Avnet Embedded, an Avnet, Inc. (NYSE:AVT) company, is announcing the availability of a new generation of Cinterion GSM/GPRS terminals offering greatly enhanced functionality whilst retaining full backward compatibility with earlier models.

According to Avnet Embedded, the Cinterion Quad-Band MC55iT and the Dual Band MC52iT take the Cinterion MC55i platform to a new level. With an extended temperature range, the new terminals can be used in a wide range of M2M business fields such as metering, remote maintenance, traffic systems, transportation and logistics, and security. Mechanical and electrical compatibility with the existing TC35iT and MC35iT together with a compact migration guideline allow an easy and seamless migration into the next generation of M2M terminals.

MC55i Terminal packs a Quad-Band (850 / 900 / 1800/ 1900 MHz) GSM/GPRS baseband with TCP/IP connectivity based on GPRS Class 10 data transmission into a compact plug-and-play housing. It offers a range of common interfaces as well as an integrated SIM cardholder which make the new generation an all-in-one solution enabling voice, data, SMS and fax communication. The Dual-Band (900 / 1800 MHz) variant (MC52iT) offers similar functionality with GPRS Class 8 support for standard M2M applications.

Like all Cinterion products, MC52iT / MC55iT come with full type approval (FTA) and are certified according to automotive e-mark as well as by the largest carriers worldwide.
