Kontron AG has announced that its KM2M800 family of M2M Smart Services Developer Kits has received PTCRB certification.

PTCRB certification ensures that the GSM/W-CDMA devices within the Kontron KM2M800 family are compliant with the defined technical specifications in the North American Permanent Reference Document (NAPRD) to meet network operator requirements for safe operation. The PTCRB is a global organization of mobile network operators with the purpose of implementing independent, technical and standards-based evaluation processes for GSM/UMTS network-type certification. 7Layers is the authorized third party laboratory that conducted the testing on the Kontron KM2M800 series system within the developer kit.

"Kontron, in collaboration with Intel Corp., took the proactive step of PTCRB certification to help our M2M application developer customers streamline the process of carrier approval and their own PTCRB certification before the application can be launched on a carrier network," said Kevin Rhoads, vice President, embedded products business unit, Kontron.

The Kontron M2M Smart Services Developer Kit features a COM Express mini Kontron Computer-on-Module COMe-mTT10 powered by an Intel Atom processor and includes a M2M System Carrier Board and an AV board to support headed configuration use. Enabling the quick development of wireless connectivity solutions, the kit supports 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN and 802.15.4 WPAN. Customers have the option to add 3G WWAN that can either be pre-installed or easily enabled by dropping in a pre-certified PCI Express 3G/4G module for additional broadband connectivity flexibility. Kontron's M2M Developer's kit gives OEMs, smart services developers, and independent software vendors (ISVs) multiple benefits from a COMs-based modular approach that include reduced development costs, risk and time-to-market in a proven, production-ready COTS small factor platform. The kit packaging is also easily customized with the network operator's, OEM's or ISV's brand.
