Telit has announced that its tri-band, single mode ME910C1-NA is the first Telit LTE Category M1 (LTE-M) module to receive certification for operation on AT&Tâs LTE-M nationwide network. Certification means IoT integrators and providers can quickly start taking advantage of the reliability and coverage of AT&Tâs LTE-M network for the IoT, leveraging the popularity of the Telit xE910 form factor.
“This is a highly anticipated milestone for Telit,” said Yosi Fait, Telits Interim chief executive officer. “Our existing customers using 2G or 3G modules from the xE910 family can now move to the new ME910C1-NA, go through streamlined AT&T testing with our help and start deploying LTE-M products in a matter of weeks. New customers can also get to market quickly with the assistance of our coast-to-coast network of customer support centers and distributors available in the same time zone and local presence in a number of metropolitan areas across the country.”
The ME910C1-NA module is a member of Telitâs best-selling xE910 family and can easily be applied as a pin-to-pin replacement for existing devices based on the familyâs modules for 2G, 3G, LTE Categories 1, 3 and 4. With the companyâs design-once-use-anywhere philosophy, developers can cut costs and development time by simply designing around the xE910 LGA common form factor, giving them the freedom to deploy technologies best suited for the applications environment. The ME910C1-NA also features optimized power consumption and optional quad-constellation GNSS support capabilities. The ME910C1-NA is based on the Qualcomm MDM9206 global multimode LTE modem and is the first module based on this chipset to receive AT&T LTE-M certification.
Industries that demand lower costs, security and extended product lifecycles now have more options with the Telit ME910C1-NA. The combination of LTE-M technology and extensive feature set makes this module an ideal solution for new applications in vertical segments such as telematics, smart energy and metering, asset tracking, retail point of sale, security and surveillance, industrial control and automation, smart home, and smart buildings.
