Cinterion launches M2M solution for secure wireless connectivityThe EHS5 from Cinterion is an ultra compact, high-speed M2M communication module providing secure wireless connectivity for a wide variety of industrial applications. The new Cinterion solution features a complete client Java runtime optimized for microcontrollers and other resource-constrained devices, providing Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) with a cost-effective, flexible platform for bringing advanced M2M technology to market faster.
Sharing the same compact footprint as Cinterion 2G products, this next-generation solution enables network migration within a single design while ensuring long-lasting, future-proof applications. The solution’s Java-based application environment enables lean system architecture by running software directly on the Cinterion module, eliminating the expense of additional co-processors and memory chips and making applications smaller and less complex. The module’s Java Virtual Machine (JVM) serves as a hub connecting application software with security elements and end user computer systems to greatly ease integration and deployment. In addition, it enables value added features such as over-the-air (OTA) provisioning and remote updates of data and applications, which are crucial for keeping M2M solutions current over the long life of applications that can often exceed 10 years.
The Cinterion Java modules connect Java-based machines, devices, and sensors at the edge of an enterprise to the backend Enterprise Resource Planning systems, sending data where it is needed most for successful and dependable business operations.
The compact EHS5 solution measures 18.8 x 27.6 x 2.3 mm. It is available in two variants: EHS5-US (850/1900 MHz) for North America, and EHS5-E (900/2100 MHz) assuring global coverage.
