The current GE864-Quad represents the next generation in the GE864 family. It brings in one integrated and low power consumption platform all the features of the previous GE864-QUAD and GE864-PY modules. The low profile and small size of the BGA package for this version of the GE864-QUAD enable the design of very compact applications.

The latest technical developments are incorporated within this version of the GE864-Quad: 3GPP Release 4GSM/GPRS protocal stack, Downlink Advance Receiver Performance (DARP) feature for Single Antenna Interference Cancellation (SAIC), Enhanced Measurement Report, GERAN Feature package 1 which assists in supporting the Extended Uplink TBF and Network Assisted Cell Change (NACC), the ability to control via Remote AT Commands and Event Monitor Feature.

The new GE864-QUAD has one of the smallest GSM/GPRS Ball-Grid-Array (BGA) modules in the market. The low profile and small size of the unique BGA package of the GE864-QUAD enables the design of very compact applications. Since connectors are eliminated, the solution cost is significantly reduced compared to conventional mounting.

With its ultra-compact design and extended temperature range, the Telit GE864 product line is the perfect platform for high-volume m2m applications and mobile data devices. Additional features such as integrated TCP/IP protocol stack and serial multiplexer extend functionality of the application at no additional cost.

The GE864-QUAD makes it possible to run the customer's application inside the module, thus making it the smallest, complete platform for M2M solutions and M2M devices.

All Telit modules, support Over-the-Air firmware update by means Premium FOTA Management. By embedding Red Bend Software vRapid Mobile® agent, a proven and battle-tested technology powering hundreds of millions of cellular handsets world-wide Telit is able to update its products by transmitting only a delta file, which represents the difference between one firmware version and another.This module is ideal for use with the M2M Sim Services currently offered.
