Embedded SIM Technology Supports LTE Modules 

London, 13 November 2019 – Telit Communications PLC (“Telit”, “the Group”, AIM: TCM), a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), today announces that Telit simWISE now supports 4G LTE-M and NB-IoT connectivity.

Telit simWISE is a core component of the company’s next generation cellular IoT module software suite OneEdge, which is designed to address widespread barriers to IoT adoption including device management, security and wireless connectivity management.

simWISE technology is a replacement or complement for manufacturers of cellular-connected devices using a traditional SIM card and tray, offering reduced manufacturing and ownership costs as well as improved product reliability and customer experience across all verticals and markets.  With this release, Telit looks to deliver new capabilities to its portfolio of cellular IoT modules based on the Qualcomm® MDM9206 and Qualcomm 9205 LTE IoT modems.

The new release of simWISE also integrates industry leading technology for LTE-M and NB-IoT-connected devices, reducing design constraints and reliability issues related to the removable SIM and tray, virtually eliminating logistic costs associated with control, stock and shipping of pre-provisioned SIM cards and controlling costs created by physical visits to swap SIM cards.

Paolo Dal Pino, Chief Executive Officer, Telit said:

“The physical SIM card is not a natural fit for non-consumer IoT devices like water meters, cargo tags, and remote sensor network devices used in mining, agriculture, and oil and gas. We have added 4G LTE-M and NB-IoT support to our industry leading simWISE iSIM lineup to support demand for cellular LPWA to connect billions of these IoT products.” 

Vieri Vanghi, Vice president, product management, Qualcomm Europe, Inc said:

“Qualcomm Technologies is proud to collaborate with Telit on simWISE Embedded SIM Technology for Telit‘s modules based on the Qualcomm MDM9206 and Qualcomm 9205 LTE IoT modems. The simWISE solution utilizes Qualcomm Technologies‘ holistic hardware and firmware to deliver robust security, scalability, and performance. By eliminating the physical SIM card hardware, Telit’s modules are uniquely positioned to deliver the savings and time-to-commercialization advantages that IoT products need in order to build scale.”
