Telit to Roll out LTE Category M1 module in the U.S. with Verizon and Qualcomm
Telit is collaborating with Verizon as a key supplier of IoT modules for the carrier’s LTE Category M1 (LTE-M1) service, company announced last week. In cooperation with Qualcomm Technologies, Telit is delivering IoT modules in full alignment with Verizon’s features and timing requirements.
IoT integrators and providers in the U.S. and other regions looking to export to North America will be able to apply knowledge and experience designing for the popular form xE910 factor to take advantage of Verizon’s nationwide LTE-M1 coverage planned to occur by the end of Q1 2017.
The ME910C1-NV, is a LTE-CAT M1 IoT module based on Qualcomm Technologies’ MDM9206 modem. Qualcomm Technologies’ CAT M1 products are fundamental to the rollout planned by Verizon, and Telit is working closely with both companies to ensure the timely availability of its module. Because the module is a member of Telit’s xE910 family, it can be applied as a drop-in replacement in existing devices based on family models for 2G, 3G and even higher categories of LTE. The ME910C1-NV natively supports Verizon’s ThingSpace platform, the carrier’s Web-based developer platform for IoT.
