Reliability, Quality and Customer Orientation
Telit Wireless Solutions is famous for its four core values that play a key role in ensuring the customer’s success: business scalability, ease of integration, investment protection, and world class quality.
These key competencies are represented by a wide range of advantages and services that Telit offers to its customers. One example embodying these principles is the unique family concept which provides customers with maximum compatibility with all cellular wireless technologies.
Telit’s Unique Product Family Concept
Telit is, to date, the only M2M supplier to offer its customers a form factor and family concept. The product families are tailored to different levels of integration and volumes according to application size and production scale. All modules of one family have the same size and shape, the same connectors and the same software interface so that that they can be integrated and exchanged easily into existing customer designs with only minimal adaptation. As a result, customers benefit from modules that can be used for years in their applications. They avoid additional development outlay and thus protect their previous development investments.
Cellular and Short-Range Solutions from a Single Source
In 2008, Telit made a strategic move from a “cellular M2M” solutions provider to a “wireless M2M” solutions provider, including both Satellite and Short Range RF technologies in its product offering. Being the only M2M supplier worldwide to offer all relevant wireless technologies in its product portfolio, Telit provides its customers with tailored, single source solutions. The company develops, manufactures and markets a wide range of enterprise communication modules:
- GSM/GPRS modules
- EDGE modules
- UMTS/WEDGE/HSPA modules
- CDMA modules
- AGPS modules
- Short Range RF (proprietary mesh/point-to-point for unlicensed frequency bands)
- Short Range to GSM/GPRS
- Wireless MBus
Telit’s R&D Competence
Another plus for Telit’s customers is the access to a gamut of lab resources for testing their end products, preparing them for official certification procedures. As a former manufacturer of mobile telephones, Telit has extensive knowledge and equipment for preparation of virtually all common international testing procedures such as R&TTE/FCC, CE/UL and GCF/PTCRB. This increases the probability of a successful certification process, done right the first time. Telit’s R&D centers are located in:
