Melbourne, Australia – October 28, 2009: M2M Connectivity, the Australian and New Zealand distributor of Wavecom modems & embedded modules has launched the WISMO218 and WISMO228 modules from Wavecom’s WISMO® (WIreless Standard MOdem) family of entry level GSM/GPRS modems for M2M applications.
The WISMO218 and WISMO228 offer voice and data connectivity and are a cost-efficient option providing WWAN connectivity in a highly compact form factor measuring 25mm x 25mm x 2.8mm. Both modules combine the benefits of ease of use, superior quality and reliable supply at a very competitive price and without compromising M2M industry specific requirements. The WISMO218 is specifically designed for M2M systems being deployed in Europe, Asia and any other country that has 900/1800MHz network coverage. The WISMO228 includes TCP/IP stack and is specifically designed for M2M systems being deployed where transcontinental roaming is required such as between Europe and the Americas requiring 850/900/1800/1900MHz network coverage.
Both the WISMO218 and WISMO 228 modems are supported by Expresso, a discover and learn tool to get your modem up and running in less than 5 minutes. Expresso is a simple Windows® tool for fast configuration of modems and easy access to basic modem features. The easy-to-use graphical interface offered by Expresso enables access to these features while simultaneously visualising the AT commands that will be needed in the product development. The software enables the developer to discover the connected device, configure it and perform a range of standard operations such as sending an SMS or setting up a GPRS connection to the Internet.
