Intel XMM7262 Certified on China Mobile

Intel continues to take steps to become a big player in the mobile broadband market by pushing XMM7262 LTE modem.

In May, an Intel blog post stated an ambitious goal for the company’s second half of the year: to “be #2 in LTE modem volume by the end of 2014.” While this goal may seem far fetched for most, Intel is one of the few companies with the means of following through, even without a vast history in mobile broadband technology. Intel initially entered the mobile broadband industry back in 2010, when it acquired Infineon.

Today, Aicha Evans, General Manager of the Platform Engineering Group at Intel, followed up on the topic. Her blog post announced that Intel’s latest LTE modem has been officially certified by China’s largest operator, China Mobile. If Intel’s goal can be measured by pure numbers, then they are likely off to a great start. In 2013, China Mobile had more subscribers than any other mobile telecommunications company in the world, about 760 million .

It is also clear that Intel is aiming for a modem that will appeal to as many people and manufacturers as possible. Below is the latest information on the XMM7262 features:

  • Up to 23 LTE bands on a single SKU for worldwide coverage and roaming
  • Multimode design provides seamless connectivity to 2G, 3G and 4G LTE networks
  • Powerful and flexible RF architecture to enable roaming solutions for a world phone market impact

The number of LTE bands and networks that will be accessible through the XMM7262 target the widespread user base that will be necessary to come close to Qualcomm in terms of LTE modem volume. Intel may hope to woo Apple away from Qualcomm , in an attempt to establish a relationship similar to that which lands Intel processors in all Mac computers. Ironically, Apple was using Infineon hardware with early models of the iPhone, until Infineon was acquired by Intel.

This move as a whole makes sense in combination with some of Intel’s other latest projects, such as the tiny XMM6255 3G modem . If you would like to sample Intel’s XMM726x modems, the XMM7260 can be found in the recently released Samsung Galaxy Alpha.

IP Switch 1 Outlet Compatible with iOS 8

Our team at 3Gstore tries to keep up with all updates relevant to our industry, whether they are directly related to our products or not. In the case of the new iOS 8 update released by Apple today, and one of our popular items, the 1 Outlet Remote Power IP Switch, we needed to confirm the ezOutlet application would still operate. After all, not only do we rely on it ourselves, but several of our customers as well.

The Remote Power IP Switch allows users a way to remotely power cycle devices such as routers, cameras, and web servers. The ezOutlet app, provides the user a way to not only configure the IP Switch, but also manually power the outlet on or off, reset the outlet, and upgrade firmware for the IP Switch. Without this, users who are relying on an IP Switch that is connected with a privately assigned WAN IP address on their network, are limited to local access only. Of course, this defeats the main purpose of the device!

Go ahead and update if you find necessary, ezOutlet will still work! And if you don’t already have one, check out the Remote Power IP Switch today and see if it may help you! 

Not sure which IP Switch model may be right for you? Reference our comparison between the 2-Outlet and 1-Outlet models!

CloudGate LTE Switching Carriers

Most embedded modems are “carrier specific,” meaning that if you have multiple carriers you either need two modems in your router, or two separate devices entirely. For some time we have carried the Option Cloudgate 3G, which has provided the single modem functionality, but lacking the speed of world’s 4G networks. 4G LTE is important for many consumers who need access to the fastest network available to keep business operations efficient. The Option Cloudgate 3G/4G will provide the best of both options, covering 4G LTE bands 4/13/17 which include Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Telus and Rogers. It also supports Global GSM providers using HSPA+ 800/850/900/1900/2100Mhz and even AWS 1700/2100Mhz.

The “expansion slots” and lengthy accessories page will allow you to customize your Cloudgate to perfectly fit your needs. The device includes two expansion ports so customers can select expansions based on their personal applications. These options include:

For more information on the Option Cloudgate M2M Cellular Gateway 3G/4G, have a look at our past review of the Option Cloudate 3G (3G only). This review gives more direction on the technical setup and configurable settings of the Option Cloudgate products.

To see just how easy it is to switch carriers on the CloudGate, we have created a quick video below.


 

CloudGate, Option’s M2M Gateway, provides competitively priced LAN to WWAN routing and GPS functionality in a single basic unit certified on all major US 4G LTE cellular operators (LTE Bands 4/13/17) and can also be activated on virtually ANY 3G/HSPA+ GSM network worldwide! CloudGate is simple to configure locally or remotely from your PC, tablet or smartphone. - See more at: http://3gstore.com/product/5158_cloudgate_m2m_global_embedded_3g_4g_router.html#sthash.JvsWZPqV.dpuf

CloudCam Compatible with iOS 8

cloudcams.png

With Apple’s release of iOS 8 today, you may be wondering if it would be a good idea to update. One of the biggest questions on your mind may be “Will it still support my current applications?” Our CloudCam devices, for example, rely on a mobile application for remote viewing and configuration of the cameras. Without this app, users who rely on Mobile Broadband Internet through companies such as Verizon Wireless would be forced to pay $500 for a public IP address (See here for why private IPs won’t work for remote applications).mcamview-logo.png

The CloudCams, unlike most IP cameras, utilize a cloud based app called mCamView. So, rather than having to open ports on your network to allow remote access to your cameras (or anything else on your network), you have an app. This gives users a way around the fees involved with purchasing a static IP address. Instead, they simply take the camera’s ID and password, enter it into the app, and the camera feed loads immediately (depending on the speed of your connection). This is mainly why the CloudCams are so easy to setup

Don’t be afraid to proceed with the iOS update, if you like. We’ve tested mCamView with our own cameras and can assure you it works! Just keep this in mind for any other applications you rely on! You may consider asking a friend to test it first OR check with Apple to see if rolling back to iOS 7 may be an option BEFORE doing the update.

CTIA 2014

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW) today announced that the Sierra Wireless AirPrime EM7345 embedded wireless module is now certified to operate on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network. This is part of the third generation of 4G LTE modules from Sierra Wireless, which first launched embedded modules on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network three years ago.
