PARIS, France – June 3, 2021 – Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS), leading provider of chips and modules for broadband, critical, and massive IoT, announced that BEC Technologies, manufacturer of 4G/5G broadband networking solutions, is using Sequans’ Cassiopeia Cat 4 CBRS module to connect a new 4G/LTE router that is designed to be a cost-effective solution for schools to facilitate distance learning during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.

“We are proud to work with BEC to connect their new router that makes it possible for schools to set up distance learning in a way that is not only high speed and reliable, but cost-effective, giving schools exactly what they need to teach classes remotely using private CBRS networks,” said Bertrand Debray, VP and GM, Broadband IoT, Sequans. “The global pandemic has created high demand for distance learning solutions using CBRS networks, and the BEC Mini 4G/LTE CBRS Wi-Fi Router is the perfect solution.”

“Sequans is an expert in cellular IoT connectivity, and their module has all the right features at the right price to make distance learning work for schools and their students,” said D’Andre Ladson, VP Marketing, BEC Technologies. “Using Sequans’ CBRS module, we can offer a very high-value router that keeps students connected without interruption.  Education organizations deploying private LTE CBRS networks now have a solution for secure, reliable high-speed connectivity with complete flexibility and control.”

BEC Mini 4G/LTE CBRS Wi-Fi Router

The BEC MX-241NP Mini 4G/LTE CBRS Wi-Fi Router supports the LTE Category 4 data rate and is fully compliant for operation on the 3.5 GHz CBRS band. Designed for fast deployment, the router supports hassle-free subscriber self-installation whereby users simply power on and instantly connect. Anyone with some basic tech knowledge should breeze through it. To ensure reliable, consistent connectivity for distance learning and other advanced services, the MX-241NP offers dual-WAN functionality with automatic failover to another internet provider, multiple Gigabit Ethernet interfaces for wired device connections, high-power long-range Wi-Fi, and Power over Ethernet (PoE) for flexible placement or redundant power. A versatile and feature-rich platform, the BEC MX-241NP is a best-in-class solution combining carrier-grade functionality with robust LTE connectivity at a competitive price.
