Verizon has launched LTE-M products Monarch Go and Monarch GPS for companies to fast-track commercial deployments of wireless-IoT connected devices. The plug-and-play devices are based on Sequans Communications Monarch GM01Q LTE-M module. The company said that the Monarch Go family of devices is available in the U.S through solutions provider Avnet. It will make it available globally later this year.
Georges Karam, Sequans CEO said, “Cost and time are the two biggest barriers device makers face when deploying next-generation cellular devices to the market. Monarch Go, on Verizon’s LTE network coupled with ThingSpace IoT platform, allows for easy connection to cloud services from third parties. We believe that this is going to be a game-changer for the industry.”
ThingSpace-enabled IoT SIM
The products come with an optimized LTE antenna and a pre-installed ThingSpace-enabled IoT SIM as per the company. The Monarch Go and Monarch Go-GPS come with optional Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and Bluetooth capabilities.
Brian Mecum, vice president, Verizon said, “Monarch Go is an industry-first, game-changing IoT accelerator that not only significantly reduces time-to-market to the absolute minimum, but also removes the risk for our customers by requiring minimal certification. Monarch Go, based on Sequans’ industry-leading Monarch technology, is a powerful solution with key IoT capabilities, including ultra-low power consumption. It just works, and our partners appreciate this tremendously.”
