Gemalto announces a platform of innovative Cinterion IoT Modules based on the latest Qualcomm 9205 LTE IoT modem from Qualcomm Technologies. The new solution is designed to support global LTE-M and NB-IoT connectivity with optional 2G fallback from a single, ultra-small IoT module. Ready for the latest 3GPP specifications (Rel 14), the platform will be loaded with Gemalto security and value-added features specifically designed for compact, power-efficient IoT applications including smart meters, asset trackers, healthcare, wearable and smart city solutions.
“Gemalto’s Cinterion LPWAN IoT Module Platform will bring together our deep expertise in both IoT connectivity and digital security and provide a wealth of unique features that can allow device manufacturers to take the lead in IoT innovation,”said Andreas Haegele, SVP IoT Products, Gemalto. “Our continued collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies allows us to deliver on our customer promise of innovating new technologies to advance connectivity possibilities, support their business success and enable trust in the IoT.”
To be available in the second half of 2019, the first Cinterion products based on Qualcomm Technologies’ next-gen IoT LTE chipset will include the multimode Cinterion EXS62 IoT Module and Cinterion EXS82 IoT Module with 2G fallback. The miniaturized solutions are designed to deliver global connectivity and extended coverage range with support of power class 5. This can enable up to 70% reduced power consumption helping to preserve the battery for applications in remote locations. It can also reduce cost and complexity for device makers and ensures worldwide reliability, which is crucial for the 6 billion new IoT devices expected to leverage LPWAN connectivity by 20261.
“We are excited to work with strong industry leaders like Gemalto to expand the horizon of possibility in IoT solutions,” said Vieri Vanghi, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Europe, Inc. “Our collaboration with Gemalto on their new Cinterion LPWAN IoT Module Platform can allow OEMs to easily integrate and launch products using our cutting-edge Qualcomm 9205 LTE IoT modem, and in doing so, they will help enable massive IoT connectivity that can transform industries and make life better.”
