Telit, a global enabler of the IoT, announced that its ME910C1-WW is the first module certified by AT&T for its recently launched Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) network. NB-IoT is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) radio technology standard developed by 3GPP to enable a wide range of cellular devices and services. The ME910C1-WW also operates on the carrier’s complementary LTE-M Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) network for the Internet of Things.
The ME910C1-WW has a wide range of usage such as smart meters, point-of-sale terminals, industrial sensors, asset management, healthcare monitors and home automation systems. ME910C1-WW is an ideal candidate for IoT applications that require low power, long battery life, reports Embedded Computing Design.
The ME910C1-WW provides reliable connections even when IoT devices are in hard-to-reach locations. The radio frequency front-end (RFFE) engineering provides the module with superior performance across the entire industrial-grade operating temperature range from -40°C to +85°C.
“The Telit ME910C1-WW is already certified for use on AT&T’s LTE-M IoT network, and now it’s the first module certified for its new NB-IoT network,” said Manish Watwani, Chief Marketing and Product Officer, Telit. “These firsts highlight our commitment to enabling IoT device designers, manufacturers and their customers to take advantage of AT&T’s latest and greatest network technologies.”
The ME910C1-WW supports global LTE bands as well as 2G fallback and is available for use with carriers in North America, Europe, Japan, China, Australia and other geographies.
AT&T’s NB-IoT and LTE-M networks deliver advanced services and capabilities for the IoT that include coverage extension, improved battery life and lower module and service costs,” according to Chris Penrose, President, IoT Solutions at AT&T. “With the recent launch of our NB-IoT network, we’re moving rapidly to make these advantages a reality for our business customers. Telit’s multi-mode module will play a critical role,” Penrose said.
