Embedded 3G solution
31 August 2011, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

To enable developers to take advantage of the vast improvements in South African data network coverage and performance over traditional land-line options, Otto Wireless Solutions recently launched its MP2A-5220 solution to the market.

The MP2A-5220 has an integrated PCI express mini card which provides multimode and multiband connectivity to the GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/WCDMA wireless networks. The device supports WCDMA HSDPA connectivity up to 7,2 Mbps and HSUPA up to 5,76 Mbps. The integrated mini card also has an onboard GPS receiver which offers full GPS functionality, continuously tracking all satellites in view and providing accurate satellite position data. It supports A-GPS as well as standalone-GPS.

This solution gives integrators and OEMs the opportunity to install an internal and secure data card inside a conventional PC or server and access wireless 3G connectivity on any GSM network, depending on the SIM card being used. This solution is not locked to any specific network, so the user has the freedom to choose which network gives them the best coverage and lowest data costs in their specific location.

In certain rural areas, where landlines are non-existent, this solution can provide high-speed wireless 3G Internet connectivity. The solution is installed into the standard PCIe slot on a PC motherboard and can be configured via most Windows operating systems. The system is well suited for PCs used in a point of sale environment, where a conventional 3G USB modem could easily be misplaced or stolen. The mini card is fastened securely to the inside of the PC or server, making access to the modem difficult.

The MP2A-5220 kit consists of the MP2A-5220 3G PCIe card, two 3G antennas, two RF antenna pigtails and a USB2.0 cable.
