Cinterion Launches Ultra Compact, High-Speed M2M Communication Module

By Anil Sharma October 03, 2012

Cinterion, Gemalto’s machine-to-machine (M2M) business segment and the global player in M2M communication technology, has introduced EHS5 - an ultra compact, high-speed M2M communication module providing secure wireless connectivity for a wide variety of industrial applications.

Officials with Cinterion said that the new solution features a complete client Java runtime optimized for microcontrollers and other resource-constrained devices, providing Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) with a cost effective, flexible platform for bringing advanced M2M technology to market faster.

Company officials claimed that the Gemalto Cinterion EHS5 module represents a milestone in miniaturized, scalable M2M technology.

According to company officials, this next-generation solution enables network migration within a single design while ensuring long-lasting, future-proof applications. The solution’s powerful Java-based application environment allows the vast Java developer community to tap into its existing resources to simplify and to speed up M2M solution design and integration.

Moreover, it also enables lean system architecture by running software directly on the Cinterion module eliminating the expense of additional co-processors and memory chips and making applications smaller and less complex.

"Java technology has always been a core component of Oracle’s relationship with Cinterion and we are pleased that they have selected the Oracle implementation of Java ME to help realize their Java vision and strategy for Gemalto’s M2M segment," said Nandini Ramani, vice president, software development, Java Client and mobile platforms, Oracle, in a statement.

Ramani said that Java ME Embedded 3.2 delivers a new Java implementation optimized specifically for microcontrollers and small embedded devices like the Cinterion EHS5 module, helping to not only meet current customers‘ needs for reduced complexity and faster time to market, but also providing a platform for development and growth in the rapidly expanding M2M market segment of embedded systems.

“There are more than 850 million computers and billions of devices and machines currently running Java technologies, many of which being secure objects from Gemalto” said Norbert Muhrer, senior vice president, Gemalto Cinterion M2M segment.

Muhrer said that the Cinterion Java modules are a dynamic link at the center of industry-specific M2M applications. They connect Java-based machines, devices and sensors at the edge of an enterprise to the backend Enterprise Resource Planning systems, sending data where it is needed most for successful and dependable business operations. Edge-to-Enterprise, or E2E, connectivity is clearly the future of M2M.
