A Comprehensive Review of the Multi-Tech QuickCarrier USB-D Cellular Modem

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

The Multi-Tech QuickCarrier USB-D Cellular Modem was recently awarded M2M Evolution’s 2014 Product of the Year Award. In recognition of this honor, we present a review of the QuickCarrier USB-D.

M2M (machine-to-machine) technologies are increasingly being implemented in numerous industries to track assets, automate intelligent buildings, and monitor utilities and smart meters, among other uses. Cellular modules connecting directly to the Internet, VPN, or other IT service infrastructures are beginning to replace Wi-Fi connectivity more and more frequently. Network architecture is experiencing a major migration.

Multi-Tech's cellular modems use 2G and 3G, CDMA and GSM technologies to support wireless data communication over cellular networks worldwide. The QuickCarrier™ USB-D Cellular Modem is part of Multi-Tech’s comprehensive line of M2M communications modems.


Why is the Multi-Tech QuickCarrier USB-D a Great Option?

Reliable and cost-effective connectivity is a key consideration when designing M2M applications. We’re often asked how best to implement this functionality into M2M designs. While there are a number of options available, Multi-Tech offers one of the simplest connectivity options with the QuickCarrier™ USB-D Cellular Modem.
