surecall, vending machine network, M2M device FREMONT, CA -- SureCall's machine-to-machine booster, designed for use in industries that use cellular modems to transmit data, has received FCC certification. The manufacturer said that SureCall M2M is the first machine-to-machine booster to receive the Federal Communication Commission's approval under new FCC regulatory and technical standards.

"The use of machine-to-machine, or M2M, boosters is rapidly expanding into new industries," said SureCall's founder and chief executive Hongtao Zhan. "Being the first to receive approval for an M2M booster is certainly a great advantage for our company, but more importantly, it's beneficial for all M2M customers whose machines rely on boosters to consistently communicate data."

According to Zhan, M2M boosters are being used increasingly in healthcare, finance, oil and gas, renewable energy, defense and military, gaming and casinos, and digital signage. There could also be applications for vending.

SureCall's booster supports 2G and 3G frequencies for all major carriers and delivers a maximum gain of 15dB.

Its compact design integrates easily into just about any device enclosure, and its industrial-grade, metal case can withstand operating temperatures ranging from -4˚ to 150˚ F. It comes in a kit that contains a USB AC power supply, an RG58 extension cable, an antenna, mounting hardware and user manual.
