The Gemalto Cinterion PLS62-W wireless module delivers seamless global connectivity providing highly efficient, Multi Band LTE Cat 1 communications plus fallback to 2G and 3G when needed. The leading edge solution enables M2M optimized speeds of 10Mbit/s down-load and 5Mbit/s uplink making it ideal for industrial IoT applications that require the longevity of LTE networks along with reliability in regions where 4G is still emerging. The PLS62-W module is well suited for applications such as global track and trace, smart metering, and fleet management solutions.
The PLS62-W provides worldwide coverage and reliability through roaming over various global wireless networks. It offers 12 Band FDD-LTE, Seven Band 3G HSPA/UMTS (WCDMA/FDD) and Quad Band 2G GSM. A powerful Java embedded system leverages the latest Java ME 3.2 platform enabling fast and easy application development by sharing internal resources such as memory, a large existing code base and proven software building blocks. This helps reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and time to market.
The module also uses multi-threading programming to simultaneously host and run multiple applications and protocols. An extended security concept with the latest TLS/SSL engine provides secure and reliable TCP/IP connectivity while an enriched internal flash file system enables free firmware updates over-the-air (FOTA) when required.
