Telit’s ME866A1-NA LTE-M and LE866A1-NA Cat 1 modules offer low-power single-mode, data-only choices for integrators of new and existing IoT devices. Telit’s industrial-grade xE866, 15x25mm modules provide an instant drop-in migration path for existing 2G and 3G devices based on the popular form-factor.
Telit, today announced that the LE866A1-NA LTE Category 1 (Cat 1) and ME866A1-NA LTE-M modules received certification for operation on AT&T’s LTE nationwide network for data-only applications.
Certification means IoT integrators and providers can immediately develop and test their devices with the modules and start taking advantage of the reliability and coverage of AT&T’s LTE Cat 1, LTE-M services.
Yossi Moscovitz, Telit President of Products and Solutions, said:
“With new application areas like wearables, fitness and mhealth monitoring, connected law enforcement body cameras, drones, robotics and smart home, low weight, low power and reduced footprint are essential. The xE866 family remains the industry’s smallest form factor to offer 2G, 3G, Cat 1, LTE-M and NB-IoT variants for integrators to innovate in these areas.”
“Telit modules like these two are designed from the ground up to meet industrial grade quality and performance requirements. Most IoT applications are unforgiving on field failures. We are proud that our brand has stood for quality and low risk for our customers for 20 years and will remain that way even as low-cost, high-risk commodity brands continue entering the market.”
The certified modules are members of Telit’s best-selling xE866 family and can be applied as a pin-to-pin replacement for existing devices based on the family’s modules for 2G and 3G. With the company’s design-once-use-anywhere philosophy, developers can cut costs and development time by simply designing to the xE866 LGA common form factor, giving them the freedom to deploy technologies best suited for the application’s environment.
With download speeds of up to 10Mbps and full cellular mobility, the LE866A1-NA is ideal for telematics, security, surveillance, smart city and other application areas requiring small dimensions, low power consumption and mid-scale data rates.
The ME866A1-NA delivering high in-building penetration, low power consumption and download speeds of up to 375kbps is ideal for applications in deep indoor environments and others like metering, smart cities, sensors, health monitors, home automation, asset tracking, telematics and wearables.
