JUNE EDITION OF CONNECTED
Traditionally, M2M platforms have emerged to assist with the development of M2M applications. These M2M platforms have tended to focus on standalone solutions to enable specific process without thought of integration into a wider context. Current M2M applications now support an open application environment allowing developers to easily configure applications that draw inputs from multiple M2M applications.
An M2M / IoT Application Platform brings together application developers, M2M connected devices and a range of niche and specialised M2M platforms and wider enterprise IT systems. The emergence of the M2M/IoT Application Platform introduces us to emerging new M2M platform services such as Thingworx, Axeda or MQTT and to the vendor specific services offered by Sierra Wireless AirVantage.

IoT: New Radiocrafts RC17xxHP-RC232
The RC17xxHP series from Radiocrafts offers narrowband radio performance combined with high output power for long range industrial applications.
The RC17xxHP module series covers all ISM bands below 1 GHz as well as some national bands used for application specific radio communication.
Superior sensitivity and high RF output power gives a very long communication range. The selectivity and blocking properties of these radios makes them ideal for use in critical applications and environments with radio noise from industrial equipment.

IoT Update: New Industrial Protocols modules
IoT: New Turbidity Sensor for Libelium
LTE: New NTC-140W Wi-Fi M2M Router
The NetComm Wireless NTC-140W 4G WiFi M2M Router utilizes the speed and performance capabilities of a 4G/LTE network to deliver seamless M2M connectivity for broad range of M2M applications.
The NTC-140W features two Gigabit Ethernet ports and high speed WiFi connectivity making it an ideal device for high speed networking. The NTC-140W creates reliable point-to-point or point-to-multi-point wide area network (WAN) connections for a variety of mission critical applications such as primary broadband, video surveillance, retail, payments, in-vehicle wireless hotspot and business continuity.
Available in July. For more information on the NTC-140W please click here.
M2M One Voice & SMS
Full SMS capability was introduced this month. Services managed in the M2M One Control Centre can send and receive SMS to and from mobile numbers provided outside M2M One’s network environment, not just those inside the environment.
M2M One now announces the introduction of voice services scheduled for the first week of July. There are M2M application scenarios where voice calls, machine call back, DTMF, and emergency dialing are required across segments like security, automotive, and health care.
Voice pricing details will be released when the feature becomes available, offering a PAYG (Pay As You Go) rate per second, and bundled rates per minute and per ten minutes.
Please contact us for further information regarding the voice feature on M2M One SIM cards.
Tech Tip: Sierra Wireless AirPrime HL8548 LED output
The flash LED output in AirPrime HL8548 is a LED driven by either the PWM1 or PWM2 Output.
Both signals can be used in conjunction with an external transistor for driving a vibrator, or a backlight LED.
