LTE chipmaker, Sequans recently introduced Monarch N, an NB-IoT platform designed and optimized for pure NB-IoT operation to enable massive IoT deployment.

Monarch N is a single-chip LTE Cat NB1/NB2 platform, compliant with 3GPP release 14/15 of the LTE Advanced Pro standard. Monarch N is highly integrated and includes all primary functions in a small chip scale package (CSP), enabling modules smaller than 10 x 10 mm.

The NB-IoT-only solution with its 200 kHz channel size takes up very little spectrum so operators can deploy it in guard bands with no disturbance to their existing LTE-M network operations that are used for higher-end IoT applications, said Sequans. 

Georges Karam, CEO, Sequans
Monarch N expands our StreamliteLTE product portfolio and allows our customers to select the platform best optimized to fit their particular IoT application, with no compromise on cost or performance.

Chris Schmidt, Executive Director, Verizon 
Monarch N is an ideal solution for Verizon’s LTE NB-IoT Guard band deployment plan where our aim is to provide customers with low-cost options for LTE LPWA applications.
