M2M Connectivity

NOVEMBER EDITION OF CONNECTED

November 2012

The latest news from GSA (Global mobile Suppliers Association) confirms that 1800 MHz is the most popular band for 4G/LTE systems deployments worldwide. LTE1800 is used in over 37% of the 113 commerical networks currently operating with a further 195 commercial network deployments in progress. Optus and Telstra have LTE 1800 networks running in Australia and M2M Connectivity can supply the Sierra Wireless MC7710 module today to work on these networks as well as a growing range of LTE routers.

M2M Connectivity introduces the NV08C GNSS receivers from NVS Technologies AG. These receivers utilize GPS, GLONASS and QZSS systems and are ready for future systems including GALILEO and COMPASS to ensure the highest availability of navigation signals and provide better performance, accuracy and reliability.  For our local developers, using these NVS receivers allows you to offer a highter level GNSS solution to your customers for a very small premium over standard GPS.

It is nearly the end of another year.  Our office will be closed from the 24 December until the 7th January.  Please advise us if you will be requiring deliveries in this period so that this can be arranged.

Tech Tip

Tech Tip:   RCM – Consolidated Compliance Mark Australia and New Zealand

The Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM) replaces the C-tick and A-tick marks on the 1st March, 2013.

The new national Electrical Equipment Safety Scheme (EESS) introduced at this time will require the use of the RCM and? will replace the current state and territory based electrical safety approval systems. The use of the RCM will require manufacturers, importers and suppliers to register products on the new EESS national data base. The RCM will be a single compliance mark and may only be used after establishing compliance with all applicable regulations including EMC, Telecoms, Radiocoms, Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) and electrical safety.
