Pre-packaged with Orange connectivity, new module simplifies IoT device deployment.
Sequans Communications announced the availability of a new module compatible with Orange networks and based on Sequans’ Monarch.
The module is being offered as part of the Orange Live Booster Program that delivers a range of modules pre-packaged with Orange cellular connectivity to simplify the process of adding connectivity to IoT devices. The new Monarch-based Live Booster module comes complete with an integrated SIM that assures developers and manufacturers that their IoT devices will operate on Orange networks.
Georges Karam, Sequans CEO, said:
“Orange is making sure their IoT customers have a clear and easy path for developing IoT devices and getting them launched on Orange’s networks as quickly as possible. The integrated SIM makes for a complete, out-of-the-box solution and we are excited to contribute our technology to Orange’s Live Booster Program.”
“Sequans is a leading provider of LTE chipsets for IoT solutions, powering IoT devices all over the world,” said Xiaohong Zhou, vice president, Orange Products, Intelligence and Experience, Orange. “The new module addresses the complexity developers face in connecting IoT objects and we are pleased to offer a powerful Sequans-based solution in our Live Booster Program.”
The new module features worldwide deployment and roaming capability and is based on Sequans’ Monarch LTE-M/NB-IoTchipset, a member of Sequans’ StreamliteLTE™ family of LTE chip products for the Internet of Things. The module comprises an Orange SIM, Sequans’ Monarch LTE chipset, and all other elements necessary for a complete LTE modem system. These include an LTE-optimized transceiver, a complete Single SKU™ RF front-end to support LTE bands worldwide, and key interfaces, all in a single compact LGA package.
Sequans’ Monarch technology successfully passed interoperability testing with Orange last year and the new module will be generally available later in 2019.
