Telit certifies LTE-M module with AT&T to expedite migration of existing 2G/3G connections

Telit announced Thursday that its tri-band, single mode ME910C1-NA is the initial Telit LTE Category M1 (LTE-M) module to receive certification for operation on AT&T’s LTE-M nationwide network. Certification means IoT integrators and providers can start taking advantage of the reliability and coverage of AT&T’s LTE-M network for the IoT, leveraging the popularity of the Telit xE910 form factor.

The ME910C1-NA module is a member of Telit’s best-selling xE910 family and can easily 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 around the xE910 LGA common form factor, giving them the freedom to deploy technologies best suited for the application’s environment.

The ME910C1-NA also features optimized power consumption and optional quad-constellation GNSS support capabilities. The ME910C1-NA is based on the Qualcomm MDM9206 global multimode LTE modem and is the first module based on this chipset to receive AT&T LTE-M certification.  

“This is a highly anticipated milestone for Telit,” said Yosi Fait, Telit’s Interim Chief Executive Officer. “Our existing customers using 2G or 3G modules from the xE910 family can now move to the new ME910C1-NA, go through streamlined AT&T testing with our help and start deploying LTE-M products 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 and local presence in a number of metropolitan areas across the country.”

The xE910 family addresses global applications requiring one-region-at-a-time coverage and is ideal for fixed-wireless applications such as utility metering, home and commercial security and situations with limited in-region mobility such as POS and logistics terminals.

The xE910 family allows applications to be upgraded easily, through a variety of options, such as migrating from 2G to 3G or 4G or upgrading from 2 bands to 3, 4 or more. The family fully preserves the core design of the application or device from launch to phase-out with modules packaged in a common 28.2×28.2 mm LGA footprint.

Industries that demand lower costs, security and extended product lifecycles now have more options with the Telit ME910C1-NA. The combination of LTE-M technology and extensive feature set makes this module an ideal solution for new applications in vertical segments such as telematics, smart energy and metering, asset tracking, retail point of sale, security and surveillance, industrial control and automation, smart home, and smart buildings.

Telit has the broadest portfolio of certified IoT LTE Category modules in the industry.
