London, May 18, 2016 – Telit Communications PLC, (AIM: TCM, “Telit”, the “Group”), a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), has received certification from AT&T* for its LTE module for use on the carrier’s North American LTE wireless network. The CAT-1 module is the first in its class to be certified by AT&T.
Oozi Cats, Telit’s Chief Executive, commented:
“This is an important development for us as it means that our CAT-1 IoT module is approved for immediate deployment in scale on AT&T’s pioneering CAT-1 service, on the carrier’s LTE network.“
“Adding this CAT-1 certification paves the way for our customer to launch LTE-CAT-1 based products and accelerate their IoT deployments, and also paves the way for developers and integrators to leverage not only current capabilities but also the evolution of technologies slated to enhance LTE communication in the future.”
Telit’s dual-mode LTE CAT-1 IoT module (LE910-NA1) with fallback to 3G, supports LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 12 and 13 as well as 3G bands 2 and 5. It is a member of Telit’s best-selling xE910 family and can be applied as a drop-in replacement in existing devices based on the family’s 2G and 3G models.
Supporting speeds of 5Mbps upload and 10 Mbps download, the certified module is positioned for developers and integrators looking to migrate existing North American 2G or 3G IoT devices to LTE as well as for new IoT solutions not requiring full LTE speeds, leveraging cost savings associated with CAT-1.
The certified module is Telit IoT Portal-ready, supporting high-level commands specifically designed to provide quick and hassle-free onboarding of device and data to the cloud, customer apps, back-end systems and servers. Telit IoT Portal-ready modules powered by deviceWISE make device onboarding simple to program, maintain and scale.
The LE910-NA1 is a member of the xE910 form factor family which features a common uniform 28.2 x 28.2 x 2.2mm LGA package, providing long-life with cost-optimized operation for the integrated solution.
