Gemalto Integrates Qualcomm Technology into M2M Modules
Gemalto says that it will add a new module based on the Qualcomm QSC 6270-Turbo chipset to its Cinterion portfolio of cellular modules and devices.
The Cinterion modules utilize the application processor power to host customers’ application software directly onboard the module, eliminating the expense of additional processing and memory chips. Multiple applications can run in parallel and the application environment allows the Java developer community to reuse existing resources and to speed up the complete system integration.
The architecture also simplifies over-the-air (OTA) provisioning and remote updating, to distantly manage M2M applications that often remain in the field for more than 10 years.
“When we integrated Oracle Java onto the QSC6270-Turbo chipset, we wanted to enable the worldwide Java development community to imagine, develop and deploy cellular-based M2M applications,” said Nakul Duggal, Vice President of Product Management at Qualcomm Technologies.
