Telit Communications PLC (AIM: TCM) unit Telit Wireless Solutions said Isabella Products, a next-generation mobile device company, has selected Telit’s GE864-QUAD machine-to-machine (M2M) module to enable two-way communications on the Vizit, an interactive digital photo frame.
The device enables users to send and receive digital photos over a cellular network. The Vizit device will be on display at Telit’s booth at CTIA Wireless IT & Entertainment 2009 trade show before it launches this autumn.
Only two days ago, Telit Wireless Solutions said it is stepping up its cooperation with ASL Holdings Ltd (ASLH), a UK provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) products for the energy industry.
ASLH has since 2006 been integrating Telit Wireless’ GC864-C2 and GE864-QUAD modules into its telemetry application, the Delta Plus Mobile AMCM Wireless Modem (ASLH358). The Delta Plus Mobile AMCM Wireless Modem is designed for use in the utility industry and allows the automatic remote access to applications for data capture, known as Automated Meter Reading.
To date, ASL has already integrated around 100,000 of Telit’s modules. ASLH and Telit are now planning to step up their successful cooperation in the coming years, to include the use of the latest extension of the GE product range from Telit, the GE865 module. This GSM/GPRS module features a compact form and a strong performance.
Telit Communications in September reported it narrowed its losses in the first half, a period which it called “challenging in terms of revenues but positive for Telit in terms of improved operating results and number of units sold, which showed a substantial improvement”.
The machine-to-machine communications specialist reduced the pretax loss to €2.05 million in the six months ended June 30 2009 from a €3.19 million loss a year earlier, on revenues of €27.7 million, down from €30.1 million previously.
The outlook for the rest of 2009 looks positive for Telit, it said last month, adding that, despite the challenges in the M2M market the company expects to be back on track with renewed growth. It expects that the EMEA region will improve substantially during the second half based on the current backlog in hand.
