Sprint announced that Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), is to start commercial deliveries of the LE910C1-NS LTE Cat 1 module upon conclusion of Sprint certification expected for June 2017. The product is an embedded industrial IoT LTE module delivering up to 10 Mbps download and 5 Mbps upload speeds.
Because of pin-to-pin compatibility with both CDMA and EV-DO versions of Sprint certified xE910 modules, Telit integration support, powerful development tools and resources, the new Cat 1 module allows Sprint IoT customers to realize significant reduction in time to market and savings for both new projects as well as upgrades from 2G and 3G to LTE.
The module will primarily be used for IoT applications, enabling cellular data communication in devices used, for example, in warehouse management, remote monitoring and control, robotics, traffic control, logistic services, supply chain management, fleet management and telemedicine.
“We are excited to certify this module because Telit is a world-class leader in the IoT,” said Mohamad Nasser, General Manager of IoT at Sprint. “Having this module commercially available and Sprint certified allows us to expand the number of applications we can provide new customers and has the added benefit of simplifying migration of current IoT customers to LTE.”
The Telit LE910C1-NS single-mode module operates in multiple bands including LTE B2, B4, B5, B12, B25 and B26. Features include a high-speed USB 2.0 port, industrial operating temperature range (-40°C to +85°C) and advanced power saving modes (3GPP Release 12).
