On Tuesday, Franklin Wireless Corp. announced the market launch and commercial availability of the Company’s new S600 Series of stand-alone modems. Franklin Wireless Corp. is the market leader in dual-mode WiMAX and CDMA modems for 3G and 4G wireless broadband data communications.

The S600 Series represents a creative, reliable, and cost-effective solution that enables original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to integrate cellular connectivity into their products easily. The expectation is that the main market opportunity for the S600 Series will be the rapidly growing machine-to-machine (M2M) space. It supports a broad array of products and applications. These include digital signage, vending machines, utility meters, surveillance cameras, point-of-sale kiosks, as well as several other products that require wireless remote monitoring. Recently, several potential new customers for the S600 have ordered product samples. They are currently using them for evaluation and testing purposes.

The S600 Series includes the S600. This is a dual-mode WiMAX/CDMA stand-alone modem. The S600 Series also includes the S600C and S600W. These are single-mode versions that operate over CDMA and WiMAX networks respectively. These products are powered by Franklin’s M600 Series of embedded modules that, in addition to M2M devices, are designed to be embedded and integrated into laptops, netbooks, and tablet PCs. The S600 Series of stand-alone modems supports Windows® 7, Windows Vista®, Windows XP, Linux, and Mac OS® X. Furthermore, the modems are housed in heavy-duty aluminum cases designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions.

Their other products include Wi-Fi “hotspot” routers (that operate over WiMAX or CDMA networks) and wireless modules that normally sell to OEMs. Franklin Wireless Corp.’s primary customers are wireless carriers who look for innovative, reliable, and cost effective technology solutions for their subscribers.
