MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 18, 2016) - Elo, a global supplier of digital touchscreen solutions, is excited to announce the availability of cellular connectivity options on the Android-based I-Series line. Based on the popular I-Series for Android platform, the new 10-, 15- and 22-inch display sizes are available with an embedded cellular modem and SIM card in addition to the current Wi-Fi/Ethernet versions. The addition of cellular on the I-Series will allow dynamic advertising by merchandising teams, creative agencies, PoP display and fixture companies where access to other networks is difficult. Two versions with cellular connectivity are available out of the box -- Vodafone for Europe and AT&T for the US market. Customers can choose other carriers through a Bring Your Own Carrier option.
"Customers who are installing interactive experiences where no network exists, or who cannot get on a network, now have an option," said Neeraj Pendse, director of product management at Elo. "Many companies tout cellular capabilities on their devices, but Elo has gone all the way with carrier certifications and a built-in SIM card, which makes the device ready for activation through our IoT partner, KORE."
I-Series for Cellular is a true All-in-One Android solution that is perfect for in-store interaction, point of sale, point of information, endless aisle, self-service, wayfinding, corporate and hospitality environments. Capacitive multi-touch technology and a high performance Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor deliver smooth and highly responsive multi-user interaction. Flexible mounting options include shelf brackets, wall brackets, counter stands, flip stands and a floor stand allow mounting in either portrait, landscape or tabletop orientation. Elo's host of configuration and accessory options include Bluetooth/BLE, near field communication, mag strip reader, barcode reader, customer-facing displays and other General Purpose Analog I/O accessories.
To simplify connecting the I-Series for Cellular to a cellular network, Elo has teamed up with KORE, one of the largest providers of machine-to-machine connectivity in the world. Elo's units are ready to connect out of the box by simply contacting KORE and providing the SIM card number. Additionally, the I-Series device features a quad-band GSM and LTE capable modem for compatibility with many carriers around the globe. For details on bands and certifications, please contact Elo.
"Getting devices connected to a network as quickly as possible is vital to the launch and continued success of that solution," said Alex Brisbourne, CEO of KORE. "KORE is excited to partner with Elo to provide the seamless cellular connectivity needed to enable mobile data services for the Elo I-Series. Bringing immediate connectivity to Elo I-Series end-users right out of the box allows for quicker adoption, interaction and less downtime."
