Collaborators Develop LTE For IoT Modules

Wisol will use Sequans’ Monarch LTE Cat M1/NB1 chip, Calliope LTE Cat 1 chipset, and Colibri LTE Cat 4 chipset to design a unique family of modules for M2M and IoT applications. The company will design, market, and sell the IoT-optimized modules, worldwide. Its LTE-M module is based on Sequans’ Monarch LTE platform, described as the market’s first and most highly-optimized LTE-M (Cat M1) and NB-IoT (Cat NB1) chip, and a member of Sequans’ StreamliteLTE family of products for IoT devices. Monarch is purpose-built for narrowband IoT applications, including sensors, wearables, and other low-data, low-power M2M and IoT devices. It includes unique RF filtering technology that enables, within a single hardware design and at no added cost, a true single, worldwide SKU with multi-band support for universal and flexible IoT implementation.

 

Configurable for either LTE-M or NB-IoT, Monarch complies with the ultra-low-power and reduced complexity feature requirements of the 3GPP release 13 LTE Advanced Pro standard. It provides full support for power saving mode (PSM) and extended discontinuous reception (eDRX) to enable the long battery life needed by many IoT use cases, and provides the enhanced coverage modes defined in the standard that extend coverage for deep-indoor and remote deployments. Additionally, Monarch integrates baseband, RF, power management, and RAM into a single 6.5 x 8.5 mm package. For more details, visit http://www.sequans.com
