Gemalto Cat 1 LTE connectivity solution wins ‘Most Innovative Application’ award

Gemalto has won the Most Innovative LTE Application and Service Award for its Cinterion® Cat 1 LTE wireless module.

The award programme, hosted by Informa and LTE North America, honours the industry’s best innovations improving the future of cellular networks throughout the region. The Gemalto solution was selected “for enabling highly efficient connectivity over LTE networks for purpose designed machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions needing mid-tier speed while requiring the longevity and reliability of LTE.

The first to market Gemalto Cinterion Cat 1 LTE device is revolutionising connectivity for mid-tier bandwidth M2M IoT applications including smart metering, mHealth and fleet management. The module enables 10 Mbps downlink speed and 5 Mbps uplink on LTE networks coupled with reduced M2M module size, low power consumption and significant cost efficiency.

As 2G and 3G networks phase out, the solution fills the need for efficient 4G connectivity to support billions of new connections and the anticipated year-over-year growth of nearly 35% in the United States alone.

“This module is the first in a series of next generation LTE products that are uniquely positioned to support growing customer need for easy to integrate, cost effective 4G M2M connectivity solutions,” said Juan Carlos Lazcano, VP of M2M for North America at Gemalto. “Sharing the same footprint as existing Cinterion industrial portfolio products and forthcoming LTE modules, the solution enables easy migration to LTE from 2G and 3G devices.”
