Internet of Things technology innovator Link Labs is developing a Cat M1 Sensor Suite planned for later this year for the Verizon (NASDAQ, NYSE: VZ) LTE network, the company said.
Link Labs will integrate the Sequans (NYSE: SQNS) Monarch chipset into both OEM systems and a fully integrated Sensor Suite.
The Link Labs LTE-M1 Sensor Suite will offer an open source hardware and software platform to accelerate solution development and lower costs for manufacturers and solution providers. The Sensor Suite is based on Link Labs software which makes utilizing the low power features of LTE-M1 easy to implement out of the box. The Link Labs solution also makes use of the Verizon Thingspace platform for device provisioning and management.
Based in Annapolis, Maryland, Link Labs provides low-power, wide-area network technologies that power the Internet of Things (IoT). The company was founded in 2014 by a group of veteran engineers from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab, who had worked together on a variety of projects for the US Department of Defense, telecommunications industry, and Intelligence Community.
Verizon Communications, headquartered in New York City, has a diverse workforce of nearly 162,700 and generated nearly USD132 billion in 2015 revenues.
Sequans Communications S.A. is a 4G chipmaker and leading provider of single-mode LTE chipset solutions to wireless device manufacturers worldwide.
