u-blox said it has announced TOBY-L201, the world´s first 4G LTE Cat 4 module with 3G WCDMA fall-back, which works on AT&T (NYSE: T) and Verizon (NYSE: VZ) networks.
TOBY-L201 switches automatically or via AT command to AT&T´s or Verizon´s network, without the need to load new firmware. Depending on which carrier´s SIM card is inserted, TOBY-L201 recognizes the carrier and starts on that carrier´s network. If devices are equipped with two SIM cards or a configurable SIM chip, TOBY-L201 can be switched between operators on-the-fly via a simple AT command.
The versatile TOBY-L201 module offers best-in-class download speeds up to 150 Mbps and comes in a miniature 24.8 x 35.6 mm LGA form factor. It operates from -40Â°C to +85Â°C, making it suitable for most demanding automotive, industrial, and consumer devices. TOBY-L201 is ideal for infotainment systems, telematics control units, rugged mobile terminals, set-top boxes, notebooks, tablets, as well as high-speed M2M applications like alarm panels, digital signage, mobile health, remote security and video systems.
Linux supports TOBY-L201 modules natively, while u-blox provides RIL software for Android and Embedded Windows free of charge.
The modules are produced in ISO/TS 16949 automotive-certified production sites to ensure the highest quality and reliability.
