With the advent and growth in GSM and GPRS technology, Wavecom products from Trinity Telecomms are benchmarking a full range of solutions as industry leaders. Wavecom's WISMO range of modems offers technology that breaks the mould in applications and opens new development opportunities. The wireless GSM and GPRS modems are said to be flexible, easy-to-use and highly cost-effective.

With the advent and growth in GSM and GPRS technology, Wavecom products from Trinity Telecomms are benchmarking a full range of solutions as industry leaders. Wavecom's WISMO range of modems offers technology that breaks the mould in applications and opens new development opportunities. The wireless GSM and GPRS modems are said to be flexible, easy-to-use and highly cost-effective.

Since Wavecom only manufactures GSM/GPRS modems and modules it is strictly product and application-focused. The company sports the world's smallest Quad band GSM/GPRS modular solution with the capability to embed applications on the module itself. This eliminates components, additional processing requirements, board space and optimises size requirements to the minimum for applications where space is a problem. By the end of October 2002, the 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz and 1900 MHz modules will be available in South Africa.

The latest industry buzzword is Bluetooth technology that allows wireless transmission of data between electronic equipment such as video cameras and cellphones for sending, for example, video footage via the Internet. In future, Bluetooth stacks will be provided on the modules itself for easy interfacing with chipsets in any application. Another future innovation is enhanced observed time difference (EOTD) that will soon give accurate positioning capabilities to the WISMO modules for the customer's tracking applications using only the GSM networks.

Before the end of the year, Wavecom says it will also offer the WISMO 2D format and a CDMA version module for customers with applications intended for countries that are not only covered by GSM networks. These countries include the US, China and Australia.

The Integra modem offers internal as well as external SIM card reader capabilities with a 10-button keypad interface. The modem can also be ordered with one of the following features: six general-purpose inputs/outputs, three general-purpose outputs, or one general-purpose input.

The Fastrack modem is a rugged solution for standalone type applications and is used for immediate access to applications from vending machines in remote places to data loggers situated on water lines. The modem is therefore the solution for electricity meters or alarm systems where fixed line access is a problem. The Fastrack modems are popular for mobile applications. These applications range from harsh vehicle tracking environments to communications in lifts. It is also suitable for SMS applications for moving billboards and SMS competitions on plasma screens at airports or rock concerts.
