Remo Wireless Selects CLOE IoT Platform from Sequans and STMicroelectronics to Design IoT Tracker Devices for Customers Worldwide
February 12, 2018

PARIS, France and Geneva, Switzerland – February 12, 2018 – Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS), leading LTE-for-IoT chipmaker, and STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, announced that Remo Wireless, a China-based maker of IoT devices and integrated solutions, has selected Sequans’ and ST’s CLOE IoT tracker platform to design into a variety of IoT tracker products for customers in North America, Japan, and China. CLOE — connecting and locating objects everywhere — combines Sequans’ Monarch LTE-M/NB-IoT (Long-Term Evolution 4G technology) chip with ST’s Teseo III GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) chip in an all-in-one IoT tracker product-development solution for ODMs worldwide.

“We selected CLOE because it delivers the most powerful IoT tracker development solution we’ve seen anywhere by combining the best-in-class technologies from both Sequans and ST,” said Lu Biao, senior marketing and sales director, Remo Wireless. “CLOE is a complete and compact pre-integrated solution that includes LTE-M, MEMS, and GNSS, and can be expanded to include Bluetooth low energy and Wi-Fi in an extremely small form factor. We are developing solutions including asset trackers, pets, and kids’ trackers, on-board diagnosis II (OBDII) devices, and more.”

“Remo Wireless is a very aggressive and successful ODM and our collaboration with them on CLOE is yielding excellent results,” said Danny Kedar, VP, IoT Business Unit, Sequans. “CLOE’s power as a turnkey tracker solution is being put to good use with Remo customers who are designing highly efficient LTE for IoT trackers for several applications.”

“CLOE is a result of our close and efficient cooperation with Sequans, and Remo Wireless is the first ODM to benefit from it,” said Antonio Radaelli, Infotainment BU Director, STMicroelectronics. “The tracker products Remo is developing will benefit from CLOE’s integrated LTE-M and GNSS capabilities that we combined to operate independently at the lowest possible power consumption.”

A turnkey IoT tracker solution for OEMs and ODMs, CLOE integrates a power management unit (PMU), LTE, GNSS, memories and a microcontroller in a very small 30 x 40 mm package. CLOE is intelligently engineered to address multiple tracking applications with best-in-class battery life, location accuracy, reachability, mobility, and reporting periodicity. Designed with separated GNSS, LTE-M, and application domain power systems, CLOE allows its GNSS subsystem to continue to track while other domains are shut down, allowing rock-bottom power consumption.

CLOE is available now and is optimized for production based on a full bill of materials that includes LTE, GNSS, accelerometer, power supply, battery management, LED, and button management. The modular design enables copy/paste to optimize BOM cost and is easily customizable.

At Mobile World Congress, February 26 – March 1, Sequans will have on display the Bailong Telematics LTE-M On-Board-Unit of Remo Wireless.  Please visit us in hall 5, stand 5C87.
