Telit providing LTE Category M1 module with Verizon, Qualcomm

Internet of Things (IoT) enabler Telit (AIM: TCM) is collaborating with Verizon (NYSE, NASDAQ: VZ) as a key supplier of IoT modules for the carrier´s LTE Category M1 (LTE-M1) service, the company said.

In cooperation with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, Telit is delivering IoT modules in full alignment with Verizon´s features and timing requirements. IoT integrators and providers in the US and other regions looking to export to North America will be able to apply knowledge and experience designing for the popular form xE910 factor to take advantage of Verizon´s nationwide LTE-M1 coverage planned to occur by the end of Q1 2017.

The ME910C1-NV, is a LTE-CAT M1 IoT module based on Qualcomm Technologies´ MDM9206 modem. Qualcomm Technologies´ CAT M1 products are fundamental to the rollout planned by Verizon, and Telit is working closely with both companies to ensure the timely availability of its module. Because the module is a member of Telit´s best-selling xE910 family, it can be applied as a drop-in replacement in existing devices based on family models for 2G, 3G and even higher categories of LTE. The ME910C1-NV natively supports Verizon´s ThingSpace platform, the carrier´s Web-based developer platform for IoT.
