In 2003, Georges Karam and a team of broadband experts from Alcatel and Pacific Broadband founded Sequans as a pure play 4G chip company to address the WiMAX market, where it became the recognized leader by 2011.

Sequans went on to deliver three generations of WiMAX technology and then four generations of LTE technology in quick succession, delivering its first LTE chip, Colibri, in 2010. Sequans became known as a leader in LTE for IoT when it developed the first IoT-optimized Category 1 (Cat 1) chipset, Calliope, which quickly took hold in the market as an IoT low cost and low power solution, and today is deployed by leading operators, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and NTT DoCoMo.

In another industry first, Sequans then introduced the world’s first LTE-M/NB-IoT single chip solution, Monarch, based on the 3GPP Release 13 narrowband standard, published in June of 2016. Because of its leadership position in bringing this newest narrowband LTE technology to market, Sequans powered the very first LTE Cat M1 devices in the market and became a chosen technology partner of some of the world’s leading IoT market leaders, including operators Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, NTT DoCoMo, and KDDI, and LTE module makers Gemalto, WNC, Foxconn, Wisol, Asiatelco, USI, Pycom, Fibocom, and technology leaders Skyworks and STMicroelectronics.
