M2M module maker Telit has taken the wraps off two new devices designed to function on 3G networks.

The UE866 is described as the world’s smallest 3G module by the company, while the UE910 comes with an optional embedded SIM for applications requiring rugged reliability.

Telit (London, UK) says the UE866 is particularly suited to telematics applications, incorporating “powerful and reliable firmware”.

It is also being aimed at the battery-powered wearable technology segment, with both products intended for use in smart metering, mobile POS terminals, mobile health technology and alarm panels.

The company is also promoting the new devices as useful options for North American customers preparing their applications to outlast the “upcoming 2G sunset”.

AT&T (Dallas, TX, USA) and Verizon Wireless (New York City, NY, USA), the country’s two biggest cellular operators, have announced plans to shut down their older 2G networks in the next few years, after which they will rely solely on their 3G and 4G infrastructure.

Both of the new modules will give adopters immediate access to Telit’s m2mAIR cloud application enablement platform, says Telit.

“The launch of these two new 3G modules is the ultimate expression of our One Stop, One Shop strategy to make the Internet of Things plug-and-play for adopters,” said Felix Marchal, chief product officer at Telit Wireless Solutions.

“With embedded processing power, embedded SIM, onboard m2mAIR cloud APIs and the choice of family form factors, they offer the ultimate flexibility for customers seeking to upgrade their applications to 3G as well as those building a new class of miniature connected devices,” he added.
