BGS2-W Quad Band Global 2G

​​Perfect All Around 2G M2M

The successful Cinterion BGS2-W wireless M2M Module has long been a best-seller offering 2G connectivity, full voice capabilities, high speed GPRS data and best-in-class low power consumption. The ultra-compact LGA design offers a minimal footprint perfectly suited to the needs of small, high-volume devices with a focus on reliable and efficient processes.  It is an exceptional all-around choice for any low bandwidth M2M application that needs to migrate to evolving networks. 

The module delivers Quad-Band GSM/GPRS with advanced SSL encryption for IP-based services, jamming detection, an analog and digital audio interface and generic flash access to the internal memory of the module. The module's intelligent design concept allows seamless migration to 3G capabilities, supporting HSPA data transmission within a contiguous design framework to assure long-lasting, future-proof M2M applications.  BGS2 comes in two variants as Quad-Band with GPRS class 10 (BGS2-W) and Dual-Band with GPRS class 10 (BGS2-E). As with all Cinterion modules, BGS2 includes full type approval (FTA) and certification for use with the largest global carriers.​
