Motorola Launches the W24 Wireless Module Adding a Wi-Fi Technology to the M2M Module Family

The latest addition to the Motorola M2M wireless module family provides easy and secure Wi-Fi connectivity for reliable Internet and data communication

LAS VEGAS, April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- 2008 CTIA WIRELESS -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT), today announced the launch of W24 M2M wireless module, the new innovative Wi-Fi addition to the Motorola Machine-to-machine (M2M) Wireless Module family. The W24 module is designed to meet customer demand for cost-effective and secure Wi-Fi access for wireless broadband communications, offering top quality and features typical of Motorola solutions.

The W24 module conforms to Motorola's vision of supporting all technologies with a common form factor, thereby enabling smooth and fast integration into M2M applications, including fleet management, security, automation and remote control, and vending machines.

The W24 provides M2M applications with high speed throughput and secure access to IP networks via wireless LANs or via cellular networks when connected to the G24 GSM family of modules. The module also supports seamless Wi-Fi - cellular data routing by linking a local subnet to the Internet via a single cellular connection, thus enabling linkage between local area network (WLAN) and wide area network (WAN).

The module's powerful standalone capabilities, such as built-in operating system and CPU, communication stack and security protocols eliminate the need for additional development and make it easy to integrate with existing manufacturer designs. For example, the W24 module offloads the entire task of Internet communications from the host application, enabling manufacturers with limited Internet programming resources to quickly and easily Internet-enable their devices by inserting just a few commands in their application.

"The W24 module was developed in response to M2M platform developers needs to reduce costs by concentrating communications between multiple devices via Wi-Fi access points. In addition, the W24 connectivity with G24 modules means that customers can now leverage a single design for applications requiring both real-time (cellular) and broadband (Wi-Fi) communication", says Aharon Mirsky, vice president of Motorola Israel and Director of Wireless Modules business Unit. "Once again, leading manufacturers can rely on Motorola, as the acknowledged innovator in the wireless communications industry, and with its commitment to top quality products. Motorola offers a superior solution, which allows its clients to take advantage of Wi-Fi technology, for improving their business operations, while reducing costs."

The W24 module supports the IEEE 802.11b/g wireless specifications. Its feature set include the TCP/UDP, HTTP, FTP, SFTP, DHCP, PPP, SMTP, POP3, Telnet and DNS internet protocols. Seamless Wi-Fi - Cellular data routing is available due to the W24 Network Address Translation (NAT) capabilities and to the DHCP server that supports up to 255 clients.
