Kontron is M2M partner of Deutsche Telekom
Kontron today announced its cooperation with Deutsche Telekom. The goal of this partnership is the promotion of Kontron’s M2M solutions. The M2M partnership with one of the world’s leading network operators and service providers extends Kontron’s marketing and distribution channels, and underlines its strategic investment to provide embedded computer-based solutions for the huge multiplicity of industrial grade M2M applications.Flee
For distributed systems requiring cellular network connection, Kontron offers the matching industrial grade nodes to connect the terminal devices to the cloud applications and the Internet-of-Things. A part of Deutsche Telekom’s developer propositions is the Kontron M2M Smart Services Developer Kit: It offers scalable processor performance and includes all the required drivers and protocols and highly flexible configuration options in terms of applications and operating systems. Beside this flexibility the platform convinces R&D engineers with its pre-qualified set-up for mobile network operators. The system has a PTCRB certification and is approved for use in cellular networks. This saves customer’s R&D time as well as costs because it streamlines the process of carrier approval and their own certifications before the application can be launched on a carrier network. The kit’s 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN and 802.15.4 WPAN support a rapid development of applications with local wireless connectivity. Cellular network connection to the cloud applications is offered with pre-installed 3G WWAN, which can be extended for redundant configurations via a second PCI Express 3G.4G module. Even face-to-face communication is possible with the optional extension of a smart video and audio module. With its modular approach of the well-proven production-ready COTS Small Form Factor Platform, the Kontron M2M developer kit enables OEMs and smart services developers as well as independent software suppliers to reduce development costs and risks, and ensures a rapid introduction to the market.
