SHENZHEN, China --- Fibocom Wireless announces L816-AM, the world's thinnest LTE Cat 1 module for the North American market with global 3G/2G fallback. The L816-AM is a multi-mode LTE CAT1 module supporting LTE bands 2, 4 & 12, penta band WCDMA and quad band GSM, and is powered by the Intel® XMM™ 7120M LTE modem. L816-AM includes 8 industrial and 4 carrier certifications across the globe, allowing seamless deployment in the USA, Canada, Europe, Asia Pacific, Japan and South America including Brazil.
