Wavecom Wireless Microprocessor® at the heart of latest size- and cost-optimized Telular alarm communicator

Wavecom Wireless Microprocessor® WMP 100 to provide cellular link and application engine for primary, back-up or dual alarm communications.
Research Triangle Park, NC (USA)-September 16, 2008

Wavecom today announced that the Wavecom Wireless Microprocessor® WMP 100 is the cellular engine at the heart of the newest member of the Telguard® Digital family of alarm communicators: TG-11. Relying on the WMP 100 for cellular connectivity, the UL Listed TG-11 transmits alarm signals over the air if the telephone line has been disrupted, compromised, or when no wireline service is available. Telguard Digital is used in over 400,000 intrusion detection systems in homes and businesses across the U.S.

The compact size and improved integration of components enabled by embedding the Telular application directly on the WMP using Wavecom Open AT® Software Suite, gave Telular the opportunity to provide a unique response to their customers' needs. As a result, the TG-11 is one of the smallest, most lightweight – and most economical – alarm communicators on the market.

"We chose the Wireless Microprocessor based on the capabilities of the Open AT® multi-tasking, real-time operating system," said Chris Bear, Telular Chief Technology Officer. "By embedding our application on the WMP100 we were able to reduce component redundancy and realize both cost savings and a more compact design. After years of collaboration with Wavecom on a variety of projects, we know we can count on them for both product reliability and outstanding support."

"We are thrilled to see the innovation Telular has built on our Wireless Microprocessor® product," said Stefan Lindvall, President of Wavecom Inc. "It has been a pleasure to work with their talented team of engineers and developers to truly realize the promise of Open AT® in a product that will enable more reliable, cost-effective communications for both residential and commercial alarm systems the world over."

To see the TG11 in person, visit Telular at both #2521 at ASIS International 2008 in Atlanta this week.
