Cinterion (Gemalto) Terminals - Migration support


The Cinterion Range of GSM / GPRS (& SMS) Terminals / Modems has been updated with a new family of devices offering additional interfaces, lower costs and broader support for the new Java platform recently introduced.

The following models are no longer manufactured by Gemalto: MC52i-T, MC55i-T, TC65-T

For applications where one of the above devices is currently specified the table below indicates the suggested new device to consider. Whilst migration to the new device should in most applications be seamless, full compatibility verification is always recommended.
