New Sequans LTE for IoT Module certified by AT&T

Sequans Communications S.A. has announced that its newest EZLinkLTE module, the US60L, has been certified to operate on AT&T’s 4G LTE network, having achieved technical acceptance (TA) from AT&T’s Network Ready Lab.

At the heart of the module is Sequans’ IoT-optimised, LTE Cat 4-capable chipset, Colibri, along with memory, power management and a complete RF front-end, all in a single, affordable, compact, surface-mount package.

“The new US60L module, now certified on AT&T’s network, is the first in a family of pin-compatible Sequans modules designed for the US LTE market,” said Craig Miller, Sequans VP of marketing, “We’re confident it will be of great value to IoT device designers in several vertical markets as it is an ideal solution for applications in areas including telematics, security, and surveillance, to name a few. It provides an all-in-one connectivity solution that comes pre-integrated and pre-certified, significantly reducing time to market for device makers.”

AT&T’s Network Ready Lab program ensures that a module receiving AT&T’s technical acceptance meets AT&T’s performance, interoperability and feature requirements, and that it is approved to operate on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. The US60L module, certified by AT&T on LTE bands 2, 4, 5 and 12, is based on Sequans’ Colibri LTE chipset platform that was ADAPT verified by AT&T late last year. The module is manufactured by Wistron NeWeb Corporation, a longtime partner of Sequans.

Cameron Coursey, VP of product development for AT&T’s IoT Solutions Group, said, “This is a great offer for AT&T and its IoT customers: an affordable, IoT-ready, AT&T-certified, LTE-only module. It makes the AT&T network even more accessible to a range of IoT applications, and we’re excited to see innovative companies like Sequans lead the ecosystem in this important direction.”

The US60L module is based on Sequans’ Colibri LTE chipset platform and is a member of Sequans’ StreamliteLTE™ family of LTE for IoT products, providing an extremely cost-effective solution for a wide range of M2M modules and devices requiring higher throughput, as well as for consumer tablets, mobile PCs, and home and mobile routers.

Sequans EZLinkLTE US60L module features:

  • Based on Sequans’ Colibri LTE chipset platform
  1. 3GPP Release 10/11 compliant
  2. Up to LTE UE Category 4 throughput (150 Mbps DL)
  3. Fully integrated on-modem VoLTE capable
  4. Available support for eMBMS and location services
  • Support as certified for LTE bands 2,4,5 and 12 (pin-compatible variant adds support for bands 13 and 17)
  • PTCRB compliant
  • Embedded OMA-DM
  • Supports most leading OS options
  • IoT-friendly interfaces
  • 31.5 x 22 x 1.92 mm LGA package
