Introduction

Saddle-up your application with GSM/GPRS data connectivity right from the start! The super-thin WISMO Q2400 series offers the max in data flow with high-performance GPRS Class 10. An integrated TCP/IP Stack can be order optionally. With compatible modules available for GSM 850/1900 and CDMA 2000, the same application can be used all over the world by simply exchanging the WISMO Quik module.

Hardware

Optimize your application with a unique, easy to use and fully integrated GSM/GPRS/GPS platform. This new module from Wavecom is designed for automotive applications and combines dualband GSM/GPRS functionality with a 16-channel GPS receiver in a single compact module.

The GSM/GPRS and GPS functionality can be used either in stand-alone or combined mode. The module is available with two separate antenna connectors or with a combination GSM/GPS antenna connector. Optionally, this module is also available with a TCP/IP stack, which facilitates the integration of Internet functionality. Due to its compact size of 58 x 32 x 6 mm, the module is easy to integrate. Weighing less than 15g, it is currently the most lightweight telematics platform available.

Application examples:

The WISMO Quick Q2501 Module is especially suited for applications in telematics, alarm systems, security and fleet management.

Development support:

When integrating a WISMO Quik Module into your application, youll get full technical support, including reference designs, hardware, specifications, Application Notes, circuit examples etc., to help you ensure fast and easy integration and maximum functionality.

Software

ActiveXperts SMS Messaging Server is a Windows-based software package that enables you to send, receive and process SMS and e-mail messages. Supported communication protocols: GSM, HTTP, SMPP, SMTP, POP3. Incoming messages are processed by 'triggers', and can be fully customized.

It's a framework for any scenario where one/two-way SMS is required. Create a voting/polling system, send out mass SMS broadcasts, create a reservation system, etc.. Real-life case-studies are included as sample projects.

About Wavecom Products

Wavecom provide three distinct product families aimed at the M2M (machine-to-machine) and automotive markets.

For those requiring a stand-alone wireless communication solution, Wavecom's Fastrack modem is a natural choice. A fully functional GSM/GPRS modem with data, voice, fax and SMS capability, the Fastrack features an internal SIM tray and SIM interface, a 15-pin sub-D RS232 interface for serial communication, and a 4-pin Molex connector allowing it to be powered from a 5.5-32VDC supply or one of our mains adaptors.

All Wavecom products are controlled by an extended version of the Hayes AT command set. For added functionality, we offer Wavecom's OpenAT software development kit (SDK), which allows embedded programs to be written in C code.

WISMO Quik

The WISMO Quik is a small footprint, ultra-slim wireless module with full GSM/GPRS capability (Q2500 series also features GPS) including data, voice, fax and SMS. Automotive versions of WISMO Quik are available.
