The new Gemalto Cinterion PLS8 LTE cellular machine-to-machine (M2M) module offers a smart solution for wireless connectivity today and in the future. With the newest 3GPP Rel. 9 LTE technology, PLS8 is optimized for high bandwidth computing, enabling speeds up to 100 Mbps for downlink and 50 Mbps for uplink.
PLS8 and its variants, PLS8-E and PLS8-US, provide true worldwide coverage and reliability even while roaming across different wireless networks. For investment protection, PLS8 supports multi designs due to footprint compatibility with Gemalto M2M’s 3G/GSM and CDMA Cinterion modules PHS8 and PXS8/PVS8.
PLS8 offers an ideal communication solution for the challenging requirements of a variety of M2M applications such as ruggedized mobile computing, security solutions, medical equipment, payment systems and gateway routers.
Two antenna pads enable diversity support allowing PLS8 to provide improved data speeds. An optimized GPS antenna path eliminates blanking on GPS and provides more consistent performance.
Gemalto M2M’s unique type of LGA technology enables optimized heat dissipation that prevents warping and gives customers the freedom to select the most beneficial soldering paste for each individual application.
Like all Cinterion products, the PLS8 comes with full type approval (FTA) and is certified by the largest global network operators.
