CeBIT EDITION OF CONNECTED
May 2013

Driving the M2M market forwards are key trends such as consolidation among various players in the M2M value chain and standardization along with a growth in data usage, cloud computing and developer engagement for M2M applications.

M2M Connectivity will be exhibiting at CeBIT this month where we will be presenting timely and informative demonstrations on Sierra Wireless’s AirVantage M2M Cloud and M2M One data services. We will also be featuring new cellular and satellite products including 3G modems, GNSS Receivers, Iridium SBD trackers and routers/gateways for LTE, 3G and satellite.

Attend the M2M Hour at CeBIT scheduled on May 28 & 29 at 12pm to hear Daryl Chambers of M2M Connectivity present a session on developing M2M applications.  In this hour, KORE Wireless will be addressing network connectivity and Moving Data will address data management.

Further information and registration for free entry to CeBIT is in this newsletter. We hope to see you there.

NEW Quake Q-Pro Turn Key Application 2.32
Quake Q-ProThe Q-Pro Turn Key application provided by QUAKE turns the modem into a simple tracking or monitoring system over Iridium, Orbcomm, Inmarsat IDP, and 3G/GSM.

The application requires only the configuration of message and transmission parameters in order to run which allows customers to use the Q-Pro as an ‘out of the box’ solution.

Turn key app 2.32 enables the control of message format, relays and the I/Os remotely by sending OTA message by email, satellite, SMS or through TCP.  The message consists of the following data: Message Counter, Panic-geofence alerts, Julian time, Modem ID, GPS co-ordinates, Altitude, Speed, Heading, DIO readings, Analog Input reading Power supply voltage and CANBUS J1939 data or pulse counts. The app can be configured to send all or specific parts of the message..

Tech Tip:  How to get GPS NMEA strings from Q2698.

First make sure the Q2698 has been loaded with either the Extended AT application or GPS AT Sample application:
Tech Tip

 

 

 

 
Then follow the commands sequence as below on either USB AT command port or physical UART.
“>” refers to from host CPU to module.
>AT+WOPEN=1

>AT+GPSINIT=2
>OK
<+GPSEVINIT: 1
>AT+GPSSTART=3

<+GPSEVSTART: 1
<+GPSEVPOS: 0

NMEA strings will steam from physical UART,
