14 May 2008 News

Electrocomp, a leading distributor in the South African wireless module market, is now evolving into an M2M solutions provider that offers customers various options when it comes to wireless modules. Being the sole local distributor of the Siemens range of wireless modules in South Africa, Electrocomp now offers customers application-based solutions which will assist in designing a product ideally suited for their market.

Gerrie van Heerden, the product line manager for wireless modules, states: "We are changing the way that Electrocomp distributes components. We are no longer just a distributor, but a company that offers the customer a complete M2M solution."

Some of the solutions Electrocomp now offers include the following:

APN

With its APN solution, Electrocomp offers customers the ability to do GPRS data transfers cost effectively. Customers have access to a fixed IP address as well as 10 MB of data per SIM card.

Design development

Electrocomp has a qualified team of electronic engineers which can provide assistance to customers with their GSM/GPRS/GPS designs. Performing design work from schematic to prototype level, and with a qualified software development team, Electrocomp offers the customer a complete package. The company is also in the process of setting up a technical laboratory facility where customers can test their products.

Technical support

The technical support staff at Electrocomp has been approved by Siemens South Africa for both hardware and software support. Any technical queries, assistance and even field support can therefore be handled by this support team.

Java and GSM training

Electrocomp is in the process of setting up a fully equipped training facility which will offer Java and GSM training sessions. These training sessions will be available to new and existing customers that need to know more about GSM development as well as the popular Java development. Training will commence at the beginning of June and will be offered countrywide.
