Tiny quadband GSM/GPRS module embedded in auto security devices

27 June 2007 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Telit Wireless Solutions has announced that it has been chosen to power AutoGuard's vehicle protection and monitoring products. Telit's GE864 module was chosen out of numerous options evaluated by the Polish company.

Telit's GE864 module will be integrated in AutoGuard's S4, S2, S3A and S3L devices, as well as in its Personal Localizer.

AutoGuard S4 is designed to protect vehicles against theft and perform vehicle management functions. AutoGuard S2 provides active vehicle protection and management. It combines various outstanding functionalities including receiving signals from 24 GPS satellites, a GSM mobile phone network and 24 hour surveillance through a control centre. AutoGuard S3 was designed in two versions: AutoGuard S3A and AutoGuard S3L. Both solutions allow vehicles to be monitored using a GSM network and located via GPS.

The Personal Localizer is a portable device, similar to a mobile phone, which is equipped with a highly sensitive GPS receiver and features an integrated antenna, a GSM modem and a Bluetooth interface.

The Telit GE864 module is well suited to AutoGuard applications. The advantages of the quadband GSM/GPRS module - believed to be the world's smallest - are numerous. Due to its small external dimensions (30 x 30 x 2,8 mm) and its weight of seven grams, it is especially suitable for applications that require a very compact form. The GE864 is also ideal for applications with large volumes such as automotive and fleet management, due to the innovative BGA concept.
