If you need to add cellular connectivity to an existing product that has a mini-PCIe slot, Proxicast's XB2MC adapter and a NimbeLink Skywire modem is the fastest and easiest solution.
No need to redesign your product and go through very expensive and time-consuming carrier certifications - just use the XB2MC adapter to convert NimbeLink's XBEE interface to an industry standard mPCIe interface. The XB2MC adapter is totally transparent - the NimbeLink modem will appear as a USB device to your host's operating system.
Proxicast's exclusive flexible printed circuit cable feature enables you to use the existing SIM (R-UIM) reader on your host board. The XB2MC adapter routes the SIM card's circuits directly to the NimbeLink module so users do not have to open your chassis in order to change SIM cards.
