Telecom Lead America: Telit Wireless Solutions, a
provider of M2M communications, announced that its HE910, a pentaband HSPA+ M2M
module, enables connectivity in the AirLoom personal tracker from WH
The AirLoom extends M2M adoption to the masses as a
low-cost solution for monitoring people, pets, personal belongings and
commercial assets with a pay-as-you-go data service model.
The company claims that the
ultra-portable AirLoom can be applied anywhere by anyone. Telit and
AirLoom make it easy to track anyone from Alzheimer’s patients to children
walking to school, and anything from a car to inventory in transit.
“We faced the design challenge of selecting hardware
that offered high functionality and minimal battery drain. By embedding the
Telit HE910 module in our AirLoom, we are able to deliver a power-efficient,
reliable and accurate tracking device that consumers and commercial adopters
can leverage for a wide range of remote monitoring solutions,” said Waldek
Hupa, president of WH Electronics.
The AirLoom benefits from the HE910’s compact form
factor and can be attached to any person or asset. The device’s USB plug
enables charging and allows owners to customize device settings, alerts and
parameters, such as the geofencing radius.
Through an online portal, users are able to set
transmission intervals and monitor wireless credit usage, instead of contracted
ongoing service, to minimize data usage and control cost.
“Often, the most expensive element of an M2M
application over time is the data transmission service, which can present an
obstacle for widespread adoption of the technology,” said Mike Ueland,
senior vice president and general manager of Telit Wireless Solutions North
