Linkwave FXT009 Ready To Use Kit

END OF LIFE — see description for suggested replacements

The FXT009 is now end of life. Suggested replacements are GL8200 or Maestro M100-3G. The Maestro M100-3G supports OpenAT and has similar cable connectivity to the FXT009.


The Linkwave Ready to Use Kit was designed by our experts to contain all the hardware required when starting out with the AirLink FXT009 Modem. The FXT009 can be used as a GSM modem, providing SMS, voice/audio and circuit switched data connectivity. The built-in IP stack provides simple set up of IP over GPRS/EDGE sessions. It can be easily integrated to a wide range of industrial equipment, allowing remote monitoring and control. The FXT009 can also be used as a standalone product; with an embedded customer application developed using the Sierra Wireless Development Suite.
