GM862 Cellular Module

This is a GSM module. All you need to do is to insert a SIM card (normal mobile phone SIM card) and vola! your project can communicate with the rest of the world via GSM network. This includes sending and receiving SMS, data calls, etc.

GM862 Cellular Module from Telit

This GM862 Cellular Module is controlled via AT commands. This means all you have to do is send a string of serial characters such as "ATD 1234567" and the module will place a call. Once the module has been connected, a serial connection is made and data can be transferred by sending and receiving serial strings through the module. It's just so easy!

You can download the datasheet HERE.

How about making a huge LED display hanging in the office that displays incoming SMS? ;p
