Cinterion HC25

Cinterion HC25

Part no.: L30960-N1055-A200
Manufacturer: Thales Gemalto Cinterion

Availability: In Stock

The HC25 provides HSDPA 3.6 Mbit/s download speed, Tri-Band UMTS/ HSDPA, Quad-Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, an RIL/NDIS/USB driver for Microsoft® Windows Mobile™-based devices, and robust mounting and interfaces, including a serial and USB port. Beyond that, the HC25 offers on-board GPS functionality, making it a good choice for tracking applications, and meets the USA’s E911 standard.

HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) technology is a transmission standard based on the UMTS technology. This technology, in combination with full voice and data capability, a USB and serial interface, a RIL/NDIS/USB driver and connected via a rugged board-to-board connector, provides manufacturers with the opportunity to develop new devices and solutions within a very short time and at a low cost of ownership.

As a result, the HC25 enables applications to offer services like broadband internet and e-mail access, high-speed download of large files and streaming of videos or music. In addition, the HC25 comes with full type approval. It has also been approved by major network carriers around the world, including US operators.
