  • LM960A9-P LTE Cat 9 CBRS OnGo-only variant available  

As the LTE standard evolves, router and gateway OEMs can leverage the LM960A18 or A9 for high-speed downloads, fast upload speeds and reliability for applications, including:

  • High-definition video surveillance
  • Digital signage
  • Fixed wireless broadband access
  • SD-WAN

Telit is among the first to offer 5G data cards based on Qualcomm Technologies’ second-generation Snapdragon X55 5G modem and antenna modules with integrated radio-frequency (RF) transceiver, RF front-end (RFFE) and antenna elements.

Telit’s award-winning FN980 5G data cards are ideal for a variety of deployments, including:

  • Enterprise network appliances
  • Branch and remote office routers and gateways
  • Customer premises equipment (CPE)
  • Bandwidth-intensive applications that require speeds of more than 10 times that of a typical LTE device
  • Professional video broadcasting field cameras 
  • Private and Public 5G for industrial automation (Industry 4.0) routers 
  • Medical equipment for emergency pop-up field hospitals

Telit 5G data cards support both non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) modes of operation to enable support for all major 5G networks that are expected to be deployed in 5G Phase 1 (based on 3GPP’s Release 15).

Why Telit Uses Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G Modems

Telit 5G data cards are powered by innovative Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G modems, which:

  • Allow OEMs to build 5G multimode devices
  • Support virtually any combination of spectrum bands and modes
  • Allow OEMs to bring a variety of connected devices to 5G networks
  • Support private 5G networks 

Benefit from the Advantages of 5G

The significant benefits of 5G — revolutionary speeds, low latency, high reliability, network elasticity, security, scalability and other game-changing aspects — create unprecedented business innovation opportunities. 

Imagine what a typical 10x reduction in latency could do for a business that relies on telepresence. For a robotic arm that handles hazardous materials, latency approaching 1 millisecond could eliminate the lag time that currently inhibits 5G adoption for closed-loop, mission-critical control systems. 

A Dedicated 5G Modem: The Qualcomm Snapdragon X55

Enterprises need more than promises to reap the benefits of 5G. They need proven, practical and secure adapter modules and data cards that speed adoption and integration, enable global expansion, and are based on dependable industry products. The Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X55 5G modem, Qualcomm Technologies’ second-generation 5G New Radio (NR) modem with integrated multi-mode support, is designed to deliver breakthrough wireless performance and accelerate global 5G rollout. 

The Next Generation of Cellular Networks

To appreciate the rapid evolution of 5G, consider that the era of cellular telecommunication began with the first generation (1G) of mobile technology in the 1980s. Then came 2G in the early 1990s, followed in the early 2000s by 3G, a disruptive technology based on the Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) standard. In 2010, 4G entered the market with two competing systems, Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and WiMAX. LTE emerged as the standard-bearer and became the fastest-developing mobile technology in history — at least until the emergence of 5G.

Cellular Network Generation

LTE has been successfully deployed worldwide to billions of mobile users. Its growth is expected to continue as it evolves with new functionalities that improve the customer experience, reduce network costs and is an integral part of the 5G roadmap.

3GPP: The Mobile Broadband Standard

The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standards organization has seen commercial launches of 5G networks since 2018. We are amid a rapid transition to a new world of mobile broadband opportunities. The impact of 5G across industries will be dramatic, revolutionizing the IT and telecom ecosystems by enabling exponentially faster mobile data networks with lower latency and smart power management. 

For businesses, 5G creates a nearly endless array of new opportunities across various vertical markets. Device manufacturers, communications service providers (CSPs) and other enterprises will be able to offer entirely new services and enhanced solutions that connect the world in previously unheard-of ways.
