The Telit NE310L2 series features the new cellular IoT Chipset from Sony, the ALT1255 low-power LTE Category NB2 chipset with an integrated SIM (iSIM), global LTE bands support, rich application layer, and GSM/GPRS fallback modem. The 5G-ready ALT1255 is designed for battery-powered, cost-sensitive, worldwide LPWA applications such as utility meters, medical devices, logistic trackers, industrial controllers and more.
The Telit NE310L2’s other key features include:
- An ultra-compact 13.1 x 14.3 mm footprint (NE310L2-W1 version) for integration in size-constrained devices.
- 2G fallback with a 15 x 18 mm form factor (NE310L2-WW) to ensure the best service in regions with mixed NB-IoT and 2G network coverage.
- Power Saving Mode (PSM) and extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX) to enable best-in-class power consumption for battery-operated devices.
- 23 dBm output power (Power Class 3) to maximize uplink coverage reliability and performance.
In a future release, the NE310L2 will add NB-IoT connectivity inside the module through an iSIM based on an integrated hardware secure element (iSE) that is compliant with state-of-the-art industry security requirements. As a member of Telit’s award-winning xE310 family, the NE310L2 has pin-to-pin compatibility, enabling integrators to design a single PCB layout and deploy any combination of 2G and 4G technologies.
“With the new NE310L2 series of 3GPP Rel. 14 compliant NB-IoT modules, Telit is once again anticipating and meeting the IoT market’s rapidly evolving needs, including for affordable but feature-rich devices that can be deployed at mass scale,” said Manish Watwani, Chief Marketing and Product Officer, Telit. “Powered by the new Sony’s Altair ALT1255 cellular IoT chipset, the Telit NE310L2 gives OEMs, integrators and other businesses a unique set of capabilities that will enable them to grow their markets and expanding into new ones.”
