Janus Announces the Launch of its New Terminus GSM/GPRS Wireless Terminal

Aurora, IL - June, 2007 - Janus Remote Communications, a designer, manufacturer and distributor of standard and custom M2M products, announces the release of its new Terminus integrated wireless terminal. The Terminus is an intelligent GSM/GPRS Control Terminal that encapsulates everything required for wireless M2M capability in one compact, cost-effective solution. M2M products and applications enable machines, devices, or vehicles to communicate via mobile wireless networks. Two different versions of the Terminal will be released: a standard Terminus and a GPS enabled Terminus.

In conjunction with Telit GSM/GPRS modules, the Terminus GSM864Q can host and control your wireless applications, minimizing the need for extra components. Alternatively, it can be used as a stand alone and powerful GPRS modem with its intrinsic TCP/IP stack.

"The Terminus breaks through the barriers to M2M communications by minimizing investment and reducing total system costs," states Ken Hartman, Chief Technologist for Janus. "Not only is it intelligent, but the GSM864Q is self-contained with its own SIM card reader and standard connector interfaces, reducing the need for further hardware expense."

Adaptable and easy to use, the Terminus is ideal for use in M2M Telemetry and Telematic applications including fleet and asset management, vending, security and alarm monitoring, maintenance and other telemetry applications.

The ease of use of the Terminus allows even commercial customers to provide M2M solutions in areas of safety, security and/or personal leisure (boating, caravans, hiking, camping, and even around the home).
