January 9, 2018

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – January 9, 2018 – LTE for IoT chipmaker Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS) has successfully demonstrated the VoLTE (voice over LTE) capabilities of its Monarch LTE Platform live on Verizon’s LTE Cat M1 network.

There are many M2M and IoT applications in a wide variety of market sectors that can benefit from voice capability, including security and alarm systems for home and business, health monitoring wearables, automatic teller machines, retail kiosks, package drop-off stations, fitness bands, in-car emergency applications, people trackers, call boxes for elevators and roadside assistance, parking kiosks, and vending machines.

“VoLTE is needed for many LTE for IoT applications and this successful test of VoLTE on Verizon shows how the market reach of Verizon’s LTE-M network can be extended to include many more applications,” said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. “Alarm systems, health wearables, and even feature phones that will run on 4G-only networks will all benefit from VoLTE capability.”

Monarch is Sequans’ LTE Cat M1/NB1 Platform, compliant with the 3GPP Release 13 LTE Advanced Pro standard. The VoLTE capabilities of Sequans’ Monarch LTE Cat M1 Platform are enabled by a fully integrated on-chip IMS stack. The platform supports LTE quality of service for fast call setup and low-latency voice calls. Monarch also supports advanced calling features and several major voice codecs.
