M2M Workout Solutions
The M2M Workout
unit was originally designed to facilitate the comparative real-time
performance testing of up to four GSM mobile networks and/or
associated AT compatible modem equipment. It is based around a
flexible scripting language that allows the easy creation of complex
testing programmes. Such programmes have been used commercially for
vehicle drive trials and modem compliance testing within a
laboratory environment. The M2M system is sufficiently flexible that
it may be re-configured as an intelligent communications gateway
e.g. for automated message handling and distribution or ensuring
resilient communication by adaptive use of multiple network links.
The product also forms the basis of the tagging and sensor
The product is available in a variety of forms. The ruggedised/trial
version of the M2M workout solution is shown in Figure 1.
The trials version of the equipment is mounted in a strong and
waterproof “Storm” case for protection during transit. The default
configuration includes four Cinterion wireless modems (each
equipped with mag-mount antennas), a mag-mount GPS unit, a
serial/USB hub, a +12V power distribution unit and a laptop that
runs the collector (client) version of the M2M software (with one
year support). A server licence is also included (with one year
support) for the upload of trials data. The case is intended to
run “open” on the back seat of a car with the mag-mount antennas
for the modems and GPS positioned on the roof. The modems are
powered from the Vehicle +12v supply and with the addition of an
inverter accessory the laptop is kept charged via the same supply.
A laboratory version is available that includes, the laptop with
pre-installed/tested collector software (plus one year support)
and the serial/USB hub. [M2M0006]
A collector licence-only version is available, including the
client software (without any hardware) and one-year support.
A server licence-only version is available, which provides
server space for the uploading/storage of trials data onto a
database (up to 100MB), and one-year support. [M2M0009]
The support periods may be extended.
