Telit said that its quad-band, dual-mode ME910C1-AU, based on the Qualcomm MDM9206 LTE IoT modem, is the first module to receive LTE Category M1 (Cat M1) certification for operation on Telstra’s mobile network. “Certification means IoT integrators and providers looking to deploy in Australia can quickly start taking advantage of the reliability and around three million square kilometers of Telstra’s LTE Cat M1 coverage built specifically for the IoT”, the company stated.
ME910C1-AU module expedites migration of existing 2G/3G connections and shortens time-to-market for new Cat M1 devices for the Australian market
The ME910C1 is ideal for a broad range of applications like telematics, smart energy and metering, asset tracking, retail, point-of-sale, security and surveillance, industrial control and automation, smart home, and smart buildings.
Notably, ME910C1-AU module can easily be applied as a pin-to-pin replacement for existing devices based on the family’s modules for 2G, 3G, LTE Categories 1, 3 and 4.
In addition, the module also features optimized power consumption and optional quad-constellation GNSS support capabilities.
“Industries that demand lower costs, security and extended product lifecycles now have more options with the Telit ME910C1-AU”, the company said.
“This certification is a first in many ways for Telit,” said Yosi Fait, Telit CEO. “The ME910 is the first to receive Telstra Cat M1 certification; it is the first regional market launch of the dual-mode Cat M1 and NB1 module series of the ME910C1; and it is the first IoT module form-factor in Australia available for all commercially available cellular standards in the region. With it, our existing customers integrating or selling products into Australia using 2G or 3G modules from the xE910 family, can now simply drop in the new ME910C1-AU and start testing Cat M1 in a matter of weeks. New projects can also get to market quickly with assistance from our network of customer support centers and distributors available in the same time zone with local presence in a number of metropolitan areas in Australia.”
