Gemalto LTE-M Wireless Module Earns AT&T Certification

Expanding highly efficient cellular connectivity for IoT devices

Gemalto has earned AT&T certification for its award-winning Cinterion LTE-M IoT module, expanding cellular connectivity possibilities for IoT solutions.

Using very little energy and IoT-optimized bandwidth, the Gemalto module enables highly efficient use of existing 4G networks. It is ideal for IoT solutions with limited power budgets and which do not require high data throughput such as metering, asset management, remote monitoring and control, healthcare, security systems, P?OS and smart city applications. Early pilot programs are deploying in January with volume shipping to follow in Q1 2018.

The Cinterion EMS31 LTE-M module is designed based on flexible RF which supports evolving multi-band and multi-technology use. With support for 10 LTE frequency bands, future versions will enable additional bands to allow for global coverage. This eliminates the need for multiple variants for simplified global deployment and a very fast time to market. The module shares a common footprint with other Cinterion Industrial  Modules providing a seamless migration path for existing 2G, 3G and 4G solutions.

A highly-efficient Transport Layer Security (TLS) implementation significantly speeds the module's secure digital handshake for improved power savings. In addition, proprietary technology enables quick wake-up and shut down that is 15 times faster than traditional systems. This Gemalto-unique feature improves responsiveness, reduces latency issues and significantly saves power to extend battery life for power sensitive applications such as tracking and tracing devices.
