Gemalto LTE Cat. 1 solution wins IoT Evolution Connected Home & Building Award(PresseBox) (Amsterdam, )
The Cinterion ELS61 LTE Cat. 1 module is part of a family of Low Power Wide Area M2M connectivity solutions designed for IoT applications that require the longevity of LTE networks but don't need the higher speeds they offer. The module provides advantages in power efficiency and size while delivering M2M-optimized speeds of 10 Mbit/s download and 5Mbit/s uplink.
Connected Home IoT device makers can also benefit greatly from Gemalto's On-Demand Connectivity (ODC) offering, in conjunction with the easy implementation of an eSIM (embedded SIM) in their initial designs. ODC enables remote activation of network connectivity when the device is powered on for the first time. This helps to reduce the number of manufacturing variants required, and simplify network subscription management for devices with particularly long lifecycles.
"The award from IoT Evolution highlights Gemalto's commitment to innovating leading edge solutions that connect, secure and monetize the expanding Internet of Things," said Andreas Haegele, Senior Vice President IoT Products Business Line at Gemalto. "The Cinterion LTE Cat. 1 solution provides both network and power efficiency, and shares the same footprint as all modules in our Industrial Family to provide a clear migration path to LTE Cat. M1, LTE NB and forthcoming MTC technologies."
