Tiny LTE Cat M1 Module Drives Verizon's 4G LTE Network

u-blox announces certification of its SARA-R404M module for Verizon's nationwide Category M1 (Cat M1) LTE network, which will support industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. As per its maker and measuring 16 mm x 26 mm in an LGA form factor, the SARA-R404M module is the smallest Cat M1 module available on the market today.


The SARA-R404M LTE Cat M1 module consumes less power than comparable 3G or 4G technologies and is optimized for a battery life up to 10 years for some use cases, and offering an extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. It also supports extended coverage in buildings and basement with a 15 dB coverage enhancement as compared to GSM. Further, critical firmware updates can be delivered via the u-blox uFOTA (firmware over the air) client server solution, which supports LWM2M - a light and compact protocol that is ideal for IoT applications.
