Telit certifies LTE Cat 1 and Cat 4 modules with U.S. Cellular to deliver LTE speed, reliability and longevity expanding connectivity options

Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), announced Wednesday that its dual mode LE910-NA1 LTE Category 1 (Cat 1) and LE910-NA V2 LTE Category 4 (Cat 4) modules are certified for operation on U.S. Cellular’s nationwide network. With the certification, integrators and providers can take advantage of the carrier’s high-quality network and competitive IoT rate plans.

The LE910-NA1 and LE910-NA V2 modules are members of Telit’s xE910 line and can be applied as a pin-to-pin replacement for existing devices based on the family’s modules for 2G, 3G, LTE Categories 1, 3 and 4. With the company’s design-once-use-anywhere philosophy, developers can cut costs and development time by simply designing to the xE910 LGA common form factor, giving them the freedom to deploy technologies best suited for the application’s environment.

The LE910-NA1 features 10/5 Mbps download/upload speeds and optimized power consumption. The LE910-NA V2 features 150/50 Mbps download/upload speeds. They are the initial Telit LTE modules to receive U.S Cellular certification.  

The UE910-EU V2 AUTO is the new ruggedized variant of the UE910-V2 family designed for use in the most demanding of automotive applications and manufactured under ISO TS16949 specification. The UE910 V2 product line is a member of the Telit x910 family. It offers an HSDPA module with dual-band in 2G and 3G, featuring both analog and digital audio and designed on the xE910 LGA unified form factor.

The UE910-EU V2 AUTO allows the integration of automotive and other applications requiring assured extended operating temperature range and mechanical ruggedness within the ever-shrinking space inside electronics bays in trucks, automobiles, and other mobile platforms.

The UE910-EU V2 AUTO also offers in-band modem capability and is compliant with eCall EU directive. The eCall project is sponsored by the European Commission and is based on the EU directive E112.

The combination of LTE Cat 1 and Cat 4 modules in the same form factor family offers options for providers looking to deliver different grades of service or which require different speed and power consumption combinations across different markets for their products.

The modules are ideal for applications in vertical segments such as video surveillance, healthcare, telematics, smart energy and metering, asset tracking, retail, point of sale, security, industrial control and automation, smart home, and smart buildings.

“This is a significant achievement for Telit to provide our customers in North America the opportunity to run their LTE-connected IoT deployments under the U.S. Cellular network,” said Manish Watwani, executive vice president global product management at Telit. “With the certification of both LTE Cat 1 and Cat 4 modules, existing Telit and U.S. Cellular customers using 2G or 3G xE910 modules can simply drop in one of these newly certified modules and be in market in a matter of weeks. New customers can also get to market quickly with the assistance of our coast-to-coast network of customer support centers and distributors available in the same time zone with local presence in a number of offices across the country.”

“These certifications provide our business and government customers access to the latest IoT technology solutions so they can cost-effectively enhance their operations,” said Scott Scheuber, director of emerging product and services management at U.S. Cellular. “We are pleased to be working with a well-established IoT provider such as Telit to provide their expertise and solutions to our growing IoT customer base.
