It also leverages CalAmp’s proprietary PULS™ (Programming, Update, and Logistics System) over-the-air device provisioning and maintenance utility to facilitate comprehensive device management for the entire deployment lifecycle.
The LMU-5530 boasts an impressive set of interfaces, wireless local area connectivity options and other features including:
- Integrated 802.11 b/g/n/i Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® 4.0
- Dual Ethernet ports
- Two serial interfaces
- External USB 2.0 interface
- Extensive digital and analog I/O
- Internal backup battery

“The LMU-5530 provides robust 4G connectivity with extensive routing and security features, making it ideal for a broad set of mobile and fixed applications,” said Greg Gower, Senior Vice President and General Manager of CalAmp’s MRM business. “The open, extensible Linux framework enables our partners to innovate and add demonstrable value for their customers and targeted markets.”
Available this spring, the LMU-5530 will be integrated and offered through CalAmp’s Application Solution Provider partners and authorized resellers.
