Answering the demand for remote learning solutions amid Covid-19 pandemic
PARIS, France – February 4, 2021 – Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS), leading provider of chips and modules for broadband, critical, and massive IoT, and AMIT Wireless, maker of wireless M2M and IoT solutions worldwide, have collaborated on two new connectivity devices to facilitate distance learning. Both are based on Sequans Cassiopeia CB610L module, optimized for CBRS OnGo networks in the USA. One is a USB dongle (IDG120-C6U01) that connects laptops or other USB equipment to CBRS OnGo networks; and the other is a cellular WAN (wide area network) extender (IDG500-C6012) that connects existing Ethernet based equipment to CBRS OnGo networks.
“The global pandemic has created high demand for distance learning using CBRS private networks and solutions,” said Bertrand Debray, VP and head of Sequans broadband IoT business unit. “AMIT has tremendous expertise in networking and product design and has built two powerful connectivity solutions that have all of the necessary capabilities needed to facilitate high speed distance learning with robust data throughput. We are pleased to work with AMIT to make these important solutions available at this time.”
“We selected Sequans’ Cassiopeia CB610L module to provide the connectivity for our USB dongle and WAN extender because Sequans is an expert in 3.5 GHz connectivity, and we believe the module is the most robust and feature-rich CBRS connectivity solution available today,” said Dennis Wu, vice president, sales and business development, AMIT Wireless. “Partnering with Sequans we are able to offer cutting edge distance learning solutions that connect to CBRS networks in an instant, with high speed, robust and reliable connectivity.”
