BlueTree Wireless Data Inc. has unveiled its 6400 series lineup of rugged cellular modems based on the 2G Edge wireless technology. Alongside its full range of 3G rugged modems, including GSM HSPA and CDMA Rev A cellular modems, BlueTree is introducing three new GPRS EDGE modems for fixed machine to machine (M2M) applications like telemetry and SCADA.

The BT-6401 industrial modem are tailored for solutions handling oil/gas, electric utilities and waste/water management industries. The BT-6401EB targets applications requiring integrated PoE. The integrated PoE capability enables easy installation where power outlets are impractical or not readily available. Lastly, the BT-6421 industrial switch features an integrated 5-Ethernet port layout and is designed for applications requiring multiple Ethernet port connectivity.

"We continue to be committed to the fixed data wireless application markets", said Michael Ramsay, president of BlueTree. "We have customers in the M2M space who require low-cost yet feature rich industrial grade cellular modems with intermediate speed levels. This is the kind of flexibility our customers expect from us and that is what we are delivering. With Edge we now have what we believe is the widest selection of rugged cellular modem solutions available and an equally impressive selection of technologies available in HSPA and CDMA Rev A products."

The 6400 series modems will support the Edge protocol with automatic fallback to GPRS> Standard features include metal enclosures, Class 1 Division 2 certification, USB, serial and Ethernet ports, multiple mounting options including DIN rail, IPSec VPN, built-in routing functionality and IP Pass-Thru.
