Basingstoke, UK TDC (Telecom Design Communications) has developed a dual-band GSM Java terminal which combines the Siemens TC45 with Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) in a plug and play platform.
The TDC GSM Java Terminal enables the use of the Java Virtual Machine for local hosting of custom applications. The Terminal is designed for development purposes only, however, if the device is to be used in a stand-alone application a CE mark must be obtained.
Using Java technology, external processing is no longer required for enabling GSM/GPRS communications, reducing the number of additional components and making use of an integrated TCP/IP stack.
Measuring 65 x 74 x 33mm and weighing 135g, the Terminal will be suitable for applications in telemetry and telematic sectors such as fleet management, vending, GSM gateways, security and remote monitoring including gas, water or electricity.
