Thalwil, Switzerland and Overland Park, Kansas – April 29, 2013 – Swiss-based u-blox, a leading provider of cellular modem modules; Sprint, a major U.S. telecommunications provider; and Taoglas, a global antenna solutions provider, announce a series of nationwide seminars covering all aspects of migrating M2M applications from GSM/GPRS to CDMA technology.


The 4-hour seminars are part of a recently announced u-blox and Sprint collaboration to allow customers designing products for telematics, telemetry, automotive and security applications to extend the product lifetime of their existing 2G M2M devices by seamlessly migrating to the CDMA network with minimal effort. Those customers concerned about the continued availability of 2G GSM networks in the United States can now select from a variety of affordable u-blox modems tested for compatibility on Sprint’s CDMA 1xRTT network.
