The new Cinterion PHS8 HSPA+ cellular machine-to-machine (M2M) module offers a smart solution for wireless connectivity today and in the future. With the latest HSPA+ technology, PHS8 is optimized for high bandwidth and allows speeds up to 14.4 Mbps for downlink and 5.7 Mbps for uplink. PHS8 is available in three versions, the PHS8-P with five bands UMTS for true global roaming and two local variants, the PHS8-US (USA) and PHS8-E (Europe) with dual band only, for improved TCO. PHS8 provides true worldwide coverage and reliability even while roaming across different wireless network technologies. By enabling a full range of M2M functions and features, PHS8 protects your technology investment by ensuring reliable communications today while allowing room for growth to 4G cellular technology on evolving GSM networks for many years to come.
PHS8 with its variants 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 PHS8 to provide improved dataspeeds even under fluctuating 3G network conditions. The GPS antenna path is optimized for elimination of blanking on GPS for consistent performance.
