Availability: In Stock

The Cinterion EHS5 module represents a milestone in embeddeded Java machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, offering smart connectivity for industrial applications.

EHS5 delivers highly efficient 3G communication in an ultra-compact footprint. EHS5 is an ideal solution for M2M applications moving to 3G technology with a focus on long-lasting, futureproof and cost efficient M2M applications. Offering a backward and forward compatible footprint, its multi design capability offers seamless migration and unmatched flexibility to choose frequency bands and global roaming whenever needed.

The platform incorporates an improved Java concept using Multi MIDlet Java execution to simultaneously host and run multiple applications and protocols. An extended security concept with the latest TLS/SSL engine provides secure and reliable TCP/IP connectivity while an enriched internal flash file system enables royalty free firmware updates over-theair (FOTA) when required. Sophisticated sandbox modeling and layered architectures simplify device management (DM) and separate mobile network operator approvals from application code development, allowing simultaneous progress of both phases for a shorter time to market.

Powered by Intel’s latest HSPA baseband, the next generation of the award-winning Industrial platform features high speed data communication with 7.2 Mbps (max) in the downlink and 5.76 Mbps (max) in the uplink. The tiny EHS5 comes in Gemalto M2M’s unique LGA (Land Grid Array) package perfectly suited to the manufacturing needs of small, high-volume M2M devices with a focus on reliable and efficient processes. EHS5 supports voice and data communication and best in class low power consumption incorporated with common industrial interfaces such as USB and serial interfaces.

EHS5 is available in two variants: EHS5-US (850/1900 MHz) for North America, and EHS5-E (900/2100 MHz) for the rest of the world.
