Multi-Tech Embedded Cellular Solutions Fill Design Needs


Standards-based EDGE, GPRS and CDMA Part of Universal Sockets

MINNEAPOLIS, August 29, 2006 — If your design requires cellular wireless communications, Multi-Tech® Systems, Inc., a leading data communications and telecommunications technology company, based in suburban Minneapolis, has embedded EDGE, GPRS and CDMA socket-based products that can meet those needs. If those needs change, Multi-Tech Systems can fill many of them with the same basic design by simply adding a different technology module.

Multi-Tech’s universal socket family of embedded solutions is designed around a flexible comm-port architecture to provide analog dial-up, ISDN dial-up, cellular wireless, Bluetooth® wireless or Ethernet socket connectivity with interchangeable modules. This means one system design can be populated with various connectivity options.

“Cellular wireless technologies are being used by OEMs, businesses and enterprises for an expanding list of tasks such as remote diagnostics, data acquisition, and polling as in the case of a vending machine reporting inventory,” states Chip Harleman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. “The cellular infrastructure is often the best for these type of tasks first because the technology will typically work anywhere there is a cell signal and second because charges are based on usage. Multi-Tech embedded cellular products end up in designs as diverse as power and energy applications, health care monitoring and point of sale equipment. And, if you use a Multi-Tech Universal Socket design, your next communications challenge could be solved by simply adding a different technology module.”
