Industrial - EHS6

Global 3G M2M Module with JavaTM Embedded

Internet of Things - EHS6The flagship Cinterion® EHS6 is the 5th generation of Gemalto's Java embedded M2M modules, which have simplified highly efficient, end-to-end industrial communication for more than a decade. Providing the ability to develop multiple designs from one solution, EHS6 is an ideal module for M2M applications migrating from 2G to 3G that require cost efficiency along with global connectivity. EHS6 offers five band HSPA to support high bandwidth connectivity, enabling speeds up to 7.2 Mbps in downlink and 5.7 Mbps in uplink and rounds out the existing portfolio comprised of the Industrial Platform.

The tiny EHS6 module offers the latest Java ME 3.2 platform optimized for resource-constrained M2M applications. It significantly reduces total cost of ownership (TCO) and time to market by sharing internal resources including memory, a large code base and proven software building blocks.

The improved Java concept can simultaneously run multiple applications and protocols. An extended security concept with the latest TLS/SSL engine provides secure and reliable TCP/IP connectivity while an enriched internal flash file system enables royalty free firmware updates over-the-air (FOTA). Sophisticated sandbox and layered architectures allowing simultaneous development of M2M devices and software applications for a shorter time to market.
