Product description

Gemalto M2M is proud to introduce the Cinterion BGS5: the next step in advanced 2G machine-to-machine (M2M) processing and communications. BGS5 provides advanced processing and an embedded Java virtual machine to offload the application, or even remove the microprocessor, significantly reducing the device complexity and Bill of Material (BOM) cost. With a small footprint compatible with the Cinterion Industrial platform, it offers the perfect complement to 3G solutions when the application processing power is required, but the high throughput is not.

At only 27.6 mm x 18.8 mm x 2.7 mm, BGS5 is the smallest module to offer advanced application processing power. It is a full Quad-Band GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) module with GPRS class 12 support. Designed to deal with harsh environments, BGS5 supports M2M-grade extended temperature ranges.

The application processor makes BGS5 the perfect fit for applications like track and trace or Automatic Meter Reading (AMR), remote maintenance and control, and aftermarket telematics. In such applications, the module itself can be programmed to collect specific information, process it via embedded business logic, and send the results at a scheduled time. Device makers can program and add applets to fit their needs, or use existing JSRs which are publically available. As the Java platform is open, this code can then be ported to other Java enabled devices later without requiring additional modifications.

As part of our Edge-to-Enterprise concept, the embedded Java allows seamless integration between your application and the backend server – optimizing information collection and processing while ensuring you a future-proof infrastructure. In addition any infrastructure developed on this platform can easily be migrated to any other Java enabled Cinterion module. BGS5 is a key product for the Industrial platform which embeds intelligence directly in the module, saving you cost and design complexity!
