receives data over the Internet. The modem offers short message service (SMS) features such as text and PDU, Point-to-point
(MT/MO) and cell broadcast.
The MultiModem iCell modem delivers some of the fastest cellular wireless data speeds using the various Internet protocols.
This is ideal for highly data-intensive applications such as remote video surveillance and other multimedia applications where
you are sending digital images, web pages and photographs.
The MultiModem iCell modem is designed around a wide variety of interface options including serial RS-232, USB, and General
Purpose Input/Output (GPIO). The serial RS-232 and USB connections provide seamless connectivity for configuration of your
application. The GPIO interface provides five user-configurable GPIO’s as CMOS input or output ports to be connected to a
customer’s peripheral device. A customer application in which the GPIO interface could be used is one with a monitoring device
connected to the GPIO interface in which the monitoring device triggers an event in the IP stack to establish a TCP or UDP
socket connection or send an email stating that the monitoring device was triggered by high water.
