Product description

Part of the Cinterion® Industrial family, the BGS8 wireless module offers full voice capabilities, high speed GPRS data transmission and minimal power consumption. It is an exceptional choice for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications that require focused 2G connectivity with embedded high performance and global satellite (GNSS) service. The unique cost savings and performance inherent in BGS8 make it an ideal solution for Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications including onboard vehicle telematics and fleet management as well as point of sale (POS) and alarm devices.

BGS8 targets high volume, cost sensitive applications that utilize low bandwidth GSM/GPRS connectivity. Its rugged and ultra-compact Land Grid Array (LGA) footprint guarantees long product availability along with optimized Total Cost of Ownership. Offering compatibility with Gemalto M2M’s most compact and cost optimized 3G solutions, the BGS8 shares the same footprint and enables unparalleled migration opportunities.

Based on the powerful Intel® 2G chipset, the module’s unique Cinterion LGA technology enables optimized heat dissipation that prevents warping. This gives demanding industrial customers the freedom to select the most beneficial soldering paste for each individual application.

Equipped with high performance GPS/GLONASS, the BGS8 module is prepared to meet the comprehensive requirements of track and trace applications in the mobility aftermarket. It also features voice prompts, generic flash access, reliable jamming detection as well as an extensive set of secure

Internet services including:





Like all Cinterion modules, the BGS8 includes full type approval (FTA) for global roaming and certification for use with the largest carriers worldwide.
