Telit claims that its quad-band, dual-mode ME910C1-AU, based on the Qualcomm MDM9206 LTE IoT modem, is the first module to receive Cat M1 certification for operation on Telstra's mobile network.
Certification means IoT integrators and providers looking to deploy in Australia can quickly start taking advantage of the reliability and around three million square kilometers of Telstra's LTE Cat M1 coverage built specifically for the IoT.
The ME910C1-AU 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 for the xE910 LGA common form factor, giving them the freedom to deploy technologies best suited for the application's environment. The ME910C1-AU also features optimized power consumption and optional quad-constellation GNSS support capabilities.
Industries that demand lower costs, security and extended product lifecycles now have more options with the ME910C1-AU module, said Telit. The longevity of the LTE Cat M1 standard and extensive feature set make it an ideal solution for new and existing applications in vertical segments like telematics, smart energy and metering, asset tracking, retail, point-of-sale, security and surveillance, industrial control and automation, smart home, and smart buildings.
