[Düsseldorf, Germany, March 5th 2017] M2COMM will launch a series of new ELSA (Electronic Labelling System Application) products at EuroShop 2017. ELSA is the world’s most compact electronic shelf labelling (ESL) solution, its new product line features upgraded hardware, improved functionality and a new range of ESL tags. The company will be exhibiting and demonstrating ELSA at EuroShop 2017in Düsseldorf, Germany (Booth #2A11 – Hall 2).
Launched in 2014, ELSA is based on M2COMM’s proprietary, cellular-inspired communication protocol. With its superior performance in data transmission and ultra-low power consumption, this latest release of ELSA has more advanced system integration, robustness and multi-store management capabilities.
The integrated ELSA Access Point (iAP) at only 100 x 68 x 25mm, is the smallest ESL base station in the world. With coverage of up to 30,000 square meters, the iAP’s all-in-one solution handles data transactions with the ELSA iRT (Router) without the need for additional hardware, a built-in SD card slot for data back-ups, integrated battery backup (iAP and iRT); and for fast and easy deployment, the iAP supports magnetic attachment to suitable surfaces. Both the iAP and iRT can coexist within a Wi-Fi environment. But a smart label solution is not just about displaying/changing prices or promos on demand; the new ELSA Cloud now provides customers with a simple way to manage and monitor ESLs across different locales remotely.
M2COMM’s new Elsa is the world’s most compact ESL solutionwith advanced system integration, robustness and multi-store management capabilities.
M2COMM is also pleased to announce the introduction of its new sleek ‘Courbure’ range of ESL tags. In the past, ESL has been widely adopted in general retail markets, logistical businesses and inventory management whose focus was on performance, stability and ultra-low power consumption. With its curvaceous and elegant style, the new ‘Courbure’ tags bring a level of sophisticated design that should appeal to even more markets, such as fashion retail trade.
M2COMM introduces new sleek ‘Courbure’ range of ESL tags to attract fashion retail trade.
“The elegant and simple design of M2COMM’s ELSA system is what first attracted our attention; and we have been immensely satisfied with the products quality and reliable service,” says Piper Chiu, President of Simple Mart. “M2COMM excels at doing good things ‘better’, we will continue our close partnership with M2COMM and adopt more ELSA ESLs into our stores.”
“The new ELSA is a big move in ESL evolution, not only the sleek curved label design and the hardware renovation, it also presents a solution for connected stores,” said Derrick Wei, CEO of M2COMM. “ELSA has a solid technology to support remote, accurate and fast ESL operation. With our new products and ELSA cloud, we have confidence to greatly elevate operational efficiency in retail and will expand the ESL application to more industries.”
New ELSA products and ELSA cloud will be ready and available in Q2 2017. M2COMM will be demonstrating ELSA at booth #2A11 (Hall 2) in EuroShop 2017 in Düsseldorf, Germany from March 5th – 9th.

One design for Europe, Middle East and Africa, Americas and Asia Pacific, device makers can now exploit the benefits of simplified logistics and cost savings
[Hsinchu, Taiwan, January 23th 2017] M2COMM, a leading Internet of Things (IoT) provider, today announced that its flagship ‘Uplynx’ SoC had been certified by Sigfox. Now the Uplynx SoC and Sigfox verified™ wireless modules for Europe, MEA, Americas and Asia Pacific are available to device makers.
Uplynx targets device makers that require a cost-effective, low power, small form factor solution. The demand for cost-effective BOM is also reflected in the certified reference design; no expensive TCXO (uses standard crystals); capable of delivering 22dBm transmission power without using an external amplifier; a 32-bit processor, 128 KB flash and 24K SRAM built-in provides all the computational power and flexibility developers need and removes the requirement for an external MCU. In addition, device makers are able to design one PCB suitable for multiple regions using Uplynx, saving significant engineering effort and management hassles.
To speed up the development cycle for simple applications, M2COMM provides an SDK and a unique compiler-free EasyAT design environment for developers. Whilst the SDK provides access to all of the features on the Uplynx SoC, the EasyAT allows simple application developers to finish their designs in much shorter timeframes.
“M2COMM’s Uplynx is a powerful SoC platform that enabled us to develop a prototype in less than 2 months. The quality of support we received from M2COMM speeded up our team’s development drastically.” said Philippe Chiu, Managing Director of UnaBiz, SIGFOX operator in Singapore and Taiwan. “I am very happy to see M2COMM joining the SIGFOX ecosystem, bringing a one-of-a-kind multi region platform.”
“Increasing numbers of LPWAN appliance developers are turning to the Uplynx SoC for their designs, with its highly integrated, multi region design, developers are seeing economic benefits through reductions in design spins and cycles.” said CK Tseng, VP of Worldwide Sales & Marketing at M2COMM. “We believe that total cost of ownership will be the main driver to design adoption and with that in mind we set about designing and manufacturing our Uplynx SoC in a way that reduced the dependency for additional components and saved the BOM cost for our customers. The LPWAN market is still in its infancy, but with the M2COMM Uplynx at the forefront, it’s going to grow quickly.”
“Working closely with Sigfox operators around the world, M2COMM has proven to be a valuable partner of our global ecosystem,” said Tony Francesca, Vice President of Global Ecosystem Partners at Sigfox. “With M2COMM’s Uplynx SoC providing a compelling, reliable and multiregional solution, we look forward to enabling many IoT use cases and millions of connected devices over Sigfox’s global network”.
Pricing and Availability
Samples and production quantities of the M2COMM Uplynx SoC and Sigfox verified™ wireless modules for Europe, MEA, Americas and Asia Pacific are available now. To simplify application development, M2COMM offers the Uplynx evaluation kit at USD $49.99. To purchase product samples and developments tools, visit http://www.m2comm.co/Uplynx/.
