Telit Wireless (News - Alert) Solutions, a provider of next generation communications networks including machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, announced the rollout of its LE910 LTE (News - Alert) module series that delivers 100Mpbs download and 50Mbps upload speeds.
Initial variants of the LTE module series will be available for North America and Europe.
The LE910 is a member of Telit's flagship xE910 module family and its first series delivering 4G radio access technology in the 28.2 x 28.2 x 2.2 mm family form factor, Telit said.
The new LTE modules are ideal for applications in areas such as Telematics for in-vehicle infotainment, video security and surveillance, outdoor signs and displays, business terminals and consumer products such as mobile hot-spots.
Telit is also offering the operator specific variants in North America for AT&T (News - Alert) and Verizon each with band counts and frequencies addressing the needs of the individual carriers.
The European variant will cover the region’s three popular LTE bands, two HSPA bands and quad-band GSM/GPRS.
The LE910 series supports advanced technologies such as Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and multiple-input, multiple-output technology (MIMO), essential for data rate and link reliability in the current wireless communication systems market which includes LTE.
This module series was designed to help early adopters of LTE get started with their designs leveraging a unique combination of features with LTE, GNSS and fallback technologies in a compact form factor, Telit officials said.
Additionally it supports circuit switched fallback (CSFB) allowing the modules to sustain voice and SMS services through automatic fallback to 3G or 2G when an LTE network is not present, when roaming, or if IP Multimedia Subsystem (News - Alert) (IMS) is not supported by the network.
The extensive interface set includes USB, SPI, I2C and user definable GPIOs. RIL and USB drivers for the top operating system platforms ensure ease of integration with consumer and mobile computing devices.
"The series will roll out first in North America and Europe where integrators and mobile operators are keen on delivering the benefits of high-speed data to mobile platforms, particularly in Telematics and mobile broadband applications,” said Felix Marchal, CPO at Telit Wireless Solutions, in a statement.
