Enabling a new generation of massive low-cost IoT device deployments numbering in the hundreds of thousands or millions, the ME310G1 is the Category M1/NB2 evolution of the brand new Telit xE310 product family. Exceeding market demands for optimized power consumption and enhanced quality of coverage, Cat M1/NB2 devices are specifically tailored for low data throughput IoT applications. The ME310G1 creates brand-new IoT-enabled business models by addressing connectivity and battery life concerns for the growing number of OEMs, integrators and device designers looking to dramatically increase the number of data points they can collect from their operations and customers via IoT devices. IoT is now possible at a scale and cost point that makes many previously unviable deployments ROI positive.
Compliant with 3GPP Release 14, the ME310G1 LTE UE CatM1/NB2 module enables increased power saving for IoT applications using Power Saving Mode (PSM) and extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX), allowing devices to wake up periodically, while delivering only the smallest amounts of data necessary before returning to sleep mode. Enhanced coverage, enabled by maximum coupling loss (MCL) of up to +15dB/+20dB, provides superior in-building penetration compared to earlier cellular LTE standards. LTE CatM1/NB2 devices are optimized in cost, size and power consumption compared to higher UE categories. 3GPP Release 14 further improves these features by adding techniques to increase the data rate for LTE-M and NB-IoT. These advantages make the ME310G1 ideal for enabling quick implementation of LTE technology where low cost and low power consumption are more relevant than high speed.
The ME310G1 enables enterprises to deploy new small footprint designs across many application areas including asset tracking, health-care monitoring, smart metering, portable devices, industrial sensors, home automation, and many others benefitting from low-power and low data rate capabilities.
The xE310 flexible perimeter footprint family includes pinto-pin compatible 2G (GE310-GNSS) and CatM1/NB2 (ME310G1) modules, enabling integrators to design a single PCB layout and deploy any combination of 2G and 4G technologies.
Telit’s miniature xE310 family delivers high business and technical value for OEMs, integrators and IoT device designers interested in low power, low cost, small footprint devices to take digital transformation initiatives to the next level across their organization.
The 94-pad LGA footprint delivers a comprehensive set of features with a surplus of reserve pads to ‘futureproof’ the end-device with additions like Bluetooth connectivity and GNSS. The flexible perimeter space allows modules in the family to go in sizes from around 300mm2 to below 200mm2. The xE310 is designed to allow for single as well as multi technology products such as combination cellular +GNSS and other solutions in fixed and mobile applications for smart utilities, home and commercial automation, telematics, POS, and smart cities
