Fibocom Wireless, a leading global provider of wireless modules for the Internet of Things (IoT), announces L816-AM, the world’s thinnest LTE Cat 1 module for the North American market with global 3G/2G fallback.
The L816-AM is a multi-mode LTE CAT1 module supporting LTE bands 2, 4 & 12, penta band WCDMA and quad band GSM, and is powered by the Intel® XMM™ 7120M LTE modem. L816-AM includes 8 industrial and 4 carrier certifications across the globe, allowing seamless deployment in the USA, Canada, Europe, Asia Pacific, Japan and South America including Brazil.
Amy DeBuysere, VP of Business Development, said:
“With only 1.55mm thickness, L816-AM is the perfect candidate for providing cellular connections on lower bandwidth global consumer products or hand-held devices, where slimness matters.”
Samples of the L816-AM are now readily available for testing and integration. Global carrier certifications are to be completed by end of 2016. Commercial availability of L816-AM by early 2017.
