Gemalto LTE-M wireless module earns certification for IoT devices

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

Gemalto, the world in security has earned certification for its award-winning Cinterion LTE-M module expanding cellular connectivity possibilities for solutions. Using very little and IoT-optimized bandwidth, the module enables highly efficient use of existing networks.

It is ideal for 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, POS and Early pilot programs are deploying in January with volume shipping to follow in Q1 2018.

A seamless migration path towards global LTE-M

The Cinterion EMS31 LTE-M module is designed based on flexible RF which supports evolving multi-band and use. With support for 10 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, and solutions.

Setting new standards for power efficiency and responsiveness

A highly efficient Transport Layer Security (TLS) implementation significantly speeds the module's secure handshake for improved power savings. In addition, proprietary 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 such as tracking and tracing devices.

eSIM ready for easy connectivity bundling

The module can be customized with (eSIM) to support easy IoT connectivity offer bundling. Combining two components into one reduces module size and total cost of ownership while simplifying development and logistics and strengthening tamper resistance and security.

"(LPWAN) are growing at a compound annual growth rate of 206 percent and LTE-M networks are being deployed all over the world," said Sam Lucero, for IoT at "Gemalto's EMS31 LTE-M is well positioned to be a in the category supporting a multitude of low bandwidth, mobile IoT use cases."

"The robust Cinterion M module combines the longevity, reliability and ubiquity of cellular connectivity with the efficiency and cost economy of - exactly what the majority of new IoT solutions require," said Andreas Haegele, IoT Products, "Together with AT&T, is revolutionizing cellular possibilities for the IoT, allowing connected assets, smart homes and smart cities to instantly connect and stay securely connected over the long lifetime of IoT devices.
