TDK System to show GPRS PCMCIA card during 3GSM Congress
Posted on 19-Feb-2003 11:28 | Filed under: News



TDK Systems will be demonstrating the integration of wireless data services in a PCMCIA Card format at 3GSM 2003. The Mobile Data Card has been designed to meet the needs of mobile workers that require a diversity of data connections in different locations and at different times of the day. An integral part of the offering is a comprehensive connectivity suite of software that manages data connections and provides automatic set-up of GPRS accounts.

"The telecoms and PC industries have largely ignored the real working methods of the mobile worker," said Nick Hunn, managing director at TDK Systems. "They each expect the user to carry a diverse range of connectivity products. We have approached the problem from the point of view of the user, by developing an integrated suite of hardware and software that gives out of the box ease of use and a centralized control of connectivity."

The design offers opportunities for network providers and hotspot operators to streamline their data offerings and consolidate their customer ownership. The support for E-OTD location services is also expected to appeal to integrators in the telematics market and US operators who want to extend their E-911 offerings to non-voice customers.

Based upon a Siemens MC45 tri-band GPRS module, the Mobile Data Card brings together GSM and GPRS data connectivity, as well as providing the authentication means for SIM managed Wi-Fi access and E-OTD location support.
