Gemalto : launches new wireless module to monetise IoT
The new module is ideal for use cases that are not dependent on speed, but rather require network longevity and improved indoor coverage such as asset trackers, healthcare solutions, smart meters and industrial sensors.
The new wireless module is the first IoT solution based on a dedicated LTE Cat. M1 chipset, according to the vendor. The solution operates on LTE spectrum and is capable of supporting more than 10 frequency bands from a single hardware device.
In the future, the new module will be able to run LTE NB-IoT protocols on the same hardware, giving customers a future-proof path to the latest network standards.
Sharing the same footprint as existing Cinterion products, the LTE Cat. M1 solution enables easy migration from 2G and 3G devices. Development samples are available immediately before debuting on the
“The LTE market for IoT is vast and requires connectivity solutions for a range of devices, from low-power, low-bandwidth applications addressed by LTE-Cat M1, to higher performance, wider bandwidth use cases best addressed by LTE Cat 1 or Cat 3,” said
“Gemalto’s LTE-M1, LTE Cat. 1 and VoLTE Cat. 1 solutions ensure that highly efficient 4G connectivity is available for every type of IoT application,” said
