well as multiple carrier certifications. The alternative to using certified modems is to begin with a chipset or a cellular module, engineer them into a product and spend large amounts of time and money obtaining the necessary certifications. Skywire modems let developers skip the costly and time-consuming testing and certification process.
All embedded Skywire modems share the Skywire standard interface, allowing easy upgrade or product rollout to multiple geographic markets without forcing developers to reengineer their boards. The Skywire modem’s U.FL port provides antenna flexibility, the modems only require voltage and a UART or USB connection.
NimbeLink External Modems and Routers
NimbeLink also offers external cellular devices. These easy-to-deploy, external modems and routers are ideal for adding efficient, affordable cellular connectivity to existing products. The Skywire E2C Link router converts a device’s Ethernet output for cellular transmission. The Skywire S2C Link converts serial output for cellular transmission.
Created by award-winning developers, NimbeLink’s cellular modems are the easiest way to speed cellular-enabled IoT and M2M products to market. E2C Link routers and S2C Link modems help extend the life of existing products. And with the addition of GSM capabilities, in both embedded and plug-in Ethernet and serial link form, Skywire modems are the economical choice for global cellular connectivity.
