AT&T Certifies an LTE IoT Module by Sequans

AT&T Certifies an LTE IoT Module by Sequans

Based on Sequans’ Calliope LTE Cat 1 Platform; module supports AT&T’s LTE bands 2, 4, and 12.

Sequans Communications S.A.announced that its US130Q LTE Cat 1 module has been certified to operate on AT&T’s 4G LTE network, having achieved technical acceptance from AT&T’s Network Ready Lab.

The all-in-one LTE for IoT module is based on Sequans’ Calliope LTE Cat 1 Platform and includes memory, power management and a complete RF front-end for AT&T’s LTE bands, all in a single, affordable, compact, surface-mount package.

“We are very pleased to see the US130Q, one of several pin-compatible modules Sequans has designed for the US LTE market, now ready for deployment on AT&T’s LTE network,” said Danny Kedar, head of Sequans’ IoT business unit.

“It is the answer to demand from customers for an AT&T Cat 1 module and it is ideal for IoT applications such as vehicle telematics, security, and surveillance that need LTE Cat 1 throughput. US130Q is a complete solution and comes pre-integrated and pre-certified, significantly reducing time to market for device makers.”

AT&T’s Network Ready Lab program ensures that a module receiving AT&T’s technical acceptance meets AT&T’s performance, interoperability and feature requirements, and that it is approved to operate on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. The US130Q module, supporting LTE bands 2, 4, and 12, is based on Sequans’ Calliope LTE Cat 1 Platform that was ADAPT verified by AT&T last year.
