The new Gemalto Cinterion PLS8 LTE cellular machine-to-machine (M2M) module offers a smart solution for wireless connectivity today and in the future. With the newest 3GPP Rel. 9 LTE technology, PLS8 is optimised for high bandwidth, enabling speeds up to 100 Mbps for downlink and 50 Mbps for uplink.
PLS8 comes in two variants; PLS8-E and PLS8-US, both of which are footprint compatible with Gemalto M2M's 3G/GSM and CDMA Cinterion modules the PHS8 and PXS8/PVS8.
Two antenna pads enable diversity support allowing PLS8 to provide improved data speeds. An optimised GPS antenna path eliminates blanking on GPS and provides more consistent performance.
