u‑blox' GNSS and wireless module philosophy

Focus on compatibility and upgradeability: In today’s electronics industry, particularly for industrial machine‑to‑machine (M2M) applications such as fleet and asset management systems, product cycles are short, typically 9 months to a year for each product upgrade cycle, with overall product life‑span lasting up to 10 years.


During this time, designers must continuously improve their products to meet emerging new technologies as well as address regional markets beyond the scope of their original design. This creates design challenges, especially when upgrading the positioning and wireless modem components to address new market requirements such as extended GNSS support, as well as compatibility with multiple mobile network standards. This whitepaper examines some of these issues and recommended solutions.
